    StoryTeller Overland GXV Hilt

    I've been doing some thinking since first falling in love with this type of vehicle and I've now decided that they are not for me but I'm curious about how people who have this or an Earthroamer for example use them? The big box on a large truck combo makes the vehicle too big to go on lots of...

    MOAB 4x4 adventure truck by Recreational Specialties?

    I saw a post on Instragram by Acela around the debut of this truck at Overland expo east. Full specs here. Has anyone ever heard about this company?

    Be careful where you drive your Earthroamer's...

    The EC, especially the EX with its smaller form factor is definitely a capable machine here in the PNW where it's built and tested. Sure it's not a modded Jeep but no RV is. There are many videos online of these rigs going places. The ER is a different machine that is IMO too large and too...

    lifting beds?

    Yes to both. I'm sure GXV can also have those if asked.

    RexRover... another 1/2 ton based big luxury overland camper rig (F150) for $350k

    From the same folks who make the $1M truck. Twice the price of a Tiger for a less capable truck. Curious to see if it will sell. On a slightly off topic tangent, it appears expedition trucks and RVs in general are quite a bit less expensive across the pond in Europe vs here in North America...

    Wilderness Vans - GRID chassis cab

    A Fuso based EXP was $275 pre-pandemic, now they go for quite a bit more on the used market. But the same goes for any vehicle. I sold my 6 years old Airstream trailer during the pandemic for what I paid new and sold my 7 years old truck for not much less. Prices are starting to go down, curious...

    Wilderness Vans - GRID chassis cab

    I was mindlessly browsing instagram and saw a post from Wilderness Vans. Their GRID truck looks interesting. Truck chassis, heated garage, lithium power. No listed price but there is a for sale post for one of their trucks with a listing of $280k USD. I think the price is about right for this...

    Winnebago EKKO

    +1 to everything said above. I do prefer the Aeonrv floor plan though, mostly for the dinette arrangement vs the 2 seats of the Ekko but that's just a personnal preference. Regarding the dually question, the truth is probably 99% of the driving in an Ekko/Aeon will be done on pavement or graded...

    Winnebago EKKO

    I also own a Revel and I'm on the Ekko facebook group. The general consensus is that the Ekko is good at doing its thing but also keep in mind that there are a lot of first time rv owners in that group. Anything specific you are looking for? I would have definitely consider one if not for...

    New kid on the block! AWD Transit with composite camper AEONrv

    I agree the entry way/shower combo is not for everyone but I think it works great in a vehicle of that size. I'm trying to avoid comparing it with the EC since they are 2.5x the price of the AeonRV and a different beast. I somewhat regret not buying one 5 years ago when they were about...

    New kid on the block! AWD Transit with composite camper AEONrv

    I just saw one in person at the Revel van rally in Moab over the weekend. It is quite impressive in person and the garage is roomier than I expected. Winnebago was on site but unfortunately the Ekko they were supposed to bring was being used by a rep so I couldn't compare both back to back but...

    Interesting build

    Saw this on youtube. Simple and cheap Fuso based conversion. Not for everyone for sure but it works.
