    hi GV, there is not adequate information on the website (specifications plus photos) to make an informed decision. What I have observed is the following; The weight of the 2 spare wheels on the back kitchen door looks seriously scary from an safety point of view (should those shocks collapse.) You also need to check on how the wheels are attached to the back door ie will it stand up to off road conditions? There is some practical issues like the kitchen area that is split in 2 and the way the roof opens up (limit the use of solar panels on the roof) One also cant see the sleeping area and storage area for clothes/food etc etc. Would also be nice to see all the tents pitched and how the shower arrangement works. Does it have a water tank. The low tare is a plus. I really think they should have included much more information that what they have on the web....this is extremely competitive market!

    What he said.
    If it's put together with the same lack of passion as their website, I wouldn't bother.

    I had a look at the "cub" model at a show last year. If they are satisfied with the finishing on the model they had on show, I would not bother, but that might just be me.

    Ok, I visited the factory and was informed of a 2019 model who's owner camped once but needs to sell. Met the owner there and bought it...
    So here are some more pics and you can wonder how much a 2019 would cost me with all you see

    Only one spare wheel at the back.
    Roof pitches very easy.
    Roof is high
    Large storage under bed
    Aircon under bed
    100l water
    geyser - electric & gas
    gas stove
    gas braai grill
    Kitchen at the back has nifty compartments
    2 battery & solar ready
    easy awn

    What stands out.
    Table opens on side and is sturdy. Window behind table (protected by table during driving)
    Sturdy washing line fold up in front of second door. Hang the supplied curtain(tent fabric there and you have your own shower or put your porta potty there.

    I was at the last expo and for the price this is not perfect but by far the easiest with most packing space. Permanent bed & simple tent. You can stop and sleep.
