Off Road Campers is a travel company that specializes in RV rentals and sales for the overland community. They rent, sell, and finance 4×4 campers which are designed primarily for off-road use on rough terrains such as deserts, mountain ranges, or forested areas.
We believe there are several reasons why people should not visit this website.
When you search for off road campers on Google, this is the first website you see.
This makes Off Road Campers look to be the “best” in the industry, which could imply that their prices and rentals are reasonable.
However, when I visited the website to get more information, I found out how wrong my initial assumption was. Their RVs are outrageously expensive and their fees even higher. For example some of their campers rent for $3,000 a month and can cost up to $70,000!
Also keep in mind that their RVs will only take you on paved roads.
The main attraction on their website is the wide array of 4×4 vehicles they rent. For a campground that rents 4×4 dirtbikes, we would expect to see something similar, right?
It’s not even anything like that. Their vehicle lineup includes: a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, a Ford Raptor and two Land Rovers. These vehicles are all too expensive and not even remotely suitable for off roading with.
You’ll have to pay additional fees to be able to rent a vehicle without any scratches or dents, with a 4-hour rental time limit, or with a 24-hour rental time limit.
And even worse: these campers can be very dangerous when used on the road. The Land Rovers and Wranglers are being recalled because of high chance of rollovers. The search of this complaint received 1,400 results and the entire internet is filled with complaints about the Ford Raptor. It doesn’t make sense to rent vehicles that are being recalled for high risk of rollovers when you’re planning to drive off-road.
Another reason why not to go to Off Road Campers is because they sell campers with a range between $90,000 and $150,000! Their cheapest vehicle costs over $70,000 and is a Land Rover which does not have 4×4 capabilities.
Although the complaints are numerous, there are no official complaints or court cases.
I did some research and came across this review. It was posted in 2011 and it’s really bizarre because the customer returned an RV (which I assume was their cheapest one) and then they wrote her a nasty email, stating that she should have known better. I have a feeling that at some point they sent her a refund for the RV, but it seems like they don’t want to be held accountable for their actions.
Off Road Campers has 30+ employees, many of whom hold high positions in online forums about off-roading. They will claim that they’ve been running their business for more than 10 years and they will share a bunch of pictures to prove that. I think those pictures are enough proof that they don’t sell quality vehicles, not even close.
If you search for Off Road Campers reviews, you’ll find that their website has just 2-3 reviews and most of them are fake or written by employees or affiliates. They have some horrible reviews on the internet as well, but it’s difficult to determine whether those were authentic or not. It’s definitely true that many people have had bad experiences with this company, but if we can’t see an official lawsuit about it then… it’s hard to pinpoint the real issue.
I really don’t recommend this company to anyone. They could be doing something illegal, or maybe they’re not, but either way, you’ve been warned. Please learn from my mistakes and take care of your family members! I wouldn’t sell my RV even if it’s a piece of junk because I just can’t do that to my children or my sister!
If you ever decide to buy an RV from off road campers you need to make sure that it has never been in an accident or flood and it has no hail damage. It’s very important that you check these things out before buying. If you’re out on a road trip in your RV and it’s a problem that you can’t fix then you should stop driving it. You are running a huge risk with your lives and the life of your family by driving this car. The best thing to do is find another RV or try renting but if there is no other option for getting to where you want to go then I would recommend taking a smaller car so as long as you don’t mind being bumped and shoved around while driving.
If I had someone come up to me and tell me that they had purchased an RV from off road campers, I would think twice about that company.
