Struggling to find a full tent for 1983 Gypsey 5 caravan. Seems that age of caravan is a problem.  It is a double axle caravan. What other make/brand tent will fit? Please advise

Welkom tot die Forum Ria

Glo iemand sal vir jou kan raad gee

Ek sou na 'n plek wat tente maak gaan dat hulle vir my een maak.

bv :

Cristys Tent and Canvas

35 Kendal Rd, Diep River, Cape Town, 7800

En dit gaan jou kos hoor! Jy gaan dalk meer vir die tent betaal as wat die karavaan werd is.

There are basically two tents that should be close to fit the caravan you have.  It is either the Jurgens Exclusive or Jurgens Elegance.  Both of them are conventional profile caravans and close the the length your van is.

You will have to do some measurements to ensure the tent will fit.  The measurements that are important are basically the height of the caravan as the tent sides are only that long and then the actual length from front to back.

It really is a troublesome job to make an existing tent fit a caravan.  So I will advise to have one made from scratch.  This way all will fit correctly in the end.
