    Always take the sides as we generally in unfenced areas and always handy for shade and windbreak - just swambo and myself

    It is actually a question with no real answer, as we all camp different.

    We take the sides with because we have spend to much time trying to shelter from wind behind a car with previous set-ups. Also in places like CKGR and Mabua, one or 2 sides does give some safety protection even if no kids are around.

    No need either to take all of the sides, 2 is enough. The most frequently used one for us is the one at the fridge to keep dust and sand from the kitchen and/or shade for the fridge. We have always had wind in August in Botswana.

    The other we use are the 2 shade cloth sides from Romeo. They take no space and weigh nothing. They helped a lot at Nxai pan last year when we had a hot wind pumping for 4 days and South camp is quite dusty. They caught all the dust, evident from the cloud of dust when we shook them out.

    I always take the sides along (have the space so can just as well use it), but hardly ever use it. If wind does become a problem I'd only set up one panel as a windbreaker. The only time I've set up the full tent was when standing for 3 weeks over December.

    Also take all the sides, including the room divider, which makes the shower room if needed in remote site.

    They weigh very little, can be packed very small if folded nicely.

    What I like about the BL wing sides is that you use what is needed as.when it is needed. There has not been one camp that we have used them in the same manner every time.

    Those few KG's vs overall weight of our BL's is nothing compared to the versatility they provide.

    That is the long and short of it...

    I'm allergic to the side panels... They have a very special spot...in the roof of my garage.... It is not that I do not have space, I just do not like them blocking my view....en nee flip man, dit raak werk.... We only visit off the beaten track spots where we and our group are the only campers around so there is no need to hide .

    I only take them out for our Storms River trip once a year. On all our other trips and weekend getaways we either use just the wing, or no wing at all. Similar to Uys, the wing is hardly ever opened during across the border trips. Big reason being we do those trips in June / July. I'm sure I will sing a different tune if I visit neighbouring countries during summer .

    The side panels however, will not be part of my packing list...

    My family camps almost exclusively in the bush, save for the rare occasion that we're in Namibia and can experience the luxury of staying at a caravan campsite. So, those side walls, specifically the 2 rear ones and the room divider for the back of the Miskruier are used frequently to give some privacy from the prying eyes of all our friends in the bush.

    As others have said, they are quite light weight, can pack up under the side bed with the batteries, and stay out of the way. However, when I know that my camping trips are going to be caravan campsites, and have their own shade and bathrooms (namibia/SA), I leave them home. The space below that bed usually gets filled with goodies from Namibia or South Africa that we cannot get or pay a premium for in Angola. =)

    The easiest would be to buy one plank at a hardware store and cut the required lengths. But I'm actually looking for steel discs for this purpose. It will take up less space than wood. Any ideas?

    Some help please. We take possession of our Baobab at the start of July. We know the Baobab comes standard with crockery for 6 but don't know what this includes. Are there coffee cups, glasses, wine glasses etc. If there are assume they are stainless steel. If these are provided how are they stored? If they aren't provided are they an optional extra? If anyone has recently purchased please be kind enough to advise. Many thanks. Martin has answered this query, sorry to trouble you all.

    Glad you got helped, yes almost anything can be credited if you just talk to BL before the build.

    Standard is (was?) plates, bowls, small steel mugs and a couple of those S/S tumblers. We've chucked the fairly useless mugs and replaced with decent ones and added glasses and plastic cups for the kids.

    So yesterday I stared at my kitchen setup (this is the result from a lack of camping) and thought to myself the ice cream containers work perfectly well to compartmentalize, but they do look a bit on the cheap side. Took some measurements of the bottom compartment and had a maximum of 270mm(h) x 290mm (w) x 630mm (l) to play with. Most plastic containers are 300mm, but I found these square Addis 6l containers that fits nicely (250x250) and two can stack on top of each other (260mm). They're R74 at Mambo's. Bought 4 of them and the kitchen isn't just looking neater, but there's even more open space now! One on the top rack has all the spices and sauces (lidless), two others (bottom left) has all the spare food and dry foods and one has all the cleaning stuff, ziploc bags, ice bags and black bags etc).

    Nice George.

    Yes we also went that route and it works great. Although my bins look different, same idea.

    Sorry about the bad stitched pic, this is all I have.

    Top row we have 3 x high containers and a dedicated Bread bin that seals proper.
    Bottom right is spare for extra drinks etc etc.
    Bottom Left has 2 x half height containers that stack, and then open space next to it for eggs, rusks etc.

    What I like about these ones are they open easily one handed, stack nicely, and because of the slant design, creates tunnels at the bottom between them for things like foil, cling wrap rolls etc.
