Feather-lite Roof Top Tent

About Front Runner Outfitters – A Company Profile

Front Runner Outfitters

 “Travel. Dream. Design. Build. Test. Evolve. Repeat.”

The Beginning

Once upon a time, a group of friends from South Africa, sat around a campfire in Botswana Africa, and dreamed about starting a business, producing expedition-based equipment, that was the best in every way. 

Front Runner Begins

The majestic baobab tree and the mighty elephant were their inspirations. They had the engineering background, the manufacturing experience, and the off-road racing skills. 

Now they have the passion!  Their new equipment would be stronger and smarter than all the others.

With a new renaissance approach to business manufacturing, Front Runner was born. They thought innovatively from day one. 

They would use new materials, superior practices, and quality intelligent designs. Their products would be made to last a lifetime. 

Today, their products, such as the roof racks, water tanks, tents, awnings, drawer systems, and many other camping accessories, are in the hands of extreme athletes and novice campers, worldwide.

The Products

Front Runner leads the way in all off-road expedition products, from racks, load bars, camping equipment, storage, water systems, fuel storage, refrigeration, batteries, and more.

The racks, for example, are built completely in house.  They use high grade aluminium and 3CR12 stainless steel to ensure the longevity of the product.  They don’t cut any corners. 

They know that the consumers can tell quality when they see it, and that’s what they were going to give them. 

The construction process is heavy duty, with laser cut fabrication, precision bending, and high grade powder coating, which will create a solid piece of equipment. 

What better place to test their products than in Africa, where the harshest conditions on the planet challenge them.

It comes with a retractable ladder, which is light and easy to handle.  With the flick of your wrist, you will have an instant bedroom.  All you will need are your sleeping bags and pillows. 

No insects or bugs will get you during the night because of the screen doors and windows. The tent fabric is a 400D strong, mould resistant, water proof, PVC coated, heavy poly cotton.

The Slanted Water Tankt Runner Slanted Water Tank

This 50 liter (13.2 gal.) tank is designed to fit behind the slanted back seats.  It is very versatile and designed to work with a variety of vehicles. 

It is made from food grade polyethylene with plastic pipe fittings.  It is BPA free due to the color, which prevents much light from getting to the water and allowing algae to grow. 

Never fear … Front Runner has the hoses and taps.  The measurements are 15.2” tall x 39.5” wide x 7.5” deep.  For a little extra, you can even add a tyre valve for pressurizing the water in the tank. 

You might need a shower after a long day of adventure travel. If this tank will not fit in your vehicle, check out the WTAN004 27Lt water bladder, or the WTAN002 footwell tank.
