White River Overland (WRO) is a professional van and truck outfitter based in Aspen, Colorado and surrounded by the White River National Forest. Born from a love of adventure travel, camping, mountain biking, skiing and backcountry touring, WRO was formed by 2, longtime Roaring Fork Valley locals with a shared vision of creating capable adventure vans and outfitting overland vehicles. Supporting an open, responsive and transparent dialogue with each client, our goal is to exceed expectations by completing projects on a timely basis without compromising the quality of work. From custom builds to our proven designs, WRO is able to tailor projects to specific applications and budgets.
Located just outside of Aspen core, the WRO shares space with its sister company, Cracks and Racks, a 20 year local Aspen company specializing in sales and installation of vehicle rack systems and windshield repair. Always learning and evolving, our build team uses a collaborative work environment and shared experiences to continually improve the quality and functionality of the builds. The bottom line is that we use our own products and love what we do.
ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
Locals will remember Scott starting what is now Cracks &Racks over 20 years ago by pedaling his bike around town doing windshield repairs. From those humble origins, Scott built a reputation in the community as a trustworthy resource for rack systems, windshield repair and aftermarket vehicle accessories. Scott believes first and foremost in customer service, and is always ready to answer questions and provide help. Scott’s expansion of the business into van building and truck outfitting is natural, as this new area overlaps with the existing business. Scott is a hands-on business owner, involved in every aspect of both Cracks & Racks and WRO. Scott lives in Snowmass Village with his wife and young son and can often be found playing & coaching hockey, skiing, mountain biking, and exploring the mountains around Aspen.
