Hey Angie. I had never even heard of the Roamer Rand Vagabond until you became a member and posted. Doubtful it's a brand that's made its way to this continent. We have members in England, the Netherlands and Italy, etc. Perhaps one of them will post some helpful info. Good luck on the hunt!

Hi Angie;

I just googled "Bakkie" . I found this:

bakkie [ˈbʌkiː]
n (Engineering / Automotive Engineering) South African a small truck with an open body and low sides [from Afrikaans bak container]
bakkies - definition of bakkies by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

I think you have one of the most unique and greatest looking campers that I have come across. In the same league as the Willerby, the early small Biod's, etc.

I would love to see some more photo's of your rig, and camping shots in the English countryside, etc. if you ever feel like it.

But I think you may just have to conclude that you have a very rare and unique camper there, just like the Willerby.

I did see an ad for one today online when I searched. It was in South Africa, dated last year, so there are others out there unless that one was yours.
