Despite a slight comedown from the high that the camper and RV industry experienced from the pandemic, there have been some exceptional offerings from brands both big and small in recent months. Benefitting from its surrounding area, Addax, located in the heart of Moab, Utah, has some of the toughest overlanding gear around. Now, it’s sharing its expertise with another brand that knows a thing or two about venturing off the grid, partnering with Jeep on a stealthy truck camper built for versatility.
Debuting in 2018, the Jeep Gladiator has been a favorite among overlanders and custom outfitters for its off-road performance and capabilities. Billing itself as the first modular camper shell integrated with the Gladiator, Addax’s Overlanding Camper, in collaboration with Jeep, emphasizes customization and freedom, which can be underrated when venturing off-grid. With your limitations tested, you’ll want a camper that can preemptively maximize your comfort and convenience.
Painted in a monochrome matte black, the overlander utilizes Addax’s patent-pending M-3 Mod System, which precludes any drill assembly requirements and features a fully retractable truck cap cover and a removable 175-pound rooftop tent for when you want to drive the truck around town during the week. Feeding into the clamshell underneath by opening up in 12-inch intervals, the hard-shell aluminum-framed tent up top gives you 6’4” of headroom — much larger than your average hard-shell tent — and has space for a queen-sized mattress. The pass-through from the clamshell to the tent is crucial for maximizing your space and giving you more freedom of movement. Other features include solar panels, integrated LED lighting, and an adjustable-speed exhaust fan, with upgrades including an interior kitchen buildout and a 270-degree awning.
The base MSRP of the Addax x Jeep Gladiator Overlanding Camper is $4,000 and goes up from there. Head over to Addax’s website to join the waitlist now. It’s expected to arrive in the spring of 2024.
