Adventuring out west with a Four Wheel Camper Hawk Flatbed Camper
The nation’s first national park, Yellowstone, remains an awe-inspiring place with geysers, mud pots, and wildlife. However, a unique attraction presented itself in the parking lot outside Mammoth, Wyoming: the Four Wheel Campers (FWC) Hawk Flatbed Camper. Tourists gawked and took pictures of our adventure vehicle/camper.

We entered Yellowstone late in the day when the rest of the traffic was leaving the park. Immediately, we noticed the grandeur and beauty of Yellowstone. The Ram 3500, equipped with a diesel engine, motored along the Madison River. We noticed a few buffalo nibbling the tall green grasses.
Our site at Mammoth Campground proved ideal. The camper’s pop top erected easily; and before long, Louise and Lilly were cooking dinner. A few campers approached to inquire about the truck/camper combo. A bull elk wandered through camp.
The FWC Hawk Camper can transition to “travel mode” in a matter of minutes. The following morning, I dropped the top, locked the latches, and we were off. We stopped at Mammoth Springs and hiked through the
