Now, this version, of the three possible ones OVRLND offers, is built for 5 ft and 6 ft beds of Tacomas, Frontiers, Gladiators, and Rangers, among others. Oh, you have a bigger truck? That's not a problem.
Starting at $9,400 (€8,900), Tundras, F150s, 1500s to 3500s, and just about any other truck with a 5.5 ft or 6.5 ft bed can be accommodated. Even 8-footers have a place under the OVRLND umbrella. Be sure to check the list of vehicles OVRLND doesn't build for, as there are a couple.
Once the frame and paneling are set down, it's time to check out the next stage in our glamper-achieving process. You may have noticed that these units are pop-top campers, which has upsides and downsides. One benefit of such a unit is how it affects your vehicle's mileage.
Since you're not hauling down the highway with a towering travel trailer, gooseneck, or even some of the 'other' truck campers around, how much longer you stay at the pump basically boils down to how heavy your unit is and not how far it's hanging off your truck. Just 11 inches above your cab is all you'll discover.
One downside of a pop-top camper is that they're very difficult to make four-season worthy. I'm not saying it's impossible - it isn't, and a few crews cracked the puzzle - but because the tent canvas often used to join the roof to the remainder of units isn't the sort of material that keeps the cold out. It does, however, work without problems in case of rain and wind.
Now, once the base has been completed, let's climb inside and see what else is in store here. To do so, drop your truck's tailgate, flip up the camper's rear hatch, and welcome home, literally. Judging by the images in the gallery, this hatch vertical action can be replaced with horizontal-opening doors, so don't be afraid to dive deeper into the options list; it's a long one.
Once we've accessed the interior of OVRLND's pop tops, you'll find yourself in what you can consider the living room of your unit, and beyond that, hanging over your truck's cab, a queen bed waits for your weary and tired bones. Since this platform is built out of honeycomb composite materials, it's light, strong, and warmer than traditional wood or metal platforms.
Just load up your truck with a cooktop, gas or electric, a fridge, battery pack, some solar panels, and an inverter, and get out of town already! Heck, since there's plenty of cash left over, why not bring along some fishing poles you just bought or a pair of e-bikes and really go nuts?
Bring along an outdoor shower room, a portable toilet, and even a tent annex, and before long, you'll find yourself in the middle of nowhere, with the only man-made noises being the ones you make and the occasional airplane flying overhead.
In short, I've been reading the comments you folks leave on some of my camper articles, and if this one isn't within just about everyone's budget, I don't know what is. Maybe one-person e-bike campers are for you. For everyone else looking to join the camper and adventure lifestyle, OVRLND needs to be checked out!
