Names: Gavin Rich
Vote: Discoverer xtreme by motor home world

I recently fulfilled a long time dream of mine to drive in a 4X4 motorhome which was built at the Motorhome-World factory in Cape Town. What an absolute pleasure it was to take this great vehicle out on tar and off-road to get a good feel of how well it performs. And, let me tell you, it certainly does the job it’s required to do, easily negotiating tough terrain. The interior has everything any adventuring family could need with loads of space and most importantly premium comfort. The motorhome is built on an Iveco chassis and there is enough grunt under the hood to get you to the remotest destinations with ease. My next adventure will be to drive a non 4×4 motorhome that Motorhome-World produces to really gauge which is most suited to my outdoor lifestyle. All I know is that after driving the motorhome, we as a family are going to make our dreams of owning a motorhome come true within a year or two. From the responses I got at Motorhome-World, it is clear that will certainly bend over backwards to build your dream motorhome and accommodate your design ideas.

Entry 2

Vote: Vista 4×4 Camper

We recently undertook our first real 4×4 trip with our new Vista Motorhome, travelling to Zambia with Trans Africa Tours. It is a Toyota Hilux 3 litre diesel which Vista Motorhomes converted into a motorhome with direct access from the cabin to the motorhome part at the back. Our “motorhome” comprises a kitchen, toilet & shower, double bed, dining table, comfortable seating, hot and cold water (if connected to a 240volt mains electricity supply) in the space where the original load bin was. Indeed a most comfortable vehicle/motorhome. Vista Motorhomes was very helpful in adapting/changing some items in our motorhome to suit our particular requirements.

One item requested at the planning and build stage was that I would like to be able to stand upright in the motorhome (being 1.86 meters tall). This was achieved! The build quality of the overall frame for the “home” was manufactured of square section aluminium tube. Insulation between the outer and inner panels are filled with insulation material ensuring excellent heat and noise insulation. Our motorhome was subjected to very bad “roads” during our trip to southern Zambia and the Zambezi river area. The “ROADS”, especially the N10 between Kazugula, Mwandi and Seseke were extremely bad. Someone called it the benchmark of all bad roads in Africa! There are more holes (and big ones) in the road than “road” itself.

For large distances the area next to the road was better or the only alternative to drive on. Our motorhome is a tall vehicle and it gave a number of our co-travellers nervous moments anticipating for it to fall over when negotiating certain parts on and off the “main” road. Our main objective while negotiating this was to keep up with the others, not to fall over and to reach the next camp intact. The motorhome did not exhibit any creaks or strange noises. We must credit Vista Motorhomes with the design and robust construction of the “home”. Back home in Somerset West we thoroughly checked every drawer and door, water and geyser system, toilet, etc, and could not find anything not working in perfect order. A major compliment to Vista’s build quality and design..
