How do you prepare for a month-long Safari, where the family takes the truck and camps in some of South Africa’s most extreme game reserves? Well, if you happen to be product designer Mike Voss, you design and build a modular truck cap to help you organize gear and create the perfect platform for your rooftop tent with a view.

SmartCap was formed out of the rugged terrain of Africa. Every inch was built to withstand the twisting and jostling of off-road trails. To be watertight during torrential flash floods. And dust-tight over thousands of miles driving through the reserves—the African dust seeping into everything it encounters. Everything that is, except the SmartCap.

SmartCap is located just outside of Durban, in South Africa, housed in an 88,000 Sq. Ft. design and manufacturing center. Within these walls, we think and dream about how to create smarter truck beds. We’re sort of obsessed by it, really. How can we create tools that let a truck owner build his truck to fit his wants and needs—to fit his life?

That is our passion. And that is your journey. Let’s travel together!

SmartCap on Hersch X

While building smarter truck beds is at the core of what we do, equipping the lives of those around us is why we do it.That is in large part the reason that our team was so excited to parter with the Hersch X team. The work their organization, VOX, is doing to bring fresh water to the people of Africa, is a very noble cause and something that is extremely close to our heart. We couldn’t be more proud and honored to be a part of helping them achieve their goal of raising a million dollars—something that can literally improve the lives of millions of people.
