The KiraVan is apparently what you get from a room full of brilliant engineers with a bottomless budget. And of course, one objective: bring everyone’s high-tech adventure vehicle fantasies to life.
Ford has partnered with camper outfit Livin Lite to be the only automaker with OEM mobile home conversions on their trucks. You’ll also be able to get Ford-branded trailers by the time these hit lots in 2016.
I woke up naked and freezing, stretched around a heater like some desperate, heat-starved lizard with a headache so strong I was sure I’d been put to sleep by a frying pan to the face. A typical morning—until I noticed the Rocky Mountains instead of my Babes & Big Rigs calendar in the window. Welcome to van life.
Gizmodo rounded up the best LED flashlights back in 2012, and Indefinitely Wild has a great primer as well, but now it’s time to ask the audience. Whether you suffer frequent power outages, spend your time outdoors or in the garage, or just feel better having one around, a great flashlight is an essential tool. But…
The 2015 Overland Expo went down this weekend at Mormon Lake, Arizona just outside Flagstaff. It’s an annual convention of next-level camping nuts who spend the value of a house turning trucks into… well, houses. Just look at these marvelous monsters.
In less than the time required to catch up on a few Game of Thrones episodes, I went from my house to the location in the photo above. Sadly, this is the first time I've ever been there. Here are my thoughts on why it's worth getting off the couch and onto the road (or trail).
Alex and Hannah spent about a year turning this 1986 Hino flatbed truck into a beautiful cabin on wheels, which came out looking a lot better than every fort I've tried to make. Alex reckons his house will do a quarter mile in "at least thirty seconds."
You don't need an off-road trailer to get to some incredible camping spots. Check out how good this Airstream Basecamp looks with a color-matched Ford Raptor posting up on the Oregon Coast!
If you're out fishing, hunting, or camping, a decent knife is a good thing to have on hand. If you haven't honed the blade in a while, you can do it along the top edge of your vehicle's window.
"Hey, you want to come camping with Bear?" That's a pretty random email to get on a Thursday morning, and it contained no other details. So, I said yes, packed a bag and hopped on a plane to New Mexico. Here's what happened over the next few days.
What started life as a 2WD delivery van had been reborn as an unbelievably bad ass off-road camper, which has since had the bejesus beaten out of it and needs a new maniac to bring it to life once again. Do it. DOOO IT. Because holy crap is this thing righteous.
For much of the year, I live out of my pickup truck in Northern Alberta. I do it for work, but you could live in a truck as a way to explore the world or just save money on rent. Here's how.
Camping doesn't have to be a grueling endeavor deep into the hinterland. Sometimes you just want to rent a plot, pull your car up between a couple trees, set up a mosquito canopy, and crack a beer.
Tired of finally getting a potential mate to come home with you, only to be shut down when they realize you live in a crappy van? Sucks, doesn't it. You need a Mercedes-Benz Marco Polo; it's got the vagabondy swagger of a classic top-popper, with a three-pointed star to on the grille to prove you live on wheels by…
If your ideal vacation has you cruising the countryside in a VW Camper Van, but you're having a heck of a time finding a used one for sale, Dub-Box USA might just have a decent alternative. In fact, the company's retro-styled camper trailers are probably better option than an aging VW, thanks to modern amenities like…
Forget living in your bathing suit and wearing marshmallow on your face for a few days. Taking your car camping in jolly olde England between the First and Second World Wars required a three-piece suit, driver, and a mobile cottage to rough it in.
Audi has teamed up with outdoor company heimplanet to build an rough-weather-ready geodesic retractable tent for the Q3 SUV. I'm not sure how deep into the great outdoors a Q3 could really get, but you'll certainly look cool wherever you pitch this bad boy.
Last weekend, Lara, Wiley and I found what's got to be the most beautiful car camping spot on god's green earth. If you have the ability to drive a car to Big Sur, read a map and cook over a fire, you can camp there too. Here's how.
