Buy camping experience

Jurgens, South Africa's best known caravan-maker, have long since broadened their scope and now make everything from relatively simple road-use luggage trailers to luxury caravans.

One of the most popular segments of the South African leisure camping market is the off-road trailer. These rugged wagons offer several advantages over off-road caravans. They are generally a little lighter, less expensive and even tougher. Generally they are easier to tow.

Jurgens Safari Trailers has designed the XT160 to be a complete package, ready to roll. It comes standard with all the practical features off-road enthusiasts look for in a trailer. Although it is possible to buy an off-road trailer and equip it yourself, an advantage of having it done for you is that you benefit from the experience accumulated by Jurgens over years. Experience when camping is invalauble and so, particulalrly if you are new to camping out of trailers, buying some can save a lot of headaches later.

There is also a 90-litre dual fridge/freezer, two 4kg gas bottles, a spare wheel, removable jockey wheel and a Howling Moon trailer tent which sleeps four. The 100 litre water tank feeds a Hansen geyser so there is plenty of hot water. There are also three LED battery-operated lights and crockery for six.
