    That quick Pitch is awesome even though quite expensive, but as far as I know it's just over a meter wide so I don't see how you can mount it, the side bed's lid is in the way.

    This is a not a picture of my setup, but a picture I copied off the other Afrispoor thread. Courtesy of Rudi P. Mine look the same.

    My understanding of the QuickPitch is that it's a 4-sided tube when open. I believe the shower which hangs from the hoop that comes standard with the Cheetah is 3-sided, and the two loose ends slide into vertical slots on the side of the caravan. This allows you to access the hatch where the handheld shower rose and basin are situated. It would be interesting to see how difficult it is to access this hatch with the QuickPitch.

    There is also the small matter of the cost of the QP. I hear it's around R10k vs zero cost for the standard unit.

    Must say my wife is very happy with the std side shower. It's big inside so that in the wind the sides don't stick to you. And it takes a couple of minutes to errect. I was thinking however of getting rid of the velcro straps and using heavy duty shower hooks, still looking at this option

    The Quickpitch has an open as standard that does allow access to the shower hatch. No hassle at all. It is not nearly as expensive, I paid far less than R5k for mine, and that was in January.
    I paid this with a smile, as it save the setting up of the standard one and no need for storage space for the standard one. When I bought my Cheetah the factory gave me discount for not taking the standard shower cubicle.

    How small does the standard cubicle which they supply with the Cheetah pack up and where do you guys store it?
    I don't drink water, unless it's been through a brewery first.
    You probably heard people saying Africa is not for sissies. Well, neither is it for wussy equipment.

    I store my cover in the side drawer and it takes up very little space

    I was at the Malmesbury show the past weekend, the newer QuickPitch now has a silver lining inside which provides better privacy. The older model does show your silhouette if you shower with the lights on.
