I recently saw something about Stealth Caravans on a forum where the conversation seemingly ignored the caravan that was featured.

So I Googled.  Stealth Caravans in Britain had a shortlived life.  I trust that whoever brought the product to SA has improved on the quality issues of the UK built products.

The local manufacturer does not have website - or else using the name "Stealth Caravans" does not offer a website address or any manufacturers info.  The company in Swaziland also initially avoided being open on a website.   Google does give reference to a local magazine website but I refrain from mentioning that incase I end up on an elimination list wink and then I lose my monthly download of a magazine.

The first thing I notice is that the width (2399mm) exceeds that of a standard garage door.   The OKTO van was also a too wide van despite the "fit through a garage door" being one of the apparent features.

The average sedan is not wide enopugh to 'see' past these vans.  Even a 'bakkie' will have a problem unless one opts for a rearview camera. 

Wou net iets sê oor die karavaan.

groete

Theo I see you mention the door width of 2399mm. As far as I know I did not request wider garage doors and mine happens to be 2460mm and the side frames are about 15mm to the inside of the plaster. I was under the impression one can get higher doors but thought the width is pretty standard. My doors are roll-up.

Further as you indicated normal towing mirrors would not be able to see the whole area to the side of the caravan from front to back as per current laws thus this problem cannot be solved with a camera behind the caravan.

Stealth in Durban is a well known  kayak/canoe business.

Don't know if there are any connection to the new caravan manufacturer.

Hi Butts, like Jan said, this Stealth is lekker local, based in Durban.

Stealth is just the name of the caravan brand. It is being manufactured by a company called Profibre Products – a specialist composite manufacturer of bus, truck and train components.

And while this is their first completed caravan being supplied direct to caravan dealers, we have learned that Profibre has, in fact, been building fibreglass bodies for off-road caravans on behalf of a leading local brand for some years.

Hi Danie-SLK,  Ek is verkeerd.  My Wispeco roldeure meet 2500mm van binne die glyrame.    Die deurwydte van pleister tot pleister is 2350mm.  Die destydse bouer kon die deure effens wyer gemaak het dan kon so 'n wa op 'n nugter dag inpas.  D

Dankie Jan en Francois vir die terugvoer.

groete.

Dankie vir jou insae Francois. So leer ons en kry ons inligting rondom diegene wat in die kamp bedryf staan. Dit kan net goed wees vir alle kampers.

Ek het vandag vir my die Weg Ry & Sleep tydskrif gekoop. Daar is n artikel in oor hierdie karavaan. Ek weet nie of dit al genoem was nie....maar die gewig is na verwagting 1110-1200kg - volgens artikel

Ek sal ook op die uitkyk wees vir die tydskrif.  Wil ook so bietjie meer weet van die wa. Siende dat daar so bohaai gemaak word op FB en mens wat mekaar wil hof toe vat.
