  • Exploring and testing Four Wheel Campers’ Ram 3500 truck

    Exploring and testing Four Wheel Campers’ Ram 3500 truck

    “What is this?” “Wow!” “Are you serious?” “This is unbelievable!” Those were just a few of the questions and comments I received when I test drove Four Wheel Campers (FWC) new vehicle/camper build. Over a four-week period, I tested the vehicle/camper in the wilds of Montana and Wyoming (view recent web article: Western Ramble on the OutdoorX4 website HERE). Simply put, it performed exceptionally. As I conversed on the phone with Dan Welty, FWC’s Vice President, he informed me that FWC intentionally built this vehicle/camper combination to accommodate and highlight long term travel and adventure. Sounds like a recipe for van life, right? Well, the combination of a diesel-powered truck, a flatbed, and pop-top camper created much more than a Read More…

  • Adventuring out west with a Four Wheel Camper Hawk Flatbed Camper

    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. The Hawk Flatbed Camper, mounted to a Norweld aluminum tray, and sitting on a 2021 Ram 3500 made this the ultimate Yellowstone attraction. Ha! It creates the ultimate adventure vehicle. “Hello.” “What’s this?” A tourist asked. “It’s a Four Wheel Camper.” I replied. “A what?” Another tourist remarked. Much of the exchanges followed that pattern as my family and I adventured for a few weeks in the states of Wyoming and Montana. And lucky Read More…

  • A Trip to Remember – 6 Weeks in a Four Wheel Camper Flatbed Hawk – Truck Camper Adventure

    A Trip to Remember – 6 Weeks in a Four Wheel Camper Flatbed Hawk – Truck Camper Adventure

    Six weeks of dirt, dust and dog food has been cleaned from our camper. We brought home enough of the Southwest, Midwest and Utah to amend a garden. It was a very successful and memorable trip. We saw some incredible sights and were able to connect with family and friends, while comfortably traveling in our new Four Wheel Camper Hawk Flatbed. We even learned a few things about our camper that made us very pleased with our decision to build out a flatbed. But first, let’s wind the clock back. For six years, my wife Gretchen and I enjoyed our beloved Toyota Tacoma equipped with a Four Wheel Camper Fleet. It was nimble and reliable and provided cooking and sleeping comfort Read More…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…
