I am always extremely jealous of the US campers.

They make extensive use of sides to create more space.

I really do not like to pitch a tent just for a week-end.

Remember, here at the sea we have something called wind and it does not always play nice with tents.

 

I guess the question is why we do not see more manufacturers use slides?

Only one I have seen to date is Mobi lodge, but they priced very high.

Ek hou van die idee....maar al te veel gehoor van klagtes waar water inlek by skuif gedeelte tydens kamp en stof inkom tydens ry.

Die Mobi Lodge en die Nayela Okapi.

Laasgenoemde is 'n pragtige karavaan. Word in Bethlehem omgewing gemaak.

Vriende het hul sin laasjaar November gekry en was Desember in Botswana.

Vrou sê haar stofsuier suig minder stof.

The slide-outs does not seem to be that popular in South Africa.  I think we tend more to the side of real camping where the caravan is primarily the sleeping area while we spend more time outside enjoying nature.  The caravan thus is a means of temporary accommodation.   The Americans might see 'camping' more of living in a movable home which would  explain the large number of massive motor homes. They would therefore require as much living space as possible.

Saw one of those American slide outs in Tshipise last year June. With a 6 liter diesel RAM to match.

Groete,

Thanks Relaxed Camper for the foto.

Yes, it is those I am talking about.

I also understand that they might have issues with dirt or rough roads.

But really, I would also like to camp in winter, but here next to the coast you have both wind and rain. It does get miserable inside a tent after a day or two.
