    Default Caravans with fixed bed

    I want to create a list of 2-sleeper off-road caravans with a fixed bed, i.e. no fold-out, slide-out or pop-up bed. It will make a search for such caravans much easier as I get the impression that this is a requirement for a lot of people. I am excluding the teardrop trailers herein as this is more aimed at caravans.

    The ones that I have identified (and with the input of others) are (with starting prices obtained from manufacturers' websites or advertised for sale as at date hereof):

    1. Bush Lapa Boabab 2 (R508 000.00)
    2. Adventure Xtreme Spartan Deluxe (with fixed bed option, it also has a slide-out option) (R394 900.00)
    3. Adventure Xtreme Warrior Deluxe (R290 500.00)
    4. Adventure Xtreme Viking (R230 000.00)
    5. Infanta Enkulu 1 (+-R399 900.00)
    6. Summit Karenga (starting at R370 000.00)
    7. Summit Kilimanjaro (although this is more of a 4 sleeper) (R580 000.00)
    8. Metalian M42 / Armadillo (starting at R540 000.00)
    9. Conqueror Supra I and II (camping trailers)
    10. Tuff Cats Mbada Nova 2 (starting at R489 000.00)
    11. Imagine Cruiservan (R510 000.00)
    12. Border X Extreme (starting at R379 000.00)
    13. Border X Outpost (starting at R525 000.00)
    14. Border X Expedition (starting at R629 000.00)
    15. ELXV Ghari (from R500 000.00 to R690 000.00)
    16. ELXV Ng'ombe (from R800 000.00 to R850 000.00)
    17. Moremi Max (starting at R185 000.00)
    18. Outbound Cyclone DB (R279 900.00)
    19. Unipod AdventurePod (R370 000.00 - one ad in Junkmail)
    20. Unipod ExpiditionPod
    21. Unipod BushPod (Some models).
    22. Afrispoor Caracal (from R629 000.00)
    23. Afrispoor Wildcat (R599 000.00)
    24. Gecko Xtreme (starting at R568 000.00)
    25. Stealth Cub Overlander (R395 000.00)
    26. Kampnet Stallion (fixed bed, also has a slide out option) (R293 500.00)


    I will update the list with new suggestions. We can maybe add websites and suggested starting prices later.

    Yes. There is a Metalian closed thread in the trailer/caravan sticky thread section where you will find more details on this caravan.

    I made a mistake with the Tuffcats Dingingwe. It has a slide-out bed. My bad.

    Will take it out. I will check all the others (when I have time) to see if they comply but at the moment I include all the suggestions.

    You can add the Gecko Xtreme to that list as well.

    I have updated the list in the first post with the starting prices of each caravan that I could find.

    I looked at it, very impressive! However, it is based on the teardrop trailers with basically only a bed inside. If I include this I should also include all the other teardrop trailers and the Raasblaar, which I have decided not to do.

    The Moremi Lite is more of a trailer than a caravan. I have already included the Moremi Max in the list.

    Die Mobilodge "Mobi XL" (https://mobilodge.com/models).
    Weet nie hoe jy oor die Mobilodge Continental voel nie - die bed skuif uit, maar die opslaan is vir my tonne makliker as die Supra II wat ek voor dit gehad het.

    Johan, (my groot vriend)

    Die UEV 25 kwalifiseer nie vir hierdie lys nie want dit is nie `n tweeslaper nie. Die UEV 14i (indrukwekkende wa) kwalifiseer ook nie want die plek waar die bed inpas moet 'gebou' word.
