Inka Outdoor, LLC is proud to offer the Venture OHV™ – Rough Ridge Edition, a capable Off Highway Vehicle and overland camper.

IMG_20151008_172226 (1)Based on Inka Outdoor’s highly refined, modern teardrop camper body and integrated with a newly-designed, well armored off-road chassis, the Venture OHV™ Rough Ridge Edition teardrop brings together all the elements required for a truly exceptional overland or expedition camper. Riding on a custom designed  independent air suspension, the Venture OHV is a well qualified Off Highway Vehicle!

_DSC7765_1Why the name? – Rough Ridge is popular section of the Tanawah Trail along the Blue Ridge Parkway on the back of Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina and is accessible from milepost 303. Located in the Grandfather Mountain Biosphere Reserve, the vista from the rock outcropping at the top is one of the more spectacular places to experience an Appalachian Mountain sunrise a great place to begin any adventure. We pay homage to adventure and to Rough Ridge by naming our OHV camper after this great location.

IMG_20151012_101904The Venture OHV™ Rough Ridge Edition is a fresh take on the overland adventure camper. A rugged yet fairly lightweight approach (considering that many expedition rigs are based on 20,000lb or heavier chassis) the Venture OHVbrings serious long-haul offroad capability to lighter vehicle packages such as the Jeep Wrangler or Toyota Landcruiser. No longer limited to small-box “Jeep” style trailers or the ever-popular “once setup you can’t go anywhere” rooftop vehicle tent, adventurers and travelers now have the option of bringing some serious civilization along. Base-camping while still being able to use your vehicle is now practical.

Equipped with all the standard comfort and livability features of our Brevard Hustler street model  camper and riding on a time-proven off road suspension design, we believe that the Venture OHVhas what it takes.

IMG_20150913_133016Beginning on the ground – Riding on 32 inch B. F. Goodrich All-Terrain T/A’s mounted on steel crawler rims (standard) the designed-for-purpose chassis is specifically fixture-built. The twin trailing A-arms are mirrors of each other and capable of more than 2X the rated worse-case impact suspension loads.  Derated Firestone Ride-Rite air-springs support the body and provide a smooth, durable ride with onboard compressor and wireless adjustable remote. Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks IMG_20150913_132922dampen the bumps. 10″ electric drum brakes (with optional parking brake) provide the stopping power and electric-over-hydraulic disc brakes are available. Oversized polyurethane bushings support the suspension components and grade-8 fasteners are used. 11 gage rectangular tube and 3/16″ laser cut steel components make up the frame rails and brackets. All of this is protected in critical areas by 14 gage steel skid plates and removable (repairable) tubular rock-rails protect the body edges. Jeep-style 11 gage aluminum diamond-plate fenders are standard and diamond plate protects the composite camper body in critical areas.

IMG_20151114_174932The upgraded body – The familiar Inka Outdoor teardrop camper body is built up with an additional inter-layer fastener schedule, extra epoxy-composite reinforcements where required and additional glass layers in the layup. Corners are reinforced, side surfaces are beefed-up and the floor pan has no openings to allow water, dust or debris to enter. The water tanks (up to 38 gallons of fresh) are skid-plated and plumbing through-holes double-gasketed with neoprene. No unnecessary wiring, plumbing or fittings protrude on the underside of the chassis and everything possible has been re-routed inside the vehicle. Rugged roof rack-rails are standard. When ordered, the optional air conditioning and heating system is equipped with a shallow snorkel. Scrabbling over rocks & brush and deep water fording are no problem.
