WHETHER YOU TAKE THE WHOLE FAMILY OR HOOK UP THE VAN FOR A QUIET WEEKEND ,
WE KNOW YOU NEED A SETUP THAT IS EASY!
Rob, Tracy, Marli & Ziggy from The Blonde Nomads are currently gearing up for their next big adventure around Australia! This fun-loving young family have toured around Australia in their trusty Ranger since the beginning of 2017. They sold their house, gave-away possessions and hooked up a caravan before heading off to experience life outside of the 9-5 ‘hamster wheel’ ! When it was time to build their new Ranger, they came to see us because they knew we could fit out their dream tray and canopy to make life on the road convenient and care-free!
WE ALL KNOW THAT IF SOMETHING ISN'T EASY TO USE, YOU WON'T USE IT! THAT'S WHY ALL OF OUR CANOPIES ARE DESIGNED TO HAVE EASILY INTERCHANGEABLE INTERNAL OPTIONS!
Watch the video below to see Rob and Tracy run through what makes their Ranger perfect for them!
As you can see, The Blonde Nomads have setup their tray and canopy with a layout that works for them and their young family. They placed a priority on accessibility, making the 3rd rear door the obvious choice. The tray and canopy provides a versatile platform that can serve as everything from a base camp to extra, easily accessible storage if you are towing a van.
Ideal tray and canopy lengths for towing (either van or camper) are based around the 1650mm tray setup. When paired with a 1400mm canopy, access to the towball is greatly improved and the risk of impacting the front of the van with rear of the vehicle is reduced significantly. This is due to the rear wall accessories sitting closer to the rear axle and reducing overhang.
The Blonde Nomads are just one example of how you can set up a MITS Alloy tray to suit your needs.
The Ranger setup has:
- 1850mm tray
- 1000mm under tray toolboxes
- Flared mud guards
- 30L poly headboard water tank
- 1500mm trundle drawer with lid
- Removable sideboards – full length
- 1800mm canopy
- Canopy length roof rack
- 3rd rear door
- Single drawer and table combo
- Upright fridge divider cage and mount
- Powder coating on canopy and toolbox doors
