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.

Industry Spotlight: Kovea & Nomadica Outfitters

It was the pursuit of products that were compact and well made that led Josh and Ramin to form Nomadica Outfitters. It also lead them to importing and distributing Kovea products in the USA.

Industry Spotlight: Motorcycle Offsetters

Andreas Gneist, the founder of Motorcycle Offsetters, used to work in the financial City of London, UK, spending all of his limited free time to ride and travel in North Africa, Europe, Australia, and the U.S. Fed up with the predictability of corporate life, he quit – and moved to British Columbia, Canada in 2018.

Industry Spotlight: EcoFlow

The birth of EcoFlow came only half a decade ago when a team of young engineers brought together their knowledge of battery power, passion for tech innovation, and renewable energy to create the original RIVER 412.

Industry Spotlight: INEOS Grenadier

A pub, a beer, and a plan. Sir Jim Ratcliffe had an idea and a thirst. He went to The Grenadier, a London pub, and met with four equally thirsty friends. But the thirst wasn’t just for the pub’s liquid fare. Sir Ratcliffe had a thirst for a rugged, no-nonsense, utilitarian 4X4.

Industry Spotlight: Potential Motors

Potential Motors began from a desire to transform the driving experience. On this journey, Potential’s Chief Scientist, an avid overlander in his Winnebago, started to get fed up with the limitations of where he could go. Time after time, he would come to trails where his vehicle was simply too wide to enter. He would look up the mountain and see the peak, but it was completely inaccessible to him and anyone else with a van, truck, or SUV.

Industry Spotlight: Oliver Travel Trailers

The Oliver family has been camping for decades and has a great love for each other and the outdoors. They have always enjoyed the togetherness that camping brings and the memories they shared during their adventures.

Industry Spotlight: High Country Motor Lodge

Even the most well-traveled overlander needs to take the occasional pit stop to relax, reorganize, and plan the next leg of the journey. If you’re going to take some time off from the road, it’s best to do it at a place that’s designed with the adventurous spirit in mind.

Industry Spotlight: Mac’s Custom Tie Downs

Those familiar with the overlanding market know that storage is particularly important. Gear and supplies must be stored safely in compact spaces whilst allowing the overall living space to be accessible and enjoyable.

Industry Spotlight: Dometic

From weekend outings in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado to extended journeys into Oregon’s Owyhee Canyonlands, the Dometic product, sales, and marketing team is passionate about vehicle-based adventure.

Industry Spotlight: C4 Fabrication

Freedom, rebellion, and fearless individualism are just some of the virtues C4 Fabrication was founded on seven years ago by Caleb Rupp.

Industry Spotlight: Beyond Clothing

Rooted in the Pacific Northwest and inspired by the beauty of the great outdoors, Beyond Clothing® was founded in 1996 in Seattle, WA as a supplier of technical and durable gear for US SOCOM.

Industry Spotlight: Honda

The birth of American Honda began with motorcycles over 60 years ago. Not too long after, the first Honda vehicles rolled off the production line and soon became best sellers.

Industry Spotlight: Mosko Moto

Mosko Moto started ten years ago with a crash and a question. The crash was on the Mosquito Coast of Honduras, aka ‘La Moskitia.’ That’s where our name comes from, and it’s also where I (Pete) broke my leg.

Nokian Tyres

Industry Spotlight: Nokian Tyres

The only limit to adventure should be imagination. That’s the spirit of overlanders everywhere, removing barriers and paving new paths, no matter how challenging the journey.

Adaptive Humanity

Industry Spotlight: Adaptive Humanity

Adaptive Humanity founder Matt Hallett was an active outdoor adventure seeker who tried to live life to the fullest, but that all changed in a blink of an eye.

Overland Journal

Industry Spotlight: Overland Journal

Back in 2002, Scott Brady was sitting under the fluorescent office lights of the software company he worked for and decided that he wanted to explore the world. So, Scott started Expeditions West, bought a Toyota Tacoma, built it out into an overland expedition rig (which was surprisingly uncommon at the time), and drove it up into the Arctic Circle.
