Expedition Inspired™: Turtleback Trailers Tracks Expedition Inspired™: Turtleback Trailers


As a kid, Dave Munsterman spent his evenings watching Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom and dreaming of adventure. As a child of the 60’s in San Diego, he was raised camping with his family in the Cuyamaca mountains and in the Anza Borrego desert of Southern California in a slightly modified ’65 VW bus to haul around his family of four.


To accommodate these family expeditions, Munsterman’s father creatively converted a Ford Econoline Van by cutting off the top and installing a fiberglass bubble roof. He then outfitted it to be an adventure worthy cruiser. In the spring of 1971, the family took off in the van for a three month adventure across the United States.


It was this kind of auto based travel that inspired Munsterman to create the camping trailer company, Turtleback Trailers in Phoenix, Ariz.
