Campteq.com – Land Cruiser Camping Top

Camping/Sleeping/Cargo Pop-Up Topper

Aspen Mt. with a view

I had the privilege to catch up with a close friend, Eric Lippincott. I’ve skied with him, helped with fabrics, chatted on bike trails, and now have the chance to introduce you to his new product – CAMPTEQ

He has been on the road the past 3 months putting it to the test. Sleeping off highways, at expositions, in the desert, in the city, in the mountains. All of these pictures are from the past 3 months of his adventure. He took the Overlanding Expo in California by storm. He is working on some new aspects for the next pop up topper he will unveil. And he is truly a journeyman. He is traveling to meet clients in his rig, studying the new diesel engines, and veggie oil conversion kits. He has custom fabrics, new features, and some great events in the future sights. We caught up in Denver before he headed home to Aspen for some more camping and testing. “Everyone wants to camp…at least I know I do. We don’t get lavish vacations but I can think we can drive a veggie rig for 1,000,000 miles and be better for the environment, our budgets, and our lifestyles. Really it all comes down to enjoying the time you have. If you don’t have that much time for fun…then you need to make the most of it. Campteq is the answer to living on the go, traveling to new places, taking your hobby to new limits, and enjoy the time you have with those around you.”
If you want information contact Eric for more. Tell him you saw it on Grimey Gatsby. And if you see the “rig” on the road. Snap a pic for us and send it in. For the Gatsby vacations or Grimey road trips this product is something you must have. You can sleep in it, store your stuff on top, and take it off if you need. Most people are cutting off the roof to have an “overlander suite” that allows for standing, sleeping, and better overall use of the “RIG.”
