Baie nice Chris. Ek like die blokkiesvloer, ek het dieselfde in my flat in Tamboerkloof gehad... Goeie ou dae gewees daai... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Ek sal die naweek aan jou "spesiale versoek" aandag gee. Ek het meeste van die werk klaar gedoen, ons moet net nog 'n klein sakie bespreek... maar ek sal jou email..

Geniet daai kamper, dit lyk baie gerieflik en lekker... :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Niel "setting up" takes about 46 seconds ! (okay a bit longer to open the afdakkies)


putting it down maybe as long as 2 minutes. Walking around the bakkie ensuring the canvas is "in" is really time sapping .... :siffler: :siffler:

COST ??? :siffler: :siffler:


uhm ja, after all said and done it always boils down to cost .... :subscribed:


I find myself in strange position. I know Sarel and Elize. And doing business with friends is often a difficult thing to do .....

For almost a year Sarel and I exchanged emails about options and layouts ..... Bear in mind my layout is totally different to what their other clients requested - we are geared to live inside (knowing the climate in the Cape), while the other rigs work with a multitude of doors and sliders for everything to be used outside.


October last year I sent the "big" email asking Sarel for a quote ..... he came back with a price I STILL do not understand ! I checked with him about four times, as I believe he underquoted ... Once the job was done we had a face to face discussion, he stuck to his quote .... in the end I added a few rands to the payment (wish I could have added more, as I think it is truly worth it)


This said, I think you can appreciate that I cant publish the price he asked me.



So for those wanting to go this route, PLEASE contact Sarel and Elize and FIRST discuss what you want. Then get a quote.


The price IS linked to LABOUR HOURS. The more detail work you want, the longer it takes and THIS costs money !! Two "identical" campers will cost vastly different amounts - all dependant on the finishes you ask for .....


AGAIN I say first SPEAK to Sarel and Elize about what you want. :)

UPDATE -

Batteries do not last forever .... :naah:


DO bear this in mind when you plan the layout of your camper .... :subscribed: :siffler:


And when you add more wiring and goodies ... DO remember that that battery must one day get out off that "hole" .... :surrender: :surrender:

Bliksem Manne, dit was lekker om te lees, te kyk en te kwyl! My mond hang oop vir jou vaardigheid, Chris! Het net een trip met 'n Impi daktent Mabua toe gedoen en hom toe maar verkoop, was te knap vir my en Vroutjie gewees maar hierdie een van Elders lyk wonderlik!! Boet 'n mens baie spasie in onder as dit op 'n DC gedoen word? Wat sal mens moet agterlaat?

Piet gaan drink koffie op die plaas by Sarel en Elize -

http://www.blinkgatproducts.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Glo my, die fotos vertel NIE die storie nie :)

Hulle is tans erens in die Kalahari .... Hulle behoort binne die volgende week of wat weer terug te wees.


Daar is soveel opsies !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Wil julle "binne" leef - soos wat ons met Elders gedoen het.

OF wil julle "buite" leef ? Dan is die kante vol deure wat oopmaak en als "slide" na buite ....


Piet ek kan my vingers nou stomp tik hier ... maklikste is dat jy gaan koffie drink op die plaas, en dan een van hul huur eenhede boek vir n naweek trip.
