At this year’s Overland Expo, there were some very impressive campers. GXV has made an honest attempt to duplicate a few of the concepts of The Turtle Expedition’s Tortuga Camper, but we still think it needs to be smaller to follow the roads we travel. Close but no cigar. On the final day, some of the big rigs ran the off-road training course. Perhaps one of the more interesting was a M109 shop van mounted on a M35A2 6X6. It came through the frame twisters gracefully.
The latest GXV Turtle is a nice looking expedition camper, but we wish they would make a smaller version.
Side by side, our own Tortuga Expedition Camper is significantly lower, narrower and shorter.
Traffic by The Turtle V was steady all day, and many commented that the overall design of the Tortuga Camper was still the best they had seen at the show.
