    To all Members who have contributed in here............

    We took her camping, and had an absulote BLAST.

    https://www.4x4community.co.za/forum...Pics-attached)

    VERY easy to tow, manoevre (spelling) at the campsite and set up took maybe 10 minutes or less.

    Everything is easy peasy an at hand.

    We slept like babies.

    Only future mods - I'd like to be able to draw out that area under the front bed, its a bit of a hassle, you cant quickly grab a Sunlight Liquid or a lappie or whatever in the morning while there's still someone snoring away there.

    But once again, a VERY easy, no frills or gadgets or bla bla bla setup, and the Oztent fits snugly inside, and everything really was just a pleasure to set up and pack up again.

    Its also a bad(ish) 6km or so gravel road to the camping spot, and she handles it without breaking a sweat behind the old 60.

    PLENTY packing space, actually too much I think.

    I think those canvas cupboards were also a good idea I think - no issues there.

    But yes, again, a HUGE thanks for all the ideas and pointers in here, I think we gonna use this VERY VERY often over weekends.

    My wife is also hugely impressed by just how easy everything works.
