Downsizing From Travelling In A Caravan To A 4WD Canopy

After leaving his job as a Green Keeper, Riley Judd decided to become a full time traveller. What originally began as working on a cattle station for a few months, turned into a full lap of Australia! Riley Judd has spent the past few years exploring Australia in various vehicles, including a Jayco Eagle and most recently a 15ft 2001 Kedron pop top, towed by a 2009 Holden Colorado.

Having experienced some of Australia's most breathtaking locations, Riley has now resolved to enhance his adventures further by setting up the ultimate 4WD canopy for weekend off-grid trips. Accustomed to living entirely off-grid thanks to a full Enerdrive e-SYSTEM Board and Lithium Battery Setup in the Kedron, Riley opted for the power system detailed below in his 4WD.
