CLIFTON PARK, NY (OCT. 30, 2020) – Despite today’s new normal with questions relating to travel, DIY adventurers will take an Overlanding trip in the next 12 months, confirming the appeal of this growing trend combining outdoor travel with social distancing. In the survey fielded this month by Atlantic British Ltd., the largest independent supplier of Land Rover parts and accessories and general Overlanding products, over 88 percent of respondents said they are planning an Overlanding trip within the next 12 months.

Top planned purchase categories include: rooftop tents, a rooftop rack, camping gear, suspension upgrades, storage solutions, recovery gear and lastly, cooking gear.

“Overlanding is experiencing a consistent upward trajectory because consumers are looking for ways to enjoy the outdoors while observing social distancing,” said Scott Williams, president, at Atlantic British. “For our customers that love to customize their automobiles, hitting the road for long-distance trips is the ideal vacation. To them, the journey is the highlight of the vacation, not necessarily the destination – ideal for today’s evolving travel landscape. Our 50-year heritage enables us to anticipate trends and have a clear pulse on what is driving these enthusiasts.”

Atlantic British is celebrating 50 years in business and is enjoying record sales, attributed to the growing national trend of Overlanding travel.
