    Default Eko Veld Gear's Armadillo Shack

    Hi all, I am interested in the Armadillo Shack off road caravan. This van is a 2 sleeper with the bed inside the van and not a fold-out tent bed as most off-road vans have. I prefer to sleep inside and not in a fold out tent.
    Would like to hear if someone has knowledge of this van or any other van where the bed setup is inside. Not interested in any of the Jurgens off-road models.
    Will appreciate your feedback. Thanks.

    According to the manufacturer the shack is surprisingly popular. At the Malmesbury show I have seen others with also the fixed inside bed but the space inside the Armadillo was better.

    I have ordered the Plus and currently awaiting delivery.

    I see you are based in Cape Town. Give Riaan a shout, I am sure he will give you advise or show you one that they are busy with.

    Thanks johanventer, this is not quite what I am after, I'm looking for an off-road caravan where one sleeps inside the van and not in a fold-out tent like most vans, eg the Bushlapa.
    Any suggestions of such off-road vans ?

    After visiting the outdoor expo outside Malmesbury during Feb this year and googling the net broken I have finally decided after 5 months to take the plunge and the Armadillo Shack has been ordered.
    Thanks to Eko Veld Gear, Fanie and Riaan who manufacture this off-roader, stunning guys.
    This van certainly ticked all the boxes from probably the most easy setup and so many other favourable points.
    Now for the wait, but then as they say.....its worth while waiting for a good thing.

    Also looked at them and quite awesome vans. For your needs I think the best option around.
