24th Jan 2018

2018 International Sportsmen’s Expo

This year’s International Sportsmen’s Expo was in Sacramento, Jan 18-21, Rack N Road partnered with Freespirit Recreation for a booth to showcase their High Country roof top tent, and Overlander Trailer. Their roof top tents are easy to use and can be mounted to many different applications, whether it be on a trailer or vehicle roof rack. The Overlander trailer is great for taking off road and provides 45 cubic feet of storage space. In addition to these, Freespirit also has the Readylight solar powered light. This is the perfect light for any situation, it features four mini light pods and the main + mini pod lights have a high and low feature. The mini pods can also be used as flashlights and emergency beacons. Each mini pod has USB charging capabilities, a strong magnet, and hideaway hook feature and can last 5+ hours.

A few other products brought to show were the Kuat NV 2.0 hitch mounted bike rack and the Sherpa 2.0 hitch mounted bike rack. Nebo Tools also helped us out by providing us with some of their popular flashlights to sell.  Another light option we had on display to sell was the MPowerd Luci Lights. These are inflatable AND solar powered lights. Once they are inflated, they act as lanterns for any camping, fishing or hunting trip, and can pretty much be used anywhere since they are lightweight, small and easy to pack with your essentials.

Last but not least, we had the Weigh Safe adjustable ball mounts for sale. These are tow ball mounts with a built-in weigh scale to help you tow safely. It lets you know that you are within your capacity for the tongue weight on your trailer.

Tepui Fest 2015! Come Join the Fun!

Tepui Fest October 16-18th, 2015  In a weeks time, Tepui will be holding its annual Tepui Fest. This outdoor extravaganza brings Tepui lovers from all over California to Hollister OHV park in Hollister, California. From October 16th to the 18th people will be able to get first hand know-hows with Tepui employees and truly understand what it means to own a Tepui tent. Over the weekend period, Tepui owners not only gain a better understanding of their Tepui tent, but they will also gain a better appreciation towards their Tepui tent. During this weekend newcomers will begin to understand why Tepui owners will only stick with a Tepui tent and why Tepui is rated at the top for any camping experience.

RackNRoad will always stick with Tepui, which is why we are a titled sponsor and so we know that Tepui will go above and beyond any persons expectations when it comes to a great outdoors vacation. A week doesn’t go by when a person isn’t calling for a Tepui tent. This just reinforces the fact that Tepuis products are quality and that they will always stand by their products.

So, come on down to Tepui Fest 2015 and see what all the fuss is about with the Tepui tent! If you can’t make it don’t hesitate to get a hold of any of our RackNRoad store locations and any one of our employees would be more thank happy to go over the right Tepui tent for you!
