Lots of photos of the things we saw this year.
Campers & Overland Vehicles
We did catch up with Marc Wassman of XP Camper on Thursday night and visited his vendor site off and on during the weekend.
We stopped by to visit Earthcruiser several times.
Global Expedition Vehicles
Their vehicle is metal covered with rivets.
Bliss Mobil BV
This one was very large.
They have an unusual pop-up
A Few from Unknown Vendors
Roof-top Tents and Trailers
There were quite a few of these this year.
A pop-up roof
Friday night, they had a happy hour with free beer and a musician performing from one of their rooftop tents.
We were impressed.
An interesting rooftop tent by Nemo.
Advanced Shelter Systems
It was great to see Shelterpod at Overland Expo. They’ve been to a couple of these before and their tents held up well against the strong winds.
Overland Vehicle Rentals
You don’t have to buy your own Overland Vehicle, there were several that rent them, too.
Adventure Travel Sports Rentals
They’ve been to several Overland Expo’s, too.
They brought a couple of items to the show.
And a few more vendors
The Turtle Expedition was there.
They had started out in the Showcase Vehicle section but moved their vehicle to the vendor area. It was good to see them again.
Kargo Master Safari
The brought live music, too. It is an interesting trend.
As always, we always visit the Garmin (formerly DeLorme) booth.
We love the inReach. It is a great device for two-way satellite texting and reaching out for help in case of emergency. We used it last year when we were stuck in the Black Rock Desert Playa. We didn’t have cell service, so being able to reach out for help was great.
They brought a great display for their air lockers.
