Sourced this from Mike Bands after he advertised it on the Overland Forum
Much better than version 1 , as it is from a 79 Series and needed no mods
View from the back . You gotta love the 70’s kitsch upholstery . The 2 single beds can be made into one big bed
Fold out stove
Pop up roof seen from the front
Cupboards on both sides of the door
Pull out draw under the beds and more packing space in the beds
Packing space at the front over the cab
Rear packing space on both sides
Camper on it’s “stilts”. Although it is very quick to take on and off , my plan is to leave it on permanently
Car reversed under camper. All that’s necessary now is to lower jacks and bolt on
Back view with roof open (I will be changing the tyre as soon as I can find another BFG)
It’s not really necessary to open the roof , as there is plenty of headroom , but it does help with cooling
Two solar panels on the roof

Those round tubes, does Jagermeister bottles fit in there? Could be the ideal liquir magazine 🙂

BTW, can you see past the camper with the standard mirrors?

We’re going to Hennops next Saturday and then a braai afterwards. All welcome

@Mike – hardly at all , will have to buy some caravan mirrors
January 28, 2012 at 08:26
Some pics from the inside?
Also, regarding mirrors – you are going to struggle to find ones that do not bounce so bad they give you a headache. Better to look for truck mirrors that you can mount to the metal of the doors with a neat bracket so should you wish to remove you can.
I’ve got the best caravan mirrors I could get, but still had to add a stabilizer bar back to the door. The standard mirror on the cruiser is not designed, nor strong enough to support an outrigger.

Thanks for the info Eric . The truck mirror idea had already crossed my mind , so I guess I’ll persevere. I will be posting some inside pics soon

What tyre size do you need for the camper spare? Rather space up the rear view mirror with alu spacers , a caravan mirror will drive you crazy, cheers ,B

BFG MT 265x65x75 – None in the country or the world it seems . The only reason I managed to get 4 for the car was because of a cancelled order

Fit one of those video camera/screen combos that fit to the rear view mirror, helps when you reverse.
That fridge is a 60l Minus 40

Yup my head unit does take a camera input, I just needed to fit the camper first. Will post pics of camera when done

1)What does it weigh?
2) Does the vehicle sway a lot more with the camper on? If it does airbags will help. If you do fit airbags please let us know how much articulation chages.
3)Those side tubes are for water, are they? How many litres?
February 14, 2012 at 14:46
1) It weighs about 550 kg AFAIk
2) Not really , in fact its a better ride with the extra weight
3) Yup for water – approx 60 l each
