  • RECAP: Earth Week Volunteer Event with the Mojave Desert Land Trust

    RECAP: Earth Week Volunteer Event with the Mojave Desert Land Trust

    Last month Four Wheel Campers (FWC) and Truma North America teamed up with the Mojave Desert Land Trust (MDLT) for an Earth Week volunteer event, and from bird walks to habitat restoration projects, attendees spent three days immersing themselves in nature.  MDLT is a 501c3 nonprofit based in Joshua Tree, California, and their mission is to help preserve and protect the Mojave and Colorado Deserts. Since 2006, MDLT has conveyed more tracts of land to the National Park system than any other non-profit in the country, and in addition to numerous ongoing restoration projects, they offer programs and events to help educate and involve the community in desert conservation initiatives.  The event was held near Victorville, California at Palisades Ranch, Read More…

  • Four Wheel Campers Hosts Third Annual Volunteer Event in Southern Arizona

    Four Wheel Campers Hosts Third Annual Volunteer Event in Southern Arizona

    In March 2024, Four Wheel Campers returned to the Sonoran Desert for our third annual volunteer event with Friends of Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge (Friends of BANWR). Located in Southern Arizona along the U.S.-Mexico border, the 118,000-acre Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge was established in the 1980s by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to provide critical habitat for the endangered masked bobwhite quail. In addition to a wealth of desert fauna, including pronghorn, deer, javelina, coyotes and bobcats, the refuge has over 80 dispersed campsites, making it a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Four Wheel Campers worked with Friends of BANWR in 2022 and 2023 on several habitat restoration initiatives, and this year we completed an erosion control Read More…

  • Downsizing from a Fifth Wheel to a Truck Camper

    Downsizing from a Fifth Wheel to a Truck Camper

    by Rene Agredano “RVers are supposed to go up in size, not down!” our friends told us when we announced our decision to downsize from a fifth-wheel to a pop-up truck camper. But after 16 years of full-time RVing in a trailer, this radical change was a long time coming. Trading a fifth-wheel for a pop-up truck camper is allowing us to dive even deeper into the RV camping lifestyle we love so much. Today we enjoy a greater sense of ease on the road, and at a much lower cost of ownership. We think this decision is proving to be one of our best moves yet, and here’s why. Five years ago if you told us we would be Read More…

  • RECAP: Four Wheel Campers & Clean Up The Lake’s Volunteer Event at Fallen Leaf Lake

    RECAP: Four Wheel Campers & Clean Up The Lake’s Volunteer Event at Fallen Leaf Lake

    Four Wheel Campers’ partnership with Clean Up The Lake began in 2022, and we are pleased to share the details of our latest event with the Lake Tahoe-based 501(c)(3). Not only did our volunteers collect and sort hundreds of pounds of debris and litter at Fallen Leaf Lake, but we got a tour of Clean Up The Lake’s research truck, which is outfitted with a Project M camper. Four Wheel Campers donated the camper to Clean Up The Lake in late 2022, and it has helped the nonprofit on cleanups and pilot missions across California and Nevada.  “Four Wheel Campers and our customers appreciated the opportunity to assist the Clean Up the Lake team in their ongoing effort to restore Read More…

  • Adventures with a Ford Lightning & Truck Camper

    Adventures with a Ford Lightning & Truck Camper

    Mario Marez Growing up in the 70s and 80s my fondest memories were taking family camping trips in my father’s 3/4 ton truck and a medium size camper. Fast forward decades, my parents and I were each temporarily displaced from our homes during the 2021 Caldera fire in Pollock Pines and South Lake Tahoe. We both knew what it was like to be temporarily homeless and knew the fear of possibly never coming back to our homes. That experience led both of us to have discussions about purchasing a trailer or camper together for fun and as an emergency use if evacuating would ever be necessary again in the future, or worse.  In 2022 I purchased an F-150 Lightning extended-range battery Read More…

  • Four Wheel Truck Campers & Turtleback Trailer A Dynamic Duo

    Four Wheel Truck Campers & Turtleback Trailer A Dynamic Duo

    By Gary Matos My wife once told me that there is nothing wrong with owning two motorcycles—as long as they serve different functions. That led to the purchase of a KLR650 in addition to my dirt bike. I promptly pocketed this axiom of wisdom for the future. Eventually, I decided to see if would apply to trailers. Background Most of our travel is done in our truck camper—a RAM 3500 6.7L Cummins diesel equipped with a Norweld Aluminum Tray and a Four Wheel Camper (FWC) Hawk Flatbed. It is our custom home-on-wheels and is equipped to take use of just about anywhere we want to go. The under bed and dinette seat storage in the flatbed camper are game changers. Even Read More…
