How To Solar Power Your Overland Journey

Getting out into the backcountry with your overland vehicle for a few days or a few weeks is the perfect way to recharge your internal batteries and give you a new outlook on life. But the question we often get is, “How do you recharge your physical batteries while you’re in the wilderness?”

The Best Way to Attend an Overland Expo

Overland Expo’s educational programming is second to none. Each event features hundreds of session hours of classes that teach everything from vehicle recovery to camp cooking, from advanced navigation to border crossing basics, and from how-to-DIY-build-your-dream-rig to classes on drone videography.

Winnebago, Mercedes Power Up All-Electric Camper Vans

With vehicle electrification happening across the industry, it’s no surprise that van and RV makers are also looking to offer a fully-electric option for travelers, and it may have many advantages over gas-powered rigs in the future.

Midland Debuts GMRS Portable Repeater System

Midland has debuted the MXR10 repeater, which should help greatly extend the range of your walkies if you tend to need long-range communication away from cellular systems. For those unfamiliar, a “repeater” is a device that receives a radio signal, greatly boosts the power, and then re-broadcasts (repeats) it, all pretty much instantaneously. It’s what amateur radio users, search and rescue teams, and professional radio broadcasters have used since the 1970s to send signals far and wide.

Warn Winch Remote Recall

Winch maker Warn has issued a recall for over 120,000 VR EVO series winch remote controls that may activate if water gets into them. To be clear, the recall is for the winches’ detachable remote controls, not the VR EVO winches themselves. 

Suzuki Debuts 5-Door Jimny that We Want but Can’t Have

American fans of Suzuki’s tough-but-tiny Suzuki Jimny 4X4 will have to continue to admire the machines from a distance, and the heartache may intensify with the introduction in India of a new 5-door variant that would seem tailor-made for “bigger car” markets like the U.S.

The MXPW500 Ammo Can Base Station from Midland provides overlanders with a mobile home base station to maintain a connection with your party at camp while others in the group enjoy the backcountry.

Toyota Hilux GR Sport

Toyota Australia: No Hilux GR Sport Truck For You, America

The list of fun motorized toys that don’t make it to American shores is long and sad. Perhaps one of the most frustrating absences are some of the vehicles plying the Australian Outback. Now, U.S. drivers have one more missed Aussie treat to lament: the new Toyota HiLux GR Sport truck.

Industry Spotlight: Truck Brigade

Ryan Horton and TJ Watson, founders of Truck Brigade, came together with the shared vision of revolutionizing the overland parts and accessory market. In 2017, that vision became a reality, as Truck Brigade was founded and is today considered the industry-leading one-stop shop for overland and offroad parts and accessories.

This Trailer Is So Light, Almost Any Vehicle Can Pull It

If you’re considering an EV or a smaller car and want to pull a trailer for camping, working, or a day at the beach, you usually have very few options. Most trailers are far too heavy to be towed by small cars. That is until the Polydrops P19 [Shorty] hit the market.

How to Go to the Bathroom When Overlanding

Using the bathroom when overlanding can be a real challenge. When nature calls, and you need to use the bathroom on the trail, be prepared with the best practices and gear to poop outside — the correct way.
