The extensive variety of canopies available on the market for most double cabs, single cabs and super cabs makes choosing the most suitable canopy not as simple as finding one that fits. Before diving in and purchasing a canopy from Honest Eddy’s Budget Canopy Emporium or the first dealer you find, it’s important to decide what you need in a canopy. Are you storing gear on the roof of the canopy and is a roof rack required? Can the canopy take the weight of your roof top tent? What materials and material weights are most suited to your particular travel…

All too often, 4x4s are driven with too heavy a load. You might be towing a big boat or trailer, perhaps you have loaded up a large pile of sand for a construction project. Most often, when overlanding with the family, your vehicle is heavily loaded with the added weight of a canopy, drawer system, roof-top tent, awning, fridge and full tanks of water and fuel. In these instances, the rear is sagging, headlights are pointing towards the sky, the steering is very light, and the suspension is hitting the bump stops on every undulation. Bad news. You can fix…

We recently paid a visit to the custom off-road fabricator and outfitter, ONCA Off-Road, at their headquarters in Kempton Park, and got down to the nitty-gritty of how the company had started and where it would be heading in the near future.

Where it all started Lee says that he, his brother Len and their parents created ONCA Off-Road 16 years ago, drawing on the experience they’d gained from the family’s steel fabrication company. The two…

I enjoy music a lot, more so than most people I know. I grew up playing my dad’s seven-singles on his retro Hammerstein radiogram. It was an FM unit with a turntable. Despite his best efforts to lock the glass covering of the turntable section, I always managed to open it. When I think back, I realise that my dad (an Afrikaner) had a surprisingly comprehensive collection of 60s Brit Rock; I think my British mom contributed a little. His Valiant had an 8-track tape player − and the likes of Jose Feliciano, Nana Mouskouri, Johnny Mathis, John Denver and…
