The Scout Olympic Camper Is A Mobile Off-Grid Basecamp For Your Pickup

May 26, 2020

Category: Gear

While pickup-bed campers are nothing new, the market has grown to be increasingly competitive in recent years, forcing manufacturers to deliver novel, envelope-pushing designs if they wish to stand out amongst the sea of competitors. And that’s exactly what Scout has done with its newly-unveiled Olympic Camper — a lightweight, ultra-versatile pickup-bed shelter designed with impressive overall simplicity.

Powered by an integrated 160W flexible mono-crystalline solar panel and portable 1,500W Lithium battery, the Olympic sports an energy-saving gravity-fed water system with built-in filtration, removable water storage, an optional propane fireplace, large awning, and a dining table, fridge, chairs, and stove that can all be removed and used outside the camper. An alcove double bed, popup roof tent, and four-person dinette that also converts into a double bed gives the camper the ability to comfortably sleep 6, or provide enough storage for two or three people and several months worth of their gear and supplies. Its lightweight also enables it to hugely save on gas compared to heavier campers, too. Though Scout designed the Olympic, each unit is built in Yakima, Washington by seasoned off-road camper and vehicle constructors, Adventure Manufacturing. Starting at $19,980, the Scout Olympic Camper is available for preorder now.

Purchase: $19,980+
