Offroad Camping Setups
Camping and off-roading go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. With the growing popularity of Overland-style off-roading (see What is Overlanding?), more and more outdoor adventure seekers are looking for ways to sleep in their rig. Some off-road enthusiasts can’t leave home without their Serta mattress and full size shower, while others take on a “less is more” approach to getting off the grid. Which of these off-road campers is more your style?

Check your shorts
This guy had better thank his lucky stars and get a clean pair of underwear. Any Jeep rollover is a bad thing, but rolling end over end is particularly dangerous. We’re glad they made it out ok. Probably not as glad as they are though!
