Humvee Camper Delivers Old-School Army Surplus Vibes

In a certain day and age, a lot of us went camping with army surplus gear. Ever think about going camping in an actual army vehicle?

In this clip, YouTuber Mav hits the boonies in his decommissioned M1123, an ex-military communications vehicle. The Humvee platform and stenciled USMC designations over a classic camo paint job lend the whole trip an “oorah!” feel.

Meanwhile, its various aftermarket appointments deliver the backcountry goods. Watch Mav rumble and bounce over the backroads in between pork-and-beans-style meals, to a guttural gas engine cadence.

Overlanding doesn’t get a whole lot more “army surplus” than in this down-to-earth video.
