Please see our frequently asked questions below. If you have any additional enquiries please contact us here.

Trailer

The Gidget cannot be towed extended.  The Gidget has to be extended to power the solar panels.  You can unhitch the Gidget and move it around easily by 1 person.

The tv can be watched anywhere, inside or out.

The bed is a full size queen bed that converts into a lounge area.

The Gidget is not designed for offroad, but can go on dirt tracks and sand roads with caution and sensibility.

Towing

The Gidget can be towed by any car that has a tow bar.  The Gidget TARE weight is 590kg and ATM rate is 750kg.   So if your car has the braking capacity to handle this, then you are ready to go.  Check your manual as most cars have this capacity.

Power

This is supplied through the solar panels, which requires the sun to charge them.  There is also a power point that can be plugged in at the campsite to charge the battery and supply power.  The Gidget can run for days with just the solar panel charging the battery.  If you have an Anderson plug fitted to your vehicle, and whilst driving, this charges the Gidget battery for endless supply of power.

For example:

8 hours of sunlight on solar panel = 52 amps per day.

Fridge: 0.77 amps x 24 hours = 18.5 amps

Lights: All on for 4 hours = 3.2 amps

TV/stereo: For 3 hours = 7.2 amps

Total used 28.9 amps per day

Solar supply = 52 amps per day

Used as per example = 28.9 amps per day, so you still have 23.1 amp left in reserve

Gas & Water

The Gidget comes with a 80 litre water tank and a 40 litre waste tank.  We supply a 4 kg gas bottle for the cooking stove only.  A safety switch is fitted to the stove to avoid being slid back in when lit.  It is also fitted with a flame failure device.
