Just want to find out the ins and outs - the costs of campervans here is prhibitive to most and they are only getting more expensive.

Any ideas?

Buy a South African built RV... we have many available for sale on the CaravanParks.com classifieds section. 

Anyway why mess with imported equipment when we are supposed to be supportive of our local businesses and manufacturers.

I think the big thing why anyone would import a RV is because of the luxury of the overseas products.

To be honest the best here in SA cannot compare to any of those over seas. Downfall is:

  • Unless it comes from the UK it will be lefthand drive and that cannot be imported anymore. (New Road traffic act) so the moment it lands here you will need to rebuild it to be righthand drive. Extra costs.
  • Most of the hinges gadgets spares are not always available here so you will sit with a problem eventually.
  • Using that to travel Africa........... it must either be old and a Landrover or a new Toyota for spares.
  • Then the hose fittings, 12V switches, 220V plugin lead and sockets must in any case be changed to be used here in SA.
  • They are very large vehicles even the smallest ones out class those manufactured here in SA, and the resorts here do not cater for such large vehicles.

Yes they are great but in most cenarios great only for where they come from.  Buy a local product which is developed and manufactured for Africa. Will last you longer and when traveling spares are more readily available.

When I saw this post, I thought of someone I know someone who will be selling a RV Camper towards the end of this year, or early next year. I will post the particulars below.

If interested, please email me so that I can put you in direct contact with him. My mail is:

edgew60atgmaildotcom

Ja, ek sal seker die camper verkoop na die einde van die jaar se kant. Ek sal jou laat weet wanneer ek gereed is. Het jy iemand wat belangstel. Die camper het nuwe yskas, 4 plaar gasstoof met oond, mikrogolf, gas geyser, wat warm water maak vir stort en opwasbak, en 'n toilet. dit het dubbel agter, driekwart bed bokant die bestuurder, en enkel bed agter voorste sitplek. Voertuig is ook geregistreer om vyf mense te vat.

Dit is Mitsubishi L300 1995 met 22 349 km op die klok.

 

Wat soek jy vir die voertuig?

Die persoon sal wil weet of hul moet wag daarvoor, of sal dit bokant haar vuurmaakplek wees...

 

The person selling this camper bought it 2nd hand and used it once or twice, not really being campers as such. They moved, are now living in it at a camp site, with tents, while building a bussiness and home from scratch. Hense the low mileage on the camper. I was not looking at it from a buyers perspective, so did not do a thorough check on the vehicle. It is also not my kind of camper, as it is probably built for tar and gravel, but not really bush camping, where we like to go. To me it seemed to be in very good nick, with very low milage, for the model, and would probably be a very good buy for a prospective buyer, depending on what the seller wants for the vehicle. I am sure that you could get valuations for similar type vehicles and thrash out the selling price with the seller.

HERE!!!!! I am here!!!!!

Jis - just been busy with vendor applications for retailers - its complicated stuff adn i am expecting them to ask for a DNA sample soon.  But will be worth it in the end.  And once the pack is all together i can just send it out.

 

I have time to spare and have to build capital - but really INTERESTED.  So waiting is no problem.

 

I will DM (direct message) my e mail address.
