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.

-18C Camping in a Varanger Camp

I always find this time of year the toughest, I think for me the worst part being an ex South African is not seeing enough sunlight in winter… this winter seems particularly bad and full of grey cold days…snow storm after snow storm… but there is always light at the end of the tunnel…

We recently shipped out a varanger camp to a customer in Ontario and received some really nice feed back and that is enough to make my day feel sunny and warm 🙂

Spent my first practice night in the tent in the backyard.  Best sleep I’ve had in a long time.   Only got down to about -18C so not yet a true test but certainly very comfortable.  I left the tent up for a couple of days including a fairly major snowstorm and it was perfect.

Thanks Mike

Below is a photo of the top hat where the chimney exits, this vent can be opened or closed with the strings on the inside of the tent. You can also see the drying rack that comes with the tent, to hang dish cloths or socks etc.

  You can also purchase additional racks below to hold your kettle or lights or boots 🙂

The above photo shows the inner tent with a frontier Stove for heat. Attached to the frontier stove is the water heater which is super nice to always have hot water on tap. The water is heated up via the chimney and works very well. Alternatively you can go for the more expensive Helsport stove below, which works extremely efficiently.

Here is a Helsport stove being used in the Valhall tent. This tent has a spacious vestibule room big enough to accommodate table and chairs in the middle and on either end can accommodate two inner tents for additional warmth in the winter camping months. It has 6 entries and two entries with mosquito netting. Because of the numerous guy lines, like the varanger, this tent too will stand up well in howling winter storms or summer wind and rain storms.

So come on out and lets play during these cold winter months, if you love camping why stop just because its winter, here are some really cool options to be able to stay warm and enjoy the outdoors when its chilly, snowing or raining…
