Letter from a Happy Customer
My experience with the Conqueror Commander purchased in Des 2014
I broke my back in a car accident in May 2014. As a result much of what is required to pitch a tent and set up camp has become impossible. I had to decide to either give up camping or find a solution that would allow me to go camping without hurting or damaging my back.
After 4 months' research and visiting some factories and most show rooms of the major off-road trailer and caravan suppliers I realised that pitching a rooftop or trailer-top tent - especially at the end of a tiring day behind the wheel - would be a risk for a guy who 2 months ago could not put on his socks without considerable pain. Much to my surprise I saw that some of the off-road caravans with the fold out beds were really easy to pitch and in testing a couple of models I realised I could set up the caravans with almost no strain on my back - in the show room!
After seeing how well top brand off-road caravans held their value I decided to buy a new Commander from Conqueror.
Here is what I found as somebody recovering from a broken back over the course of a 3 week 4000 km holiday:
I was really pleasantly surprised how easy and quick it was for me to set up the caravan and the kitchen area with almost no strain on my back.
An added bonus was the practical layout and design of the caravan. As a result of the ample and practical storage space in the caravan we did not have to unpack heavy bags or ammo boxes at every campsite. Almost everything could be neatly packed away in the caravan - quite an achievement if you take into account we are a family of 6 (one a year old baby) and had to pack for a 3 week camping and sea holiday.
My last concern camping with a bad back was how well I would be able to sleep. I am 1.9m tall and in spite of the fact that my wife and I shared the main bed with a 13 month old baby I found the bed fantastic.
Overall, the Commander exceeded our wildest expectations.

Article taken from the "Wegsleep" Augustus 2013
Die Dinokeng-wildreservaat het 'n stewige dosis voorkomende maatreŰls in plek gestel nog voor enige stropers van die reservaat se renosters in hulle visier kon kry.
Een van die grondeienaars in die reservaat, dr. Charles van Niekerk, 'n dierearts, het 'n tegniek ontwikkel om stropers te pootjie. Die tegniek behels 'n behandeling waartydens 'n soort kleursel - dieselfde wat gebruik word vir banknote in transito - tesame met 'n parasiet in albei horings van die renoster ingespuit word. Die parasiet is skadelik vir die mens, maar pla die renoster glad nie.
Van Niekerk plant dan terselfde tyd 'n mikroskyfie op die dier en neem DNS-monster. Een so behandeling kos sowat R10 000 en dit moet na vyf jaar herhaal word.
Die renoster is egter skaars 'n halfuur buite aksie, en as hy daar wakker word, moet die stropers ligloop.
In Heidelberg, Gauteng het ook die manne van Conqueror besluit om betrokke te raak in die stryd teen renosterstropers. Volgens Philip de Vries, een van die maatskappy se mede-eienaars, het hulle 'n ooreenkoms gesluit met 'n konsultant wat renostersindikate oopvlek. Conqueror het die gebruik van sy waens oor 'n tydperk van vyf jaar gratis aan die maaskappy beskikbaar gestel.
Die totale waarde van die "huurooreenkoms" is sowat R1,64 miljoen, en Philip sê dit is hoe hulle van hulle kant af 'n verskil kan maak.
Die Conquest was die eerste wa wat gebruik is in 'n oorgrens-operasie, en 300 km is daarmee afgelê. Tot op hede was Conqueror se geborgde waens betrokke by nog tien operasies. Die wa word gebruik om in te slaap sowel as as 'n "operasie sentrum" waarin die teenstroopeenhede hulle daaglikse bedrywighede kan koordineer.
