Sir William Tackles Death Valley in a FWC Hawk – Truck Camper Adventure
While on my first journey across America along the Trans America Trail I became fascinated with the idea of finding or building the ultimate overland rig. In my mind, I have played out all sorts of different scenarios from the traditional Truck or SUV with a roof-top tent, to a Sportsmobile off-road van and even the more elaborate full on expedition setups like an EarthRoamer. In my mind, the perfect overland rig meant that it had to be capable of going off-road, provide a safe and secure place for my wife and I to sleep and be away from the elements, and set up/take down must be fast and easy in an effort to avoid added aggravation while on the trail. My current setup, a 2015 4Runner with custom sleeping setup, fridge, and chuck box style kitchen, provides all of this in a very compact design, but leaves my wife and I both craving more space.
