What's new at Tern Overland

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

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."

DIY Converted Army Truck featured in autoevolution


Nugget features one 300x500, one 450x500 Arctic Tern Window and a full size Arctic Tern Wildlands door.

Christina Mircea of autoevolution gives an overview of Nugget, an expedition rig owned by Tern Overland DIY Customers Isabelle and Parker.


Military trucks can become awesome expedition rigs, with a little imagination, money, and a lot of hard work. But the vehicle you see in these images is like nothing you've ever seen, as it is tech-packed in ways you can't even begin to imagine.

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.

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.

RV windows, van windows

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.


Flarespace introduces their new MEGA Flare

Tern Overland's COO attends Back to Baja Tour


Back to Baja 2022!

What an adventure!  Conceived by Keith of Flarespace and manifested by a team of innovators and visionaries from Flarespace, Storyteller Overland, Mercedes-Benz Vans – Warner, Rec Van Evictus, Van Builders, Owl Vans, CavVans, SEKR, Super 73, Volta and many others.  I was hesitant to attend this van festival in the middle of the Baja mountains in my Lexus GX470 and packing a tent.  Encouraged by some new Storyteller Overland friends, I called Keith for a VIP ticket, packed my gear, and left a week later.  I’m grateful I did because it was amazing.


Convoys of geared up vans and overlanding vehicles gathered at border crossings and traveled together to a dry lakebed snuggled into the mountains West of San Felipe, Baja.  A wagon wheel design with vans and other adventure vehicles filling in the spokes around a center entertainment hub soon took shape and formed a circle of trust and friendship.  Strangers became friends. Conversations segued from basic introductions to business and back to travel adventures and gear.  I don’t know how many times I heard the phrase, it’s such a small world!


COO of Tern Overland, Aimee Higgins in Mexico during the Back to Baja Tour

RV windows, van windows

Everyone pushed their comfort zone and were expanded from the experience shared in this beautiful desert wilderness.  Whether you explored the many curated adventures on your own or went with a guided tour, the local beauty was discovered and enjoyed.  Live music has been sorely missed during Covid and the music each night moved the soul.  Café lights, meteor showers and fireworks lit up the deep, dark night sky.  The nighttime, gale force winds loaded with sand weren’t my favorite, but I embraced the full hurricane experience from the comfort of my green dome hub tent while the vans were rocked gently to sleep.


The Flarespace team and their sponsors coordinated an incredible event with the help of many local officials, businesses, and people from the San Felipe community.  Make sure you stay tuned for next year. You need to make the journey!


I fully support Storyteller Overland’s opinion “The way we see it, it’s not about the journey or the destination… it’s the people you connect with along the way that matter most!”


See ya on the road and hope we can share a story or two!

Tern Overland's COO visits Midwest Overlanding and Off-Road Expo in Springfield, Missouri

It was the 2nd year for the Moore Expo and a variety of high-quality vendors and builders were in attendance such as Storyteller Vans and Global Expedition, Hiker Trailer, Bison Overland, TCTeardrops, Open Range, Cedar Ridge Trailers and many more.

RV windows, van windows

Our own, Chief Operating Officer, Aimee Higgins had a blast getting to know the builders that live and work in the mid-west. The venue was mostly inside which was wonderful during the cold and windy opening day. The large outside section showed more trailers,  vehicles and specialty vendors. She thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Tern Overland OEM/Partner Bison Overland.  Bison Overland custom designed and built Down2Mob's new camper which was launched at the show. Bison Overland's full-size, over cab camper was a beautiful and warm retreat when it was super chilly outside. 

"The innovation we have in this country is impressive and the best place to experience it is at an Expo. There were many things to see and we know the Moore Expo will continue to grow and expand in years to come. Chris Holladay has a fantastic team pulling this show off. Tern Overland will be back next year for sure and recommends the Moore Expo." ~ Aimee Higgins



COO of Tern Overland, Aimee Higgins with Bison Overland Campers Team

The Down2Mob custom camper by Bison Overland Campers is mounted on a Jeep Gladiator and features an Arctic Tern Wildland's door, two Arctic Tern windows and an Arctic Tern cargo door.

Price Announcement

Warm greetings as we move into Spring.


Tern Overland has done its best to keep costs managed since our last price increase August 15, 2021, despite the challenges we have overcome in the last year as David, our CEO, stated in his OEM email in January of this year.  Like you, we are seeing costs increase across the board and the recent spike in fuel costs and the potential for further hikes is a concern as it affects not only our incoming ocean shipments but outgoing freight and ground.

Considering this, we are forced to significantly raise our retail and wholesale prices on May 1, 2022. We are giving our retail and wholesale community a heads up so you can take advantage of the lower prices now. We have a fully stocked warehouse with quick turnaround times for you to stock up at the current prices. Summer is coming, let’s be prepared. Let us know how our Team can be of service. We appreciate your business and partnership.

Out in the Wild With the AT Overland Aterra Truck Camper

by Bryon Dorr, February 14, 2022

The AT Overland Aterra truck camper has become reality.  Our resident overland expert Bryon Dorr got a chance to crawl around it in the wild and came away impressed.

From one of the original overland industry companies in North America comes a new take on the truck camper. The AT Overland Aterra is a unique expedition-quality hard-sided flatbed truck camper that has now made it into production.

Introducing Tern Overland's South African distributor of the Arctic Tern Product Line

Southern Africa Roadtrippers is a campervan and motorhome rental company in South Africa.


The team at SA Roadtrippers believes that life is simply too short not to travel and explore the world around us, which is why they’ve created a fleet of practical and comfortable campervans and motorhomes to help you make your way through South Africa.

"With hundreds of trips under our belt for both ourselves and our customers, we learned valuable lessons in building durable Motorhomes and 4×4 trucks that last in a demanding  vehicle rental fleet traveling in all road conditions in Southern Africa (including Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Swaziland)."

We hope that everyone who gets behind the wheel of  their vehicle build by Southern Africa Roadtrippers, has peace of mind and everything they need to seek adventure and create memories for many years to come.

Arctic Tern Roof Hatch gets 5 star rating from Truck Camper Adventure

Review of the Arctic Tern Roof Hatch.

Ask any truck camper owner and they will tell you that ventilation is important. Not only can proper ventilation keep your camper cooler in the summer, but it can also prevent condensation from accumulating inside in winter. It’s also a great way to remove odors. When it comes to air flow, the roof hatch is a great option. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of junk out there. We had already gone through the hassles of owning a substandard roof hatch in our last camper, so it was important to make the right decision for our new Bundutec Roadrunner truck camper. After looking at all of the options we decided to go with the best, most reliable roof hatch in the market: the Arctic Tern Roof Hatch. This is a review of that product.

The Arctic Tern Roof Hatch is made by the good folks at Tern Overland. Founded in 2017 and based in Prescott, Arizona, Tern Overland is known for making some of the best windows, roof hatches, and doors in the marketplace. The company has grown exponentially since then and now partners with an impressive number of companies as OEM, including Hallmark, AT Overland, Kimbo, and Bison Overland and recently entered the truck camper marketplace with its own outstanding truck camper design called the Aterra. Fortunately, the company will also sell it to DIYers as an aftermarket accessory, which is something that not all manufacturers are willing to do. As a local, Arizona-based company, we knew about Tern Overland and its reputation, so for us it was an easy decision to go with them.

Loki Releases Photos and Specs of New Icarus Prototype

Loki Basecamp just released photos and specifications of its brand-new composite truck camper called the Icarus.

The photos, which were released by the Canadian-based manufacturer today, show an Icarus 8 prototype mounted on a Ford F-350 long-bed truck powered by the Power Stroke 7.3L Scorpion diesel. The company was hoping to reveal the camper at the recent Overland Expo West, but due to supply-chain issues was unable to meet that target date. The camper was first announced to the public in August 2021.

AT Overland Aterra XL: The Composite Camper Revolution Continues


Aterra XL: Ultralight Composite Flatbed Truck Camper

Matt Swartz / October 26th, 2021

I remember Dave Soza leading me from the Tern Overland office into the workshop where he grabbed a scrap piece of composite material as well as a hammer. Placing the panel on the concrete slab between us, he began striking it, repeatedly, clearly putting some serious effort into the demonstration.

He turned to me, heart rate elevated from his effort, and smiled as we examined the material. Despite some superficial indentations, it was largely unharmed despite his efforts. “We’re designing an ultralight truck camper out of this”, he said, with a clever smile flashing across his face.

The Aterra XL flatbed camper is a collaborative effort between two household names (and leaders) in the overland industry: Tern Overland and AT Overland, both based in Prescott, Arizona.

The engineering behind this project was spearheaded by David Soza, the founder of Tern Overland. David is an individual with decades of experience in the world of fabrication and custom automotive projects. He’s been designing unique projects since the 80’s when he traveled around the country in a Honda civic. That experience inspired his first expedition vehicle which subsequently went on to compete in Four Wheeler Magazine’s Top Truck Challenge where it won the category of best engineered.

Gear Junkie names Aterra XL one of the "20 Best Adventure Rigs at Overland Expo West 2021"

by Bryon Dorr, October 4, 2021

Our resident overland expert, Bryon Dorr, scoured the 2021 Overland Expo West event in Flagstaff, Ariz., to find the coolest adventure rigs out there.

I’ve been at every Overland Expo West and East since 2012, living on the road full-time for almost 8 years during that period. So I’ve seen my fair share of cool overland adventuremobiles.

The 20 vehicles below are the overland adventure rigs that caught my eye at this year’s Overland Expo West event. There were cool rigs in every direction I looked, but these are the ones that stood out from the crowd.


AT Overland Aterra Camper

We broke the news about the AT Overland Aterra Camper back in February. Those early renders have now materialized into this truly impressive overland truck camper.

After Overland Expo West, we got a chance to go on an off-road adventure with Mario Donovan, AT Overland Equipment owner and product designer, in this RAM/AEV Aterra truck camper build for a proper deep dive. Full story coming soon.


Truck Camper Adventure rates the 10 Best Truck Camper Rigs at the 2021 Overland Expo West and the Aterra XL took top honors.

Read why the Aterra XL is the leader in the Truck Camper category and see the other campers on the list, including rigs from our partners: Nimbl, Hallmark Campers and Overland Explorer Vehicles.

Tern Overland celebrates success at Overland Expo West 2021

by Raelynn Roderick

The Tern Overland Team returned from a successful weekend at Overland Expo where we unveiled two Aterra Prototypes at this year’s sold out event. Over 28,000 Overlanders from around the world attended the premier overlanding event series which featured 405 exhibitors of Overland, Adventure Travel, Outdoor, Camping & Motorcycle Gear & Equipment.


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 you need.


Our team had a chance to talk to many of our wonderful customers, meet with some of our favorite OEMs and add new OEMs to our amazing lineup.  Our partners at AT Overland debuted the Aterra XL at their booth across the quad.  We had the opportunity to direct attendees to AT Overland’s booth where they could step inside the new Aterra XL and explore all the amazing features it has to offer.  Multiple leaders in the overlanding industry mentioned the Aterra Prototypes and the Aterra XL as the “talk of the expo”.


Our team of overland enthusiasts camped together in the on-site rustic campgrounds amidst the beautiful Flagstaff pine trees at Fort Tuthill County Park where we enjoyed nightly live music by our shop manager and visited with our friends from Teton X.

One of our Class M licensed team members took advantage of the Harley-Davidson Pan America Ride, test driving a Harley Davidson on the scenic roads of Flagstaff.  Other members participated in nightly happy hours sponsored by Toyo Tires, MB Quart, Equipt Expedition Outfitters and more. 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.
