Hmm, that's useful. I need a new side window, and it's R1800 from CI. Will give these guys a try.

Happy Happy Camper. I also needed one, to be honest the guy in the East Rand was not all that helpful. I landed up buying from Comet Caravans, not cheap. There is a guy in Alberton who said he could get it at a better price, will get his number tonight. He services my van and repaired my top up.

That number I promised. Commercial Caravan Hire and Repairs. Jeremy or Craig 011 900 2033 or 082 344 6273. I paid R2000.00 for my Caravette 6 front window at Comet caravans. Jeremy said when I am ready for the back window he can arrange it at a better price. Worth a shot. By the way, welcome to the forum.

Try Brits Caravans. They are close to the Jurgens CI factory. And usually buy all the old stock from them. Chances are they will have.

Thanks for all the feedback! This is a work in progress! I had the pop top canvas replaced. Are busy renovating all the cupboard doors and replacing curtains. Lots off work to do but very rewarding. Can not wait for the finished job!

Hi Happy camper welcome to the forum. As Leon suggested you can try Brits Caravans they do lots of repairs and rebuilds,speak to Lukas 012 252 5169, or if you are close to Klerksdorp try them they may also be able to help.

Hi there everyone! I need to know more on the chargemaster, as I am new at this caravaning bit! what does it do and how does it work! do I need to buy batteries for the caravan? I bought a secondhand fridge (barlows) for R700! and it fits perfectly! I am in the process of re=doing the curtains. I think that by the next weekend, the canvas, doors and curtains will be up and I will post some new photos as we go along.

Alta, welkom aan julle en voorspoed met julle projek.  Pasop net om nie te veel te spandeer nie en indien eendag wil verkoop nie weer jou geld gaan terug kry nie.

Alta, go to the search facility, and type in: chargemaster, there were a few discussions on the subject, and problems, etc. If you need diagram of chargemaster, please gooi me an e-mail to fppretorius@gmail.com, I will send it to you.

If you can't find the discussions on the chargemaster, I will try to help, but e-mail works better!!!, and remember my Afrikaans is very limited, as for now I have used most of it for tonight!!!!!

Hi Happy Camper.

Welcome to our Forums - Have fun! If these guys here give you any cheek or make any  sarcastic remarks about your van - let me know - I WILL sort them out.

Oh, by the way -  I see you have changed the colour of the pretty blue doors to a drab golden brown! LOL. Cool

Regards.
This is how we spent the last fifteen years - working our buts off!

thanks for all the comments! about the BLUE. I was born in December and my colour is beige/brown! that is why maybe I love the autumn colours so much. We are going to be camping in the bushes so the brown blends in with the surroundings! hahaha. No all jokes aside both my husband and I love the earthly colours. My youngest son came to help us and he enjoyed the "hard work"and this was much appreciated by us. Will post pics when everything is fitted. I also want to mention that all the work is done by ourselves!

Hi Happy Camper, I see you have a after market gas box in your Caravette 6, please can you tell me where you purchased it? Looking for one.
