Adventurous Couple Crafts Ultimate Overland Truck

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.

Tesla Model S bug out vehicle?

In honor of Veterans Day, Tesla released a camouflage Model S sedan. The vehicle was customized by SS Customs, and outfitted with some goodies that would help in a SHTF situation.
