ORNATE NEWCOMER IN THE LION’S DEN
Custom Canopies has created a luxury version of the Lion’s Den De-lux bush trailer. According to Jan Venter, owner of Custom Canopies, this model will be known as the Lion’s Den Supreme, and boasts five new features that the De-lux model doesn’t have – including, among other things, a gas braai that slides straight out of the hull.
As with the other models, the outer kitchen is in the tail, where a door lifts upwards to form a roof over the kitchen. Two spare wheels are mounted on this door (the De-lux’s spare wheel is on the A-frame). Gas struts help support the door, and you don’t have to be the size of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to lift it. The Supreme has space for an 82 ℓ fridge/freezer, compared to the De-lux’s 60 ℓ model.
Besides this, the Supreme has a nose cone in which you can store two gas cylinders. The power supply is also rigged in here, and there’s a rack for wood on top. Inside there’s a basin, and there’s extra space above the island bed.
The figures 4,2 (l) x 1,9 (w) x 2,1 m (h); tare weight 720 kg; payload 780 kg; GVM 1 500 kg (with a 1 500 kg rubber axle). Price R280 000 (without fridge).
