First Shipment of Trailblazers to Our German Partners

Last week was a very busy time for Team Trailblazer. We had to build, and ship by container eight Trailblazer BBQs, of various sizes, to our German resellers. The factory was in full swing in the run up to making the shipment but we found time to take some photos of our trailers before they were wrapped and tied down into the container. Note the Trailblazer 120 Mini Mobile (without towbar).
