Have you ever wished you could try out that Four Wheel Campers setup before committing to buy, or needed a roof-top tent for just one week? Fully kitted overland vehicle rentals have been available abroad for decades, but as usual North America has lagged far behind. Over the last few years these types of vehicles have finally started becoming available here in the States.
