These vans are sought after for their generous interior living space vis-à-vis their modest exterior dimensions, long-lived engines and drivetrains, availability of OEM and aftermarket parts and accessories, and 4WD…

Overland Classifieds :: 2006 Land Rover Discovery LR3

The cost of used 4WDs suitable for overlanding can be prohibitive, with many examples priced between $50,000 and $100,000. However, there are still some outliers that tick all the boxes for remote vehicle travel yet are available for under $20,000. A few recent examples would be this $15,500 1998 Mitsubishi Montero, a $13,000 1999 Toyota…

Overland Classifieds :: 1996 Toyota Hiace Super Custom Limited 4WD

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the Toyota Hiace 4WD, which I believe is one of the best bang-for-your-buck vans for overlanding. If you’re not convinced, I recommend checking out this stunning 1994 Toyota Hiace 4×4 overland camper, which travelled from the Netherlands, through Asia, all the way to Japan! If you’d…

Overland Classifieds :: 2019 EarthCruiser FX #61

If you’re in the market for a luxurious overland vehicle there’s no shortage of options with high-end offerings from EarthRoamer, SLRV Expedition Vehicles, Global Expedition Vehicles, EarthCruiser, and more. However, with starting prices in excess of half a million dollars, I can’t help feeling that many of the companies prioritize luxury rather than rugged capability…

Overland Classifieds :: 2019 Global Expedition Vehicles Patagonia

I’ve featured way too many sensible rigs recently, so it’s about time that I post another rolling mansion. I never get over the price of these 4WD giants, especially as I’m not entirely sure how suitable they are for round-the-world exploration. However, there’s no denying these builds are very impressive and better equipped than most…

Destination of the Week :: Pamukkale, Turkiye

Turkiye is a beautiful country and a delight to visit, with diverse landscapes made up of gorgeous beaches, idyllic villages, ancient ruins, and impressive mountains.

My favorite overland rigs are those that provide maximum comfort in the smallest possible footprint. Recent examples of this winning combo include this 1993 Mercedes Puch 230GE High Roof Camper, a Toyota Troopcarrier, and a Toyota Land Cruiser HZJ78. These rigs are easy to drive, capable, relatively economical, and will fit in a shipping container….

Overland Classifieds :: 1984 Land Rover Defender 90

The Land Rover Defender, alongside the Toyota Land Cruiser, is widely regarded as the quintessential overlander. This 4WD icon has arguably done more than any other vehicle to promote overland travel and remains one of the best options for round-the-world exploration. It’s a desirable platform and priced accordingly with recent examples including this $43,000 1993…

Overland Classifieds :: 2013 AEV Brute

The AEV Brute is a rarity and does not come up often on our forum with just a few for sale over the last few years, including a 2015 Double Cab w/ Overland-Ready Bed Rack and Warn’s AEV Hemi Brute.

Overland Classifieds :: 2010 Ford E-350 Ujoint 4×4

So why is the E-350 such a desirable option? Well, first and foremost there are very few truly capable 4WD vans out there….

Overland Classifieds :: 1993 Mercedes Puch 230GE High Roof Camper

The classic G-Wagen, like the Land Rover Defender and Toyota Land Cruiser, is widely considered an overlanding icon. It is one of the 4WDs by which all others are measured and remains one of the best options for round-the-world travel. Even though they aren’t as numerous as Defenders and Land Cruisers, it’s no surprise that…
