    Re: Tow Dolly regulations

    From both a safety as well as a stress point of view, I strongly recommend you go the a-frame route. A dolly is an emergency option at best IMO. The only downside of an a-frame is that you cannot...

    Only read this thread now. Will most definitely go and look tomorrow if my towbar has something like this. I have never heard about this and must confess I have never paid attention either.

    Re: BMW/MINI Sandton Ė IS IT A SCAM?

    I recommend you be very careful with how you phrase your social media campaign. Complaining about poor service is one thing, but openly accusing them of a scam, could cause you a LOT of trouble.

    Re: Olive die Patrol - Wat doen Ek??

    Verkoop, Petri.

    Jou game is karre uitsnuffel, opkikker en dan swaai. Jy sal wel een of ander tyd n ander kar raakloop wat al jou bokse tiek, en dan begin daar weer n nuwe journey vir jou.

    Re: Route from Morgans Bay into Natal

    N2 remains the best option, despite its challenges. Just make sure you don't drive through the Transkei at night and prepare for your trip to take longer than anticipated.

    Re: Suzuki Ertiga

    Also keep in mind that manufacturers' specs are as at sea level. Altitude up here in Gauteng reduces that by a significant margin.

    Re: Spare wheel braai grid.. Who uses it?

    I have never seen one like in Hedge's OP, but my choice has always been a little fold up grid in a bag - weighs nothing, takes up no space and a grid is easier to clean than a solid flat surface.

    I think it is a combination of 2 factors: firstly you will have fewer people around (ie less noise, voices, music, push bikes, etc) and secondly the whole experience is different.

    In this case it almost makes up 50% of the total costs. It skews the numbers IMO.

    surely tires should not be included in this specific case as it applies to any vehicle - unless you had to replace them directly after purchasing.

    Volgens oom Dave Pepler het die voer van voels geen permanente negatiewe effek nie. Dit skep nie die afhanklikheid soos by ander diere nie.

    Also prefer to go "alone". Have camped with others before without a problem. But definitely not in big groups - that just wont work for us.
