Took delivery of a "Glorified Tent" this weekend.

Towed from Rustenburg to Nylstroom and then to Carletonville although slowly, avoided the toll roads and car gave consumption towing a lot of others could wish for alone..

Well done Dave…

Finally got your TARRE to GVW so that there is a good safety factor built into the equation…..

Now you can smile at the weigh bridge..

Slightly quicker downhill....
These days a teeny-tiny bit more slightly quicker....

Not yet - Slipstream GVM 750kg not braked - Sonic Tare 1 215kg (maksimum towable  GVM 607kg - therefor over by 143kg). I have plans to build a moveable kitchen in front, in stead of the hang mat (with option to convert to a bunk in need  - there is place for another bunk in  the back and should sleep 4 with option of 5 which we should generally not need)

We are keeping the Caravette braked GVM 971 - still the better option for more than a night.

Yes, if you compare GVM of the caravette to the GVM of the slipstream there is a difference in favor of the slipstream.

But be careful to not load over the GVM of 750 for the slipstream. I think there is something like 150? kg load weight before you exceed the GVM of 750

Wat van 'n paar fotos asseblief Johan?

Die een kort hier en daar pop-rivets en skroewe (nie te ernstig nie) - al stukkend plek binne is die een houtjie (ook maklik om te vervang. Sal ook wil verf (die gry is afskuwelik en bo oor etikette en goed gespuit). Die venster seile is ook maar lelik gedoen, maar voldoen seker aan die belangrikes.

220v is aangelê met verskeie ligte en proppe. Het ook gekry met  2 plaat gas en 2 plaat elektriese stoof - ook rally i.pv. tent by.

Ons wil eintlik net on klein vrieskas, Portapotti (in foto) en mikrogolf oond in sit. Idee is klein kombuis op raak te bou in plaas van hang mat voor waarop ons matras kan sit indien ekstra slaapplek nodig is - daar is ook agter plek ir hangmat. Dab is dit geskik vir 'n vinnige rit vir 'n aand.

Dankie - netjies - ek dink daardie hout vleor is beter en skoner as die mat.

Please correct me if I'm wrong...

I understand that the generic description for both of these (and mine by the way) is trailer tents.

The generic description of a "fold-up / folding caravan" is like the old solid-side campride that all the walls are of a solid material and fold down either half or just about flat...

Johan prys?....
