Dirt Every Day: Episode 26 - Traveling the Country in an Off-Road Camper with Mans Best Friends

Hitting the open road in an off-road rig with a comfy cozy camper is probably a dream for many of us especially if you get to bring along a loyal friend for those long road trips between camp spots. Dogs have long been considered man’s best friend because through thick and thin, they’re always there for you and have your back. Heck if you’re not paying attention sometimes, they’ll have your lunch too. It’s no wonder you see people heading out on the road in their RV or campers with their four-legged friends in search of fun, peace and new sights.

On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams of Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road heads out on a road trip with his dogs Batman, Baxter and Lulu in a 2014 GMC Sierra Crew Cab that he borrowed from Rancho Suspension and outfitted with their latest lift kit. The Rancho GMC Sierra sits taller than a standard Sierra, in fact tall enough to clear a set of 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud Terrain KM2 tires which as you’ll see will give this truck way better capability in the dirt and since Fred’s plan was to mount a slide in camper in the bed, getting to remote camp spots off the grid should be easy as pie.

You might be wondering why Fred would decide to go on a road trip to try to relive the essence of John Steinbeck’s ‘Travels with Charley: In Search of America’ and while we can try to explain to you why you would want to live out in the wilderness with your dogs and your four-wheel-drive camper, the simplest reason is, why not?!

Check out the video of what it’s like to travel the open road while living out of your truck and camper and hanging out with a couple of furry four-legged friend in the great outdoors!
