    Default Armadillo Van

    Hi, I am new to the forum, been reading most of the threads posted.
    last week my wife and I took delivery of our off road van, towing from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth demonstrated how stable and easy she was to tow.

    the people at Eko Veld Gear are wonderful people to do business with, hope they sell many more vans.

    Well BL was a copy of the Conquerer.
    The word Dzombo is derived from the Tsonga word Dzombolo meaning ‘to wait for something that is slow in coming.
    Named after one of the Magnificent Seven, sadly killed by a Poacher Oct 1995 @ 50 years old.
    Dzombo1 Ex Army LR TD upgraded to 200 Tdi
    Dzombo2 1997 Discovery 300Tdi man
    Dzombo3 2000 Jeep GC 3.0 Diesel a/t
    Dzombo4 2005 Hilux KZTE Legend 35
    The Dustbin- 2009 Skipper model T.
    The secret- something in the making.

    Lots of differences between conqueror and BL, even if they did copy initially....but now it is getting bad when you can hardly spot the difference.

    As a complete outsider dreaming of also owning an off-road caravan in the near future just my 2c...................

    1) I had a look at this trailer at the Beeld show (if I recall correctly) and there is a huge number of differences between this one and the BL
    2) Seriously how many options are there really available to change a trailers 'shape' without compromising on the packing, sleeping, drag, etc....... Labelling a manufacturer as a 'copy-cat' without substance is in my book a bit harsh....

    Enjoy the van......
