We’ve earned our Spurs.
The Jetstream Brand has grown from strength to stalwart and is currently the most established and experienced Teardrop Trailer Manufacturer in South Africa by far. Our teardrop trailers have stood the test of time and over the years we’ve combined our expertise with our market’s needs. We’ve built and distributed almost 70 units with many traveling deep into Africa. Our unique design is timeless and our own, and without a doubt the most versatile on the market.
Where do we fit in?
Jetstream Trailers fall into the Lightweight Sports and Adventure Trailer Category. They are extremely robust, feather-light to tow and maneuver with comfort and convenience at your fingertips.
Easy to store and maintain, the Jetstream offers the perfect solution for any outdoor enthusiast with a get-up-and-go approach to life. Go Fishing, cycling, hunting, surfing or just go exploring in absolute comfort.
Jetstream Trailers currrently manufacture two models, the Jetstream Classic and the Jetsream XT. Both models adapt well to any of our additional options.
Beefed-up with upgraded wheels and suspension, the Jetstream XT is highly capable of handling the roughest terrains. The standard Jetstream XT model includes a custom-fitted Roofrack front and back Nudge bars and Stone Chip Guards. The Spare Wheel is mounted on the front of the unit for easy access. The XT is the ideal weatherproof accommodation from which to explore our remote wilderness regions or traditional campsites around the country.
As far as a weekender goes, the Jetstream was an absolute pleasure to tow. The Classic made easy work of the dirt roads and even some cattle tracks we encountered.The van is exceptionally well insulated and sleeping space well thought out. The kitchen is well equipped and we had no trouble cooking and feeding four people on the fly. I was impressed with the fact that even though we literally abused the van in this rough terrain, there were no rattles and nothing parted ways with its original mounting position. A worthy investment for the weekend warrior or sportsman.Schalk Faber / Technical Manager, Penetron SA, Customer
I write regarding the letter about teardrop trailers in the February edition of Caravan & Outdoor Life.I am now 64 years old and have had a Jetstream Teardrop for more than four years. I have traveled extensively in it and never found it wanting. I’ve been to Botswana and Namibia several times, with the longest trip being just over three weeks.I don’t view my “Foxy” (each one gets a nickname of the buyer’s choice) as a weekender at all! I do have a large bow gazebo just like the one you used on your trip, but I have the three sides so I can block off and have privacy if needed. I’ve also added a tow hitch for a small inflatable boat or trailer and inside net doors to both sides. I love it because it’s just like having the tent feel with the luxury of the double bed. I can’t sleep with the doors closed.
I am no muscle man, but I have found Foxy to be very easy to move around and get into position exactly where I want it to be, even when alone. Hooking up to a vehicle is a dream. I normally use my Nissan NP200 bakkie; it tows very easily and my fuel consumption hovers between 12.5 and 13.5l/100km. Cruising at 120km/h is no problem if you’re in a hurry.
The outdoor kitchen is not a problem, if you put the caravan inside the gazebo as opposed to alongside it.I have had bigger caravans, including an Exclusive, but the teardrop is used at least once a month and gives me all the experience I like of being outdoors very comfortably. So my response to the initial question is: Go for it!Stephen Fox, Customer
After seeing this wonderful product at one of the shows, I was very keen to purchace the Jetstream Teardrop Trailer. After experiencing ongoing problems with my existing caravan with the dreaded wood rot, I had just about had enough! I contacted Barry Olivier and informed him that I was very interested in his new range of Jetstream Teardrop Trailers. After meeting with Barry at his factory, he explained the entire concept and even gave me a tour of his manufacturing process at the factory. After our meeting, Barry kindly offered me his loan unit to test out first and offered any extras that I may need with the various options. I could not believe what I was hearing and after spending a weekend in the Berg, my mind was made up and I purchased my new Jetstream Classic and so far we have taken this incredible unit out every month after joining the Midlands Rally Club.Llew van Wyk, Customer

*Persons who passed their Code B light motor vehicle drivers tests after the implementation of the National Road Safety Act of 1996 are prohibited from towing anything weighing more than 750 kg. Drivers who already had the old Code 8 licences before that time automatically received Code EB licences that limit them only to the maximum permissible towing capacity of the tow vehicle. Code B licence holders are obliged to undergo the whole learners’ and drivers’ licence testing procedure with an appropriate trailer attached for a Code EB before being allowed to tow a full-sized caravan. Taking a chance and having an accident without the correct licence could result in all insurances refusing to honour claims.
