Overland Expo 2015: Off-Road Adventuremobile

There are always so many amazing overland adventuremobile in attendance at the annual Overland Expo, and 2015 was no different. The following is a gallery of many of the interesting “trail sized” off-road capable overland rigs that I spotted around the 3 day event, which include: GWagon, Series Land Rover, Land Rover Discovery, Range Rover Classic, Defender, Land Crusier, Tacoma, 4 Runner, FJ Cruiser, Jeep TJ, Jeep JK, Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, VW Westy, Delica, Pinzgauer, Montero, Suburban and RAM Truck. The off-road capabilities, as well as the recovery equipment, were put to the test for many of these rigs as they extracted themselves from the muddy quagmire that was the general camping area at Mormon Lake, at the end of the long weekend. As event organizer, Roseanne Hanson, said during her opening ceremony speech Friday morning; “There will be a test of the skills you’ve learned on Sunday, as the weather might make things interesting.”

Stay tuned for more Overland Expo coverage coming soon, including all the cool “Big Rigs.”
