    It all depends on age. We found the fold down to be simple but the Eezy is quicker to set up as a 1 man operation

    My only concern with the Eezy is that, in rain, water may accumulate on top. I don't know how much more expensive it is, if at all, but if more than R10k I wouldn't take it.

    Our 1st 2 trips with our eezy have been with heavy rain. The inner cross bar I moved forward about 150mm from the front and this stopped pooling of water. The cost difference is approx. 15g. We went this route due to our age and the fact that I am able to erect and pack on my own if so required

    Another option could probably be to just add a flysheet over the front bed hanging "over" the front part. Might keep the bed slightly cooler also.

    EDIT .... OK no sorry, my worry is null and void as there is a flysheet over the front. See here

    EDIT2.... This pic seems to indicate that the "new" awning is the HM swing awn. A friend has one on his Jurgens Trooper and it looks fairly sturdy.

    How much quicker is the setup? Initially I thought there wasn't much in it, but I see someone is selling a 2018 Serval cause they are buying an Eezy camper. I'm thinking for 15K you can get a caravan mover fitted...

    The HM Swing Awn looks really nice with built-in poles and guys, but it seems too short for the Cheetah and I'm struggling to see how it would cover the cooking area.

    Both awning that are currently supplied cover the kitchen area. And with side installed you can walk between the side panel and the sink unit. The one pictured in #13 has built in poles and all side panels zip onto the awning. The Bunduawn has loose poles and side panels fit with Velcro. the Bunduawn is quicker to erect and pack away. and seems more sturdy in wind. But the Velcro I do not like.

    Have all side panels. Only used them once after delivery so cannot really comment. But that once I didn't experience any problems. Had Velcro on my Conqueror awning and had no problems, even in fairly strong wind. So I assume the same for this setup.

    Factory is in the process of moving the mounting position of my fly sheet. It will now be fitted to the outside. This will give an approximate extra lift at the back of 75mm. This will reduce the chance of water build-up.
    Must say the easy camper is a breeze to set up. Can open and close alone and it takes just a couple of minutes.

    Not that much. But the fold down needs two people where as the eezy can be done with one person. Especially the packing away that is. A mover is 11500 and an investment im happy to make

    The stone protector has a large zipped pocket. Great place to store that wet ground sheet

    Yes, there are two large pockets, store the groundsheets in them.

    Inaugural trip to Suikerbossie Guest Farm, really happy with our choices.
    Happy with the Bunduawn - has legs built into the top “spreaders” that just drop down - guy ropes permanetly attached - square back for extra space when weather is unpleasant and the sides are put on - zips (not velcro) to attach the sides top and onto the other sides - all panels have windows or doors sewn into them - impossible for rain to collect on top. Fuel consumption went from 11L/100km without towing to 14L/100km driving 100 to 120km/h on tar and 40 to 80km/h on gravel. 2x Solar panels kept batteries topped up all the time.Click image for larger version.

    In the pictures the awning looks like Howling Moon's 'SwingAwn' and not a 'BunduAwn' by BunduTec.
