We will also be there. Not sure what time.. Mrs has a charity event in the morning.

Looking forward to it.. Last year there were some Tunas reversing UP the 5m high hill track they built.

We got there at about 9:30. Drove in to the parking area in a line, but moving steadily.

We left at about 12:00 .... man what a line of cars waiting to get !!!!

We got there at about 1430 and just drove in parked bought a ticket and enjoyed it.

Only que was for a flip in thr new Hilux. So we skipped that after our long que at Home Affairs.

Was great to be able to sit in Ford Wiltrack then go back to Hilux and back and forward to compare stuff.

Also got to meat up with a very old friend of mine from our ODW days (back in Varsity), John. He runs Explore4Knowledge awesome guy. Visit his stand when you there and hear what he does.

Glad to hear the line eased up after 12:00.

We were lucky - longest time was filling in the forms. Straight into the Lux. :)

There was a line at LR for the Evogue, but no line for the Sport. So we took a drive in it. WOW !! "Slight" upgrade from the old Defender ....



Some seriously impressive trailers and camper units at the show ... all too heavy for the RAV though ....

But man the prices !!!!!!!!!!! Paying more than R215k for a TRAILER !!!


Bantam does have a nice option with a LOW level trailer, with a TTT that opens to provide a nice room. Still have the side by side bed ... Good start, but they messed it up with no side entry into the low line trailer .... Concept has as a lot of potential.
