Overland Classifieds :: GXV Patagonia

The pandemic forced many wealthy jet setters to explore closer to home, and with that came a boom in luxury overland vehicles. We’ve shared a number of these expedition-ready rolling mansions, including this $675,000 2021 SLRV Expedition Vehicle, a $334,000 2015 EarthCruiser #64, and a $290,000 Mercedes Vario 4×4. Perhaps it’s just me, but I…

Destination :: Lovatnet Lake, Norway

Living on the road has provided me with many magical experiences, but a select few were genuinely life-changing. The opportunity to kayak on the iconic Lovatnet lake was one such moment. The lake is located in the municipality of Stryn (the closest village is Loen, 1.2 miles), 52 meters above sea level, and is close…

Overland Classifieds :: 1982 Vanagon Westfalia

Love or hate them, there’s simply no denying the popularity of classic Volkswagen campers. The Bus (or T2) has always been a symbol of freedom and wanderlust, but it has been somewhat eclipsed in recent years by its successor, the Vanagon (T3). The latter carried forward much of its predecessor’s charm but introduced superior reliability…

Destination :: M. & M. Garage, Malosco, Italy

It’s always intimidating traveling overseas in your vehicle, especially when you’ve taken a 2.5 year hiatus (thanks, Covid), and you drive a notoriously temperamental Vanagon Syncro. Nevertheless, I felt confident in my vehicle after a recent mechanical overhaul and was beyond excited to be headed to Northern Italy, specifically the Dolomites. The van drove impeccably…

Overland Classifieds :: 2017 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 Sportsmobile

The Mercedes Sprinter is one of the most popular vehicles for van life, with many professional camper conversions offered from Winnebago, Westfalia, and Sportsmobile. The introduction of a capable 4WD model has made this platform increasingly desirable with overlanders, with recent expedition-ready examples including this $177,900 Revel 44E 4WD and a $119,000 2017 4×4 2500….

Overland Classifieds :: 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser Overland Build

The Toyota Land Cruiser is the definitive overland vehicle by which all alternatives are measured. A bold statement, but as the years have passed, I’ve only become more certain of this. I’m currently exploring Italy’s Dolomites, where my Vanagon Syncro has struggled daily with the colossal inclines and terrifying descents. Thus far, I’ve endured severe…

Overland Classifieds :: 2016 Toyota Tacoma Expedition Build

The Tacoma was first introduced to the US market in 1995 as a replacement for the Hilux and provided an altogether more refined driving experience while carrying the same bulletproof dependability and workhorse credentials forwards. It has since forged a reputation as one of the most reliable trucks on the market, offering class-leading off-road capability…

Overland Classifieds :: 2005 Lexus GX470 Sport

Excellent all-terrain performance matched with bulletproof reliability and class-leading interior comfort are just some of the reasons the Lexus GX470 is a great option for vehicle travel. I admit it’s not the first rig that comes to mind when we think of overlanding, but that makes it all the more interesting. Lexus is perhaps best…

Overland Classifieds :: 2016 Ford F-550 Custom Overlander

Luxury overland vehicles have become increasingly popular during the pandemic as more people travel closer to home. Subsequently, this has led to long wait times for new builds and inflated prices for used examples. EarthRoamer is arguably the pioneer of this sector, producing vehicles well in excess of $1,000,000 (check out their $1,900,000 HD model…

Overland Classifieds :: 2015 Lexus GX460 Overland Build

It’s fair to say that for many of us, overlanding conjures romanticized ideas of navigating gravel switchbacks, through jaw-dropping scenery, in a cool rig. However, these visions tend to omit the long highway miles, traffic jams, busy cities, narrow streets, potholes, and other harsh realities of vehicle travel in this modern age. Sure, an old…

Overland Classifieds :: 2020 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison Edition w/ Super Pacific Camper

The popularity of overlanding has grown exponentially during the pandemic, with many people ditching international trips for vehicle travel closer to home. As a result, the demand for campers and expedition rigs has skyrocketed, with the automotive industry responding accordingly. It seems like every big car manufacturer now offers some form of “adventure pack” for…

Consequently, used Tacomas are highly sought after, with some…
