Why the Vagabond Rogue Teardrop Camper is perfect for cross-country road trips.

Buyers Guide

Overview


If you’re hunting for a way to experience all that Africa’s wilderness has to offer, cross-country exploring is the way to go. With Vagabond’s Rogue Teardrop Camper, exploring the African wilderness goes from daunting to exciting. Whether you’re the type who prefers to rough it or one who opts for comfort, our Rogue Camper offers you the best of both worlds.

The Rogue Teardrop Camper is sturdy, light-weight, feature-rich and budget-friendly, making it the ultimate travel companion. For those who seek adventure beyond the borders of our country, this is why the Rogue Camper is perfect for longer journeys. 



No EB Licence required


Let’s start off with one of the main reasons the Rogue Teardrop Camper is a great choice, regardless of your desired journey. You don’t need an EB licence. EB licenses are required when your vehicle is towing anything that exceeds a GVM of 750kg, which is the exact weight of The Rogue. This makes it a great way for newcomers to enter the camper scene.


Hassle-free galavanting

While we’re on the subject of weight, the Rogue’s light-weight design is perfect for taking on unconventional roads. Whether it’s the sandy roads of Namibia or the muddy tracks of Zambia, the lightness of the Rogue allows you to navigate these conditions with ease compared to heavier caravans that often find themselves getting stuck because of their sheer weight.

Sporting a galvanized chassis with an axle rating of 1.4 ton and a five-leaf suspension, this super camper allows you to get a bit more off the beaten track. 

The Rogue also has a narrow body at 2120 cm, which makes it about as wide as your average bakkie. This means that you won’t have any problems using your vehicles side mirrors and can maintain a safe awareness of your surroundings on the road.

Facing the Elements

The Rogue has a monocoque (no joins) fibreglass hardshell body that is covered with powder coated checker plate and insulated with polyurethane foam. This makes it extremely resistant to harsher weather conditions and travel damage, aspects that you can certainly expect when heading into the wilderness.

The Rogue also features a pressure lock door system that tightly locks your door to the body, preventing dust and water from slipping into the interior, situations that you can often encounter when heading off the beaten track such as dust storms and heavy rainfall.

This protection should also bring you some peace of mind when considering the dangers of encountering wildlife. For example, much of Botswana’s wild isn’t confined within gated areas so you will likely find yourself camping in places where wild predators roam. In these situations, you can be sure that the Rogue will offer your ample protection.

A Home away from Home

Cross-country exploring means that you’re going to spend a lot of time on the road and, once you enter the wilder parts of Africa, you’re going to have a hard time finding access to the amenities you’re used to. Fortunately, the Rogue comes with a string of luxuries that allows you to easily tough it out in the wilderness.

The Rogue comes with a fully integrated and user-friendly kitchen that boasts a 50L SnoMaster fridge, a two-burner stove, a microwave and a plumbed tap and basin. This is all complemented by multiple storage compartments. Most of the features, including the burner stove, storage compartments, microwave and fridge are detachable, perfect for longer camping stays.

But wait, there’s more! The Rogue is fitted with various plug points and USB ports, all powered by deep cycle batteries and a 12v/220v charging system. 

Finally, the Rogue also features a private shower unit supplied by the integrated 80L water tank. Just because you’re in the wild doesn’t mean you have to smell like the wild!
