THE LION SLEEPS TONIGHT

Cus­tom Canopies’ small­est off-road trailer, the Lion’s Cub, is the per­fect match for small tow­ing ve­hi­cles – and it comes at a very rea­son­able price too.

Small SUVs like the Suzuki Jimny and Ford Ecos­port work great in cities with nar­row streets and tight park­ing spa­ces, but when it comes to tow­ing, these guys drew the short end of the stick. Jan Venter of Cus­tom Canopies saw the need for an af­ford­able light­weight off-road trailer and built the Lion’s Cub for light tow­ing ve­hi­cles. Jan says he fixed the tare at 250 kg. We un­hitched this trailer in Lim­popo and for four days sought shel­ter in it from the Bushveld’s heavy thun­der­storms and swel­ter­ing heat to find out if the con­fined space would give us cabin fever.
