  • Ice Fishing With A Truck Camper – Truck Camper Magazine

    Ice Fishing With A Truck Camper – Truck Camper Magazine

    In the deep cold of Minnesota winter, Ken Barry takes his Four Wheel Camper to frozen lakes and goes ice fishing.  How he stays warm and comfortable is an important lesson for anyone interested in extreme winter camping. As snowbirds who drive south the moment we smell cold, the mere idea of driving onto a frozen lake to ice fish sends chills through us big enough to set off distant seismographs. Of course, we weren’t always so thin-skinned.  Just a few years ago we lived in Pennsylvania, and we were quite accustomed to the annual wintery onslaught.  What’s that weatherman?  Snowmageddon?  Snowpocalypse?  Snow-my-goodness?  Snow-what!  Bring it. The lesson here is simple.  Be very careful with snowbirding.  Once you fly south Read More…

    The Ultimate Overland Vehicle – A Power Wagon Owner’s Perspective – The Adventure Portal

    2018 Power Wagon & Four Wheel Camper – Hawk Model Bob Wohlers, Owner/Instructor Off-Road Safety Academy and Author of Off-Road & Overland Adventure Infobooks Why did you choose your rig platform and how long have you had it? I purchased both my Ram Power Wagon and Four Wheel Camper (FWC) in early 2018 brand new (I don’t buy used vehicles anymore). The primary reason I selected this vehicle and camper combo would be a surprise to most, and my reason is not common among those that purchase such a setup. I bought this vehicle combo because I personally did not own a 4WD vehicle in this category – long wheelbase 3/4 ton 4WD truck with an enclosed and comfortable habitation camper. I know what you are thinking, “Say Read More…

  • The Rig that is always ready – The Adventure Portal

    The Rig that is always ready – The Adventure Portal

    I grew up dreaming of dusty Baja roads, endless uncrowded beaches, fish tacos, hand pressed tortillas, and night skies filled with fireworks. I think I watched a few too many surf movies in the 80’s and 90’s but self contained traveling has always been something that has intrigued me. Fast forward 30 years and I find myself owning the perfect rig that can accomplish everything I dreamed of and more. Allow me to introduce the Four Wheel Camper, Pop-up Camper, known as the Project M. A quick back story, Kelly is my beautiful wife, and we’ve been married for over 30 years. I was fortunate enough to marry my high school sweetheart. We now have six children, and three grandchildren. When Read More…

  • What It’s Like Overlanding Baja In A Truck Camper (The Wayward Home)

    What It’s Like Overlanding Baja In A Truck Camper (The Wayward Home)

    You may have seen him on the big screen acting opposite Tom Cruise in War of the Worlds, or on television on the show Shameless. But in his off-time, Justin Chatwin prefers camping and dirt biking to the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles. Chatwin did extensive camping in a pickup truck camper shell before deciding he wanted something a little more comfortable for his backroads adventures. “I wanted a fridge. I got tired of getting ice every day or two. I wanted water, a comfier bed,” said Chatwin. “So, on day I was scrolling Instagram and saw Bound for Nowhere’s truck camper by Four Wheel Campers, and it looked so cool, I just become obsessed.” He couldn’t stop looking at truck campers online and on the road, so decided Read More…

  • Review of the Four Wheel Camper Project M Truck Topper (Truck Camper Adventure)

    Review of the Four Wheel Camper Project M Truck Topper (Truck Camper Adventure)

    As a former Marine I take a lot of pride in getting by with the bare necessities. We’re known for a lot of things in the Marine Corps, but having an abundance of gear is not one of them. So when I began to consider the options for an overland setup for my 2017 Tacoma TRD Off Road, I was able to talk myself out of just about every option on the market. I had a ground tent and a nice camp mattress, what else did I need? Yet my mind wandered… I couldn’t help myself. I spent more time than I’d care to admit on Instagram mindlessly swiping through images of low profile camper setups from GoFast Campers, AT Read More…

  • Truck Camper Or Off-road Van? An Adventure Chef’s Top Pick (The Wayward Home)

    Truck Camper Or Off-road Van? An Adventure Chef’s Top Pick (The Wayward Home)

    Truck camper with a view. Photo: Instagram.com/chefadamglick/ Adam Glick is no stranger to the nomadic lifestyle. As a professional chef aboard yachts ranging from 90 to 225 feet, he always had a campervan at the ready in the marina parking lot. In the beginning, back in 2008, Adam lived in a beat-up old van with no windows. He calls himself one of the original “van lifers”, long before it was something cool to show off on Instagram. “This all started because when I wasn’t working on a boat I found myself homeless and got a van out of necessity,” he said. “I would finish a job and all my possessions were in storage. I didn’t keep a house.” When Adam started Read More…

  • Will Work For Spontaneous Shenanigans (Truck Camper Magazine)

    Will Work For Spontaneous Shenanigans (Truck Camper Magazine)

    Full-time truck campers, Jessica O’Bryan and Charles Rollins, work hard, make sacrifices, and then surf, climb and explore their bliss – all from their flatbed Four Wheel Camper.  Why wake up in the same place every day? The concept of sacrifice as the path towards achieving one’s goals isn’t anything new.  Most of us have all sacrificed our time and freedom of location to make money, or to reach our long-term career objectives.  Why else would we drive to the same building, year after year and work for 40 or 50-hours a week?  For that considerable sacrifice, we support ourselves and our families and can have what we need, and hopefully more. However, sacrifice does not mean the same thing Read More…

    The Parashant National Monument: Ride to the Rim (The Adventure Portal)

    Over the years somehow we seem to have missed the Parashant National Monument, so I was stoked to be asked to join a recent Four Wheel Campers Owners Tour through this area. The tour was lead by our good friend Bob Wohlers, owner of Off-Road Safety Academy, who has years of experience in this region. We were in good hands. The plan was to head south and camp at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and then east to visit Nampaweap up in the Mount Trumbull Wilderness area. DAY 1: Ride To The Rim The day started at 7.30 am in the Denny’s parking lot in St George with a safety briefing, general instruction and introductions. The tour group Read More…

  • Hawk UTE Flatbed: Finding the perfect rig (The Adventure Portal)

    Hawk UTE Flatbed: Finding the perfect rig (The Adventure Portal)

    For better or worse, I’ve gotten soft. I turned 50 last year and though I still ride my mountain bike like a 20 year old, albeit one with a gut and less hair, I’ve come to appreciate that enjoying the great outdoors doesn’t have to involve some level of suffering. As a young backpacker I tossed an emergency blanket on the ground, on top of which went my sleeping bag with nothing else between me and nature. I eventually graduated to a sleeping pad, inside a tent. Ten years later, at 30, I bought a Tacoma, installed a shell on the bed and built a plywood platform with gear storage below and an egg crate mattress topper on top. Oh, Read More…

  • Justin Chatwin: The Balance of Acting and Adventure (Truck Camper)

    Justin Chatwin: The Balance of Acting and Adventure (Truck Camper)

    When Justin Chatwin isn’t on set, you may find him on a remote Baja beach, or in a small village in South America.  On camera or in his Four Wheel Camper, he finds purpose, play, and peace between his two extraordinary worlds. The proverb, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” dates back to 1659 and still resonates, but the next line is equally important; “All play and no work makes Jack a mere toy.” No matter our station in life, we need a healthy balance between work and play to remain centered and happy.  Without this equilibrium, we are often anxious and unsettled.  The proverb remains true, 362 years later. Reading 38-year old Justin Chatwin’s extensive resume, it would Read More…

  • Too Far Gone – The Adventure Portal

    Too Far Gone – The Adventure Portal

    A photo essay by Adventure Photographer, Andy Best It’s three o’clock in the morning. My pillow is frozen to the side of the camper. Moonlight pours through the vent above the bed, spilling across the blankets half covering a shivering little body. Slow puffs of frozen breath stretch like small clouds above our heads. “Damn it, the propane is out…”, I think to myself. A slow rumbling sound turns to slow heaves from the floor below. Our pup Sequoia is obviously sick and is about to explode. In two moves I blast out of bed and practically cartwheel across our small table and on top of the dog. I moved shoes and her bed just in time for her to Read More…

  • One Week In A Four Wheel Pop Up Camper – Bucket Magazine

    One Week In A Four Wheel Pop Up Camper – Bucket Magazine

    The  open road. Nothing compares to that feeling of freedom when the windows are down and there is only open road in front of you. I love plotting out my route: finding the best parks to hit up, places to camp, obscure historical spots to visit, and a few hot springs to soak in. Usually, a road trip with me requires packing the car with all of the camping gear: tent, sleeping bags, cooking gear, sleeping pad, cooler, etc.—the whole shebang. So if  I’ve left enough room for the passengers I’ve done a good job. Even with all of the work that goes into a camping road trip, I’d never considered RV camping. I really enjoy pitching my tent, and the Read More…
