We just had the opportunity to check out one the coolest trucks in Canada. It’s a custom designed expedition truck/ camper that’s built on a 4×4 chassis. This thing is Bad Ass to say the least. This is a work truck that you can make some money with, then take it for a serious adventure or get to some remote location and stay there for a while. It’s got a custom aluminum flat deck and a custom aluminum camper that attaches/ detaches in a few minutes. The camper has a simple and clean layout that’s versatile with lots of space. Solar panel, fresh water & grey water tanks, propane tanks, sink, range, propane stove, bed and lots of space inside and out to store your surfboards and other gear. If you wanna bring dirtbikes, just attach them to the back hitch and your ready to go. Wish we had more time for trips cause this truck is for sale!
UPDATE -We took this truck for a drive a few days ago and were amazed. It drives really well, feels stable for it’s size, and the view from the cab is great. Clearly there was a lot of thought and engineering that went into this truck. Probably one of the coolest things is that the custom camper easily unclips with 6 quick release mechanisms, and you can just drive away and use the truck as a flat deck or attach a 5th wheel, and at the same time, your friends or guests can sleep inside your camper like a guest suite wherever you parked it. At nearly 15,000 GVW, there isn’t much that this truck can’t do. Here are some new photos that I took.
