Overland Expo 2022

 In Prescott, Arizona, 2009, an ambitious group of pioneering travelers gathered for a new event that would become the legendary Overland Expo.

Before that first event, roof top tents and Overlanding itself, were virtually unknown in North America. Much of the original expedition equipment was around, and car-camping was not new, but “you need to know  the guys at AUTOHOME USA” to get a roof top tent back then.

Less than 890 people attended that first event along with a small handful of pioneering companies including AUTOHOME.   These are the founding fathers of Overland outfitting in North America.

The sharing of packing & planning tips were overshadowed by the tales some of these travelers told, with many nights spent in Autohome tents across thousands of miles traveled by 4WD in Australia, Africa, and tracks that would eventually become the core overland routes of the Americas.

Created and organized by Jonathan and Roseann Hanson, that first Overland Expo was the impetus for the now pervasive Overland markets.  13 Years later this Expo has grown into a series of shows that draws hundreds of companies, and tens of thousands of eager enthusiasts together to share a passion for travel and adventure. 

Thank you to all our friends and customers who visit us at Overland Expo and keep us engaged with stories of travels and adventures using Autohome Tents throughout the Americas and beyond.
