The Jurgens Penta KC is a result of prime lessons learnt over three decades in the caravan business – South Africans like to live outside their caravan, not inside.
The first design change on the Penta KC was the creating of an outside kitchen.
Making space for the kitchen hatch was relatively easy on the Penta, as there is ample floor space. By moving the fridge forward, a large hatch could be fitted and the kitchen created outside.
The microwave and all the crockery have been moved into the outside hatch.
The entrance door is now hinged on the opposite side to that of the standard model, to ensure that the kitchen hatch doesn’t impede opening the door fully.
The basin (with a tap from the 220V hot-water geyser) is enclosed in a neat, small, fibreglass housing which was already on the outside of the caravan.
