Since the new Jeep Gladiator was introduced, it’s been begging to be accessorized or upgraded for overland. Being designated a truck, you knew it would be no time before Jeep Gladiator camper options would start hitting the market. Sure enough, there are now a handful of options now on the market, where some manufacturers have adapted their existing truck camper platform to include the Gladiator, and others have a unique, dedicated design. As with truck campers, there’s sub-niches of the type of camper you can get as well.
AT Overland Summit Jeep Gladiator Camper
I ran across the AT Summit setup at Overland Expo East 2019 in Virginia and got the opportunity to do a video walkaround with AT Overland (see video below). It was an impressive setup visually, being a gloss black paint matching camper. The default finish is bare aluminum with a clear coat. (By the way, here’s a link to Maxtrax Recovery Boards you see in the photo above if you’re interested in them).
The design is that of a wedge camper, where the roof pitches in the rear creating standing space, and sloping down to the cab where a cabover bed exists. Options include custom window arrangements, LED lighting, solar system, heating and many other options & features. The camper walls are insulated.
AT Overland is now touting a full pop-up version of their camper as well called the AT Atlas where the entire roof raises.
Gladiator FiftyTen Flatbed Camper System
Another setup I came across at the same event was the FiftyTen Camper System which is German manufactured and imported here to the U.S. and distributed via Goose Gear. While I got a detailed rundown of a version of the FiftyTen camper setup on an F-350, a Gladiator version was on display as well.
This camper system features includes a flatbed, so you get all that great exterior storage, along with increased interior space. The FiftyTen is designed so your camper opens up to the outdoor experience if you desire. It’s also a wedge camper design. The interior is modular, and Goose Gear has many configurations available to build your camper interior out the way you desire.
Leitner Designs Gladiator Cargo Rack/Roof Top Tent Setup
Earlier in 2019 at Overland Expo West, I came across a setup that some also refer to as a Jeep Gladiator camper that was on display by Leitner Designs. They manufacture a robust cargo rack system for the Gladiator, with all sort of attachment points for their different cargo box options, other gear and the rack can easily support a roof top tent.
Leitner designs had a large hard shell tent mounted to their overland Gladiator on display. The rack gives enough clearance so a large roof top tent can extend out over the cab without issues. Here’s a full article on Leitner Design’s Jeep Gladiator Cargo Rack
