  1. Re: Jurgens Magnificent 1978 - remote off-grid living

    This issue has been discussed quite extensively, it almost derailed this thread. :cool: We have the original Ice Craft Caravanner 85, but the 12V is not an option as it consumes too much electricity...
  2. Re: Jurgens Magnificent 1978 - remote off-grid living

    Yes, the thermoelectric was just a temporary thing. Will definitely get a 'proper' fridge in the future. Just need to 1) Save up for one and 2) figure out where and how to fit it in. A dual...
  3. Re: Jurgens Magnificent 1978 - remote off-grid living

    Sorry for the long radio silence.

    When the lockdown restrictions started to ease we took the opportunity to go visit friends and family in Cape Town.

    We recently returned to Prince Albert and...
  4. Re: Jurgens Magnificent 1978 - remote off-grid living

    We unfortunately didn't measure it, but below 5 would be my guess. So not near Sutherland's -8, but still pretty cold.
  5. Re: Jurgens Magnificent 1978 - remote off-grid living

    Thanks for all the replies guys and sorry for my absence. Looks like these 3-way fridges are quite the conversation starters with lot's of contradiction.

    I ordered a solar panel and a charge...
  6. Re: Old School Adventure Bike - Which One?? (Post Pics!!!)

    Awesome thread.

    One of my first 'proper' bikes was a 1987 Suzuki DR600, it only had a kick starter with a compression lever. I bought it for R15 000, but then it needed quite a lot of repairs. My...
  7. Re: Jurgens Magnificent 1978 - remote off-grid living

    We still work online, we have good Vodacom reception here. We also visit the in-laws at the main farm house on most days and join them for some meals as we don't yet have the fridge and things...
  8. Re: Jurgens Magnificent 1978 - remote off-grid living

    @jelo Yes, the build quality is really good. We towed it to Prince Albert from Hartenbos and it felt really solid. Would have been nice to actually use it as a caravan, but for now and probably the...
  9. Re: Jurgens Magnificent 1978 - remote off-grid living

    Just found this panorama and wanted to add it. Complete isolation. For now in the winter it is fine, but in summer we'll either have to build a shade cover or covid will be over and we can travel...
  10. Re: Jurgens Magnificent 1978 - remote off-grid living

    Just meant the gas wasn't connected. Attached some photos. I think even though it would be cool to have the 'original', a new fridge would probably be more efficient.

    @Damdan Thanks. Also think...
  11. Re: Jurgens Magnificent 1978 - remote off-grid living

    Dankie. Dit is nogal ongelooflik lekker om wakker te word met die sonsopkoms so deur die venster en net natuur rondom mens te sien. Ook doodstil in die aande en mens kan selfs die sterre sien terwyl...
  12. Re: Jurgens Magnificent 1978 - remote off-grid living

    It's 42 years old (probably). It's an ice craft caravanner 85. Even if I get it working according to some posts on this forum it is not very efficient. If someone knows more about it I'd be willing...
  13. Re: Jurgens Magnificent 1978 - remote off-grid living

    Thanks, sounds like the type of thing we're looking for. Do you know any online caravan shops that can deliver?




    The caravan had a 'caravan-plug' which basically just powers a multi-plug and...
  14. Jurgens Magnificent 1978 - remote off-grid living

    When the threat of Covid-19 started to emerge in February we decided to buy a caravan and to live in isolation for the foreseeable future.

    We got this cute Jurgens Magnificent 1978 the day before...

    Re: Angola Trip Report November

    P.S. Does anybody have more information on that stretch of road between Lucira and Dombe Grande with all the ghost bridges. Is it just a matter of running out of money or is there some more...

    Re: Angola Trip Report November

    Thank you for all the comments and appreciation, makes it worth posting here.

    Our friend also made four videos of the trip. Two of them I already posted on the Botswana thread that I posted...

    Angola Trip Report November

    This is from our blog. We visited Angola after touring through Botswana for a month and then staying with a friend in Namibia for two weeks. We wild camped in Angola for 8 of the 9 nights.

  20. Re: Two Monkeys + 1 to Botswana and perhaps beyond

    Thanks, there's some nice songs. Will take some time to resync the clips to a new track and to then upload 1GB again on Namibia's slow internet.

    Here's some videos of our time in Angola that...
  21. Re: Two Monkeys + 1 to Botswana and perhaps beyond

    Had a bad feeling that may happen, it works in Namibia... Thanks. Will probably have to just get some open source song.
  22. Re: Two Monkeys + 1 to Botswana and perhaps beyond

    We finally got internet to upload a video we made of Botswana. Enjoy.

  23. Re: Two Monkeys + 1 to Botswana and perhaps beyond

    Sorry for the long delay. The rest of the Botswana trip was amazing. We did get stuck between elephants, but that added to the memories. Somehow we didn't see any lions in Botswana, but I guess...

    Seems like we somehow had two unrelated problems at the same time. Or could it be related?

    Re: Hilux not starting in Maun

    So after putting the fully charged battery, that checked out OK, back in the Hilux, it still didn't start. Just the same click sound and then nothing.

    After rechecking everything I just turned the...

    Hilux not starting in Maun

    We made it all the way to Maun into the Khwai and back to Maun, but now the Hilux won't start. Battery seems fine: 12.4V, but when turning the ignition you only hear the click and then nothing. No...

    Can also confirm like in recent trip reports that the roads are terrible. Someone at the gate said they are busy 'assembling' the equipment to try and 'fix' some of the roads, but I guess that could...
  31. Two Monkeys + 1 to Botswana and perhaps beyond

    So we ended up not selling the Hilux, but rather storing it while we backpacked the Indian sub-continent for some change of scenery. For those interested in what it looks like over there you can have...
