Offroad RV choices

I enjoy offroad driving and camping, but am looking to upgrade from my current tent. I've found a few choices, but haven't found any travel trailers suitable for even modest offroad use. I'd be happy to see any references to products or reviews for any offroad-suitable RV. Here's what I have so far:

Outfitter slide-in pop-up truck campers, RV manufacturer & retailer.

I agree I love off roading and camping with new RV. I just recently purchased my RV insurance so I want to head out this weekend. Any suggestions on specific hot off roading spots in CA?

California offroad camping spots

In general, you can camp anywhere in a national forest if you camp smart. Pack it out, no fires, etc. So, in a national forest, if you find a road that looks interesting, let someone know where you are going, and take it! When you're ready, find a spot and spend the night. In state and national parks, ask at the entrance or visitor's center about offroad travel and camping. Honor the rules and explore. Take extreme care about fire in Tahoe National Forest, but that's one of my favorites. Northern California coast is my next destination. Mono Lake wilderness area. At the Golden Gate NRA, the campground at the coast was full, so I picked an inland walk-in site, and I was the only one there. Wonderful experience! Walker Pass campground along the Pacific Crest Trail and SR 178. Mojave National Preserve (you did say HOT). For a clue, explore anything that's colored green on a California map! This is an incredible state!

Off-road Rv

I have been doing some researches and the best Off-road Rv for me at the moment is from Global Expedition Vehicles at Global Expedition Vehicles | Quality Expedition Vehicles
Their campers do not only have high quality but also are truly made for off-road and self-sustainable

I saw a segment on the local news about how RVs make bad off-road vehicles.

This is news?

I think Rug RV choice is better to drive in desert or jungle and can be used during snowstorm
