  1. Re: Richtersveld - possible in an Iveco 4x4 motorhome?

    Not bad for an average - mine is probably very similar on average.
  2. Re: Richtersveld - possible in an Iveco 4x4 motorhome?

    Driving at 90-100 I get 7.5km traveling along the coast north of Dbn. Driving up to Jhg from Pmb at 100km/hr returns just under 6km/l. Pottering around in low range gets 5 to 5.5km/l

    It's very...

    Re: Clamp Meter for DC amp readings

    It is a handy function. My DC current readings sometimes are not zero before clamping the meter over the cable. I then use the relative mode to "zero" the display.

    Am also very impressed with...

    Re: City of Cape Town and Traffic Fines

    I'm glad this did not happen to you on Pmb, Dbn, or some other cities in SA. CoCT is still a functional City, relatively speaking of course.
  6. Re: Jimny damage on roof where the roof rack fits on to the roof

    Agree. Common sense has to prevail. If I make and sell a RR which can handle 500kg, will I be to blame if the manufacture's specs are exceeded? Manufacture's specs trump everything. And BTW, I...

    Re: Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park tour

    Why do you want a 4x4? Are you intending to do some other off-road stuff, and the roads in and around Hluhluwe-Imfolozi do not require 4x4.

    Re: Battery Advice/Thoughts

    I agree with chatting to Jacque at Bushpower - he can source all the right stuff for you, even if it is not a normal stock item for him.

    I would not go with 4 separate batteries. There is a lot...

    Not handing in the yellow form (I think) confirming change of ownership is going to cost you. If you can't get hold of the new owner to negotiate a deal in your favour, cut your losses, pay the...

  11. Re: Richtersveld - possible in an Iveco 4x4 motorhome?

    I just checked and the track is wider on the Unimog - 2160mm outer sidewall to outer sidewall, much wider than the standard 4x4, and the Iveco. There are so many models, and wheelbase and tracks...

    What vehicle are you referring to? Our Iveco's wheel base (left to right) is about 1.5" wider than the LC 100 series - no damage to 2 spoor road edges. Tyre pressure on the road with it's bigger...
  14. Re: Richtersveld - possible in an Iveco 4x4 motorhome?

    No reason to get stuck more easily that another 4x4, they are very capable vehicles. Unless you are inexperienced with 4x4 travel.

    Why in a motorhome? Why not if it is capable? We've done the...
  15. Re: Richtersveld - possible in an Iveco 4x4 motorhome?

    I was also wondering about that - not worried about the 4x4 bits, but the narrow bits. I remember one place through the valley to de Hoop which did not leave much room either side of the Defender. ...

    Re: Best current Garmin for T4A

    I bet it will give the 276Cx competition. It's expensive when compared to the entry level GPSrs, like the NUVI, but well priced compared to the "professional" units.

  20. Re: Jimny damage on roof where the roof rack fits on to the roof

    The overlanding term is relative. By your definition it obviously does not fit. Neither does it by my current standards. But to many it can. There was a granny who recently overlanded to Europe...
  21. Re: Jimny damage on roof where the roof rack fits on to the roof

    1. I have not driven one yet, but know from friends who own them that point #1. is false. It's all relative and depends to what degree and how much ### you want to take with. It is certainly too...
