    Sure Baas let me see where I put mine and I will copy and send it. PM me your email address.

    Found it. Will copy and send today. It is actually a Kavango manual I got with my Namib!

    We have a 2011 Namib SX. Bought it second hand a few years ago.
    Richard on the forum here said he had an accident (and rolled his Namib if I remember correctly) which testifies to just how tough these vans are. He was very unhappy with the coupler as a cause of the accident.

    First thing we did was replaced the carpet with Belgotex flooring which is water proof and easier to keep clean.
    Replaced shower and window curtains.
    Fitted a Snowmaster 80L expedition series with remote monitor.
    Painted the freezer frame with 2K to match van colour.
    Made up a whole new awning plus an extension (2.4m plus 1.8m) No more rain water problems!
    Made up a complete storm strap system.
    Side awning to park vehicle under. (2nd freezer in back of car)
    Chucked the mattress out and use 2 x 10cm Tentco Self inflating mattresses.
    Made covers for Alko corner steadies to keep muck out while travelling.
    100W panel on the roof with a 2nd 100W panel that can be placed in direct sun.
    WRND DC to DC plus solar charging with one of those nice meters from 4x4 direct to show status.
    Got the van with 2 x 70a/h Willard Leisure batteries which will do for now.
    Found the geyser was connected without / prior to the vans DB / earth leakage system. Fitted another earth leakage system for the geyser and connected a wire and plug up for the freezer to run on 220V as well as 12V.
    Bluetooth battery monitor.
    An intelligent charger as the std one makes a noise at night.
