Man­u­fac­tur­ers are in­creas­ingly adding smaller car­a­vans to their ranges, and In­fanta re­cently launched theirs: The Enkulu 1 – a car­a­van with space for two peo­ple who de­sire a lighter tow load. Af­ter In­fanta launched its of­froad car­a­van – the Enkulu 2 – the owner, J.W. Swart, took the lead and built one of the swanki­est dou­ble-axle off-road car­a­vans in the coun­try. The Enkulu 4 is like a ho­tel on wheels, and now J.W. has set his sights on the op­po­site end of the mar­ket. If you look at the Enkulu 1’s struc­ture, it seems very sim­i­lar to its two pre­de­ces­sors, and you can seen J.W. still ap­plies his three pil­lar phi­los­o­phy: You need to be able to cook, shower and sleep com­fort­ably. The in­side is taken up by one large dou­ble bed, the shower is out­side at the back and is fed by a high-pres­sure geyser, and the kitchen is on the left-hand side. Just like with the new­est Enkulu 2 mod­els, the pop-up roof also only lifts up at the back – this is done sim­ply by push­ing a but­ton, thanks to elec­tric mo­tors. But you won’t be left home­less if the mo­tors should break down, be­cause you can also lift the roof man­u­ally. The door is on the left-hand side at the back, and the bed is

to the left of the door, to­wards the nose. In front of you, if you’re stand­ing at the door, is a cas­sette toi­let against the op­po­site panel, and the black wa­ter tank can be reached from the out­side. Above the kitchen, against the body of the car­a­van, you can at­tach a loose shelf for small house­hold items – it’s out of the way but still within reach. There’s space for any­thing from spices to a but­ter dish, and it’s ideal to keep the work sur­face clean. The fig­ures Tare 610 kg (fully equipped); GVM 1 600 kg. Price R250 000 (fully equipped).
