    Ek sien as mens hom oplaai dan kom die foto baie swak uit. Probeer mysubs.co.za ek laai alles van daar af. Dit was wel n paar maande terug so weet nie of dit nog beskikbaar is nie.

    Ek het die artikel gescan - hier is die link na die artikel op Dropbox, die file is 11.5mb groot. Hoop dit help.

    Chris wys hoe om die tent op te vou. Kan sien dis nie sy eerste keer nie.

    Thanks Benhollie, much appreciated. I think I'm going to do almost the same but just with the smaller kitchen unit. I'm going through to Pta in two weeks time and will then try and finalise my trailer (but this time with SWAMBO's help).

    Looks very nice, something between the Outplay and the Outback

    Hopefully members can see the writing? The wegsleep article mentions a few negatives.

    The nose cone does come with a shock to lift the lid now.
    Turning the ladder sideways (which Chris tells you when you take ownership) makes it very easy to climb up and down -the ladder is not too far and easier to use than my previous roof top tent.

    The door that sits behind the ladder is not a problem at all. You just keep the door open. That way you have access to the items that are stored in the door.

    I don't want to blindly defend the trailer. I have critisised what I percieved to be problematic in previous posts. But I don't see the negatives mentioned in the article to be real issues at all. That is my experience and I have camped on 3 different occasions with this trailer. The best part is how quickly the tent sets up. You unzip the cover bag and it virtually pushes itself up.

    Bossie, wouldn't you think that a ladder attached to the bed would be better and saver? I must say I liked the setup I had in the Tentco TTT. More space around the ladder also.

    I had the tentco too. I prefer this ladder ... the flat bit that I put my foot down on is what I like. And you dont have to reverse off the bed. You sort of get down sideways. It is also at the end of the bed. With the tentco it was in the middle so you walked into the ladder as you enter the tent. So it saves a bit of space this way. I wasn't comparing this with other ladders though. I just wanted to say the article in weg sleep didn't put the ladder down sideways. And then getting up is difficult.

    So what it actually means is that you sort of climb past the bed by putting the ladder sideways and this makes it easyer to climd onto or off the bed?

    Lol .. I suppose what it means is that I need to take a video. But I get to put my foot down solidly on the first step down. Having just asked my wife ... she says she preferred the tentco ladder. So I reckon im biased.

    Hehe, no not necessary for a video though what I understand is the Tentco's (and similar ladders) first step is sort of just below the bed and the same width as the other steps (making it a bit difficult to climb sdown) where the loose step ladder's first step is more to the side and also wider than the other steps, therefore making it easier to use.

    Default Time for a break ...

    Anyone going away this weekend? Thinking of joining the parents at Pilans for the weekend.

    Oh by the way, what hose do you use to fill your water tank?

    And also, the height of the trailer is of such a nature that when you need to get the tent back into the bag, you work shoulder height - not above your head. I always wonder how people with trailers that are higher than themselves manage to get the tent back into its bag....?
