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.

AT Overland’s Aterra XL Flatbed Camper

Photography by Richard Giordano While I’m tucked into the warm camper bed, the wind howls outside. I don’t have to worry about an unattended ground tent liberating itself from the ground and tumbling away, nor any rooftop tent canvas flapping. I’m enveloped in a motionless cocoon, like a caterpillar protected against the elements. Ponderosa pines…

“The world, we are told, was made especially for man – a presumption not supported by all the facts – John Muir” This is the legend that greets you as you land on the Fore Winds website, and the implication is that this is a company that makes products tough enough to withstand the least…

Ram 2500 Overland Build :: SPod Bantam X and Touchscreen Controller Installation

When I started researching how to install aftermarket lighting in my Ram 2500, I was very quickly overwhelmed with information. I was also discouraged to learn that making a small mistake could present a myriad of problems for the many computerized systems found in my vehicle. As someone with DIY ambitions who wants to understand…

Kovea Dream Gas BBQ

Editor’s note: This article was originally published in Overland Journal’s Summer 2021 Issue. Don’t we all appreciate when a product serves more than one purpose? Kovea has hit that mark with the Dream Gas BBQ. While it is not the most compact stove on the market, it combines multiple functions for added convenience. This butane-fueled…

Overland Classifieds :: 2007 Overland Toyota FJ Cruiser

The FJ Cruiser is one of the few 4WDs that looks as fresh today as it did when originally launched (revealed as a concept car back in 2003 at the North American International Auto Show). I’m a big fan and have shared several examples over the past few months, including a 2007 Supercharged FJ and…
