Four Wheel Camper Owners Win Overland Expo ‘Cool Ride’ Contest – Truck Camper Adventure
Mary Ashley Krough and Owen Chikazawa were awarded top honors in last week’s 2019 Overland Expo West “Cool Ride” Photo Contest. The winning photo, taken by Owen, features a 2018 Four Wheel Camper Flatbed Hawk and is the first Overland Expo “Cool Ride” winner to feature a slide-in truck camper. “We like the picture because the camper looks like a Mars Rover,” Mary said.
Built by Main Line Overland, the winning rig is clearly worthy of top honors. The rig consists of a 2019 Toyota Tundra powered by a 5.7L iForce V8, a 6.5-foot custom aluminum Norweld service tray, and a fully-equipped 2019 Four Wheel Camper Flatbed Hawk. The truck was extensively modified with a Dobinsons 2-inch suspension lift kit with a Dobinsons rear leaf pack, an ARB rear locker, Firestone air bags, a Stealth Fighter Winch Bumper with a Comeup Winch, a Baja Designs lightbar, and a Safari snorkel. Fully self-sufficient, the charcoal metallic Four Wheel Camper is equipped with a 65L Isotherm compressor refrigerator and is powered by an Overland Solar 320 watt solar power system and a BattleBorn 200 amp hour lithium battery bank. The painted tray includes several upgrades including extra storage compartments, an extra 11-gallon gray water holding tank, and an ARB air compressor.
As for the winning photo, the picture was taken in California near the Salton Sea and Anza Borrego. “We had just got there. The sun was just going down and it was super windy, which is why the camper’s top was down,” Mary explained. The photograph was taken by Owen using a prime Nikon lens on a Sony A7R. The ISO setting was set for 100 and the focal length was 85.
