    For the Solar panels that are loose I just use the plug on the A-frame. I don't have panels on the roof. I have installed a HCDP charger on this "power" line.

    Just need to flip the switch between vehicle charging or Solar input.

    I also use the plug on the A-frame as per Bogaards; but use a "movable" MPPT together with the movable solar panels.

    Red BH to solar panels. Grey BH to battery via A-frame plug.

    Glued it in place with Pratley Steel, still holding good. I just scuffed the surface a bit and glued it then.

    A while back I decided to fit 2 drawers in the kitchen. So to the drawing board, laser cut, paint, assemble and install...
    Installed it today.
    Used Stainless steel.
    Pleased with the result.

    Hi Guys, we live in Swakop, Namibia, and have ordered a Boskriek. HOPEFULLY we will get the trailer 1st or 2nd week August, that's if we get non-essentials through the border in the next few weeks.
    Can anyone post a photo of how the front bed is supported when open? Does it have braces or gas shocks? Can't find any detail or photo.
    Much appreciated

    We ordered our Boskriek with the shower cubicle. Have found some photos of a miskruier with the cubicle and it seems that the cubicle is virtually right against the side bed. Surely that would block any airflow? Also, if the wind blows a bit, you have that constant flapping right by your head. Anyone got experience with that?
    Apologize for all the questions, but up here we can't go look at any trailers, all info is off the net

    Hi Mike. I have a Boskriek with a shower cubicle. I made a video when I just bought it which may help. https://youtu.be/Q0IVwLlpiJg

    Thanks a lot, definitely gives a good idea of the shower setup. Does it bother you when sleeping that the shower is right next to the bed? We do like the setup, where just concerned with the noise the shower could make when the wind is blowing.

    And so say all of us! Just shout if you want more info on the Boskriek. I know the games that your mind plays while you are waiting.
