    Packed all this plus an extra together bag and crate with kitchen stuff. Think it's time I start looking at a trailer or roof rack more seriously. Although I'm still surprised I got all that in there And I can still see out the back window.

    Must admit I went the roofrack option and saw this weekend it worked perfectly.

    On the roofrack had the Oztent RV5, two large stretchers and 1.22mm table.

    In the vehicle 50lt fridge, 25m extension, 6m groundsheet, 5 x 22lt Big Jim crates plus 1x 46lt big Jim crate, 2 x 3 partition sponge camping mattresses, 2 duvets, four pillows, 7kg gas bottle, 2 fleece blankets, and some odds and sods.

    @MayorGoodman
    Have you removed the rear seats from the jimny?
    if you don't mind me asking, what roof rack did you decide on?

    I bought the Easi-Awn K9. Cheapest and top quality / service.
    Yes I removed the back seats. Very easy to do.

    I thought I'd share how things work in the back of 'Junior' on a camping weekend:

    Behind the seats - pillows, gazebo, chair
    Battery #2
    Bottom front ammo box - Camping stuff (crockery, cutlery, torch, gas stove, pan, pot, kettle, axe, etc.)
    Bottom rear ammo box - Car stuff (jumper cables, tow ropes, tools, gloves, compressor, fuses, etc.)
    Top ammo box - Rooikrans, blitz
    Fridge - 24 bottles of beer, a good weekend's food for 1, empty space
    Right side - table, tent, mattress, sleeping bag
    Left side - Camera bag, shoes
    Bag on top - clothes, books, toiletries

    It's not the size that counts, but how well it performs in the bush.

    Very neat!

    What tent and Gazebo is that?

    Someone was looking the other day for a Gazebo which would fit into a Jimny?

    The gazebo is sticking out behind the passenger seat in the pic, but it fits down across behind the seats, with space for two chairs on top of it. I took the photo while I was stuffing pillows under it.
    It's a Natural Instincts 3x3 gazebo. Good packed size.

    The tent is an old K-way 2-3 person hiking tent. 2.5 kgs, alu pegs etc. Don't need more with a gazebo and ok weather. Similar to this: https://www.capeunionmart.co.za/k-wa...-2-person-tent
    The self-inflating mattress takes up more space then the tent

    Mark - What brand of table and size is that - also what is your
    experience of self inflating mattresses. Is the Outdoor Warehouse brand OK?

    The table is also a Natural Instincts (ODW) - the size is approximately 1000x500 I estimate. It would fit nicely under the roof rack actually now that I think about it... less rattling and neater.

    Yes, I use the ODW (First Ascent) self-inflating mattresses. I am actually fine with the very thin one (about 20mm thick when inflated), but lately I've upgraded to the thicker more expensive ones, so two can be stuck together. Expensive - about a grand - not sure how they compare to the Carmaquip ones for example. I prefer the self-inflating ones to any other mattress. Easy to get ready, to pack up, and perfectly comfy, even with a bad disc in my back.

    Decent equipment makes a huge difference when one camps.

    I am thinking about adding a self inflating to our RTT for additional comfort.

    Carmaquip looks good but maybe bulky to store in Jimny compared to Outdoor Warehouse?


    My lady likes a decent table - I only have a small (Checkers) plastic one and a smallish aluminium slat table.

    Yours do fit well under the roofrack - Frontrunner has a mod which raises the rack to allow for the table.

    Hi guys, I noted that this post is a bit old - any idea whether Orak's design will fit later Jimny models? I have a 2012 and looking to install a similar system.

    MY BAD - BROWSER INDICATED LAST POST WAS IN 2010. NO NEED FOR RESPONSE THANKS!

    are you sure.. I think the dimensions differ slightly when it comes to the cut outs.

    Maybe I was just having a non-brunette moment.

    I had the front runner table mounted under the front runner roof rack (with spacers as you mention) on one of my Jimnys. Wasn't cheap, I seem to recall almost 2k for the table, but it was good quality stuff and worked beautifully.

    The table had a aluminium frame and stainless steel top. Don't have photos with me now but I recall posting some back in the day.
