One of the key benefits of buying a Sherpa is the fact that owners have the option to design the interior to their own liking.  Some owners have been asking to meet other co-owners for some time so that they can exchange ideas.  It was therefore decided to arrange a Gauteng Sherpa Rally.

The first Sherpa Rally took place at “Klipdraai Karavaan Park” on the last weekend of February 2020. 24 Sherpa Caravans attended the rally braving cool and very wet conditions.  The complete Sherpa range was represented, from the Sherpa Tiny, Rough Roader to the Rambler A and B as well as the latest Sherpa Wanderer. Owners came from far and wide including Thabazimbi, Richards Bay, Bloemfontein and Potchefstroom.

It was interesting to note that a great portion of the owners were retired or very close to retirement so one of the topics that were greatly discussed was how to camp without breaking the back and the bank!

One Rambler owner (Gawie) changed his unit to include a bath with hot and cold water whilst Willie from Richard Bay bragged that his Sherpa Tiny is now on its 3rd set of brand-new tires. He has apparently done more than 200,000 Km’s during the past few years. Fred, however, was the main attraction as he arrived in heavy rain with a self-build Viper Trike (V8) with his Rambler B on tow. Neville De Meillon (Sherpa Leisure owner) had the opportunity to communicate with the owners and listen to new design suggestions and camping tips.

By the end of the weekend friendships were formed with plans made for more camping trips together.  The Sherpa Owners based in the Eastern Cape will have a rally during May 2020 (at Yellow Sands), whilst the Western Cape and KZN rally is in the planning phase.

Sherpa Owners Rally at De Rust Caravan Park

Business | News
Sherpa owners got together for a winter rally at De Rust Caravan Park in the Dinokeng Reserve in June.  A lovely restful time was had by all with all the Sherpa models on show from the Sherpa Tiny to the Sherpa Tiny Rough Roader, the Rambler as well as a Wanderer.  The De Rust Caravan Park was ideal for the rally with its large open spaces and choice of shaded or sunny spots.  These Sherpa owners rallies are becoming very popular with owners meeting fellow campers, swapping ideas and getting advice.  They are happening around the country and another one will be organised once this third wave of the pandemic is over.

L8 - DIE WATERGAT 25 - 29 April 2022

Club | News
Everyone arrived on Monday the 25 April. First the Lawrences and Bond-Smiths and then the Browns and Conradies in the morning and later in the day the Pieters arrived. We were fortunate to have the whole camp to ourselves the whole time we were there and had perimeter security beams that we could activate via remote at night with Vetus Scola on standby, should the alarm be triggered. The campsites have lovely green lawn, a boma with 2 fridges, work surfaces, 2 big benches and a huge firepit. The ablutions were 3 combined toilet and shower rooms, 1 shower room and 1 toilet all with individual doors. The weather was good and we had very little wind and every evening was spent round the fire and sitting eating our meal under the boma.
