    Default Howling Moon Trailer Tent @ Borakalalo

    Hi everyone.

    I got delivery of my new Howling Moon Trailer Tent last Thursday.

    We tested it this weekend at Borakalalo's Moretele Camp. What a pleasure!

    Setting up & packing was easy (even doing on my own - wife is preggies) and everything fitted where it should and was made to fit. (Only one rope missing on canopy ridge-will ask for it from dealer-see hanging roof on photo).

    Was comfortable to such extent that wife wants to go camping again before due time!

    Borakalalo staff was VERY friendly and knowledgeable. Campground and ablutions (got no electricity) was neat, clean and quiet and because of gas geysers always had hot water. A pleasure to camp there and will go again!

    R73.00 pppn. Ek dink kinders was halfprys.

    Daar was net 3 staanplekke met mense op. Geen geraas. Ek het net bietjie kitaar om die kampvuur gespeel.

    Die otters het heelnag in die rivier gespeel. (Eerste nag gedink dis seekoeie! )

    Dis hoekom ek eers gedink het dit is seekoeie! Hulle het nooit geraas nie, die beweging was te vinnig en het geen spore gekry nie.

    Het krapmerke op die wal gekry met lang naels.

    Dit was die laaste kampeerder wat van die seekoeie probeer wegkom het.

    Dit kan 'n water likkewaan ook wees. Hulle het lekker LANG naels aan hulle pote...

    Ek het ook een van daardie setup's, met kante en alles wat die trailer totaal toemaak. 'n Goeie kopie dink ek en het dit goed uitgetoets nou met my 21 dae trip deur Namibia. Dif, kan jy vir my se waar daardie kampplek is waarvan jy praat. Man dit lyk lekker en sal graag wil gaan probeer.

    Hi Dif
    Just a quick tip as i have the same setup.
    On your guy ropes where they are sown on to the tent is a brass ring/eyelet.
    Clip this over the top of the pole that sticks out through the tentand when you pull the rope tight it does not strain the tent seam, as the eyelet and safety belt material take the strain.

    My eerste gedagte was presies dieselfde. Toe ons so 3 jaar gelede daar was het 'n ongeveer 1.5m likkewaan naby ons kampplek gebly. Hy het kort-kort kom kyk wat ons doen, maar sodra jy in sy rigting beweeg is hy so vinning soos blits in die water in. Heerlike kamp plekke en ook een van die beste "birding spots" naby Gauteng.

    O ja, nice trailer. Ek het vir die naweek die eerste keer met die Echo RTT op die Scooby gekamp. Nie so veelsydig i.t.v. pakplak soos my bakkie was nie, maar nogtans lekker en baie ligter op branstof. Het wel al in die rigting van 'n trailer begin dink.

    Thanks for the advice. Will look into it for sure!
