For those of you who live in the UK you will be very familiar with Trek Overland. It started on its journey over twenty years ago when adventure enthusiasts Tim Brennan and his wife, Clare started to build a vehicle for their own expeditions before setting up their hugely successful 4WD accessory businesses Trek Overland and Mobile Storage Systems.
The Trek Overland team initially started to import roof rack tents and developed their business at the picturesque Lund Court Farm, Nawton, near Helmsley in the UK where they also modified and in some cases, completely rebuilt high spec Land Rover expedition vehicles.Over the years Trek Overland developed an international reputation for building modified vehicles for well-known organisations and for famous documentaries including the very well-received Long Way Down television series starring Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman.They have also worked closely with internationally renowned organisations that include Born Free Foundation and the Land Rover Experience, to name but a few.
In recent years, the focus of the expanding Trek Overland team has evolved into becoming a retailer of high quality 4WD touring equipment which now includes the high quality and very popular Australian DARCHE range of camping and overlanding related products. Trek Overland are the UK’s /British Isles sole importer of DARCHE products, bringing these very much sought after products to the British Isles. As Clare said ‘’As a family business we have always associated ourselves with high quality products and that’s why they are delighted to be the UK distributors for DARCHE’’.
The Australian range of 4WD touring gear is very well respected as a premium brand down under. Using superior quality materials in all of its outdoor gear range the team at DARCHE constantly develop, research and refine new materials and technologies to ensure DARCHE products remain leaders in terms of innovation, quality and durability.Trek Overland now provides the full range of DARCHE products all of which can be viewed on their easy to use website and at their HQ near Helmsley in the UK .If you are a frequent reader of TURAS Camping and 4WD Magazine channels, you will no doubt have seen some photos or videos of our team using or demonstrating some DARCHE products. We are big fans of DARCHE here at TURAS, and it is great to see this high-quality Australian brand now available in the British Isles as it spreads its wings globally.
Established nearly twenty years ago Mobile Storage Systems has been a market leader in high quality, hand built storage and security products for the Land Rover Defender and Discovery.Mobile Storage Systems offers a wide range of innovative systems that are all finished to a very high standard.
