Check Out These All-Terrain Capable RV Trucks at Overland Expo Mountain West
YouTube Channel The Fast Lane Truck is heading towards the Overland Expo Mountain West to take a look at high-performance pickup trucks designed for camping, off-roading, or just about anything you can imagine.
These very capable, heavy trucks aren’t your ordinary pickups – watch the video to see five crazy trucks ranked from most sensitive to most extreme.
Custom Trucks and RVs at Overland Expo Mountain West
The first truck is a Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 with the Duramax diesel engine which will no longer be available after the 2022 model year when Chevy moves the Colorado to a line of 4-cylinder gasoline engines.
This ZR2 has updated tires and wheels as well as a King off-road suspension system – the truck also has a small truck bed with a tent on the roof.
The Fast Lane Truck describes this as a fairly realistic and cost-effective off-road system designed for anyone who enjoys camping off the beaten path, this setup could be replicated on virtually any mid-size pickup like the Jeep Gladiator or the Nissan Frontier as it is on this Colorado.
Next is a Ram 1500 from Customs Bowenthe truck rolls on 35-inch tires and also has a lift kit. The Laramie Longhorn Ram truck was originally a short-bed truck; chosen because the owner wanted a truck with V8 power and the HEMI provided the level of power he wanted.
Then the original bed is gone and replaced with a flat bed with a canopy sitting on it with an emphasis on storage and space throughout – it’s a capable and functional setup that’s a step above. above that of Colorado.
Then there’s a Toyota Tundra, with a V8 engine, which is no longer available on newer Tundras.
This Toyota has upgraded suspension but stock wheels with all-terrain tires – the rear camper setup could cost between $30,000 and $40,000 and is a very functional build like the one on the Ram that l preceded.
Take it up a notch with the best custom pickups and motorhomes
It’s not every day you get to walk under a truck like you do with this version of Elevation Off Grid with a Ford F-550 chassis as its base.
This high performance truck can have two tents on top and is a commercial grade truck with a unique multi-link suspension system.
The truck can carry a payload of 9,000 lbs with a custom 10-foot bed designed to look like a standard pickup truck.
This truck is probably a 7 figure build with a combination of supreme durability and comfort.
The final truck is by far the craziest, equating to a build costing over $1,000,000. This off-road ready motorhome has a Stewart & Stevenson chassis from a crane the owner built from the frame.
It has a fully functional kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and entertainment area as well as a deck on the side of the truck.
The owner states that he enjoys driving the truck to the ocean tide line and enjoying the water coming up to the truck.
From standard to out of this world, the trucks in this video offer a great idea of the range of off-road modifications that can be added to a truck to truly customize it.
