People are beginning to get off their couches (and their phones) and explore the outdoors again and they’re using their vehicles to do so. With suspension and powertrain technology provided by the auto manufacturers as well as the aftermarket, it’s possible to equip your rig for virtually any obstacle and scenario. Thus, the horizons have been broadened and our explorations can be extended. A major component of these explorations is, of course, the camping element. Thankfully, there’s plenty of options for that, too.
The fastest-growing travel camping segment in the RV world has been off-road trailers. These compact companions not only provide a safe, reliable place to lay your head during your travels, they also allow you to enjoy some of the amenities from home. If we’re being honest, there are varying degrees of campers and some simply don’t want to rough it 100% and I think that’s perfectly fine. The main appeal of these trailers is that they’re typically lightweight – most of the time under 1500 lbs – and can easily be pulled by most passenger vehicles.
Although some of these trailers are moderately built to go rock crawling, we assume most would rather not do it with a trailer behind them. With off-road trailers (as opposed to roof top tents) you can simply unhook, go hit some trails and come back to base.
