I Built The Ultimate Adventure Truck

Ridiculously limitless and over the top, it's a adventure mobile. We call this the ultimate Hiccup. I'm Mike Hallmark. I'm the marketing and international sales manager for Hellwig Suspension products. Behind me is what we dubbed the Hellwig Rule Breaker. It's a 2016 Nissan Titan with a 2017 Lance 650 Camper on the back. We were trying to come up with a new idea for SEMA, which is the basically the world's biggest car show in Las Vegas. And we wanted something that would showcase our products, but do it in a different way. We specialize in load and sway control, so that's airbags, helper springs and sway bars. Typically, our number one client or customer is going to be somebody that's towing and hauling, somebody that has a sliding camper like the truck behind me. When you think of a truck and a camper, you think of a white truck with a white camper with the white haired dude driving at 45 miles an hour. So we wanted to go the complete opposite. So we did a yellow truck, black camper with some graphics on it, method wheels with Falcon tires. This is Icon vehicle dynamic suspension. Softer for on road, heavier for off road. Next we have a fab fours bumper that we modified for our worn winch and then our rear sway bar that helps to manage the altered center of gravity on this thing and keep it safe going down the road and here, off road. Here is our bathroom area, stepping out immediately to the left. We've got your sink, you've got a two burner range, we've got the fridge right here, Any food you need, beer, beverages, you're good to go. Cool feature is the TV, have it locked in place and watch it laying in bed. Full audio system here and outdoor speakers when you're lounging, hanging out on your hammock or kicking underneath the awning, the way it dries now, compared to factory, even with the camper off is completely night and day. As far as going down the highway, it's it's much more planted. It has a slightly wider stance, It definitely has more surface area of tire. It doesn't feel like you're driving a truck at all. It feels like you're just driving a Sedana tire off the ground. We wanted to see what it would do, so we took it up and down some hills, got some three wheel motion going, got the front left wheel off, got the front right off, no hiccups, no issues. This thing's been amazing for us. We built this truck for the 2016 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Definitely have people that came over saying, what are you doing? It's absolutely ridiculous who does that? And one guy actually said to me, but it got me over here. Well, I've stayed in this thing up to three weeks at a time. I've actually left quality name brand hotels, the comfort of their bed to go sleep in the camper. It's been a great truck. We've camped all over. We've taken it to the bottom of the Grand Canyon a couple times. We've been to Overland rallies, It's been to Baja, Mexico twice. It's toured pretty much the whole western United States. I've camped in it in legit camp spots. I've camped out in the parking lot of music venues. I can sit here all day with a campfire and tons of beers and tell you story after story about where we've been. Call me an outdoorsy guy, but I just. I like going out and living outdoors. Fire up the grill. We'll serve some brats and give out some beer.
