Overland trailers aren’t made for RV parks. They’re made for overlanding, traveling where there’s little or no road. You could be forging a river or two, and climbing steep mountain trails. The point is to travel over unpaved, unimproved roads.
I want to give a big SHOUT OUT to Dan and the guys at The 4×4 Podcast. Dan is serving in the armed forces. In episode 103, Dan talks about his overland journey from Kansas to Alaska. The overland trailer Dan and his family used is home built. Dan bought the trailer frame, updated the suspension for his off-road needs, then built the box. He topped it off with an overland tent.
Overland Trailers And Vehicles
One of the great things about camping is there’s something for every budget. Like us, Dan’s Jeep is also a daily driver. Just do a simple search for expedition vehicles and you’ll find a huge budget spread. Everything from a low cost rooftop tent to a multi-million dollar safari vehicle will surely show up in the results.
Pay As You Go
Doing this type of camping also allows you to start with the basics, then add equipment and upgrades as time and money allow. You could start with the tent on your vehicle. Then you can add the trailer and equipment as funds become available. Just start with a master plan so you have a finished goal in mind.
The Future Of Camping and RVing
We recorded a whole episode on this a few weeks ago, and I deleted it. As the population grows, and the environmental restrictions redefine our vehicles, the wonderful world of camping will have to evolve. What will this look like? How will your children and grandchildren experience the great outdoors if they don’t even own a car or truck?
Camping With Pets
Just a reminder of your responsibilities as a pet owner. You love your dog, and he may be friendly. That doesn’t mean you just let him loose to roam the campgrounds. In fact, that’s a great way to lose your dog.
We will finish the show off with a few bad RV ads.Share This:
