The Sherpa has brought with it a new meaning to off-road camping. With as little as a click of a button you can enter the main heated sleeping cabin, then merely unclip the Alucab rooftop tent for the kids, pull out the awning, and you’re ready to settle in for the night.
Once you’ve got yourself sorted for the evening and dinner is cooking, you can now unclip the drop down shower pod and fire up the diesel water heater and get the kids cleaned up. Maybe even watch a DVD on your 24 inch LED TV in the main cabin after a long day of exploring this beautiful country. It sounds like it’s mom and dad’s turn to enjoy their time sitting around the fire with a nice glass of red.
The kitchen offers ample fridge space with two 30 Liter Isotherm fridge drawers to keep the food nice and fresh and the drinks cold and crisp. With a simple fold-down bench you can quickly access your pots and pans to start cooking up your finest camp dinner. We’ve also included a slide-out drawer for all the foods that don’t have to be refrigerated. Once dinner is all said and done, you can slide out the pop down sink to make cleanup a breeze.
Any serious camper, once you consider the list of inclusions, the level of design detail, and the quality of the craftsmanship, will conclude; that the Sherpa equates to fantastic value for money. But hey, how do you put a price on family memories?
