Four Wheel Campers was launched in Colorado in 1972. At the time, vans had limitations, so a hard-sided camper that could fit on a Scout, Blazer, or Bronco was designed and built. The next evolution was to reduce weight via a pop-up camper and develop them to fit in and on standard-sized pickup trucks.
In October 2016, Four Wheel Campers began the fifth and latest ownership chapter. Since our 1972 beginnings, the company has been renewed with fresh energy and ideas every ten years or so. Coupled with key people who have been with the company for up to 17 years, we think this latest change has the platform to further enhance the company and its products.
The pop-up design reduces weight and wind resistance. The aluminum frame reduces weight, increases durability, and eliminates water damage to wood. Since the beginning, this decision has resulted in a camper that can withstand a gauntlet of off-roading abuse, decade after decade. This has translated to happy campers and high resale values!
Since 1989 Four Wheel Campers has been in Woodland, CA, where it remains today. (Visit their impressive facility and showroom.) Back then, “Overlanding” referred to what was happening in Australia. By the mid-2000s, the Four Wheel Campers product was a natural fit as an Overlanding lifestyle began gaining traction in the United States. The Overlanding market and community became our first specific, definable market. Over the years, we have been fortunate to be closely involved with this dynamic group of people. As they have explored increasingly challenging terrain, their journeys have nudged us to continually improve.
