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.
