  • Too Far Gone – The Adventure Portal

    Too Far Gone – The Adventure Portal

    A photo essay by Adventure Photographer, Andy Best It’s three o’clock in the morning. My pillow is frozen to the side of the camper. Moonlight pours through the vent above the bed, spilling across the blankets half covering a shivering little body. Slow puffs of frozen breath stretch like small clouds above our heads. “Damn it, the propane is out…”, I think to myself. A slow rumbling sound turns to slow heaves from the floor below. Our pup Sequoia is obviously sick and is about to explode. In two moves I blast out of bed and practically cartwheel across our small table and on top of the dog. I moved shoes and her bed just in time for her to 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…

    Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks – Truck Camper Magazine

    “Dad, what’s this?” My daughter, Lilly, questioned. “It’s our home for the next week or so.” I replied. Lilly, her friend Eva, and I stood in front of Four Wheel Camper’s (FWC) headquarters in Woodland, California. Not only were we standing but staring, maybe even gawking, at the beautiful truck and camper combination that we would experience for the next nine days. We couldn’t wait! My family spends countless days exploring the western United States, always searching for adventures along the way. For camping, we have used numerous ground tents and a few roof top tents. At times, we even camped outside on cots. However, never had we experienced a camper with all the “at home goodies” mounted on a Read More…

  • 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…

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

    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…

  • 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…

    Woodland, California-based Four Wheel Campers, the leading manufacturer of lightweight, aluminum pop-up truck campers, is complementing its extensive pop-up truck camper lineup with a yet-to-be-named (“Project M” is the placeholder name) truck camper product that uniquely blurs the truck camper/roof-top tent space. The designed weight of this new truck topper is only 400 pounds for a mid-size truck with a 5-foot bed. “We are really excited about the release of this camper,” said Robert Vogl, Owner and CEO of Four Wheel Campers. “We’ve been working on it for about a year. This camper looks like a standard Four Wheel Camper yet allows the owner to use the truck bed for work or to load it up with toys and gear. What Read More…

    One Of The Best Ways To Spend A Three-Day Weekend – Forbes

    There are two types of people in this world: those who love camping and the rest of the world who’d much rather book a room in a hotel. The aspects of camping — the constant fresh air, views and being immersed in nature coupled with a refreshing disconnect from social media or work emails — aren’t enough for some to overlook the whole sleeping on the ground thing. And, being immersed in nature also means you’re at the mercy of it too. Some days it’ll rain and, depending on where you pitch your tent, nighttime temperatures can get dangerously cold. For those who prefer a warm bed, four solid walls and climate control, there’s is a middle ground you might Read More…
