There’s an old joke that asks: What is the best 4×4 on the market? Answer: a rental vehicle.
Admittedly, the joke’s a bit stale these days, but love it or hate it, the humour does highlight the rigours of rental life. Imagine a vehicle that spends 80% of its life off-road, in remote regions, driven by people with very little mechanical sympathy, and very often, limited overland and/or 4×4-driving experience.
Well, that’s exactly what the Alu-Cab Khaya campers endure every year – more than 5 million combined kilometres of remote African travel within the rental market. Needless to say, these journeys serve as the perfect trial and error field test – each of which shapes the development, durability, reliability, and of course, the user-friendliness of our campers.
Ultimately, this 16-year evolution has brought us to the 2-sleeper and 4-sleeper Khaya Campers. These drive-off units are produced with either a black treadplate of silver treadplate finish and are designed to maintain your vehicle’s versatility, without compromising on creature comforts and functionality. Boasting a starting dry weight of just 400 kg, the 2-sleeper Khaya does a great job of balancing functional cabin space with a compact exterior design that doesn’t prohibit access to remote campsites. Much of this is made possible thanks to the Khaya’s tried and trusted aluminium construction. Will suit most mid-sized DC (Shortbed) and XC (Long bed) pick-ups and is available in three options as follows;
Khaya Basic: Includes a high-level stop light, mounting kit, mattress and tent.
Khaya 2/Comfort: Khaya Basic + electrical 220V charger, 7x LED dual colour lights and wiring loom (excl. battery). Internal kitchen unit with basic plumbing and a dometic unit. External kitchen unit, all canvas bags, midgie net at rear door & recovery grid.
Khaya 4/Family: Khaya Basic + electrical 220V charger, 7x LED dual colour lights and wiring loom (excl. battery). Internal kitchen unit with basic plumbing and a dometic unit. External kitchen unit, all canvas bags, midgie net at rear door & recovery grid.
Please enquire to see if the Khaya would suit your vehicle.
But the real gem is being able to park the Khaya, off your vehicle (at home or at your office) so that it’s ready to rock and roll for any adventure. With the Khaya, there are no boundaries to your freedom, no routes to worry about, and no trailers to hitch, just load up and hit the road!
