  • 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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

EXCITING NEWS — WE HAVE MOVED OUR FACTORY!

 

We are now completely moved into our new factory. Our new factory & camper showroom address is . . . Four Wheel Campers, 1400 Churchill Downs Avenue, Suite A, Woodland, CA 95776. We invite you to come see our new digs!

Unfortunately this has resulted in historically long lead times. We encourage you to connect with your nearest dealer so that you can discover what their order schedule looks like, and when possibly to place your new camper order to meet your 2022 trip needs.

 

Here’s to your future trips and adventures, and thank you for considering us to ride along with you!
