    Nee nie noodwendig nie, as die kombuis gedeelte terugedruk is dan is die bed net bokant dit (jy klim met n leertjie tot op die bed) maar die spasie is dan baie minder in die wa self.

    Sekerlik een van die mooiste indien nie die beste kampeerder wat ek al gesien het nie op n 4WD

    Please parafanaylya, tell us about the route you have taken, I am dying to see , did you go the Seikel route

    Would also like to see if FORD , will bring the AWD Transit double cab to our shores in 2013 , that will be nice with the Duratorq 2.2 D as in Ranger and Defender, it will also make an excellent conversiOn like the VW

    @ KOOS BEST

    Very busy at the moment, but will compile the story with images when the heat is off.

    I leave for Maun next week and a solar electric installation in the Okavango. Building the control panel and testing.

    Can anyone confirm that traffic cops are stopping 4x4 s at weighbridges on N1 and N7 to check weight? I have heard a few have been caught and taken off the road ( new version of off-road !).
    Don't think this VW conversion would pass the test if stopped ?

    Depends on licensing mass. Check your disc and weigh the kombi. 990kg is my limit.

    Chances are this Double Cab 4Motion T5 has a GVM of 3200kg, and it would have had a licencing mass of around 1800kg. I reckon it is well within the law!

    A very nice looking build.

    My only other comment being that the wheels look a bit on the small side (diameter).
