Bison Overland Campers

100acre

Adventurist
Hey Y’all, is anyone here running with a Bison Overland camper? I just put a down payment on a Flatbed shell model to fit an 8’ bed with the departure angle. I’ll be mounting it on my 2021 F350 DRW XL. I realize that DRW isn’t the best for Over-landing, but I am seeing this on more modern rigs as well. I mainly have the DRW to haul my excavator around town. Sure, it’d be nice to have a SRW but with the current vehicle market prices being what they are, I’m going to try and work with what I have and hope the prices will drop sooner than later. Right now I’d really like to know if anybody else on here is running with a similar camper or one made by Bison Overland? What did you have done to build out the inside and outside? One great thing is being that I am 6’9” tall, they are doing a custom interior height of either a 6’11” or 7’. This will be a hard sided camper. I am planning on doing a really nice build out on the inside but I wanted to see what other people might be running with. Thank you for your time, have a pleasant and wonderful rest of your day. This is my current set up and what I’m hoping it will evolve into more or less… The last photograph is of a rig that drove through my town here in North Idaho recently and a friend sent me the picture of it otherwise I would’ve flagged the guy down and begged him to show me the inside. Lol

Lee at Labyrinth Overland is partnering with Drew at Bison Overland and will soon be setting up shop in Fruita Colorado. He’s setting up shop with Travis at Element outdoors. Lee builds custom interiors . He was chief engineer on some mega yachts and he does nice work from what I can tell. Here are some photos of Lee’s Bison build. He went with a 12’ flatbed box on a Dodge 5500.

I don’t know if I mentioned it earlier but I did put a down payment on a hard sided Bison Overland flatbed camper. I turned in my approximate basic drawings today. I am having the side entrance door go in through a interior wet bath and shower. This negates the need to have a door separately and conserves space. Here are the drawings I turned in today for the Shell build. What are likely I’m going to have Lee from labyrinth run all the electrical systems and the plumbing and then my buddy John and I are probably going to try and save some money and DIY the interior cabinetry and seating and bedding areas.

I'll be following this. I've been on an overland carousel on how I want to proceed with my next build.
One great thing about these guys is because they’re only making the shell with fans, windows and doors, so a shell isn’t anywhere nearly as expensive as all the other similar campers on the market. I’m not sure if the others even offer a shell. The lead time is decent too. If you DIY, then you’re looking at saving a ton! Sadly, I don’t have those skills…
Drew at bison offers a few other attachments and accessories like 8020 racks for solar. Quick release Jack mounting plates etc…
Although I didn’t see it shown on his website, they’re no longer going to be making pop ups. Just composite hard sided campers.
