Overland Vehicle Systems
Overland Vehicle Systems provides a variety of tents, annex’s, and awnings for your vehicle. They create their products with only the finest, best quality materials to ensure that your next outdoor adventure is a great one!
There are several advantages to traveling with a trailer on your next overland expedition, including weight distribution, and you can keep your trailer loaded in between trips (less work for you). The upside to investing in a trailer is that they are less expensive, you are still able to use your towing vehicle when not Overlanding, and helps guide you through some of those more challenging trails.
Overlanding tents give you the ability to explore the great outdoors and camp, hunt, or adventure wherever your vehicle can take you! Our tents are made from high quality materials that are not only weather-proof, but compatible with almost any terrain.It’s rather easy to distinguish between Rooftop and Ground tents. Rooftop tents are situated on top of your vehicle or trailer, and ground tents are of course placed on the ground.
Adding a portable fridge is the most popular upgrade when it comes to overlanding. Portable fridges are both useful and convenient.The first thing to think about before purchasing your portable fridge is the amount of energy it will be consuming. Depending on the weather, your fridge will be consuming anywhere from 1.0-4.0 amps in a day. This may be affected depending on the weather.One of the biggest pros to purchasing a portable fridge is the ability to carry perishable items that will last throughout the duration of your trip. With portable fridges you are able to carry all of your groceries and frozen goods.
Whether you are traveling in an RV, a van, or your truck, it may be time to consider investing in an inverter generator. An inverter produces AC (alternating current), converts it to DC (direct current), and then turns those currents into electricity. Generators are handy to have around in case you need to charge your electronics, power any camp lighting systems, and for your portable refrigerator!
Solar Panels are the best solution for those going camping in an RV or an expedition vehicle. If you are traveling in an RV or a trailer, it is recommended that you invest in a solar panel that has anywhere from 90 – 180 watts. If you are traveling in an expedition vehicle, such as a Jeep or a van, a 60-watt solar panel would be ideal.
