    Great surprise yesterday. BL managed to get it here in time for me to start tinkering this weekend.

    On Friday had a "last minute" father and son camp night. What an absolute pleasure to just stop at a site, move the caravan around myself, level, pop the roof, open one bed and light the fire...

    We are off to Waterberg Wilderness from Thursday...cannot wait! The beauty of the BL is it's ease of use. Pack food and clothes and off you go. Quick set up and relax.

    Hi, This is not a review but i would appreciate your advice. We are travelling to Namibia for the first time with our Bushlapa.

    What spares/extras do we need to take with us for the Bush lapa?

    I am thinking Bearing kit, Suspension bolts, blou draad and cable ties.

    Any others?

    Spot on, we always carry all those spares as well for the BL.

    One other thing you might want to add, is bolts for the coupler.

    I would also suggest you find some way to protect your caravan from stones. Some use a custom travel blanket over the nose. We have a cover over the nose cone and made a net which hangs between the car and the caravan. Hubby also extended the vehicles mud flaps and painted the wheel arches of the caravan with stone chip protection.

    EDIT: in fact if your BL is older or have already done some rough roads, I would replace the suspension bolts, coupler bolts and bearings before you leave. After we broke a suspension bolt, we view them as service items and they are inspected regularly and will be replaced when needed.

    +1 with what Christa said above.

    Edit - check if you have the upgraded bolts on the leaf springs. BL should also be able to tell you if you have the new ones depending on your B number. Non of the upgraded bolts have failed yet. It is still good to have spare ones. If you still have the standard bolts that came with the Burquip axle, rather upgrade them as it involves drilling the bushes for the meatier bolt to fit.....not something you want to attempt in the bush... Bush Lapa started upgrading them as standard quite some time ago and also do all vans that goes in for services.

    +1 on what Lekhubu said.

    During our recent Namibia trip, I detected side ways play on the coupler. Fitted new bolts and nylock nuts together with some Locktite. The next day at the next camp, after driving the road from Sossusvlei to Mirabib - worst corrugations I have ever experienced on this road, there was sideways play again. Added locknuts to the existing and fortunately no problems since then.

    This was the first time (BL now 6 years old) that I experienced anything suspension related coming loose.
