Lancaster, California based Lance Camper Manufacturing Corporation just announced that it will be attending the Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Arizona, May 18-20 for the fourth consecutive year.
In Lance’s display this year will be a brand-new build—developed, owned and operated by Aaron Wirth of Wirth Exploring and Ninkasi Brewery. Recently featured here on Truck Camper Adventure, this fully customized AEV Ram 3500 features a chassis-mounted (custom flat bed/utility box mounted) Lance 825 Truck Camper along with modifications that make it one of the most off-road capable truck camper rigs ever built.
Lance will also have the Lance/Hellwig “Rule Breaker” available for test drives at this year’s show. This custom-built rig features a Nissan Titan XD Diesel and a Lance 650 Truck Camper, one of Lance’s lightest and best selling truck campers.
For the Overland Expo, Lance Camper will be hosting a Pre-Happy Hour in their display (booth F5) on Saturday, May 19th from 4-5pm, featuring live entertainment by singer/songwriter Natalie Gelman as well as free brats and beverages. Lance will also be giving away an Orion 45 Cooler ($449 retail value) to one lucky winner over the weekend, so be sure to stop by to chat, chill and see why Overlanding in a Lance camper is the way to go!
Thanks, Jefe. Glad you found the feature article to your liking. Aaron’s rig is pretty impressive.
After our 10 day trip to the Anza Borrego Desert last month, we began pouring over the pix and stats in search of a new camper to replace our relic of decades gone by. We really like our Lance 165-s/x-cab, but it’s getting long in the tooth and has been through the wars. The only camper that is similar is the updated Lance 825. What a coincidence that you would have a feature on this very model. We looked at so many campers that had what we wanted, but were oh-so-heavy for the size, or had features that we did not want. It is timely that you posted this rollout as it is the exact camper that we’ve been looking for..to no avail, I might add. It has the exact same footprint as our ’98 – 165-s, but better everything. Aaron has chosen well and has a few praiseworthy new twists, like the flatbed with storage and the spare tire finally in an accessible yet out of the way location; always a headache. jefe
