AT Overland Equipment Unveils Aterra Truck Topper

Having a look at this topper camper, one location comes to mind, and that is Baja. I predict you will see many of these toppers bouncing down to Todos Santos and everything in between. Why? Read on.

AT Overland Equipment’s latest product, the Aterra Truck Topper, is designed to offer an exceptional experience and quality without needing a truck conversion to a flatbed; the topper shell is available for 6.5-foot full-size truck beds. Combining lightweight construction with durability, the Aterra Topper likely presents the ideal platform for outdoor aficionados and DIY Overland truck builders to create their own custom habitation system. With a competitive price point, this topper bridges the gap between traditional pop-up shells and hard-sided slide-in campers. Yes, the pricing really is competitive.

One of the standout features of the Aterra Topper is its sizable rear opening liftgate, which provides ample clearance for loading motorcycles or ATVs into the truck bed if that is your cup of tea, or you can install your own furniture. With a 90-degree opening angle, the liftgate also offers shade over the truck’s tailgate when in use. For enhanced security, the liftgate can be locked inside and outside, ensuring owners and their valuable equipment peace of mind. Additionally, the topper is equipped with four Tern Overland double-pane windows featuring roller blinds and solar screens, facilitating excellent convection ventilation. The light-blocking blinds enable late sleeping or “stealth camping,” while the strategically placed upper windows above the bed allow sleepers to enjoy views of the nighttime sky and fresh air at their convenience.

Inside the Aterra Topper, occupants will find a luxurious King-size bed with a plush 3-inch thick upholstery foam mattress, offering unparalleled comfort. With a mattress width of 74 inches, even sleepers up to 6 feet tall can sleep across the cabin if desired. The split mattress design also allows for conversion into a sitting sofa when placed on the lower bed rails. For those needing additional sleeping space, a second split mattress panel is available to create a bunk bed setup.

The topper comes with several standard features designed to enhance the camping experience. These include dimmable LED interior strip lighting, USB and 12VDC power points for convenient device charging, and removable panels on the rear corner electrical accessory wire chases, providing endless possibilities for electrical upfitting. The inclusion of mechanical camper jack mounts ensures easy installation and removal of the topper.

Highlighted standard features of the Aterra Truck Topper include a 185-watt solar panel, two wall-mounted folding tables, and MOLLE panels in interior rear corners.

For those interested in the specifications, the Aterra Topper boasts honeycomb composite construction and a UV-resistant polyurea coating both inside and out. The camper’s overall width is 76 inches, length measures 130 inches, and height reaches 62 inches (measured from the top of the truck bed rail). The interior headroom stands at 81 inches, considering a 20-inch truck bed depth, and the base model weight is approximately 510 pounds.

With its innovative design and array of features, the Aterra Topper is set to revolutionize the truck bed camping solutions market. The base price starts at $20,500, offering an attractive option for outdoor enthusiasts seeking a premium camping experience. AT Overland Equipment continues demonstrating its commitment to providing top-quality products for adventure seekers, enabling them to explore the great outdoors in unparalleled comfort and style.
