These are just a few of our important gear items not forgetting food and clothing 😂

I will be doing a daily trip overview once we are on the way to keep you all posted on our trip. We will be leaving on Sat 8th September driving up to Sydney and taking the late ferry to Port Aux Basques and I will keep you posted on where we will head next.

The trailer is pretty much rigged out and ready to be loaded, we are using the outpost on this trip and a 270 awning. We usually only take sleeping bags but I think we will take a duvet as well this time since we have the space and it might get a little chilly at night in September. In the meantime we are sorting out gear and packing it all up and stacking it in the garage while waiting on our cap to arrive, time is short and it is supposed to be here by labour day so hold thumbs we need this cap!

Major thanks extended to Belliveau Motors who kindly sponsored us some garb for our trip! If you are looking for great service from a dealership you cannot go wrong with these guys! Huge shout out to Richard, he literally does it all from tree maintenance to executive decisions, you are the bomb, thank you! Eben thanks for going to so much effort in finding us the trucks we wanted and for answering all our questions! Follow them on FACEBOOK

Scout Trailer Take 1…

The first weekend “real use” of the scout trailer and we have to say we are both impressed with this trailer! It tracks extremely well, so well in fact that fully loaded we had to keep looking back to see it was still there, we really did not feel this trailer at all, which makes for really easy driving and we had her loaded!

Locked and loaded 🙂 Ready to Roll!

 

 

We put a Snomaster 42s in one of the back sliders with a battery pack behind it for all the lights and the fridge. On the slider next to the fridge we made a custom box to sit on the slider so we could pack her to the hilt 🙂

Snomaster 42s

We also designed a little table top that sits on the wheel well for additional cooking space, which was tremendous!

IMG_0568
Table top and Snomaster

We had a sundogx on the top of the scout and a 270 awning which both served their purpose more than adequately!IMG_0572

IMG_0563
If you are looking to buy a trailer take a serious look at the Scout, they are an incredibly well built aggressive trailers

Below are our setups, a scout trailer with a sundogx and 270 awning and a F150 with a big sky and a 270 awning, lots of mods to both setups. More on the mods as we prepare for our trip in September around Labrador and Newfoundland.

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

Any guess where in the world the next one is heading….. stay tuned for the next “where in the world wild coast tents” 🙂

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.

20180429_123655

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.

Call or email with any questions you may have on the Scout Trailer we are here to help!
