Has anyone seen the opus in real life. I really like the layout, it now has an optional loo compartment too. Not sure if it's synthetic or canvas.

It's been a difficult few years for the producers of tt's and fc's since the passing of Riva Dandy,no single firm has managed to take up the mantle of "Worlds ugliest unit". Many have tried,with orange roofs,brown canvas and interiors that look like hospital waiting rooms,but none have quite managed,until now.
Having said that,I like them a lot!

Hi there,
        I saw it at the NEC a couple of weeks ago & got talking to a man on the stand who said he had a relationship with the company, although he was actually selling motor movers next to their stall, so dont take what he said as gospel.
     However, i asked if it was made from cotton canvas and hes said "yes, the best tent canvas you can get" so possibly ten-cate.

Haven't seen one in the flesh but the design looks good although a little strange when erected.
On their website the cabin looks like canvas but the awning is stated to be polyester?

The biggest plus of these over the Pennine units is the payload it seems of around 400kg plus a roof mounted rack. They are at similar price point for size of unit.

Nice to see something different out there be interested to see if anyone gets one

I emailed them, they have one set up near their manufacturing plant in essex. A little far for us to go, maybe next year if we're ready to upgrade. I do like the layout and the lower trailer with bike rack. It's plated max is 1100kg, I wonder if they will replate them like pennine do. Out max for towing is 1000kg. We'd get away with a 300kg payload.

We currently have a demonstrator at our manufacturing plant in Essex near Clacton we can arrange for an appointment if you would like to come and see us.

Best wishes
