Overland Expo West 2017

The “Gathering of the Tribe” of Overlanders once again came together this May 12-14,  for Overland Expo West. This year it was held at a new venue, Fort Tuthill County Recreation Park, in Flagstaff AZ.  Many of the people we spoke with felt the new venue created a less intimate and more commercial vibe than previous years, however it also provided must needed and ample room for vendors, demos and camping amid the pines. Hey change is inevitable as our little industry flourishes and in our opinion it was a great event. Here are some highlights of the show in the form of a photo journal.  This is simply meant to give you a taste of the weekend and a brief view of various products that were showcased.  We highly recommend you go check it out yourself in 2018, and TAP into Adventure!

Here are a few cool products that caught our eye:

The new Borah Wheel from AEV with it’s  beadlock or non-beadlock capability.

The Deadman Recovery Anchor:

Aluminess new product: The Bike Rack Swinger.
