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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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

Are you ready for Roof Top Tent season!

roof top tents

For those of you that brave the cold and snow in your roof top tents, you are all fabulous in my book ๐Ÿ™‚ I prefer the winter camping in a tipi with a wood stove, we have yet to figure out a wood stove heating solution for roof top tents ๐Ÿ™‚

Our new shipment is here do drop on by to see the new outpost and sandpiper.

Our outpost and Sandpiper models have a few changes, like fabulous sky lights, shoe pockets and more.

Theย Papillion and Hideout are new models based on the same size as the outpost and sandpiper. However the fabric on the tent is poly oxford and not poly cotton. Much lighter fabric.

The rain fly has a different shape as do the windows which can roll right back to allow more air flow into the tent. The annex rooms are different too as the have the ladder on the outside of the annex room as opposed to the Outpost and Sandpiper which have the extension and therefore the ladder inside the Annex room.

Nitinat Lake, Vancouver Island.

Nitinat Lake, Vancouver Island.

“Nitinat Lake – is connected to the wild Pacific Ocean by a channel and this connection gives the lake “ocean-like” characteristics. For example, the lake is about 40% salt water; it is tidal – rising and falling about 5 feet during our visit (See the tideline in the second photo); it also has an abundance of Dungeness crabs, salmon, seals, sea otters, eagles, etc.

Also the Carmanah Walbran Valley (Home to ancient old growth Stika Spruce and Cedar trees some estimated to be over 1,000 years old) is about 20 minutes away and has great trails for hiking (3rd picture). The 4th picture is looking up between three ancient Sitka Spruce trees called the Three Sisters.

Loving the Tent. Regards, George”

Thank you George and Dawn for the fabulous photos of our beautiful Canada!

This is how it arrived to us, a wooden lid and lots of work ahead of us, but so cool never the less!

  • ย  We removed the wooden lid and wooden compartments inside turned it over and started to strip off parts
  • ย  We then started sanding and stripping of flaky paint and rust, we were surprised at how little rust there was, the base had been undercoated so that was just dirty but rust free.

Still a lot more cleaning up to do of rust and old paint but i think this is going to look pretty spectacular when done… then we have another two, in the pot below, to do… ๐Ÿ™‚ looks like we are suckers for punishment!

Put the tires back on and have decided to do the undercoating once all the wiring is redone.

This is shaping up nicely and is super solid!

Undercoating is done and now it is off to get painted and re-wired!
