    Braked trailers and caravans don't have chains, but they do have a safety cable that activates the handbrake.

    Re: Namibia Swakopmund camp

    Don't bother taking meat to Nam. It is cheaper there and available everywhere.
    Rather take veggies and fruit over, you'll pay a lot more for veggies, and the selection isn’t great.

    Our 2L ASX isn't exactly economical. But I would not mind trading it for an AWD Mitsubishi. Will need to get over my disdain for the local dealership come service time though.

    Thats a rather narrow definition of success.
    You are comparing a narrow model range against brands with wide model ranges.
