  • 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…

  • Instagram Star Shares Uplifting Message While Traveling in Four Wheel Truck Camper

    Instagram Star Shares Uplifting Message While Traveling in Four Wheel Truck Camper

    By Kristin Hanes If you watch Scott Tatum on Instagram and TikTok, you’ll be struck by his message. He’s open, honest and REAL: staring right into your eyes as he gives you his daily “friendly reminder,” which encourages you to know your worth, live your best life, and take care of yourself. They sound a little like this: • “You are the CEO of your own life and accountable for everything that goes with that. So hire, fire and promote accordingly.” • “Great things take time. I’m talking about you, you’re the great thing. Know your worth.” Visit Scott’s Instagram @ucanoutdoors to see videos. Scott didn’t plan or expect to be a social media celebrity when he started out as Read More…

  • Experiencing the Unknown Overland from Europe to Australia

    Experiencing the Unknown Overland from Europe to Australia

    “Shipping?” was the comment of my wife Ute when I told her to ship our camper to Australia. “We gonna drive there!” The project was born. After some deep analysis of the possible routing, whether via China or via India, we found out that some South-EastAsian countries do not allow to enter with your own vehicle. So, we decided to book an organized group tour with the agency “Abenteuer Touren”. The advantage of using this agency is that they organize all the visa, road permits, camp sites etc. Also, they provide a vast sightseeing program. However, you can drive freely and not in a convoy. It took us about six months to prepare our Toyota Hilux and our Four Wheel Read More…

  • Four Wheel Campers Returns to Volunteer at Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge

    Four Wheel Campers Returns to Volunteer at Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge

    After a successful volunteer event in 2022, Four Wheel Campers returned to Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge (BANWR) last month for two days of volunteering and camping. Located an hour south of Tucson, Arizona in the Sonoran Desert, BANWR is cherished among wildlife watchers. The 118,000-acre refuge also has over 80 dispersed campsites, many of which offer mesmerizing views of the Baboquivari Mountains. Friends of BANWR is a local nonprofit 501c3 that supports the refuge, which was established in the 1980s to provide critical habitat for the endangered masked bobwhite quail. In addition to hundreds of avian species, the refuge is also home to mule deer, pronghorn, javelina, coyotes and mountain lions. Four Wheel Campers previously worked with Friends of Read More…

  • Mountain Biker Can’t Get Enough of His Four Wheel Pop Up Camper – The Wayward Home

    Mountain Biker Can’t Get Enough of His Four Wheel Pop Up Camper – The Wayward Home

    For someone who loves getting deep into the great outdoors and going mountain biking, there isn’t anything better than a Four Wheel pop-up camper. Sure, a campervan is also great, but these lumbering giants aren’t as nimble as a truck camper, which can tackle even rough dirt roads and snow. Those are just a couple of reasons why Cole Gregg chose a pop-up truck camper for his passion and his work: mountain biking. Not only does Cole ride for fun any chance he gets, but he also works as a technical editor for a company dedicated to mountain biking reviews and information Cole Started in an Aluminum Camper Shell Cole is no stranger to truck campers; he’s had a 2005 Read More…

  • Romantic Baja Adventure

    Romantic Baja Adventure

    The road to Baja is a nostalgic one. You are out there, truly out there – not a cell tower in sight. It’s raw, it’s rugged and not for the faint of heart. There are miles and miles of unpredictability. You can get stuck out there for days until you are lucky enough to find ‘local’ help. It’s one of the few places on earth where you can truly go camping. And what is wild is finding others doing the same adventure as you. The unpredictability of the weather makes you appreciate those glassy warm mornings. The moody desert changes in an instant- rain and harsh unrelenting winds come with no warning. Nobody has the same story. “How was the Read More…

  • Dirt Road Dreams By Bret Edge

    Dirt Road Dreams By Bret Edge

    Dirt roads offer mystery and adventure, and while sometimes they’re dead ends, sometimes they lead to epic campsites and amazing trails. For many road-trippers—myself included—a random dirt road holds an undeniable allure. Where does it lead? What will I discover along the way? From sandy, arrow-straight tracks disappearing into barren deserts, to rocky roads climbing high into mountains, dirt roads practically beg to be explored. They promise (mis)adventure and freedom, campsites with jawdropping views, and beautiful solitude. If you’re lucky, the bars on your cell phone disappear with the miles in your rearview mirror. Devoid of technology, we pick up books and read them, play card games with family, or simply lie on the ground beneath a blanket of stars, Read More…

  • Tackling Dinosaur NM’s Echo Park by Truck Camper

    Tackling Dinosaur NM’s Echo Park by Truck Camper

    A rough map of Dinosaur National Monument’s Echo Park doesn’t look like much but don’t let that fool you. Start by drawing several zig-zags that extend into a long tail that opens up into a horseshoe. At about three quarters of the length, add a few small squares on either side of the tail followed by a bird wing and cone. Finally, draw a meandering line that closely follows the radius of the horseshoe and continues on. The result is a rough map that reflects the less than smooth entrance to Echo Park but begs for exploration.   When traveling in our Four Wheel Camper Flatbed Hawk, Gretchen and I rarely stay in one location more than a day. That Read More…

  • 7 Days Solo With Four Wheel Campers: From Point Reyes To Lake Tahoe

    7 Days Solo With Four Wheel Campers: From Point Reyes To Lake Tahoe

     Parked Without A Plan  I arrived in Sacramento for a 7-day solo trip in one of Four Wheel Campers’ model rigs with nothing but a scarce idea of a handful of places I hoped to see. I wasn’t exactly surprised to suddenly find myself somewhat frozen after the logistics were taken care of.  I sat in the parking lot of Food 4 Less on the outskirts of the city, staring at Google Maps on my phone and listening to the gentle roar of the diesel truck.   I’d be driving for the next seven days. I had made my cross-country flight. I had picked up the rig. I had secured provisions to get me through the week.  Now what…?  When In Read More…
