Newbie from Windhoek Namibia

Post by Gav_Nam » 29 Oct 2018 16:13

Hi, Gavin here and I live in Windhoek.
I purchased a brand new Patrol LDV in May this year, luckily got it heavily discounted on price as it was an overun from a tender. Sent the vehicle to Infanta 4x4 in Swellendam to get it converted into a camper. Really pleased with the end result and I think the Patrol was the right vehicle to do this. Was the first time they did the conversion on a Patrol, they normally do it on a Toyota Landcruiser. I'll post a photo when I learn how to do this in the forum.
Very happy with the vehicle so far, it has exceeded my expectations.
I love camping and have covered most of Namibia.
Look forward to reading all the posts.
