  1. Re: Caravan temperature reduction – metal roof isolation

    I know Louis oradba69 installed some insolation under the roof carpet in his Afrispoor Cheetah, maybe contact him.

    Re: Vx 200 LC roof rack.

    I know Paul Marsh prefers Eezi-awn over Frontrunner even though he uses both for his builds, so maybe look at it as well.
  3. Re: SOLAR CHOICE RSA: Lithium Ion Battery Scam?

    Not necessarily a scam, companies go belly up every day.

    Re: Freezer question

    Just remember if you only need a fridge, you can set both sides of the 90 to the same temperature. Also keep in mind 2 fridges means 2 compressors for which you ideally require 2 batteries.

  12. Re: Is a portable braai a necessity when overlanding.

    Re: Ewiks movers remote cable question.

    It's R1750 including installation. I doubt it will be that simple, it took Ewiks quite a while to get it to a point where they were confident enough to put it on the market.
