Back to School With Bob Wohlers
Article from TruckCamperAdventure: First and foremost I’m an outdoor adventurer—I love learning about the natural world. God is on full display when you study the natural world. This is what excites me. I love waking up in the remote backcountry with snow covering the tent or camper, or traversing switchbacks down a steep challenging trail, deep with anticipation of a lovely dispersed campsite in the valley beyond. The Hawk model is feature rich without any … Read the full article
Four Wheel Campers – The Only Way To Travel Across America!
Article from Van Clan: We love all types of campers here at Van Clan. From your Mercedes Sprinter Conversions right through to your small travel trailers, if we find a vehicle that’s fit for off grid living then it’s good enough for us. Usually, our experience with testing out camper van conversions lasts a few hours at most (we have serious commitment issues), but if you’ve been following us on Twitter and Instagram you’ll know that we’ve spent the past week in the United States of America test driving two four wheel campers across California! We’ve had an amazing time checking out some of the incredible sights and… Read the full article
Four Wheel Campers: The perfect camper for your next off-road adventure.
Article from Outbound Living: Four Wheel Campers is one of the pioneers of truck campers. They have been in business for over 45 years, which has allowed them to create campers with just the right layout, features, and functionality that any off-road camping enthusiast will love. I tested one of their campers “The Hawk” in various terrain and conditions. I picked up the camper at their headquarters in Sacramento, CA and traveled down the California Coast all the way to Santa Barbara. I then cut east all the way to the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park in Utah. Temperatures in the desert dropped down to a freezing 16 degrees Fahrenheit at night. The built-in furnace was really put to Read More…
Detour Along the Trans-America Trail
Article by OutdoorX4: One week before opening day of deer season, I received an email inviting me to fill a hunting spot on my good friend’s private land. The spot was mine if I could squeeze in nearly 800 miles of travel from Denver, Colorado and arrive near Westville, Oklahoma in time for the hunt. With the email staring me down, I quickly mapped a route from Denver east/south-east to Westville. Highways and more highways… expedient but, not how I like to travel. With time ticking, my normal process of laying out a detailed backroad route would not work. Having previously explored 1,300+ miles of the Shadow of the Rockies trail through New Mexico and Colorado, I had found a solution; the Read More…
Custom Overland RAM 2500 Cummins Truck with Four Wheel Camper and XPTray Flatbed
Article from Savage Camper: As far as the living quarters, René went with Four Wheel Camper’s Hawk Flat Bed Model (Limited Woolrich Edition). The base model itself is lightweight, at only 1325 lbs. It has a low profile, for easier overhead clearance. Also, less wind drag head on for fuel efficiency; and less impact of side winds when driving. René could have gone with FWC’s larger Grandby flat bed camper, but he wanted to have more storage space, represented by the large box that sits behind the cab. This space would be occupied for seating in the larger Grandby. René has 2 setups for this large storage space: one for camping with buddies, where it holds a kegerator with CO2 Read More…
7th Annual Four Wheel Campers Customer Rally & Campout: Anza Borrego
Article from Expedition Portal: Something special happens when a community of overland travelers get together. A sense of adventure and camaraderie, an appreciation for one another’s pursuit of wanderlust and all the unique ways people go about it. Earlier this month, the Southern California Four Wheel Campers owners group came together at Ocotillo Wells in the Anza Borrego State Park. There were over 40 Four Wheel Campers mounted on the back of an impressive variety of vehicles, brought together with young families, retired couples, and solo vagabonds. It was a mix of full-time travelers, those with a relaxed, extended schedule, or people stealing away from their day-to-day for a weekend of exploration. The only agenda was to relax, eat, connect Read More…
Sumner’s Custom 2012 Toyota Tacoma Overland Rig is the Ultimate Adventure Truck
Article from Savage Camper: This awesome, custom 2012 Overland Toyota Tacoma rig, topped with a custom Four Wheel Camper, was built, and is owned by Wade and Michelle Sumner of Sacramento, who came up with the vision for their Tacoma, and performed much of the outstanding customization work. At first Wade mentioned they were a bit hesitant to tackle the project themselves, but “after committing to drilling a 5” hole in the fender for the snorkel, I knew we were pretty much good to go from that point on.” The results speak for themselves, as the custom fabrication, assembly and finish work on this overland Toyota Tacoma truck/Four Wheel Camper combo is … Read the full article & watch video Read More…
Live Free With Kid and Gypsy (Hawk Flat bed in South America)
Article by Truck Camper Adventure: Interested in living full-time in a truck camper and exploring North, Central, and South America? Michel and Sabina Robitaille of Ontario, Canada are making that popular dream a reality. After planning this trip for a year and a half, the two military retirees bought a truck and camper in 2016, sold their home and all of their possessions, and left Canada to live a nomadic lifestyle on the road. Since then, the two adventurers have explored Alaska, British Columbia, the Western United States, Mexico, and most of Central America. What’s great about their approach to full-time living and travel is that they have no time limit—they’re able to spend as much time as they want Read More…
