2020 OEV Camp-X :: Featured Classified

2020 OEV Camp-X :: Featured Classified

As I write this, I’m dealing with my third engine failure in three years. As a full-timer, I depend on my rolling home, so it has been a major setback. I’ve had to build an entirely new vehicle at considerable expense and stress just to get me through the coming months. This scenario is just one of several that indicate why a truck and slide-in camper/habitation box combo is one of the most desirable for travel. Should mechanical disaster strike, you can borrow, rent, or buy a cheap preowned truck to continue your journey. Further still, it allows you to switch up your setup painlessly should you fancy an upgrade and can be removed if your truck is also a work vehicle or daily driver. The vast majority of your investment should be focused on the camper rather than the vehicle, and, to this end, Overland Explorer Vehicles (OEV) is considered by many to be the best in the business. Cue today’s 2020 Camp-X 6.85-feet, which showcases a well-appointed interior as standard but also enjoys a number of desirable factory options and aftermarket upgrades (all custom additions installed professionally by Offgrid 4×4). The seller is also offering the Aluma-Tray upper-side boxes for the Camp-X for an additional $4,000. At $43,000, this camper represents an impressive value when you consider the latest model (rebranded as the Back Country) has a starting price of $48,595. OEV is also a favorite with the Expedition Portal and Overland Journal team after Senior Editor Ashley Giordano enjoyed a behind-the-scenes Factory Tour. Ashley concluded: “More than once, I’ve heard Overland Explorer Vehicles campers described as ‘over-engineered,’ and it’s easy to understand why. Although I haven’t spent days or weeks living out of a Camp-X or HBE, my initial impression is that they’ve been built to last.” So, if you’re in the market for a no-expense-spared camper that’s more akin to a sailing yacht than a truck camper, look no further. 

From the Seller:

This is the camper. It’s not cheap, but it’s the best slide-in camper on the market—adventure-ready with all the upgrades for practical and comfortable use. It is loaded with awesome upgrades inside and out, as well as the best factory options, and is in great shape and ready for its new owner. I bought this camper two years ago used and in exceptional condition. We added upgrades and toured all over the West Coast (USA) without issue. It is meticulously clean and maintained (I’m a clean freak). I love this camper and brand and am selling to upgrade to a different model camper. It is ready to drop in and go. At this price, with the boxes, you could buy an Aluma Tray and be at the same price as a new Camp-X (now called the Backcountry).” 

OEV Camp-X

The Camp-X (since rebranded as the Back Country) is a 6.85-foot, pop-top, slide-in camper “designed to conquer rugged terrains.” It’s intended for full-size trucks and will fit 1/2-, 3/4-, and 1-ton trucks. Despite weighing just 1,200 pounds (dry weight, not including jacks), it provides a generous interior living space and will sleep up to four people. The build quality is exceptional and offers four-season comfort thanks to OEV’s Gen 3 composite floor, walls, and roof. Inside, the Camp-X showcases a built-for-purpose interior with marine-grade fabrics, a Dometic Seitz side window, structural aluminum interior cabinetry, high-traffic-grade vinyl flooring, a C-shaped dinette that converts into a bed, king bed extension, screen door, locking roof supports, and much more. Check out the original forum listing for more details.

There’s a lot to choose from when selecting a rec-utility ATV. Do you need 4WD? Will you be using it primarily for work or trail riding? How much power do you need? Do you need a youth model or two so the kids can tag along to help with chores? We’ve prepared a list of several ATVs from leading manufacturers, and each model has anywhere from one to seven trim levels.
