If you’re just getting your feet wet… the rig you have in the driveway/garage is the best “beginner overland vehicle.” But, as is the case with any hobby as you gain experience and mature in the hobby… you’ll probably want to make some changes. Or… maybe you have some disposable income burning a hole in your pocket. Either way, we love talking about adventure vehicles and daydreaming about far flung adventures in that perfect overlander.
Choosing your next, or first, overland vehicle is a huge undertaking. You’ll want something that provides a lot of value and fits your travel style to a tee. We’ve put together some information on what we think are the best options out there. Sure, most of it is pretty subjective… and heavily biased toward Toyotas, but cut us some slack. There will be more added in the future, but before you write that check consider these expedition-capable platforms.
