Where in the world …Wild Coast Tents!

Fantastic isn’t it..?!

We shipped our first roof top tent to South Africa and wouldn’t you know it, it ended up on the wild coast of South Africa this weekend!

Coming from South Africa myself this just thrills me beyond words 🙂 especially since there are so many roof top tent manufacturing companies in SA.

We are so proud of our roof top tents, which we have improved by leaps and bounds since 2012. Our product is simply great and although they are made with the Canadian market in mind, they are now tried and tested in South Africa too.

We stand behind our products 100%, our roof top tent customers we are proud to call our friends

Beautiful rig below now loaded up with the best roof top tent in Canada!

Stunning scenery from the Wild Coast of South Africa, a perfect place for

Scout Overland Trailer

Now that we have put these together and have them ready for the road, we stand back and are pretty darn thrilled with the quality of these trailers.

The quality is great, they are solid and well made for off road. We added the 35 tires, which make more sense to us than smaller stock tires which make the trailer look even cooler if that’s even possible.

We have also added a beaver step on the trailer as well as two D link shackles. they have the road safety done so all you need to do is pick up and go. No one else offers this with these scout trailers. We do offer pricing without the tires and wheels if that is something you would like to do, just call for pricing on that.

We can add any RTT you like as well as a 270 Awning or a straight awning.

Fridges we offer snomaster and we have a couple models that will work well with the trailer

. bdc42s

Solar panels from snomaster we also stock which is another option to use with the trailer. or we sell a generator if you are so inclined to go that route.

The RTT can be raised to accommodate the annex room, or if you do not use the Annex you can lower the tent to whatever height is suitable for you.

There is a slide out for the generator or small fridge on one side, at the back there is one large door with two slides which can accommodate a larger fridge and or other gear you are taking. There are numerous tie down points inside of the slides. On the other side is another door with a slide out to accommodate a stove as well as a little shelf. It also comes with a little basin that pops onto the slide when the stove is out. The Frame is hot dipped galvanised steel. These trailers track incredibly well!

The tongue box is a good size for a battery or other gear.

Full size spare tire included.  electric brakes and handbrake.

Honestly a great rock solid trailer for all your off road needs.

Nor’easter Expedition 2018

… on our list to do this year, a trip from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland across to Labrador down to Quebec, new Brunswick and back to NS.

Our prelim plans are coming along well, we had a meeting of minds, great minds that is haha to start planning our Nor’Easter expedition. This is just a very basic idea of our expedition right now, we will post a more in depth update as our plans progress. received_2076931312582168

Dates to leave Sept 8th – we will all meet up in Halifax, check all our gear and drive up to Sydney to take the ferry to Port Aux Basques Newfoundland. The ferry leaves at about 11.30 pm or so I believe so we have decided not to get a berth and just crash on the chairs in hopes of grabbing a few winks before we arrive in Newfoundland. received_404104610015053

From there it will be a trip up to marble mountain area to checkout the zipline, we hope to then travel up to Gros Morne area for our two nights to do some hikes and sight seeing. Then onward to the arches and  L’Anse aux Meadows to the Viking village and any other stops that catch our eye along the way. we will probably spend a night near L’Anse Aux Meadows or somewhere closer to the ferry at St Barb in order to make it onto the ferry in time the next day!

The next stage is the ferry crossing from St Barb NFL to Blanc Sablon Quebec which leaves at 10.30.

received_404104646681716

Once in Blanc Sablon  we will be heading towards Red Bay , St Marys Harbour,  Cartwright, Happy Valley Goose bay and Labrador city. There is a great camping spot in Pinware but we may just travel on a bit further for the day to camp around st Mary’s harbour or even Cartwright if we get that far.

trip

Capture We will be using ioverlander as a guide for some off grid camping spots but for the most part we will probably drive and find a spot to make camp before five each day. I will be posting a list of our gear later on.

Below you can see a few of the ioverlander sites, i am sure we will be adding our own to this list 🙂

Capture

We will head to Churchill falls and hope to do a tour of the Churchill Falls Generating Station.

Then off to Labrador City we will head to Manicouagan Reservoir as this we have been told is a must see! Thereafter off to Baie-Comeau, QC where we will take the ferry to Matane, Head to Campbellton NB, Jacquet  River , Kouchibouguac National Park and back to NS. This section from Quebec to NS is really open nothing is set in concrete. I think we may just see how time goes to determine where we will end up on this section!

Once we get into the full swing of our trip planning i will list all our gear, trailers etc. we will be taking. Keep an eye out for updates until then happy travelling and many adventures to you all!

Stay tuned for an upcoming exciting product!

In the next couple weeks we will be offering up a new product item… so stayed tuned 😄 if you are big into over-landing this will suit you perfectly!

From us to you have a fabulous weekend and stay tuned for our exciting product unveiling 🍺

Not all roof top tents are the same!

Buyer beware we have heard numerous stories of people who fall into buying rtt’s from ‘new brands’ on the Canadian market, and end up with many issues. A lot of these pop up companies are just that, they bring in a few tents flog them and then they disappear, customers are left with a bad taste in their mouths as their warranty and customer service becomes obsolete!

We were the first company in Canada to manufacture roof top tents, previously the roof top tents were all imported from companies originating in the states.

Having been in this industry since 2011 and have made many changes in the design to enhance the tent and not just cosmetically. Our fabrics are high quality waterproof ripstop no leaking, tearing or bending of frames. Customers have been out in torrential rainfalls and strong winds and our rtt’s continue to stand the test of time. Our rtt’s will be able to be passed on for generations with care.

We are proud to stand behind our tents and are always available to talk text or email promptly. We are continuously improving our tents to provide the best product possible.

Our roof top tents all come with annex room no extra charges. The zippers in annex base and cover are ykk and the window zippers sbs. All bases are extruded diamond aluminum sheathing, Mattress is covered and wick proof. Hand strap for those that like to hold onto something when get down ladder. Windows can be rolled up too. Large gear bags for shoes or clothing.

The sundog X includes many extras which is incomparable to any other rtt out there. Check out our website below to see all listed features:

Wild Coast Roof Top Tents

Any questions give us a call, text or email us we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Spring is almost here I can’t wait to get our trailer and rtt ready to explore again! We also have an incredible trip planned to Newfoundland and Labrador later this year.. so keep eye out I will be posting more details as we plan this!
