BO #19 Find the Right Overland Set UP with Michael Sweet

In this episode Benji and Jay have a great conversation with Michael Sweet about his various overland builds and sharing his lessons learned with trying to find the right overland set up.

Michael and his wife love overlanding and have a lot of experience and have experimented with a variety of builds. They have been off-road/overland camping with a few RVs and a variety of other trailers for years in including a 24ft travel trailer, an A-Frame trailer, bed rack buildout, backpacking gear in the truck, and have been throughout Colorado, Wyoming, Arkansas and other areas. With tons of lessons learned from those, he built an overland/offroad trailer (now sold), built a slide-in camper (also sold), and a wedge-style truck camper currently on my Canyon.
