EXPEDITION OVERLAND MISSION

Make an impact through authentic, original content, backed by integrity and service to the overlanding and outdoor communities.

Expedition Overland is a video series produced by Hiline Productions that follows a team of adventurers and their outfitted vehicles through some of the world’s most remote places. Founded in 2010, owners Clay Croft and Rachelle Croft lead a team of “ordinary people doing extraordinary things.” The production showcases the adventures, struggles, and unique people and places they meet along the way. The show is filmed by adventurers and professional cinematographers who excel at telling a compelling story through documentary-style episodes. Their approach is authentic, professional, helpful, and always family-friendly. The Crofts even include their three sons, Cyrus, Ryder, and Eli on adventures when possible which cultivates a spirit of family adventure and a love of the outdoors.

XO’s fleet of 4-wheel drive vehicles is equipped and outfitted for specific journeys. These trusty travel partners can sustain the team for long periods in comfort with battery systems, on-board refrigerators, camper trailers, recovery systems, and roof-top tents!

Always hunting for the next thrill in adventure travel, the team added flight to their expeditions in 2019 using powered paragliders (paramotor / PPGs).

XO expertly shares tested and proven overlanding gear, products, and tactics with enthusiasts using their video marketing expertise and passion for professional cinematography. An established lifestyle brand, XO captivates outdoor and overlanding audiences across the globe, inspiring viewers to get off the couch and experience the world through immersive and educational videos.

The XO Team

Many amazing people are needed to make Expedition Overland run. XO includes a core team who serve the creative, production, online store, and day-to-day administrative needs. Expedition teams vary—we assemble cast and crew based on each trip’s unique needs and challenges.

Many faces have come and gone over the past nine years and we are grateful to our past characters and friends that helped to build XO.

Meet our other cast members…the vehicles!

Vehicles are a very personal and important choice. Here at XO, we build each vehicle for a specific purpose. Since our number one goal is to produce top-quality film content while on the road, that means we may build something different than the weekend warrior would. Over the years, we’ve had the experience of building 13 offroad vehicle and we’ve learned a thing or two along the way that we hope you’ll find helpful when you consider the best vehicle options for your needs.

We’ve used many Toyota vehicles on the show, and in recent years have added makes like Dodge Ram, Jeep Gladiator, motorcycles, and a variety of off-road camper trailers.
