Blurred Lines: Van Life Inspired Overland UTV

Adventure photography sometimes requires lots of gear and the ability to get to remote places for extended periods of time. This DRACO-built Polaris XPEDITION for photographer Quin Schrock was designed to enable just that.

A Polaris XPEDITION gets a custom makeover by DRACO UTV for adventure photographer Quin Schrock. Inspired by a Sprinter camper van build, this custom UTV is set up to tackle rough terrain, carry a ton of gear, and provide a full host of living systems.

Yes, it even comes with a kitchen sink. It actually has a full slide-out kitchen — out the rear driver’s side door. A 12V fridge is powered by a GoalZero Yeti, fed by roof-mounted solar panels.

While the interior of the front of this Polaris XPEDITION UTV is customized with loads of leather and electronics, the rear is kept really simple. It has a sleeping platform plenty big for a 6’+ tall person, with the tailgate down. A little tent system even drops down with the tailgate for foul weather protection.

The DRACO roof rack houses a ton of accessories, including a shower, a self-supported awning, an off-road floor jack, and loads of storage bins.

A custom long-travel and super-wide suspension system, along with massive 35-inch tires wrapped on 15-inch beadlock wheels, should allow this UTV to tackle some serious off-road terrain. A plethora of off-road lights will allow it to do so at any time of day.

We have little doubt that this Polaris adventure machine will help Quin Schrock get the outdoor adventure photos he’s been dreaming of.

A second part of this video is coming soon, so hopefully, we’ll get to see more of this machine in action and some of the images Schrock is able to capture.

Runtime: 5 min., 38 sec.
