Road Trips, Destinations, Camping Etiquette and Camp Recipes
Some of the best places in Montana are located down bumpy, dusty, dirty gravel and dirt roads. We started Paradise Overland to provide an alternative to typical car and RV rentals. We provide well-maintained SUVs and trucks with four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and tires designed for non-highway driving. Not only can you get to where you want to go, but you aren't worried about getting stuck along the way. Two of our vehicles have significant clearance for those really out-of-the-way places.
Our vehicles are perfect for all types of campers, but especially for those who think RV-ing is overkill. We think having a nice, cushy bed at night away from the critters is pretty amazing, but we also think you should only bring what you really need. Our vehicles and camp setups make sure there is still room for all your adventuring gear while providing the essentials for living and comfort.
We compiled our camping essentials list based on 30 years of camping experience from lightweight backpacking to everything-including-the-kitchen-sink car camping. There are so many cool gadgets out there these days it can get a bit exhausting to know what is worth it and what isn't. We have done our research to provide upgraded gear where it actually makes a difference and simple yet, high quality options for the rest.
Ease of Use
When your car rental comes with a bed, kitchen, and other essentials it makes it that much quicker to get to your destination. Swing by the grocery store then head out! Once you are to camp, setup takes 10 minutes max and after a few nights you may even get it down to five. Sounds pretty great right?
At the end of your trip, everything gets dropped off with us and you don't have to deal with the worst part of camping: cleaning and putting everything away!
