Rodezi - Down Under Camping


The design came about when our mate bought a new 4WD with a nudge bar and had no way of attaching a “rocket launcher”, and could not find anything else to carry his fishing rods on his regular trips to Morton and Frazer Island.

He said “Sprotty make me something that works”.  A conversation mixed a few beers and bundy’s, a couple of coasters and a pen – the idea was coming together.  The next day the work started. Kyran was in the shed every day after work.  He glued a few water pipe connections together attached another pipe to add height so that the rods and reels would clear the bonnet of the vehicle.  He then needed a clamp of some kind to attach it to the bar (75mm).  Many options were investigated and a final design was formulated. A provisional patent application was lodged at the end of January

During the following months prototypes were being produced and upgraded regularly, new ideas were tried, bits and pieces were purchased and things were cut, glued and/or welded to something else.

3Di Design  drew up the Rodezi Rack and smoothed the corners off a standard patent application was filed.   A prototype was then produced (literally carved out of a block of plastic).

The Rodezi Rack is moulded from impact modified glass filled nylon by B & C Plastics in Brisbane.  The Aluminium is sourced through Ullrich on the Gold Coast.
