Are you the proud owner of a 4×4/off-road vehicle in South Africa? Big Country is your definitive supplier and fitter of vehicle accessories that include roof racks, load bay covers, and camping accessories to expand your vehicle’s functionality and maximise storage space when you are out in the wilderness! Today, we talk about Tourtops – formerly referred to as Smartops – and how these load bay covers can bring out the best in your bakkie!
What is a Tourtop?
Tourtops are custom-designed load bay covers that add new dimensions to the rear end of a bakkie. A Tourtop serves multiple goals: securing the load bay; creating extra storage space on top of the bay; and carrying a total weight of 200 kg with its anchoring slots. These tops feature built-in dual locks to avoid the use of padlocks – sitting flush on the cover to perfectly integrate into its design. Therefore, you can enjoy a load bay cover that is ideally designed for your vehicle – as if your vehicle rolled off the assembly line with a Tourtop already installed!
Tourtop load bay covers are manufactured from aluminium and stainless steel – making them durable, light-weight, and ready for off-roading. These covers are dust- and water-resistant to deliver optimal protection for the contents of your load bay against the elements. The cover is supported by gas struts to support the weight and the accessories on top of the cover when it is open – even when the top has a full load resting on it. We can also fit stronger gas struts to support more weight on the cover itself.
Getting the Most Out of My Tourtop
At Big Country 4×4, we offer Tourtops for Volkswagen Amarok, Toyota Hilux, and Ford Ranger bakkies, along with a variety of accessories that can extend the functionality of your load bay cover. Our accessories include bicycle mounting brackets, jerry can holders, gas bottle holders, and Max Trax holders to maximise the available space on top of the load bay cover. As a result, your bakkie can store useful accessories both inside and on top of your load bay to ensure that you have everything you need to conquer the challenges of the bushveld and 4×4 adventure trails!
