  • FWC Owner Survives 300-Ft Mountain Rollover and Fall

    FWC Owner Survives 300-Ft Mountain Rollover and Fall

    Fifty-two-year-old Marine veteran Sean Silvera was stoked when he completed work on his truck camper build in January. He purchased the best suspension upgrades for his Ram 2500 that money could buy, installed an imported aluminum tray outfitted with all the bells and whistles, and topped it all off with a brand-new Four Wheel Camper (FWC) Flatbed Hawk. In all, Sean spent $175,000 on the rig, but the results were worth it. “It was a one-of-a-kind truck,” Sean said. “It was a Ram AEV Prospector XL, so it was on 40’s. It was their full build. I put one of the first PCOR4x4 off-road trays on it from Australia. I put a Hawk Ute flatbed camper on it and really built that out for off-grid Read More…

    A west coast Adventure – The Adventure Portal

    What happens when two very active people meet, fall in love, get married and make the choice to leave traditional home-based life behind to live on the road? They build an adventure rig that reflects their very active and dare I say it, ‘adventurous’ lifestyle. We purchased a 2018 Tundra (used), removed the bed and bolted a Norweld aluminum flatbed tray in its place as our solid foundation. The tray resembles a supersized swiss army knife. Next we added a 2.5-inch Dobinson’s lift and propped it up on 35’s, Firestone airbags and threw an ARB cow-catcher (think Mexico/Baja rock climbing/surf trips) on the front as our bumper. What do you put on this badass platform that would be capable of withstanding all the abuse we would Read More…

    Pete Stajduhar is a Connecticut native and electrical contractor by trade. He specializes in power systems for places like hospitals, marinas, and remote island. This is to say the Stajduhar thrives on engineering challenges and appreciates integrated systems that work together flawlessly. In order to find out how he came to build and explore in the custom AEV Prospector XL Tray Bed with Woolrich Edition Hawk Flatbed Four Wheel Camper (FWC) we need to step back in time about seven years.

    Adventure in the Four Wheel Camper AEV RAM 3500 HD Rig: Off Road Escape from a Storm – Savage Camper

    The window of opportunity opened last minute to finally take one of the Four Wheel Camper owned rigs out. Luckily, their behemoth AEV Prospector RAM 3500 HD truck outfitted with a black Hawk model camper became available. If you’re into truck camper setups, this is definitely a top notch combo pairing of a truck with a Four Wheel Camper. This Cummins powered rig is often present at big events they attend like Overland Expo. With it’s prominent RAM tailored AEV snorkel, 3” AEV suspension lift, big 37” tires and shiny black Hawk camper on the rear, you definitely get double-takes driving down the road. As most already know, Four Wheel Campers are known for being rugged on the trail (hence Read More…

    The Ultimate Overlander? – OutdoorX4

    “What’s this?” “Sorry. What?” I replied. Startled, I turned to witness an unknown woman approaching, talking, and pointing to the camper. “Oh, it’s a Four Wheel Camper,” I stated. Curiosity and questions became the norm while traveling through California and Nevada in a Four Wheel Camper AEV Prospector Ram Truck with a Hawk Camber mounted in the bed. I was on a mission to adventure in some beautiful, quiet places in California and Nevada, experiencing a pop-up truck camper. Before departing on this grand adventure, Robert Vogl, Four Wheel Campers CEO, provided a guided tour of their headquarters. He escorted me around and described how raw aluminum becomes a complete, highly engineered off-road camper. Vogl informed me that it takes Read More…

  • Returning to our Roots – Overland Journal

    Returning to our Roots – Overland Journal

    Sweaty palms. Blood flowing quickly through our veins. Butterflies blooming in our bellies. We were Yosemite bound. The thought of being suspended thousands of feet over the valley floor, balancing on webbing no thicker than a thumb, began to consume our minds with each passing mile. Since departing sea level, we’d been eastbound for the high desert, redwood forests, and everything in between. We’d set out to put the new rig, our Toyota Tacoma Xtra Cab Limited Edition Four Wheel Camper, to the test on a classic California overlanding expedition. After each of us spent four years living full-time on the road (Travis in his 1994 Dodge Ram van and me in my 1983 VW Westfalia), we paused our travel-centric Read More…

    The Raven houses nearly all of the amenities of home: aking-size slide-out bed, running water, a stove, a fridge, a small rollover sofa and, much to our glee, a heater.  Read the full article on outdoor4x.com

    Chile in a Four Wheel Camper – outdoor4x

    Chile’s Patagonia region is a haven for exploration particularly with the amenities provided by a Four Wheel Camper As one of the thousands of loyal and satisfied owners of a California-manufactured Four Wheel Camper, I was immediately intrigued when I learned in 2019 that an affiliated small company, Four Wheel Camper Patagonia, had recently shipped two smaller-sized Four Wheel Campers to Chile’s northern Patagonia region of Aysen for rental. I had visited the area in 2012 and relied on local accommodations and tent camping and from that experience, I recognized the flexibility (and comfort) a small, lightweight but well-equipped slide-in camper on a robust diesel 4WD pickup would bring. I knew I wanted to go back and given access to these Four Read More…

    The Russos Switch from Van Life to Truck Camper Life – Truck Camper Adventure

    Back in 2015, Joe and Kait Russo sold their home, quit their jobs, bought an RV and left the safety and comfort of home for a new beginning—life on the road. What started as a one-year vacation and a chance to do some traveling turned into an adventure with no end date, new careers, and a new understanding of what it means to truly live the life you want. During their first few months on the road, Joe and Kait began posting blogs to update friends and family about their travel. That led to posting videos on YouTube and slowly, they found that they were reaching far beyond their network of loved ones. They also realized this new reach could Read More…

  • A weekend at home during an atypical environment in Moab – outdoorx4

    A weekend at home during an atypical environment in Moab – outdoorx4

    Complaining about being stuck at home in Moab due to Utah’s “stay-at-home” order is akin to whining about only winning the regular lottery, not the Powerball. When spring rolls around, our weekends are typically spent anywhere but home. Given the current atypical environment, we’ve found ourselves venturing out into the eerily quiet desert landscape around Moab to camp, ride and hike. It’s given us a chance to rediscover why we moved here over fourteen years ago. Moab’s tourist season, referred to by Moabites as “no-left-turn-season”, runs from roughly the middle of February to the end of November. Campgrounds, restaurants, grocery stores, trails, the river, even the tire shop, are jam packed every weekend and more often than not, during the Read More…
