i finally found a 1985 Wilk Emerald for R 13000. Needs a bit of work but for that price is worth it. Used my cheap moisture meter as on my previous post. Worked like a dream, indicated all the damp areas and was able to give me a good idea as to where the hidden problems were. Only problem it came with rally tent and nothing else. I would greatly appreciate if any of the members know of or come across some one selling a tent for this caravan to please let me know. Any model wilk emerald tent would do.
Hey John congrats on the purchase.
Are still intent on just parking it somewhere or will you tow it around?
Hi Brian, comes with papers so will definatly bee towing it around. Nice caravan for its age.
All the best with the Van, John. Hope you have endless camping pleasures with her. And another hope is that the dampness is not too much of a problem in future.
I had one for 5 jears very nice van, i sold mine it had woodrot ,back window colaped ,had n tent made in Potgietersrus for R6000.00
Thanks Willem, they quoted me R 19 000 at Gans. Cant bring myself to spend money like that. Have a rally tent enclosed, a bit small for my family. I am going to to experiment with a campmaster family lodge tent which is about 6m x 3m. Going to try and have a zip exstention fitted from end of rally tent door to side of campmaster tent. This model tent is complete ripstop canvas and bigger than a normal caravan tent. Can pick it up second hand for R 1500 in good condition. Who knows might work out fine. Will be interesting to see if any of the members have done anything like this. Will open a new post and see what info i can obtain.
