Ultimate R&D at Zone RV

Australia is not a forgiving place. While it’s people might be some of the kindest and most welcoming on earth, its landscape is anything but. Bone-rattling corrugations lead across sun-scorched deserts for days without fuel or water. Tight trails through dense rainforests are crisscrossed with deep fords through swirling rivers, and if the coastal drives…

Airstream Gets Off-Roady

Airstream has a long legacy of adventure. From their iconic journeys across North America to their largely off-road trek from Cape Town to Cairo, this company and its trailers have inspired millions to get out and explore the world around them. Now they’re embracing that heritage even more by letting customers go further from the…

Eezi-Awn Drop-down Fridge Buddy

Our Engel MT 45 fridge is built like a battleship. Like most good portable fridges, it weighs as much as one too, especially when loaded. Hoisting it atop the Decked drawer system in the bed of our Tacoma GS overlanding rig can be inconvenient, and in some cases, impossible; especially in light of the overhead…


GrizzlyNbear Overland

In the Czech town of Český Krumlov, I piloted my Defender 130 down a cobbled village road, heading towards the Vltava River. There, parked on the lawn next to a gigantic teepee, stood a spectacular Land Rover Defender 130. Leigh, a tattooed, muscular, and energetic Australian mountaineer and oil rigger stood beside the Landy with…

Although the NW Overland Rally is in its eighth year of tenure, BCOR just celebrated its second anniversary. Located in the same venue as its inaugural year, BCOR was held at about…

The 2018 Northwest Overland Rally

The NW Overland Rally, held in Plain, Washington, brings in overlanding enthusiasts from all across the Pacific Northwest and parts of Southwestern Canada—and occasionally places much farther away. Celebrating its eighth year, the NW Overland Rally (also known as NWOR) has grown from a small gathering of adventure-seeking attendees to a mid-sized rally that just…


Overlanding Elevated

When it comes to overland gear, North America has been playing catchup for the last decade. The trickle of products started with a few rooftop tents, followed by fridge/freezers, a torrent of off-road trailers, and finally a few innovative pop-top truck shells. All of this culminated into a pretty healthy menu of four-wheel drive fare,…


Expedition Portal Classifieds: GXV Safari Extreme

Colossal, enormous, gargantuan, titanic, gigantic, these are just a few words that could be used to describe this truck. Of course, you could also call it luxurious, comfortable, capable, and overland ready. That’s because it’s a 2012 Global Expedition Vehicle, designed and manufactured for exploring the far reaches of the globe in complete serenity. It…

We have had the good fortune of attending the Abenteuer & Allrad (Adventure and All-wheel Drive) in 2017 and again in…
