Still standing They say that good news travels fast, but bad news travels faster. Well, this is certainly true of our Facebook page. For more than three years, National Luna has been developing an entirely new range of fridges equipped with superior insulation and an all-new compressor. We named it ‘The Legacy Range’ and it was officially launched into the market, in October last year. But then, in late November, disaster struck… Sometime in the early hours of 22 November, a fi re broke out in our fridge service and pre-assembly unit. The 1 000-sqm building, and all of its

The Gecko Xtrax is the newest model to come from Gecko Offroad. This new 4-berth luxury camper is the little brother to the Gecko Xtreme caravan. Built with quality, luxury, and simplicity in mind it is equipped with a queen-size pull-out bed and two children’s beds.

It is aimed at being the ultimate family trailer and is designed with comfort in mind.  The chassis is a shortened version of the current Gecko Xtreme. This

The show recorded the most models ever launched in 2018, while in 2019 it was the most manufacturers at any show in South Africa. What does the 2020 show promise to reveal?

Jurgens Campworld’s new Penta is going to turn heads, and particularly the heads of current Penta owners who are going to sit upright in their camping chairs before rushing off to their nearest dealer to talk upgrade! The new Penta has been a long time in the making, so much so that one could not really tell the difference between a recent model and one that is decades old. For those dyed in the wool Jurgens owners – excitement. Speaking to Jurgen Adler, the team leader at Jurgens, he says everything on the new Penta is totally new, nothing has

LeisureWorld is a premium outdoor, caravan, camping accessory, and caravan parts supplier with outlets throughout South Africa and Namibia. The group was formed out of a necessity to look after the needs of their customer base when parts supply from their main supplier, Jurgens-Ci, was not forthcoming. “In addition, dealer viability was also at stake,” said founding member Alize de Goede, who had almost 20 years experience with the Jurgens group as Senior Purchasing Manager.

The only difference being, it has been given a dose of steroids, beefed up for trundling down dusty, potholed country roads for camping in exotic and exciting places. Mind you, it would be equally at home gracing the lush, green grass lawns of an upmarket caravan resort as it would looking out from the

Our journey with the Gecko started as just a dream. After years and years of camping with different caravans, we just couldn’t seem to find one that fitted into what we needed. This is how the idea of building the first-ever Gecko Caravan came to be, and it still is the best decision we have ever made. After three years of development and building, we had created our perfect caravan. Something robust, strong and durable. A caravan that was manufactured using quality products, was dust-proof, simple to use, and that still had elements of luxury – like the king-size bed
