We bought a RhinoCab Lite aluminium canopy for our Nissan Navara d/c from Sheer Gear. Having left the order rather late for a scheduled trip to the Wild Coast we put a great deal of pressure on them to speedily deliver the canopy from Pretoria, where they are manufactured, to Knysna where it was to be fitted. Johnathan of Sheer Gear was very helpful and succeeded in getting the canopy to Knysna well before the originally quoted delivery date. We were able to have it fitted and get the interior sorted out with a day to spare before leaving on our road trip. It was also, importantly, considerably less expensive than any quotes we had from competitors. During the trip the canopy performed faultlessly with no dust entering the load area. Everything inside also remained dry - there was a lot of rain, river crossings, mud etc. to contend with - while the access through the side and back doors was excellent and made loading and unloading almost effortless. It appears to be very strongly made and well finished. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Sheer Gear if you are looking for a canopy supplier for your bakkie. Howard - Plettenberg Bay.
