Overland Classifieds :: Land Rover Discovery I 300tdi Pop-Top Camper

We’ve featured several impressive Discoverys recently, including a 2000 V8 Overland Rig and a 2001 Discovery II. As a Defender fan, I’d previously overlooked older Discoverys, but after seeing these builds, I became completely obsessed, and now find myself perusing classifieds in search of one. The Discovery effectively carries forward many of the benefits of…

Overland Classifieds :: 1982 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia

The Vanagon has become a symbol of freedom, wanderlust, and the great open road. It is therefore no surprise that this classic has swiftly become a desirable social media icon. The Vanagon is often viewed through rose-tinted spectacles, which can serve up some harsh realities for those expecting an adventure-ready turnkey rig. As an owner…

Overland Classifieds :: 2000 Land Rover Discovery

The Discovery was designed to carry forward Land Rover’s legendary utilitarian credentials while introducing a new level of driver refinement. In many ways, this model set the tone for all future Land Rovers, which are now almost indistinguishable from their Range Rover counterparts. Consequently, these older Discoveries offer a sweet spot between the rugged workhorse…

Overland Classifieds :: 2014 Toyota 4Runner Trail

If you’re looking for a rig that can do it all, the 4Runner is a fantastic option. I spent a significant amount of time in one exploring Minnesota this past winter, and despite extreme sub-zero temperatures, it ran flawlessly and was very comfortable. While they may not be the most well-equipped from the factory (the…

Overland Classifieds :: 1990 Unimog 1300L

Sometimes, to possess the unicorn your heart is longing for, you must turn to the vehicle importation process. Purchasing a vehicle sight unseen and passing your judgment solely based on photographs can require a leap of faith. But, the reward can also be great. Imported vehicles have the potential to be in better condition with…

Overland Classifieds :: 2000 Ford E350 EB 7.3L Sportsmobile UJOR 4×4 with CCV Top

Sportsmobile is a well-established name in the overland and off-highway vehicle space and there’s a reason for that: they know how to upfit recreational vehicles with functional living spaces. Sportsmobile converts Promasters, Transits, and Sprinters, and they are best recognized for their Ford E-van pop-top conversions. Although today’s vehicle was originally built out by Sportmobile,…

Overland Classifieds :: 2004 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab TRD 4×4

If you’re looking to purchase a used vehicle but want real-world data on prospective ownership, one of the best ways to get unfiltered feedback is to search internet forums. I’ve found that even the most devoted owners are quick to point out their model’s shortcomings, and it’s very unusual that a vehicle escapes criticism. However,…

Overland Classifieds :: 1992 Land Rover Defender 110

The Land Rover Defender is arguably the most iconic overland vehicle ever made (trust me, I’m British and thus completely impartial), and over the years, it has been the hero of many world-first expeditions. The Camel Trophy was undoubtedly fundamental to the Defender’s rise to fame. Ever since, it has continued to be one of…

Overland Classifieds :: 2010 Lexus LX 570

Lexus may not be the first company that comes to mind when we think of overlanding, but over the past few months, we’ve featured some amazing builds, such as this 2009 LX 570 and an incredible 2018 GX 460. The company carries forward Toyota’s reliability, go-anywhere capability, and build quality while introducing a new level…

The Mercedes Sprinter 4×4 platform is popular amongst overlanders, with recent examples including this 2019 Winnebago Revel and 2017 4×4 2500. This is a very sought-after vehicle, and during the pandemic, prices rocketed, with newer models, such as this 2021 Sprinter Revel, fetching almost $180,000 on the used market. However, there are still deals to…

Overland Classifieds :: 1997 Lexus LX 450

The LX 450 is largely based on Toyota’s Land Cruiser J80, which means class-leading all-terrain capability and reliability (with full-time 4WD, high and low range, and optional differential lock), but with a luxurious Lexus interior. At $20,000, today’s example is fairly priced, especially considering this equivalent 1997 FZJ80 recently sold for $38,000. Furthermore, this rig…

Overland Classifieds :: 2008 Ford E-350 Quad Van 4×4

The Ford E-350 is a popular choice amongst overlanders, with recent examples including this monster 1995 E-350 Bigfoot Camper and a 2013 Sportsmobile V10.
