Ontario, California-based American Fastbacks made its debut last week at America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, Pennsylvania, with its range of premiere custom upfitted Jeeps including a fully self-contained camper model.
American Fastbacks is the premiere innovative leader in the manufacturing of Jeep Wrangler products, supplying high quality parts for the YJ – TJ – JK – JKU – JL – JLU models with innovative, stylish, and functional products.
American Fastbacks began as a line of a revolutionary Jeep JK and TJ/LJ hard tops that drastically reduced cabin noise while protecting drivers from the open road.
Layers of multi-encapsulated insulation were hand-laid into their hardtops to wipe away any unwanted external sounds like noise, wind, and traffic.
American Fastback hard tops are easy to install with hand tools and no drilling necessary. Simply use the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) hardware with factory mounting points provided by Chrysler/Jeep to mount the hard top.
The company was acquired earlier this year by Erwin Hymer Group North American Inc. and has begun to enter into the RV market with RVIA certified full camping models, according to a company news release.
On display at this year’s show, was the all new Badlands model, which is a fully self-contained modern overland camper with an electric push button, pop-up roof top tent.
The Badlands offers two sleeping areas giving you the ability to sleep four people as it has room for two people to sleep in the camper above and two inside the Jeep in a comfortable second row sleeping configuration.
Both areas come with comfortable sleeping pads for when you’re ready to kick back and relax after a day of adventuring.
This unit also comes with a rear kitchen galley, equipped with a stainless-steel sink, refrigeration, and two burner propane stove.
Other custom features include leather seats, MOPAR suspension lift, Fox shocks, 20-inch wheels, 35-inch tires, tow package, sleeper kit, fenders, inner fenders, bumpers, running boards, hood, grille, fire extinguisher, and mount.
The Badlands takes off road camping to a new level.
“Today we have taken an important step in advancing and accelerating our company’s roadmap as we are now able to introduce our ground-breaking, high quality product line to the RV market” said Kenneth Mitchell, Managing Director of Erwin Hymer Group USA L.P.
“Our goal has always been to help enthusiasts get out and enjoy the great outdoors and we are thrilled to be able to share our vision with everyone at the show.”
Also, on display are the company’s signature models including the Force Recon, Stryker, and Defcon which all have their own unique details to make each of them a custom off road Jeep that will have heads turning to look anywhere you drive them.
