    You can get the tubing here: http://www.nfm.co.za/ but not sure if it is a bit far for you to drive.

    Dankie man. Ek het eintlik gehoop om 20x20 sq tubing met connect it blokkies te kry maar dit lyk asof mens net 25mm connect it kry.

    What will you plug into the USB port?

    Jy kry deesdae die 20mm ook. Maizys in Silverton hou die 25 en 20mm aan.

    Dankie. Gaan die 20mm sterk genoeg wees vir awning?

    Ek het die 25mm gebruik vir n Ostrich wing tipe awning en hy het lieflik gewerk tot die eerste briesie opgesteek het. Nou gebruik ek maar n paar straps om hom in plek te hou

    My design gaan net effens bulky wees op die jimny se dak as ek 25mm gebruik. Maar ook nie regtig erger of hoŽr as jou average RTT nie.

    Ek sÍ nie 20mm gaan nie werk nie, maar as jou awning nie pote het nie moet jy hom maar dophou wanneer hy oop is en daar is wind. Myne het omgebuig en op die dak gaan lÍ.

    Jip myne gaan eintlik baie pote he, omtren 7/8 actually. Dis gladnie n quickfix design soos ostrich wing nie, gaan so 10min langer vat om op te slaan, maar met n vierkantige vorm gaan hy meer skadu area gee.

    For over landing I don't tow, but for the normal weekend away camping I use my Campmaster 7 foot trailer. I fitted a oldish and full of holes Front runner RR, that I fixed and closed all the holes. I upgraded the leaf springs from 4 to 6 blades. I also fitted a extension box, for the future I fitted jerry can brackets and a gas bottle holder, because i am going to build a strong Subframe and A Frame somthat i can take it offroad. i does have a 1.2 ton axel. I built a drawer system using connect it connectors, slides and ammo cases. This drawer fits at the back where the rear doors of the trailer open. This is where the camping things like clothes, dry food, cutlery etc will go. My Fridge is always in the back of the Pajero, connected to the dual battery. In the trailer I put the tent, two gazebo, chairs, groundsheet and mattresses. In the campsite nothing is standing around, only a camping table and chairs onder the gazebo, and the tent under the 2nd one. Everything else will be in the drawer. I put the bikes and wood on top of the roof rack, workes great. Almost finished the wiring and lights for the back.
