    There are two bunduawn options for the afrispoor. The standerd L shape 270 and the L shape 270 square back. Witch one is better? I would like to fit one but is undecided. Can you please give advice.

    I have the square back but seldom put a pole in that corner. I use a bungee cord and anchor that point to the ground making it a normal L shape with a bit more privacy/wind protection.

    Good idea then you can use it anyway you like. As the standerd one or as a sqaureback!

    Thanks

    Hi all

    Good thread!

    We received our 4 sleeper Cheetah in March this year after a waiting period of 7 months.

    Took it for it's first ever trip up to Botswana in June. We visited the Moremi (South Gate, Third Bridge and North Gate) and then stayed at Tshaa in the Khwai area. From there moved up north to Chobe and stayed at Munchenje.
    We traveled on some pretty bad roads (corrugated, dust and heavy sand) and I am glad to report that the Cheetah performed very well.

    The only small issue we experienced is that there were some dust that entered the kitchen area (area where door is used as a working surface) on the right hand side. I suspect that the material used as a cover over the cable for the table may be pushing the door away from the rubber seal slightly. Not sure if anyone else experienced the same in the past? Apart from this everything worked perfectly and we are looking forward to planning our next trip.

    I attach some pictures of the Cheetah during our trip.Click image for larger version.

    Nice photos, reminded me of our first trip to Etosha when we first received our Cougar. First photo is of our first camp in Kalahari rest, Kang.

    Also a couple of photos of nice camping spots

    May just need to adjust the nuts on the locks to pull the door a little tighter

    Love the thread! Great idea!
    I have a comment and a question.

    Comment - The bag that holds the awning that goes over the second bed in the 4 sleeper. Make sure the zip meets in the middle of the bag near one of the tie down's, not at the back by the Afrispoor stickers. I made that mistake, and the flapping at 100km/h did some damage to the paint work.

    Question - I want to install Anderson cables on the tow vehicle to charge the van batteries when we are travelling. Does anyone know if the van has DC - DC protection that it will not run the car battery down when the vehicle is stopped, or would I need to install something with the cables?

    I can help you with that, you probably have an HCdP power supply and in that case it does have a Dc to DC charger.
    Take a pic of the power supply and the Brad harrison plug on the trailer and whats app it to me on 0834535374.

    The charge is one way only and will not drain the vehicle battery on the hcdp unit.
    What I do with my side awning is latch it to the padlock that I use to lock down the roof

    Thanks! The lock is a good idea. Schoolboy oversight on my part I will make sure it doesn't happen again!

    It must be a common problem as it was something David mentioned, thus my thought of using to lock for to reasons
    I also have key alike locks all around
