Off-Road Caravans for Sale for the South African Market
Caravanning is a great way to bring some basic creature comforts to the great outdoors. In more rudimentary cases, camping consists of erecting a tent, inflating a mattress, and laying out a sleeping bag. Fire is your friend in the wilderness, so most camps also have dedicated fireplaces for food preparation and to provide warmth and light at night. Hooking a caravan to your vehicle means you don’t have to bother will all the extra camping gear when hitting the road for a holiday in the great outdoors. Echo 4×4 Centre offers a variety of off-road caravans for sale for that purpose in South Africa.
The design of a caravan must make the most of the space inside for the benefit of the occupants. Therefore, the chassis is low, the roof is high, and the wheels are small. Although this design works perfectly well for travelling on smooth tarmac roads, it becomes a problem when facing rough and uneven terrain. This is where our selection of off-road caravans offers a solution. We focus on the world of off-roading and our caravans attest to this through quality design, functionality, and stability. Today, we will focus on an ideal solution for someone who is considering one of the many types of off-road caravans for sale in South Africa.
The Luxurious Kavango
For a caravan to handle off-road terrain, changes must be made to the design. First, the body must be durable enough to withstand knocks, bumps, and flying stones. Our Kavango model features a tough, colour-impregnated monocoque fibreglass body. Fibreglass is a very strong material but also very light and impervious to rust. Therefore, it is the ideal material from which to manufacture a caravan shell.
The body is assembled with stainless-steel bolts, nuts, and hinges to deliver a fully corrosion-resistant shell. The Kavango is designed to resist rain, mud, and dirt and keep its structural integrity without ever succumbing to rust. It also features rain gutters to ensure that rainwater can be funnelled away from the roof. Mud flaps are optionally available for sale to ensure that the caravan is better protected against dirt and damage. Industrial interior carpeting adds to its ruggedness and resistance to wear. The Kavango can withstand the harsh weather of South Africa for years on end.
Another vital point to address is the chassis of a caravan. The regular, low-riding, on-road caravans typically for sale at most dealerships in South Africa have small wheels and low suspension systems and they are meant to travel on good roads only. The Kavango features a raised suspension, off-road wheels, and a reinforced chassis to deal with rough and uneven terrain. The A-frame chassis design optimises strength and rigidity and it even has a skid plate to prevent damage from underneath.
