The possibility of finding a tent for your van is very small.  Those tents were usually used every time that those caravans were used.

I would try to get someone to make a new one according the the current tent you have.

Yes the biggest problem is that the tent is totally different shape than that of the normal caravans so you can not even try to use that of another caravan.  And because the back is most of the times totally open the chances of not using the main tent during a trip is very small.

Sure hope you find one though.

I know a lady that made a tent for me by drawing pictures and taking measurements as we went along.  This was the outcome.

She works from her home in Centurion.  Maybe she can help. She uses the new type of material currently used for caravan tent roofs.

Mannie, laat maak vir jou 'n tent. As jy vir my jou epos stuur kan ek dalk vir jou 'n foto of 2 stuur van die custom tent wat ek vir my Scout gehad het. Ongelukkig het ek die karavaan intussen verkoop. Praat met Aamir by Venture Tents in Krugersdorp as jy dal een wil laat maak.

Se dankie vir wat jy in die lewe het.

Hello Mannie,  I think that your Scout is one of the better designs from that period and should have been developed further,  instead of a complete change. I love it , and if I could fit it through my garage door I would have one right Now. I hope you are successful in having a good tent made and would like to see pics when you are done. A good tent is the key to enjoying a small van.  Good luck.

This is true words Brian.  A good tent is the key to enjoy a small caravan.

Mannie I thought that you had the older model.  The one that opens at the back.  But still due to the size of your van the tent is all most used every time you camp.

I like the kitchen change at the rear of the caravan. Gives more space in the living area.

I also thought that he had the older model. That is the reason why I forwarded him the photos of my tent. He can however still use my tent as basic design as my tent also covered the backdoor when opened.

Hi Leon and Hennie , this model scout was only manufactured in 1997/1998 . Not many were manufactured . They are quite scarce . It has a transverse bed in the front . It came with a 120 litre fridge . It was 220 volt only which I added a step down transformer with a rectifier for the 12volt dc led lighting .I installed hatches on both sides so that I have access to the bunks below the bed .

Hello Mannie,   It looks like we all had the wrong picture in our minds,  yours is a model I have not yet seen, it looks great in fact a lot better than the model that opens up at the back.  Your kitchen looks fabulous, and the tent is a far better arrangement. I hope our paths cross one of the days as I would like to see your van, Close up.

Good luck with the tent

That is a good idea, will see how our schedule looks a little closer to the time, as we intend visiting the Eastern Cape around that time. Thanks.
