    Am I the only one that started hating this thread? I want a new Defender, but not sure I'll fork out +-R1.2m for it. (assuming a SE with some extras)

    You there now? Was thinking of going there this coming weekend (if there's a spot), although we'll probably end up at Yzerfontein for quick getaway plus run the parkrun there on Saturday.

    Re: Bushlapa Miskruier vs Baobab 3 comparison

    That's about the only differences I'd guess. Moving around on grass / gravel might be an exercise and the awning will take a minute or 3 longer. Can't park in standard height garage either. In...

    I assume you've already attached the Xplorer and it's not towing level? Ideally you don't want the Xplorer to hang nose down. Lesser of a problem if hanging up, but still level is preferred. You...

    Discovery 4 Re: New tyres from Goodyear

    It was simply priced wrong. Had they made it R100k cheaper it would've competed directly with the Fortuner market. At a couple of quid below the S model, people rather opted for the latter. ...

    What's the function on your BL that you use least? Mine would be:

    1) Shower room
    2) Geyser
    3) Anything in the right hand side compartment behind the fridge

    I also loved the simplicity of the Hansen, but sadly they gave endless issues - hence their slow removal from most vans.

    Both are legit excuses 😋 The disadvantage however - the vans with interior space and an inside bed are quite large and heavy. Why not perhaps a normal caravan or one of those gravel roaders?
