It is here in central Arizona, you see anything from Jeep Compasses to full size 4wd 2500 trucks with the tent on the roof or bed rack and various amounts of the cool gear that goes with the outfit. The main publication of overlanding, Overland Journal and it's associated internet forum ExpeditionPortal.com are based in nearby Prescott so it hasn't been unusual for quite a few years to see the big European expedition trucks lumbering around the area. The favorite platforms seems to be the Tacoma followed by 4 door Wranglers. Driving back roads all day long then sleeping in a tent on the roof of your vehicle seems like it would get tiresome but I'm old and like some comforts. I wonder how many stick with it any length of time? I worked for a short time for AT Overland building overland truck topper tents, atoverland.com, the wait time 2 years ago was 36 weeks to get one. You can get serious money into this.
