Andrew and Ashley give DIY truck conversion tips for those looking to go overlanding on a budget. They take us through the process of building their home-built expedition vehicle, the Muse Roamer, which is a converted 2004 Ford F-550 four-wheel-drive. They reveal the components they used, such as solar panels, lithium-ion batteries, propane tank, and more. Andrew shows off the compartments and storage spaces, custom-made furniture, and finishes with a tour of the inside, highlighting their favorite features.
Ginger and Greg build the ultimate overland adventure rig. They share their experience with different types of campers before settling on an aluminum one, and how they did thorough research on rig selection to ensure a long-term solution. Additionally, they provide an in-depth look at the customized modifications they’ve made to their truck, including tool and outdoor gear storage, bumper lights and solar panels, to make it off-road and off-grid capable.
In this YouTube video, Kara and Jason share a tour of their custom-built overland camper, Beasty. They began camping in a tent and slowly upgraded to larger trailers, but eventually realized they needed something more rugged for off-road use. They based their build on a Turtle Expedition camper and used an F-550 chassis to create their unique tiny home on wheels, complete with a solar-powered lithium battery bank and collapsible storage bins. It’s an impressive, non-traditional tiny home that truly embraces the spirit of overlanding.
