Does anyone have experience with the Obiqua camper, which is a camper that is loaded onto the vehicle's loading bin, not towed?

Please visit Infanta 4x4's website. My brother just had the Inkunzi fitted on his Toyota Cruiser. It is beautiful, sturdy and very practical.  We toured 2 weeks after he collected the vehicle from Jurie at Infanta in Swellendam . It was pure bliss.  You do not mention what you drive, but we can highly recommend at least talking to the people at Infanta.

Bob, buying one of those "fit-on-the-back" units requires specific needs from the owner. They are in the same category as a motor-home, only smaller. If you are absolutely certain you want to be "stuck" to your sleeping area at all times, then buy one. I have seen to many campers who felt that this unit prevents fast movement when camping. You must remember that a loading bay unit is not connected to the driving cab and when you end up in a camp in pouring rain you have to duck and dive. Most of those unites consist of only a sleeping area and most of the times you will end up under a canopy, next to the unit. The storage of this unit is also not so movable and once off loaded it is pretty much permanent.

Having said that, there are many campers who have no problem with a loading bay unit.  

It is always wise to rent such a unit first and see if you are happy with the concept.

Thanks for your advice. I have a Ford 2,2L d/c, and am looking specifically for a camper that can be loaded and unloaded.

Thanks for your comments. The type I'm looking at is one that can be removed from the loadbin when camping. The Obiqua has all the charateristics I'm looking for, but I'd like to have an opinion from someone who has one or has used one.
