    A few I had at here. Note we've removed most of the awnings, so these are not the full awnings.

    What is the price of a Echo 3 trailer standard? And with the extras like Dirks' above?

    Very much under correction, about R65k. PM Stockman on the forum, he's an Echo agent.

    Frik, just a few comments that will hopefully help:

    The Oryx is heavy compared to the Echo (I don't have the weights with me at hand but go and have a look)

    Packing on the Oryx often result in a lot of stuff packed loose into the caravaan from the back and when you want to sleep or do something you must first take out the stuff - getting very frustrated

    You can sleep 4 but 2 seperately in a "rooftop" tent fixed at the front - meaning that 2 of you will be outside the caravaan: who will that be, the children? No, it will be you with one of the children at the front!!

    In my opinion the Echo is a much better option. With the Echo you do not only adres the above factors but a lot of others as well.

    Willem thanks for this info I think I have made up my mind to settle for a Echo 3. Will soon discuss with my bank manager. Me and the missus plan a long overland mission next year Dec and I think the Echo is a very practical trailer with the required luxuries that we want.

    Dirk, where does your fridge / freezer go? If I remember correctly the Echo does not cater for a fridge / freezer.

    Regards,

    Hi Tinus

    Sorry for chirping in here. I have opted to put my battery and fridge on the bakkie personally I think the suspension is softer and more generious on the fridge. And the beers are closer to me

    Hi Tinus,

    As Frik I also keep the fridges in the vehicle for same reasons. Drive behind an off-road trailer in offroad conditions and after that you will not want to put a fridge in there - "dit hop laat dit bars!!"
