When you live on the road, home is where you park it. Just ask Will Enterline and the Shack, his mobile basecamp. A 2016 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab V4, The Shack spends most of its time roaming the high alpine of the Rocky Mountains and is most comfortable connecting powder turns and epic camp sites. Hit the open road with our newest addition to the HEST Rigs We Dig series.

Is this your daily driver or getaway car?

Daily driver, just like a 106mm underfoot 183cm ski. 

What do you like most about your rig? 

I love how simple it is. It is kinda dorky looking, but it gets the job done and is super roomy for one person. I couldn’t imagine having more space—I would not know what to do with it. 

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?

I am lucky enough to fully live in my rig. This winter I have gone from New Mexico to Montana chasing snow and skiing big lines. The gear I constantly have are: skis, boots, ski layers, clothes (7 shirts, 2 pants, underwear sock), midlayers, helmet, goggles, San Util backpack. electric cooler, kitchenware, 7 gallon water jug, 500 watt battery, hats, sleeping bag, heated blanket (Ignik), Ignik FireCan and propane tank.  

I don’t have much space but I make it work. Storage is super important, everything has a spot and when things are in their spot, the rig runs smoothly. I use my truck access cab and a custom shelf build for storage as well as a custom drawer system for clothes and accessories.

Any custom details? 

I love my little power shelf, which I use for my batteries and solar panel.  I also love my diesel heater because it's mandatory. 

Coolest place you’ve taken your rig to?

My favorite turns of the year had to be on Teton Pass February 27 - March 2.  That's all thanks to the Shack.

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

I'm hoping to live in Canada for next winter so gearing up for some proper cold. 

Biggest challenge in your build out?

The diesel heater, no doubt. There just isn't much information on them anywhere so it was a pretty tough learning curve for it to work properly. If anyone is thinking about installing one feel free to reach out, I have a lot of knowledge about a very niche type of heater. 

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

Take your time with it. Make sure you have properly set the time needed to do it right the first time. But other than that, be patient—it's a constant give and take and requires upkeep. With that said it is such a fun way of life and is something that people should do. I’ve met so many cool people along my travels and I'm stoked to run it back.  Oh, also, get a good sleeping bag.
