Caravanning has a long-standing and fascinating history that dates back to travelling showmen and Romani travelers in Europe in the early 19th century. By the 1920s, caravanning was deemed as a popular recreational activity by many North Americans and soon gained its lasting status as a family friendly holiday across the globe. Why is it so popular you might wonder? Well, off-road caravans and their road-bound counterparts allow holiday goers to explore the open road without breaking the bank.
Since they offer self-catering solutions, they also mean that you can prepare all meals yourself and thus caravans provide a home-away-from-home experience. To this day, caravanning in off-road caravans and motorhomes is a big industry across the world and much enjoyed by many South Africans.
We are truly spoilt when it comes to caravanning destinations in South Africa. Most of us can drive for an hour in any direction and will be met with boundless beauty, open roads, and a number of camping-friendly spots for families and pets alike. Off-road caravans are particularly popular amongst those who enjoy exploring rugged terrains or the road less travelled and offer drivers and passengers more outstanding durability and peace of mind.
Off-road or 4x4 caravans are fantastic for those who like to adventure through harsher conditions or on those bumpy, gravel roads that characterise more remote areas. Thanks to their robust nature, they can weather any environment or landscape. This also includes harsh climatic conditions like rain, storms, hail, and strong winds. Off-road models are ergonomically designed with weight in mind to ensure that vehicles can deftly navigate even the harshest of conditions. Specific tyres and wheels and reinforced axles further ensure that these models get you to your destination safely every single time.
Whether you are looking for a new or second-hand caravan, we have a number of affordable options to suit all budgets and travel needs. Having been in the business for 52 years, we ensure that every vehicle is thoroughly quality checked to ensure that they adhere to all safety regulations and industry standards.
