Are you looking to add a little more adventure to your camping routine this summer? Try Overland camping. Overlanding is a mix of camping and off-roading. It is meant to be a little more off-grid than traditional camping and emphasizes not only the outdoor camping experience but also the journey to get there.
So what makes an Overland RV different from a regular camper and gives it the ability to go off-roading? Overland campers are built tougher on the exterior, often equipped with things like off-road tires and four wheel drive. They are designed to be more stable on rougher and bumpier trails. However, from the inside they are still a luxurious home away from home. In this article, we will cover some of the best Overland RVs on the market to help you decide what fits your lifestyle and budget.
