How to Buy a Rooftop Tent

I’m sure you’ve noticed, but you can’t swing a dead cat these days without hitting a roof top tent. There are now dozens of purveyors of car-top sleepers with some auto dealers even selling them as add-on upgrades. If you don’t have one yet, statistically, I’d say you will soon enough. For those inclined to…

Featured Vehicle: FOTORNR

Over the last few years, the 5th-generation 4Runner has become one of the most popular four-wheel drives in the overland segment, and it’s not hard to understand why.

Old Friends and a Dutch Safari

We were out of time. We had been in Holland for 2 weeks inspecting and rejecting Defender after Defender.

For most people, the end of October and beginning of November is simply a season called fall, but for those of us in the automotive world, it’s something entirely different. It’s that time of year when tens of thousands of enthusiasts and manufacturers descend upon the Las Vegas Convention Center to see the latest and…

The Road Less Traveled: Unique Vehicles of Overland Expo East

William Cowper once said that “Variety’s the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavor,” and after attending seven Overland Expos I’d have to agree. You see, while the attendees’ experiences can change year to year with new classes and instructors, those of us working the booths wind up seeing the same things…

Off-Road Review: Range Rover Velar

When the new Range Rover Velar was revealed at the Design Museum in London, not many people took note of the name, so it might surprise you to learn that it carries weight in the company’s history. The term was derived from the Latin word velaris, meaning to veil, and in 1969 was used to…
