Ordered More Parts

Sherpa Equipment Co. awning mounting brackets

I was thinking about how I’m going to mount items to my Sherpa Equipment Company roof rack when it arrives (in a few months… ugh!), and I realized that the mounting hardware for my awning is made for round tubes. I needed to get an attaching mount for the Sherpa, so I went to their website and found accessories for the roof rack.

“Smileys!”

I also ended up purchasing two sets of “Smileys” which can be used to attach slings and straps to keep cargo tied down, and I also purchased two accessory boards with aid in attaching Rotopax and recovery boards (of which I have both).

Accessory boards. These will allow easy mounting of additional stuff.

The hilarious part is that the accessories will likely arrive far before the roof rack does. That’s okay; at least I’ll be completely ready to go to assemble my roof layout before putting it on my Gunship which will make it easier to try different layouts.

Overlanding isn’t cheap, but I’m adopting the mindset of, “Buy once, cry once.” Everything I’ve been buying so far has been high-quality and made to last, most of which have lifetime warranties. I can’t wait to start putting this stuff to good use!
