News: Thompson/Center Ram Compass Project

Thompson/Center and Smith & Wesson have assembled a Ram truck project, the vehicle to be awarded to a new Compass bolt-action rifle customer (you can also enter to win without purchase HERE). There are a few things that make this newsworthy, particularly the growing trend within the firearms industry to showcase 4WD and overland project vehicles, but also the general acknowledgement by the industry that aftermarket accessories and quality camping gear can better support the hunter and sportsman in the… read more »

Conqueror Off Road Campers Now Available in North America

In the last few years the North American trailer market has exploded. A dozen new manufacturers have entered the fray and existing brands are expanding their offerings with each successive season.

The latest entry in the North American trailer market is no upstart or hobby business housed in someone’s garage. For over 25 years, Conqueror Off Road Campers has provided overlanders… read more »
