The Troopie can run a 2.8 Metre Rack as a standard size - making it one of the largest roof load carrying spaces available (Stock!) - Its suspension (Leaf sprung rear/Front rear) allows the Troopie to carry loads with stability and gives the vehicle a confident off-road stance in difficult terrain. Its long wheelbase and LSD or E-locking rear diff (Standard on almost the whole range) makes it a true weapon in the rough.
One of the best touring vehicles you can own. It has major wins on the roof tent front too - its huge roof space allows hardshell tents to be mounted well forward (As per pics beside) - leaving room on the roof for additional gear, and or a step-up platform for easy entrance into the tent.
The Troopie is in its own class as a 4 up tourer. Two in the tent, two in the truck. It's still got room for gear on the massive rack can carry heaps of fuel and water...
We have fitted countless RTT to Troopies, as well as awnings to stock and fibreglass roof conversions.
RTT give the Troopie 1st class accommodation with excellent ventilation as opposed to accommodation in the vehicle - adding a Tent to the roof also allows you to run seating internally for 4 or more.
Pole less wing awnings - Rack or without?
Awnings displayed in our pics are Ostrich 270 degree wing awnings, (poleless) 2.45m arms give plenty of room while setting up and pack up is achieved in under 20 seconds single-handed. Walls zip on to the awning also, creating a further 12sqm of outdoor shelter if required. Like all vehicles - we make brackets to fit up Pole less wing awnings to most common racks available for the troopcarrier. See our Fitting kits page here.
Tough Touring Pole less awning bracket systems have started being manufactured ....
Troop carriers can now run pole less wing awnings without a roof rack.
In the case of Pop tops / Kea Conversions, etc this is facilitated by our bracket that is gutter mounted. Its a custom order at the moment -
More on it here -
The brackets are extremely strong and prevent awning twist - allowing fitment of pole less wing awnings like the Ostrich 270 wing awning.
