    Re: Warning - Hyena inside Lower Sabie camp

    This is my biggest problem, I don't have any cars available which can tow a trailer with 750KG+ GVM but are a manual. For this reason I am leaning towards doing the EC. Unfortunately none of my...

    He also didn't tow a caravan.

    Check out Ed Bath's CKGR series on Youtube, I'm sure in the last video he listed his fuel consumption with the LC 200 & trailer

  12. Re: Custom Leisure Tech- Quick Pitch Roof Top Tent

    So keep in mind that I have the soft shell version but I'm pretty sure the interior space of the hard shells would be the same seeing as the aluminum frame is the limiting factor on the soft shell.

    Re: Is bigger BETTER? Camping fridge!!!!

    If fitting the fridge into your van / bakkie etc is not a problem I would definitely go bigger. One can never have too much cold storage space, only too little.

    2) Agreed it is smaller but the issue...

  27. Re: Which spinning reel for rock and surf angling?

    You never said anything anti grinder. What gave you the impression I was referring to you?

    I'm referring to those who make stupid comments like "real rock and surf anglers use multipliers".
