Daily Driver 


What do you like most about your rig? 

Having the camper ready at a moment's notice. Not only do we keep all of the bedding in the camper (Hest Dually Wide mattress, two Hest pillows, Down Comforter, sleeping bags and a throw blanket), we can fit all of our camera gear, and camp equipment without any sacrifice.

On your average weekend adventure, what is the gear set up you bring with you? How did you navigate gear storage needs into your rig set up?

We feel like we have the rig dialed to a point where we aren’t fighting for space or what we want to bring. Our essentials are our camera gear, clothes/toiletries, camp kitchen, Mountain House meals and definitely a propane heater. That way we can camp at a moment's notice with food, heat, a toothbrush and a sense of adventure.

Any custom details? 

Our favorite detail of the truck is the stow-flex hatch that comes in the new generation of Colorado’s. We like to keep it full of Mountain Housemeals, our Jetboil and a little thing of butane.

Coolest place you’ve taken your rig to?

We’ve only owned the truck for about six months as of now, but we would say our favorite trip was driving up to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Minnesota. We were only about 3 miles from the border of Canada and just absolutely surrounded by luscious greenery, thousands of lakes, and the calls of loons echoing through the woods. 

Any projects in the pipeline to get your rig even more adventure ready? 

Well we are heading down for our annual Baja Mexico roadtrip in February. We are spending all of our free time right now building the rest of the truck out. Trying to have a drawer/storage system in the back, bumpers, new suspension and some auxiliary lighting in two months. Quite a tall order haha.

Biggest challenge in your build out?

We would definitely say buying a new generation vehicle is cool until you realize how behind companies are in making new products for them. We’re antsy to build it out!

Tips for others looking to do the same to their vehicle?

Just take it one step at a time. We think too many people are chomping at the bit to build their rigs out… you have to enjoy the journey! All the parts. We always say: it’s not an adventure until something goes wrong.
