    $46,000 Dollar Overland Trailer?

    Not considering one myself, but was curious about the market for them. Judging by the mixed responses to the thread, some feel they are over priced while others find real value in them.

    DIY Expedition Vehicle Build VIDEO

    That’s actually a very good question. Additionally, I would ask where can you “legally” off road one of these rigs. Someone mentioned National Parks. Most NPs, at least in Alaska, have strict rules about off road use on its lands. Alaska and most of the Arctic have very fragile environments...

    $46,000 Dollar Overland Trailer?

    Seems like most of these trailers use off the shelve components. Sheet metal, drawer slides, lighting, HVAC, power systems, fabric, axles, hubs, wheels, etc. doubt a bunch of thought went into the design. I wonder how long it takes to produce one of these.

    Party Rated: Our Ram 5500 budget build

    Alaska Off-Roading with a Local JK Club

    Absolute bull**** Please don't fall for the line of bull****. Much of Alaska is a desert and some of the most fragile terrain in the state is tundra that gets less than 10 inches of precipitation a year. Permanently frozen soils (permafrost) under an active layer of soil prevents drainage...

    Flippac meets Unimog project

    I never understood the reason for such elevated sleeping positions. It seems like there are safer alternatives. What do you do if there are thunderstorms in the area?
