There are any number of Ute Canopy manufacturers throughout the country. The trick if finding one that does a good job and has something different about them. Well we found one such manufacturer – Ute Mate, in Mackay QLD of all places. Terry and Wendy Coad were avid campers and designed a slide on canopy that allowed them quick and easy camping but also doubled as a tradie canopy as well.
Like all good manufacturing stories the interest they generated when they were camping has led them to now build a range of canopies for a range of budgets.
The canopy we are interested in here is the Travel Mate, which is made of fibreglass construction that gives strength as well as insulation. There are two internal walls to create three airtight compartments. Unlike a lot of ubiquitous canopies the Travel Mate has quite a pleasing style.
