You’ve seen the concept vehicles. You’ve watched the YouTube videos, and you’ve been bitten by the Truck Camping bug. If you’ve decided to jump on the Truck Camping bandwagon and convert your pick-up truck into the ultimate camping experience, you’ve come to the right place. Auto One Glass and Accessories is the perfect place for all of your pick-up truck transformation needs. Before we take the first steps on the journey to camping and hiking freedom as a nomad, let’s take a quick detour and discuss what Truck Camping is all about.
About Truck Camping
Truck Camping, the overlanding craze, has been a fixture at all the major auto accessories shows since 2016. The trend is all about taking your pick-up truck, Jeep or SUV to the seldom visited places. Enjoying the outdoors without pulling or hauling a large camper. Everything you need for the camping experience is right on your truck.
This year, Auto One attendees to CES, the Keystone Big Show, and the Michigan International Auto Show (MIAS) saw more truck camping accessories than ever before. The trend is so popular, Ford created the Expedition Timberline to highlight the off-grid options. At MIAS, Gentex has displayed its custom truck camping rig. Both are very impressive builds.
The potential for all the things you can modify on your pick-up is exciting (and a little daunting). We asked the experts at Auto One what they would add to their pick-up trucks to enjoy truck camping. They made us a sketch and a list.
