Roll-over explanation
a Roll-over is defined as a vehicle sustaining all types of damage due to not being in its normal position on all 4 wheels. Just by lying on its side a vehicle is seen as a having rolled-over. Roll-overs that were not caused by a collision (with another vehicle for example) are not covered by any CDW insurance. These incident occur very rarely and should not happen if the driver sticks to the speed limit, scans the road and is awake.

Towing cost
In case of damage to any part of a motorhome it must be assessed if the unit is drivable. If not, the vehicle must be towed to the nearest depot by a reputable towing company authorized by Bobo Campers. Towing & recovery costs arising due to any type of accident to be paid by the customer irrespective of CDW option.

Gauteng Road Taxes
From December 2013 the main Gauteng roads are subjected to E-Tolling. Large gantries have been erected where all vehicles that drive underneath them are charged according to their classification.
Many fixed toll booths throughout South Africa also records toll cost automatically when a camper approaches. This system means that there is an additional levy of R800 is raised on all rentals departing and/or returning at our Johannesburg depot. When the E-toll statement arrive at our offices we will charge for the incurred fees and add an admin fee. The remaining amount will be refunded to the customer.

Tyre replacement
If a tyre needs to be replaced it is important to ensure that both the ply rating (8ply Commercial) and size are corresponding to the tyre it replaced on the vehicle. This to ensure maximum safety and function. Replacement tyres of the wrong size or ply rating will not be refunded.

Dust ingress
Southern Africa is predominantly an arid desert region and the majority of secondary routes travelled, are on unsealed dust or gravel roads. It is not possible to make vehicles dust-proof and therefore refunds or claims for any dust ingress of any nature, will not be considered.

This taxation is applicable when starting or ending at our Windhoek depot. Currently it is charged at R450 per contract irrespective if some rental days are spent outside the borders of Namibia. Applicable on all our Discoverer FunX and DC models.

Roll-overs
Both the Discoverer FunX and DC range are higher than a conventional vehicle. This means that the centre of gravity is also at a higher point. This increases the risk of a roll over occurring. a Roll-over is defined as a vehicle sustaining all types of damage due to not being in its normal position on all 4 wheels. Just by lying on its side a vehicle is seen as having rolled-over. Roll-overs that were not caused by a collision eg. another vehicle are not covered by any CDW insurance waiver options. The vehicles' final resting position is irrelevant. These incidents occur very rarely and should never happen if the driver sticks to the speed limit, scans the road ahead and is fully awake.

- Drive slowly, especially on gravel and dirt roads. Keep to a maximum 60km/h on gravel and 30km/h on soft sand. Try to stay in the existing road tyre tracks.
- Keep large following distances on sand/dirt roads to avoid excessive dust which hampers visibility.
- Ensure you brake for drifts in the road. These drifts can appear suddenly and are not always clearly visible. Driving through them at too high speeds can damage your suspension and more.
- Make sure the transfer lever is not in N otherwise gearbox is not connected to the wheels.
