    Thoughts on Darche swags

    Been thinking about getting this swag:


    http://www.4wdsupacentre.com.au/prod...ag-double.html

    I like the look it and the price isn't too bad, anyone had experience with either this particular swag or similar? I'll be chucking an awning on the side of the truck once I get a roofcage so this should help protect it from the elements too.

    Thanks!

    Hi Jimmy . I have owned a single darche swag near on 22 years . One of the best investments I have made . All I have done is increase the padding of the mattress with some carpet underlay . Besides this it has been great . That one your looking at is very flash indeed , one thing to consider is once you put your bedding in it and roll it up , how much room it will take up , it could be bulky and it states the dry / empty weight is 14 kg , so bedding etc 17 kg ? Things to consider before you fork out your hard earned $ . Good luck .
    The price of excellence is dicipline , the cost of mediocrity is dissapointment .

    Shouldnt have any issues with Darche at all, I would be more worried about lack of customer service from the seller. Nice looking swag though


    Never underestimate the power of the darkside, let the tap flow through you.

    The size I'm not to concerned about I mean I do drive shorty but I'm single so lots of room, also heading to Lorne in Vic for a music festival over New Years which I do a bit so would like to have the room in the swag and not be constricted.

    Customer service shouldn't be too bad, their main showroom is just near work. Pretty sure they advertise in a mates magazine as well.

    Thought I'd go well with Darche, I've only read positive things there isn't much out there though.

    Thanks!

    I brought my Darche from their factory over 15 years ago. Comparing it to the other cheap swags I have looked at lately, mine still is better made and with better canvas than all the others. Just had to put a new matress in it thats all. I haven't actually seen a current Darche in the flesh yet so hopefully they are still just as good as the oldies. I couldn't see on their website it they are still made in OZ or not...

    Thumbs up

    My Darche swag never failed me. Don't know how old or what model, but it's about 10 years old. Considering how many times it's been used and what it went through it should be in shreds by now, but it's still in one piece and as good as ever. It even survived tumbling along calder highway at 100km/h.

    Like I have always said, the trick with swags is to go 1 wide, 2 high
