Tygerberg Caravans & Campworld

R500: If you could scratch together another R50, we’d suggest that you buy a lapa. You could also get a rear extrusion washing line (R200), a storm strap (R230) and a cover for the plug joint on the caravan lead − very handy in wet weather (R80).
R5000: We’d suggest a combination of a towing stabiliser (R1 500 – R3 000), a nose travel blanket which is handy for keeping the fibreglass chip-free (R800 – R2 000), a silver reflective flysheet (R1 500 – R2 000) and a storm net (R300 – R1 000).
R15 000: All the items listed for the R5 000 budget, plus a service for your caravan − and possibly new tyres, as well. In addition, a tyre pressure monitor (R3 500), a leisure awning (R2 700), a non-slip PVC groundsheet (R800), and a jaffle pan (R200)… because who doesn’t like a good jaffle when camping?
