Overland Expo 2015: Big Rigs

It’s hard to ignore when a massive overland adventuremobile rolls up in front of you! At Overland Expo each year there are always a huge variety of the big rigs in attendance that vie for your attention. Overland Expo 2015 was no different, with vehicles ranging from massive Brazos based rigs to smaller van and full sized american pickup sized rigs. While it’s hard to define what makes a “big rig” different from a “trail rig,” I’ve basically separated them in my coverage of the show by vehicles where you need to setup camp, and those where the bed and living space is always ready to go. For all the “trail sized” rigs from this year’s Overland Expo be sure to check out the post HERE.
