Overland Expo 2019

For the past several years, Overland Expo has been one of our favorite events to go to and we look forward to it every May. Each year, we try to bring out something that will really blow peoples socks off. This time, we took the UTV off the Operator, added a stove and rooftop tent, and went full overland mode. Rulebreaker also joined the fun as we traveled with ICON Vehicle Dynamics and Advanced Accessory Concepts from our home in Visalia, California all the way to Flagstaff, Arizona. We had a blast hitting the trails, getting some dirt on the tires, and seeing some of the prettiest scenery this country has to offer.

This year was a bit different. We teamed up with 11 other companies to help create a special section of Overland Expo called Überland. This was a chance to have a small get together and catch up with industry friends. We had live music coming from the deck of the Operator, free tacos, and beer supplied by Ninkasi Brewing. To top it all off, we even had a giveaway for one lucky winner to win ten items, one each from the companies that helped sponsor this incredible event.

Mike Hallmark, our international sales and marketing manager and resident overlanding enthusiast, also held a seminar for overlanders who wanted to learn a bit more about to control the load and sway of their rig. As a seasoned off-roader, Mike shared his knowledge and experience on how to keep an overlanding rig stable and controllable and which sway control products would be best in any given situation.

We are extremely thankful for the help our sponsored companies provided in terms of support and time to make this one of the best Overland Expos we’ve ever had and a very successful Überland. We can’t wait to get to get out there next year and we might be bringing something very special. Stay tuned to our social channels to stay up-to-date on everything Hellwig is doing!
