If you have a large family, or if the kids want to bring along a couple of friends, then Dethleff’s new C’Go Up will be right up your alley. This ultra-modern caravan can sleep up to SEVEN people.

The C’Go Up offers space that is brilliantly managed with a series of bunk beds, lift-up beds and convertible dinettes to allow for seven sleeping spots.

This new model from the German manufacturer has an understated exterior which is perfectly counterbalanced by a colourful, airy and bright interior that offer oodles of space.

The front of the C’Go Up is the space allotted to kids, with two bunk beds and a dining area. A cabinet-and-shelf configuration connects the bunk beds to the dining nook, creating the perfect space where the young ones can play and enjoy their holiday. This smaller dinette can also convert to a single bed.

The rear of the trailer is intended to be more of an “adult” space, and is made up of a full-sized dinette with wrap-around seats. The dinette converts to a double bed at night.

A second double bed lowers down from the ceiling, creating a sort of double bunk bed.

The front and rear areas are cleverly separated by the central kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen has a triple-burner stove, a sink and a 142 L fridge. The bathroom has a sink, a shower and a toilet.

Australians, like many South Africans, love off-road camping. And wouldn’t you love to see something like Patriot Campers’ new model, the X1-H?

The newest model in their line-up features a remote-controlled solar-powered “Hexocore” lid that is opened at the push of a button. And it takes less than 60 seconds to open.

The Hexocore hard top lid on the X1-H is moulded from composite materials, and features a built-in 130W solar panel that is constantly charging your trailer.

Setting up is equally easy, thanks to electronic actuators that lift the tent from the inside. The new X1 hard-top camper has a pocket-sprung mattress for complete comfort, and the hexagonal patterned roof-lining is great for sound insulation. The unit is shod with 16-inch alloy wheels − and with 2 000 litres of storage, there is ample space to store everything you need for those longer adventures. The X1 also has many other outstanding features, such as a twin-burner stove, a hot-water system, a 155L water tank, and a changing room.

Why tow your boat along behind your motorhome when you can have it all in one?

The new Terra Wind Amphibious RV is a motorhome that is as completely at home on the highways as it is on the water. The manufacturer, CAMI (Cool Amphibious Manufacturers International) claims that it can achieve speeds in excess of 120km/h on the road, and up to 7 knots on the water.

The driver- and passenger cabin is decked out with a padded leather dashboard which has a variety of gauges and system controls. The Terra Wind is fitted with an onboard computer docking system which has internet access, moving maps, GPS and navigational charts, which are standard equipment on the model.

The Terra Wind can be fully customised to suit the client’s needs:  there is a variety of floor plans, cabinetry options, furniture and graphics on offer.

Interested? We hope you have a fat wallet, because the Terra Wind Amphibious RV will set you back at least R11 670 000… and that’s just the entry-level model!
