    There’s no point in driving around with your roofrack/ rooftop tent if you’re not on holiday. Save fuel (and wear & tear) by installing a Fredlin hoist. This proudly South African product solves the problem of where to store your roofrack/ rooftop tent, canopy, or even a sports car hardtop: up and out of the way! The Fredlin hoist fastens securely to your garage roof or carport, is easily installed and can be operated by one person.


    One Fredlin hoist will be given away every month to the lucky reader featured in Me & My 4×4. Simply send a photograph – 1 MB or larger – and the answers to the categories shown below, to Vehicle and driver must be featured together in an off-road setting. (No driveway shots, please.)


    Fill in the categories below (feel free to add more detail) when you submit a high-resolution photograph of you and your 4×4 rig.

    This was at a recent 4×4 day at Sandwani north of Pretoria. The picture shows the enormous  campfire “licking the clouds” as the sun set over the South Africa bushveld.
