What to Bring to Bronco Basecamp at Overland Expo PNW


For months, the Bronco Nation team has been looking forward to having you join us at Overland Expo PNW, and now, we’re in complete countdown mode. By next Thursday, David, Jordan, Matt, London, and I will be welcoming you to camp –– here’s an idea of what to bring.

Still need to register? There’s time, but act quickly!

Bronco Basecamp Packing List

If you’ve previously attended a Bronco Basecamp, you’ll recognize that the list is just about the same. And if this will be your first Basecamp experience with us and have questions, ask them here or in the forums, and we’ll help you out!


Just like at King of the Hammers and Moab 4×4 Safari, Bronco Nation will be supplying our 12×12 canvas tents at no cost –– already set up for you when you arrive –– so you won’t need to pack a tent. And if you have an overlanding setup like a rooftop tent or trailer with your Bronco, you’re welcome to use that in our camping area. Just make sure you check out Overland Expo’s vehicle restrictions before you head out.

Outdoor Supplies

  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Hats for sun protection
  • Moisturizers for eyes, skin, lips, and nose as required
  • Personal water source (water bottles, water bladder, etc)

Sleeping Supplies

  • Sleeping bag (0-degree bags are best)
  • Sleep pad
  • Pillows as required

Other Equipment

  • Head lamp
  • Sturdy outdoors footwear
  • Bright or reflective clothing options for movement at night
  • Light and medium-weight jackets or hoodies
  • Wet wipes
  • Day pack backpack
  • Cash


  • Camp table and chairs
  • Coolers w/ ice
  • Binoculars
  • Satellite based communicator
  • Dedicated GPS
  • Mountain bike for getting around the expo

This list isn’t exhaustive, but it does cover the basics. We’re happy to help you decide if you need to pack a piece of gear, so ask away. Our last tip? Leave a little (or a lot of) room to bring home any items –– fridges, lights, racks, cargo boxes, etc. –– you pick up at the show!



  1. Hi Guys, is there any confirmations being sent out that we are indeed registered for basecamp? We registered with overland expo using the Bronco Nation link. However our overland expo tickets say nothing about being part if basecamp. Is there somewhere that we can confirm as it impacts how we pack for the event. Any help would be appreciated

    1. Hi Scott! If you used our link, and received Overland Expo’s confirmation of your registration, you’re all set.
