Who We Are
We’re a woman- and veteran-owned company with a zeal for connecting others to the transformational power of outdoor adventure. Overland Discovery is all about living a meaningful, adventurous, and fulfilling life, whether you’re interested in overlanding, vanlife, or RV living.
At Overland Discovery, we believe that an adventurous spirit means to never stop seeking. Exposing ourselves to new sights, new experiences, and new stories allows us to grow, learn, and live life to its fullest.
Traveling in the great outdoors is the best way for your adventurous spirit to spread its wings. We believe forging a meaningful connection to travel and nature should be accessible, welcoming, and life-changing for everyone—no matter your experience level.
Our mission is to bolster your adventurous spirit and make outdoor travel easy, approachable, and exciting through a comprehensive online resource hub for all things vehicle-supported outdoor travel.
Hi! We’re Cami and Eric, lifelong partners, fellow adventurers, and owners of Overland Discovery.
For us, adventure has been waiting at every turn.
For Cami it started early, when her family moved from Colombia to the U.S. when she was 5-years-old. This kickstarted a life of exploration, moving between Latin America, the United States, Europe, and Asia. Similarly, Eric left his hometown of New Orleans to join the Navy, where he spent years as a Navy medic in Japan before pursuing his undergrad in Spain.
We met in Chicago in 2013, and our relationship was forged on a mutual passion for globetrotting. From exploring the sand dunes in Michigan to trekking the Camino de Santiago in Spain, we eventually made our way to Colorado, the capital for outdoor enthusiasts like ourselves.
Coming to Colorado
After moving to Colorado, we continued to follow our adventurous spirit. We jumped right in and tried rock climbing, mountain biking, skiing, and car camping – all for the first time. This opened up our eyes to how fulfilling our everyday lives could be. We no longer had to fly across the world to experience adventure.
We realized we wanted to find a way to share these experiences and learnings with others.
While we loved everything camping had to offer—being closer to nature, living in the moment, enjoying outdoor activities and time with each other—it was becoming harder to plan those types of trips due to a lack of time, gear, and knowledge.
The Birth of Overland Discovery
That’s why Overland Discovery was born! In 2017, we started our own rental company, renting out Jeep campers, campervans, and compact RVs out of Denver, Colorado. We offered fully-stocked rentals so travelers didn’t have to worry about packing or logistics. We had an awesome time and served hundreds of very happy campers!
Earlier this year, we decided to sell that side of the business and re-launched our brand. We turned Overland Discovery into an online resource hub (the website you see today!) to provide fellow adventurers a place to learn about vanlife, rvlife, and overlanding. It’s still a work in progress but we hope you find this website useful as you plan your trip, outfit your own camper, or just browse for inspiration.
Outdoor exploration should be easy and approachable. No matter where you live, what car you drive, or your experience level, everyone deserves access to the life-changing benefits of new adventures!
