    Default Offroad caravan for 2

    I would appreciate any info on a offroad caravan with 2 single beds.We have been to the Beeld Outdoor Show but none appealed to us.I would like to get something the size of a Jurgens Xcape,slide out kitchen and fridge ,popup roof and 2 FULSIZE SINGLE BEDS. The choice of actually viewing caravans here in Namibia is quite limited.
    How's the Imagine?
    Gecko?
    Looking forward to your expert advice.

    Bushwacker's (Nam) sells the Jurgens. Layout etc is good, but not sure how durable they are. Many are very satisfied, but they need maintenance form time to time, (what I was told from owners) but at least they have an agent here.

    Bushlapa is also a good option. Well build.

    The Imagine also have a good layout. Also many good reports on them. They deliver in Namibia.

    I had a look at the above and decided on the Echo Kavango. (LA Sport is the agent not that it says anything. They take anyway too a bit cut.) The Eco Namib was a bit to cramped for us. No wood inside, layout inside maybe not the best but good enough. Simple enough to maintain if any.

    None with single beds. But 3 x or 4x sleep options .

    The rest I dont know. There might be better.

    Basie have you looked at the Bushlapa products? They have a 2, 3 and 4 sleep - all the same footprint. All have double bed at the side and either a single or double bed in the front, for the 3 and 4 sleeper respectively. A small difference in weight between the 3 but not major.
    There are a few Bushlapas in Namibia already.
    Well build and durable, light and easy to handle and tow.
    Feel free to ask questions to better understand what the product can deliver.
    Good luck with your search.

    I looked at the Conquerer Commander (?) today.Liked the 2 parallel single beds but the overall size just too big.I tow with a Prado 3.0 d4d and Cruiser V6.

    Baie ek sien jy is in Swakopmund - was paasnaweek daar - by kinders gekuier. Gaan Augustus weer daardie rigting en die Bushlapa Vlooi gaan saam!
    So by die see en die soutpaaie sou ek aanraai om eerder na produkte te kyk wat van stainless steel en alu gebou is. Die ander gaan net vir jou probleme veroorsaak. Dit maak jou keuse wel so bietjie kleiner maar daar is goeie produkte beskikbaar.
    Probeer nog verstaan hoekom jy spesifiek 2 enkel beddens soek - daar is nie sulke modelle waarvan ek bewus is nie. Vat maar die 2 dubbel beddens dan het jy meer as genoeg plek!

    As dit nie vir die 2 enkel beddens was nie sou ek die Afrispoor Cheetah aanbeveel het. Voldoen andersins aan al jou behoeftes.

    @basie oosthuizen - Sal 2 x slaapsakke op 'n dubbelbed dalk jou voorkeur bevredig?

    Jy kry ook die Sprite Tourerwat ' n Gravel Roader is, maar het net dubbel bed, en die Sherpa Tiny Gravel Roader wat 'n opsie van twee enkel beddens het en is klein en lig. Die is uit "Fibre Glass" gebou, so sal nie maklik by julle roes nie.
    Moet net oppas vir die konwentionele Karavane wat uit hout gebou is, die sal maklik daar by julle houtvrot optel.
    Kyk dus na iets wat uit aluminium of stainless steel gebou is of fibre glass...

    Dis waar ja, maar as jy langer as 1.7 m is, is daai voorbed nie lekker nie.

    Ek weet.

    Dit is hoekom Boskriek verander het in Miskruier.
