Landrover Defender x 110 -2022

Finally, we can head out for some much-needed R&R. This year we are still treading carefully after all the covid restrictions etc and have decided to stay in Nova Scotia and head for Cape Breton! Fortunately, our backyard is incredibly beautiful, and we don’t have to go too far for a great adventure!

We are travelling in a convoy of three vehicles comprising of:

1. Ram Dually 3500 – King Bundutop, added canopy and room and square back bunduawn with walls.

2. Ford F150 – Standard Bundutop, added canopy and half wing bunduawn.

3. Landrover Defender x 110 (2022) Standard Bundutop

All three vehicles are totally rigged out for off grid travelling and exploring., with fridges, travel ovens, hot water systems, solar panels, dual battery setups, kayaks and so much more.

We head out tomorrow for two weeks, to explore the hidden gems of Cape Breton.

Dropping off our two rotties early and head towards Cape Breton, meeting up with our great mates on the way up. First night stay not planned, in fact nothing is set in stone, let’s just see what hidden gems we will come across.

As we go along, we will be posting hopefully every two days or so if we have reception and hope you follow along and enjoy this adventure with us…


Thanks to Landrover Halifax for their excellent customer service and help getting me my Defender before our trip! The best customer service and what a fantastic rig! I just love it… contact them for your defender πŸ™‚


Many thanks go out to Isaak Cape Breton Overlanding for helping us find some great spots in Cape Breton. He offers a self drive vehicle and will be offering tours too. He is extremely knowledgeable on Cape Breton so if you are heading up their way give him a shout!

Our 2020 overland trip…?

Our Bedslide!

Where to even begin…..

Since we are all experiencing social distancing with covid-19 our plans have to be put on hold until all of this is under control!

We are feeling disappointed but have to follow protocol and make sure everyone stays safe, that is our main priority.

Should August roll around and covid-19 has taken a back seat we will reassess our plans, until then we all wait and watch and hope for this to be over soon.

In the meantime we are prepping our F150 for future trips, we now have a slide installed, which is awesome! Next we have to analyze the space and see what we want to put where!

We will have battery packs, inverter and solar panels set up for the Bundutec and fridge to run off , we will have more details on that coming up.

We are considering putting in a low profile snomaster instead of the regular one, so we can access the inside of the fridge a little easier.

We have a water tank we used in our trailer which i think we may move over to the truck. It holds a good amount of water for our needs. Eco temp will be hooked up for instant hot water. These units are an absolute god send!

Then the stove i think for now we will keep as a separate unit, ie. not attach to the truck on a swivel as previously thought, this way we can literally move it anywhere.

Our bundutec roof top tent stores all our sleeping gear inside when closed so no need to worry about space for bedding and pillows, easy breezy!

The rest of the gear we still have to decide how to stash neatly and efficiently.

That is about it to date, now when we will actually get out to use the gear is another story πŸ™‚

So lets get rid of the virus, stay safe everyone and keep social distancing so we can hit the trails once more!

Snomaster Fridge/Freezers

These fridge/freezers are a big hit when it comes to camping of any sort, no more ice or soggy mess in a cooler! Set either side to a fridge or freezer or set both to either fridge or freezer, incredibly versatile and so easy and reliable. year warranty , transit bag and remote control all included.

The low profile models are ideal for under a tonneau cover in a truck or in a trailer where height is more restrictive

Below are all the models we carry, fantastic products well worth every penny!

Check out Snomaster.ca

Great customers!

We are so blessed to have met so many incredible people! Customers that have become friends there is nothing better! We are leaving on a overland trip in September with great friends we met through Wild Coast Tents but more on our Nor’easter expedition later!

Herewith a few shots from a lovely couple Jessica and Jesse and their amazing dogs to inspire you! They bought a Sundog RTT and joined us at Lala Phezulu this year too. Happy travels with your two furry friends 😊

Thanks guys you rock!

Where in the world …Wild Coast Tents!

A Wild Coast Roof Top Tent on the Wild Coast Of Africa!

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 πŸ™‚ 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
