A , A , A - because we don't want and don't have them in our caravan - makes camping easier, simpler and more hygienic in the RSA. SA caravans and camp grounds are not designed for them as in USA and N. America where they have the sewerage and grey water hook ups and dump facilities.
A A A - I don't need them and I don't want them. You really need some type of excercise.
When I had a caravan, (my last one was an Avon LT) which had the facility.....
A for all of them.
Basin: - Too much issue to fill tank ETC to use it, much easier to go to provided facilities
Water afslaan.... use a fabric softner bottle & empty in the morning
Nommer 2... Dit doen ek nie in n wa nie. As ek absolute nood het (omgekrapte maag), gebruik ek porta-potty / seat-en-sak in die tent
Shower: - Dont trust waterproofing in the cubical, an issue to get it all going, (clean / grey water tanks fill / empty...... Much easier to go to provided facilities.
I use plakkies in the shower and in the toilet, I never use the bath.
For basin I drop 1 capfull of savlon in the basin and wipe out the basin to disinfect the basin first.
Maybe, God willing, I might change my mind in future, but I have never had a shower in any of my vans, therefore I fail to see the true value of such.
Very interesting thread.
Without a doubt :
1 - C
2 - C
3 - C
For exactly the same reason that I prefer an ensuite facility at home, at a hotel room or a chalet.
I am at a stadium in my life where I would have said C - C - C
But seeing we have not got all these facilities in our caravan, I will say B - C - A
1- C: Critical - healthier after using No.2
2- C: Critical - Age 70+ night walks
3 - A: Not important - use facilities ablutions
MOOI man... Jaaa.... Neeee
It's the only bloody bottle I can find with an opening big enough......
only way i get SWAMBO to camp with me
When I had loads of Cane & Coke
Lewkker man (ouvrou)
When we camp we try to use private ablutions if available so if we need these facilities they are close by - otherwise we park within easy walking distance to the ablution blocks. Porta potties all start to stink after a while and the smells are off putting. In the USA most caravans (camp trailers/ RVs) come standard with all three plus air conditioner/heaters and most campgrounds are equipped for them. There are no smells or sewerage stink in an around the RVs and in the campground. Maybe sometime in the future SA may go that way who knows?
Herman, stem saam met jou. Dit gaan oor gemak, veiligheid, die weer, stap in die nag en jy is dalk helder wakker daarna, nie omdat jy oud is nie. Net jyself kan besluit wanneer jy die dag te oud is. Party mense is dalk oud op 50 en ander kan tot 80 vir ander ore aansit.
If you had it once you won't sommer want to be with out it.
Toilet is critical for night use and whenever you find dissatisfaction with ablutions - then atleast you have your own.
In most cases we camp over weekends and if for instance showers are not up to scratch do as you did in the army - bear it out until you get home.
Most of us use hand basins outside. I took mine out with the stove when replacing the cabinet top to gain more workable space. My wife wanted it back so I built it on top of a cupboard over the wheel arch when building the island bed - never been used since.
AAA- thats why there are ablutions
