What's new at Tern Overland

Sharing with you what's new and exciting at Tern Overland


It is no secret that we at Tern have a super soft spot for the Aterra Campers, and for you guys that don't know, the topper version of the Aterra got its debut at this year's Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, AZ.

"For those who want to have the exceptional Aterra experience and quality without converting your truck to a flatbed, the new Aterra Topper shell for a 6.5ft full-size truck bed is here! This lightweight yet durable honeycomb composite topper shell is the perfect canvas for outdoor aficionados and the DIY Overland truck-building enthusiast to create the ultimate habitation system. Priced competitively with other makes and models of pop-up topper shells, the Aterra Topper bridges the gap between the pop-up...

"Our people are the magic that makes this epic story worth telling," said CEO Jeffrey Hunter.

"Here at Storyteller Overland, we've always known that our company is fortunate to have a passionate team full of hardworking innovators and driven business people. We're excited to announce that Storyteller Overland has been designated a 2023 Best Places To Work by Birmingham Business Journal."


BBJ's Best Places to Work program uses survey data from employees at some of Birmingham, Alabama's top employers and celebrates those employers who come out on top in their categories. Storyteller Overland was one of ten companies in the Large (100 to 249 employees) category to receive this accolade.


"Through all seasons of Storyteller's rapid ramp up and growth – the good, the bad, and the just plain weird – I am beyond grateful for and proud of how our entire team has remained calm, cool, creative, and...

It is no secret that we love our OEM/Partners. Especially the ones that go above and beyond on what they do, how they do it, and WHY they do it.

In the Spotlight: Pete Gordon’s Rossmonster Baja Expedition Truck Camper Rig


Check out this new article by Mello Mike at Truck Camper Adventure!



Last year, Truck Camper Adventure announced the release of the Rossmönster Overland Baja. Off all the releases in 2021 and 2022, this is one that really got us excited. Unlike the majority of chassis-mounted expedition rigs, the Baja can be mounted on a half-ton, 3/4-ton, and a one-ton chassis, meaning it’s exceptionally light. Another feature that really stands out is the actuating hard-shell top that can be lowered, making the Baja more aerodynamic and nimble off-road. At camp, the raised hard-top creates over a foot of additional height, while at the same time providing better insulation than canvas pop-tops. The big benefit, of course, is that the camper can be entered through either the rear door or through an insulated pass-through from the cab of the truck. At the 2022 Overland Expo Mountain West, we were able to get a tour of Pete Gordon’s Baja. The Arizona native was proud of his brand-new rig and we don’t blame him. We would be too if we owned this amazing-looking rig. What makes his Rossmonster Baja special? Pete Gordon explains in this exclusive interview.

Truck Camper Design With AT Overland Founder Mario Donovan


Check out this new article by Mello Mike at Truck Camper Adventure!



Few people in overlanding are more recognizable that AT Overland founder, Mario Donovan. He’s been involved in the hobby since 2000 and founded AT Overland soon after that. If you know anything about the history of overlanding, you know that this is a good 10 years before the hobby really took off. Indeed, Mario has watched the hobby grow from a fringe activity to one that is now recognized worldwide. Here in North America, Mario has led the charge because the man knows his stuff. Aside from running AT Overland and expanding its reach with nationwide dealerships, Mario also provides a full consultative service to save his clients money, time, and frustration. To learn more about truck camper design and his equipment preferences, Mario was kind enough to answer a few questions.

Tern Overland Arctic Tern Windows and Doors Raise Bar in Hot Market


Check out this new article by Mello Mike at Truck Camper Adventure!



"In this week’s feature article, we shine the spotlight on our friends at Tern Overland. We love this Arizona-based company for two reasons: the quality products and superb customer service. Founded in 2017 and owned by David Soza and Aimee Higgins, you won’t find an easier group of people to work with than Tern Overland. The company specializes in making doors, roof hatches, and windows and the newcomer is already one of the best in the business with over 100 manufacturers using its products as OEM. But you don’t have to be a manufacturer to buy Arctic Tern products; DIYers can buy their products too. To learn more about this exciting new company, we spoke with David and Aimee."

14 Amazing Off-Road Camper Trailers You Can Drag to the Hinterlands

Monica Gonderman - Writer; Eleonor Segura - Writer; Manufacturer - Photographer

Jun 15, 2022


AntiShanty AS-1 Limited

AntiShanty trailers are made in North Logan, Utah. The company makes rigid-roof (RR) and A-frame (AS) trailers in Base, Plus, Pro, and Limited models, ranging in price from $37,900 to $73,900. The decked-out Limited A-frame off-road camper trailer weighs about 2,650 pounds and is about 17.5 feet long. It has a spec sheet that's even longer, but here are some highlights: six Arctic Tern double-pane insulated windows, four Expion 360 100Ah Lithium batteries, a Molle panel system, LED-upgraded interior lighting, LED below-trailer ambient lights, 300W mounted solar panel, 100W portable solar panel, Go Power SP2000 inverter, a Dometic power auto awning, Timbren suspension, American Racing 17-inch wheels, and BFGoodrich KO2s tires (you choose the size, but why not go with 35s?). We're sold on the name alone: AntiShanty. RV windows, van windows

Boreas Campers EOS-12

Boreas off-road camper trailers are built in Denver, Colorado. Previously called the XT-12, the $74,990 EOS-12 Hybrid has a menacing demeanor to go along with its 20 inches of ground clearance and auto-leveling Cruisemaster XT air suspension. It holds up to 40 gallons of fresh water and 25 gallons of graywater, and has a three-burner Furion cooktop, stainless-steel sink, wet bath with a cassette toilet and shower, Trauma fridge/freezer, permanent Queen mattress, 270-degree awning, and more. No wood was used in the making of the trailer, and a pop-up roof allows for 6.5 feet of standing room. There are plenty of add-ons, too, including additional Lithium batteries to accompany the 200aH unit included.  RV windows, van windows

TetonX Hybrid

Based in Saint George, Utah, TetonX offers three bed configurations (including an add-on bunk bed option) for its off-road Hybrid camper trailer. Dubbed the "compact powerhouse," the TetonX Hybrid features a U-shaped kitchen, a bathroom, and a dinette set, and it can fit a bed up to 76-by-76 inches. Persons over 6 feet tall can comfortably stand up inside thanks to a generous 6.6 feet of standing room. Storage includes a Rotopax gas can, roof basket, tongue box, and interior compartments. Power-wise, it has a Group U1 AGM battery, a Noco Genius1 one-bank 4-amp charger, and a Noco Shore Plug. It also comes pre-wired for the portable Zamp Solar power system.  RV windows, van windows

Tern Overland's Partners AEONrv and TetonX make Outside's list of

The Sweetest Adventure Rigs from Overland Expo West 2022

We tracked down everything from old-school DIY projects to cutting-edge all-electric builds.

2022 AeonRV

Jim Ritchie (pictured with his wife Michelle Ritchie) and his co-founder Lars Severin, of AeonRV, are both Silicon Valley veterans with lots of tech experience. So when they set out to start a modern, off-road RV company, they made sure their designs pushed the envelope. Built on top of a capable Ford AWD Transit chassis, their rigs have too many specs to list in one paragraph but highlights include: a construction process that relies on high-strength glue (which allows the camper to flex while off-roading), an average of R-15 insulation throughout the camper (which makes it highly efficient), a full kitchen, bathroom, queen-size bed, and a host of soon-to-be announced tech upgrades that will utilize app-based control of everything from the air conditioner to the fridge.  RV windows, van windows

Teton X Hybrid Trailer

Josh and Viki Africk have two small kids—a two-year-old and a three-month-old—but still wanted to get out and explore so they bought this Teton X trailer. Thanks to a special suspension design, the trailer can be raised for off-road use, lowered for on-road use (better gas mileage), and also leveled at camp. It’s about the size of a normal teardrop trailer, but comes with a pop-top feature so that both adults can get in and walk around. Their trailer also comes with an exterior slide-out kitchen, which saves additional inside space.  RV windows, van windows


Tern Overland celebrates success at Overland Expo West 2022

by Raelynn Roderick and Taidyme Mae

The Tern Overland Team returned from another successful weekend at Overland Expo where we showcased our Aterra Prototype and a Sprinter Van, featuring Arctic Tern windows, at this year’s sold-out event. This year we also unveiled our Expo Trailer based on the design and footprint of the Aterra XL. 2022 marked Tern Overland's 4th year as an exhibitor at the Overland Expo West event.


Over 28,000 Overlanders from around the world attended the premier overlanding event series which featured 406 exhibitors of Overland, Adventure Travel, Outdoor, Camping​, and Motorcycle Gear & Equipment.  Of these 406, over 21 Tern Overland Partners exhibited our products, and more Arctic Tern Products were scattered around in other rigs and DIY builds. 


Overland Expo is the only event that offers the scope of classes taught by the world’s leading experts alongside a professional-level trade show that brings together all the camping and vehicle and motorcycle equipment and services.


Our team had a chance to talk to many of our wonderful customers, meet with some of our amazing OEMs and add new OEMs to our incredible lineup. 

We attended educational workshops and nightly happy hours hosted by Black Rhino, Battleborn Batteries, and Toyo Tires and attended the sold-out Rider Justice Moto Party.


Our team of overland enthusiasts camped together in the on-site rustic campgrounds amidst the beautiful Flagstaff pine trees at Fort Tuthill County Park. "Food and camping" topped the list of our team's favorite things to do at Expo.

​The Tern Overland team members took advantage of Expo Specials offered by vendors for their Overland Rigs and camping set ups, including the famous Poolahoop! Our team gathered ideas and made plans to purchase new equipment and gear for their adventure rigs. 

We all had a great time and returned home with t-shirts, stickers, patches, equipment for our adventure vehicles, and accessories for our next camping adventure.


Thank you to all who stopped by to visit with us.  If you would like information on joining our team of OEMs, please visit our Partners page for more information or email us at

AT Overland’s Aterra XL Flatbed Camper

Ashley Giordano / April 29th, 2022

While I’m tucked into the warm camper bed, the wind howls outside. I don’t have to worry about an unattended ground tent liberating itself from the ground and tumbling away, nor any rooftop tent canvas flapping. I’m enveloped in a motionless cocoon, like a caterpillar protected against the elements. Ponderosa pines sway in the wind outside the portal window, stars shining bright during the cold night. I chuckle to myself, smiling in the dark. So, this is what it’s like to sleep in a hard-sided camper. What luxury.

For the past 20 years, Arizona-based AT Overland Equipment has offered solutions such as truck toppers, campers, storage accessories, and more for off-road and overland enthusiasts alike. There is no doubt the company has been foundational to the North American overland market; the popularity of the AT truck topper line is evident both online and in the wild.
