Thanks for giving me a great giggle this morning. I looked at the first set of pictures and thought "What kind of idiot stores their porta potty on it's side?" and then realized the picture was rotated. Looks like you are enjoying your rig well. Welcome to the fold.

Thanks for sharing. We love Okracoke with our camper. Perfect for the NP campground there.


Make sure you pressure wash all under that truck and camper after driving on the beach. Get the salt off.

Congratulations on your new shell


Nice rig. Nice family pictures. Camping on the sand and NOT getting stuck!!! ....Wow.


We were in Kitty Hawk last year. I'm a plane guy although I'm only licensed to fly "fixed wing radio control models". Beautiful beaches. Outer banks are gorgeous. We were there in May after spending a week in Washington DC - another wonderful place to visit.


Hope you and your family have many, many, pleasant camping journeys.

Congratulations on the camper. I recently got mine and love it.


Hope to head to the east coast when I retire. Loved the Outerbanks the one time I was there. Need to go back and see the lighthouse in Duck when it is open.

Awesome camper.

where do you live in NC? we are in chapel hill and are planning a trip to the coast in Oct or Nov. We have 2 fantastic fans, no ac, so we are going to wait until it is cooler.


Thanks for the slide show.

Awesome Camper! Thanks for the photos and concur that the guys at mainline Overland are great!

Do you mind sharing where are you were able to camp and sleep on the beach? I need to add that to the calendar for next year with my crew.

Thanks for your interest. We are in the Lake Norman area and I'm trying to find primitive camping places around here, maybe the Linville Gorge and Uwharrie? Yes, I think it will be more pleasant in the fall or even Winter. I like being at the beach but am not going to sunbathe. 

It looks like the main places to do it are where we were, Freeman Park near Carolina Beach and the Core Banks, a ferry accessible only place which is wide open and VERY primitive. At Ocracoke you have to be at the campground, but its right over the dune from the beach and very easy even mid Summer to find a place on the beach where you cannot see other people.  There are many miles of driveable beach but few places you can camp.
