    Overland Explorer BASE-CAMP Pickup Camper - Soft-Wall and Hard-Wall Versions

    OEV website is updated. It's been updated to no longer have separate pages for each model. You have to go to the main page and scroll down. If you go to https://overlandex.com/ and scroll down, the various models are there. If the old page loads, hold down shift and hit F5 Key to clear your...

    2021 Overland Explorer CAMP-HBE pop-up flatbed pickup camper

    It is a domino effect. Ha. With the current REDARC location under the driver's side dinette seat, I believe the DC feeds in from the pickup's drivers side and runs under the galley to that compartment. If the REDARC was moved to the passenger side dinette seat, the current wire run location...

    2021 Overland Explorer CAMP-HBE pop-up flatbed pickup camper

    I didn't put a tape to that compartment when I did the images. Ballpark is around 20" deep and 20" wide on the floor (but then there is the rear kickout that angles up and away. That footprint is a very rough estimate from memory. Will be interesting to see where they default the inverter and...

    2021 Overland Explorer CAMP-HBE pop-up flatbed pickup camper

    I enjoy Will Prowse's videos. Enough technical data to hold my attention and calls something garbage if it is. Ha. Though I don't have solar on anything more than camper and a "solar generator", I love the tech and have enjoyed reading and learning about it for decades. ohmmu has been getting...

    2021 Overland Explorer CAMP-HBE pop-up flatbed pickup camper

    Though I've not confirmed, I assume FWC and all manufacturers have had similar percentage increases in the last year. It's crazy. I know boats, motorcycles/ATV/UTV, and pickups sure have. I tend to always find and buy gently used, 2 - 5 year old things to maximize value. CAMP-X is one of the few...

    2021 Overland Explorer CAMP-HBE pop-up flatbed pickup camper

    I'm very excited that OEV plans to move the battery tray to the passenger side, under-dinette compartment accessible from outside. Just makes so much more sense there and will make maintenance and expansion much easier. I plan to use two 206Ah Lithium; I can only fit a single 100Ah Lithium in my...

    2000 Super Duty CC SB 7.3: Alum-line flatbed and installation

    I looked up Alum-Line on BBB and there is only one review and two complaints. One of the two incidents are hidden and the other two are not related to this situation, so perhaps the hidden complaint is the one. I'll be interested to see if the BBB every makes it viewable.

    2000 Super Duty CC SB 7.3: Alum-line flatbed and installation

    Though there is never a great excuse for such a poorly executed and unsafe install, it's hard to find skilled employees currently so I can see how an unskilled and uncaring employee (would have to be both for such a poorly-executed install) could complete a few of these bad installs before being...

    2021 Overland Explorer CAMP-HBE pop-up flatbed pickup camper

    We didn't make it to the expo as we'd hoped. Would have been fun to meet Arnold in person (I've only talked to him and Mark via email these last two years). Great bunch of people both up there and at the various US dealerships. Note that the CAMP-HBE that I photographed in this thread is...

    2020 Overland Explorer CAMP-X pop-up slide-in pickup camper

    To my knowledge, the extrusions are not C channel/U channel and are simple 90 degree angle extrusions. Not sure where the other 3 inches comes from per linear inch but you would have some additional bonding inside (panel to panel). For example, from their descriptions, for each linear inch...

    Yes, that bracket redesign accounts for the orientation difference and associated padlock fitment issue. It looks like that bracket change makes it easier to open and close the Derringer handle on the Torklift so that was likely the reason. I like it. I know the larger hole on the bracket is...

    2020 Overland Explorer CAMP-X pop-up slide-in pickup camper

    Paul, Curious if your brackets are in a different orientation than mine. The upper hook of the torklift is fixed and can't be rotated. The bottom hook can rotate. So how the torklift sits is really depends on the orientation of your camper tiedown bracket. My brackets are north south with a...

    2020 Overland Explorer CAMP-X pop-up slide-in pickup camper

    Good reminder on the Truma AquaGo temp settings as a way to prevent freezing. We definitely love leaving it on during the day so hot water is nearly immediate. For us, it's a bit too noisy to leave on all night (seems a bit noisier than the furnace) so we just drain it since I use the water for...

    2020 Overland Explorer CAMP-X pop-up slide-in pickup camper

    Yes, we primarily disperse camp. We only stay in campgrounds when we absolutely must. Usually that is when we have our fishing boat in tow which doesn't do well on forest service roads. Ha. Usually we can find dispersed camping even when traveling in unfamiliar areas. I'm spoiled to the point...

    2021 Overland Explorer CAMP-HBE pop-up flatbed pickup camper

    We had a fun siting Friday as we pulled back into Bozeman after a 3 day/750 mile overlanding trip with our CAMP-X; We passed a semi with one CAMP-HBE and at least two trays presumably on their way to BigSkyRV since we were 6 miles from there when we passed it. Sounds like there will be many OEV...

    We did an April trip to Escalante/Grand Staircase/Bryce/Kodachrome which I shared a few images of earlier in this thread. Here are some more images from a portion of our early to mid summer trips. We are lucky enough to have 8 different mountain ranges within a 3 hour radius (2 of the 8 are 15...

    Part 2 of Chris's series. As per usual on his channel, not really a review, but still fun to see some shots of the borrowed rig out and about.

    2020 Overland Explorer CAMP-X pop-up slide-in pickup camper

    We just arrived home from 3 days/2 nights out. Once again put the turnbuckles to the test on day 2 and first part of day 3. Within our 3 day/758 mile trip, we did about 80 miles of forest service road including 3/4 mile up a spur we had no business going up. Ha. I managed to not rip the mud...

    Congrats! We love our North of the Border trips. This year's trip was delayed, but hopeful things will normalize a bit next summer. Meanwhile, no shortage of trips around our local mountain ranges. Thanks for posting some pics. Would love to see others post some pictures out and about with...
