The popularity and variety of off-road and overland-focused trailers have skyrocketed in recent years. Now, more than ever, overlanders and adventure seekers have a host of options for hauling cargo and adding living space to their backcountry set-up. With a properly outfitted and capable trailer, you can add some food to the fridge and hit the road since it can remain packed and ready to go between trips. 

Boreas Campers — EOS-12

Built in Colorado, the Boreas Campers EOS-12 is an offroad, off-grid, four-season camper trailer that is large enough to have a wet bath and stand inside but, at 20 feet long and 3,750 lbs dry, is small enough to truly access the backcountry. All components of the EOS-12 are top quality, American-made whenever available, and overbuilt to match the build ethos of Boreas Campers. The EOS-12 starts with a heavy-duty chassis that utilizes a fully welded, powder-coated tube steel frame ready for any offroad challenge.  

The Cruisemaster XT independent trailing arm suspension utilizes airbags and shocks for an exceptionally smooth towing experience. The airbags are connected to the Garmin ONE system that comes standard with the EOS-12 and allows one to auto-level, raise, and lower the suspension at the touch of a button. The air suspension creates up to 20 inches of ground clearance and is kept topped off with the Viair 485C onboard air compressor. The air chuck allows one to air up tires, stand-up paddleboards, or other toys. Besides the suspension, the Garmin ONE tablet connects and controls everything, including the solar panel output, battery charge levels, Truma Combi furnace & hot water heater, water pump, porch and rock lights, speakers, and A/C.  

The cabin of the EOS-12 features a permanent Queen bed at the front and two cushioned bench seats that can be assembled into a twin-sized bed. Underneath the bench seats and the bed is ample storage. The wet bath in the rear of the cabin features a shower and a choice of cassette or dry flush toilet. The shower can also be accessed from outside. 

The kitchen’s sink provides hot and cold water from the 50-gallon freshwater tank. Next to the sink is the three-burner Furrion cooktop stove, which puts out 7500 BTUs per burner. The Truma cooler slides out of the next bay, and next to it is 13 cubic feet of storage space, accessible from outside or in. 

Traveling off the grid means relying on your own power sources, and high-quality components hold up when you need them most. Four hundred watts of solar panels come standard with the option of up to 1000 watts. The Victron solar charge controller sends the power to the Battle Born Gamechanger batteries, where 540 ah comes standard with the ability to upgrade up to 1080 ah. The 3000-watt Victron MultiPlus inverter comes standard as well. If you are at a campground or want to power up the batteries before leaving, use the 30 amp, marine-grade, locking shore power outlet for all your power needs.

Designed and manufactured by the team that changed the Light-Sport Aircraft market with their Vashon R7 Ranger, the team at Mammoth Overland has done it again. The Mammoth HV is the largest truly off-road capable Overland Trailer available today. Yet its aircraft heritage shines through in the trailer’s weight. With standard options, the trailer tips the scale at just 1,650 lbs. Maximum gross trailer weight is 3,500 lbs. leaving plenty of capacity to haul your gear. Jeeps, Toyotas, and even Subarus can easily tow the lightweight yet rugged HV to its off-grid campsite.  

Starting the design by building around a king-size mattress, Mammoth Overland wanted to make the trailer comfortable for the entire family, including four-legged companions, while exploring off-grid. No other overland trailer is this spacious on the interior. 

Utilizing the same aircraft engineering standards, materials, and assembly practices that made the Vashon R7 Ranger so successful over the past decade, Mammoth Overland has produced another product that they are proud of. While not being used at shows, their demo trailer is kept busy by employees getting out and exploring on the weekends. While proud of the Mammoth HV trailer, they are humble in their price, keeping adventure affordable. 

Customers with Mammoth HVs travel across the nation exploring National Parks, National and State Forests, BLM lands, and iconic overland trails, including the Mojave Road, creating incredible memories.  

Mammoth Overland’s unique kitchen swing-out drastically increases the kitchen storage and prep space. There is no other kitchen like the Mammoth HV’s. The backside of the kitchen swing-out features the on-demand water heater and shower that come standard with the trailer. 

Standard features include Timbren 3500HD independent suspension, electric brakes, unique swing-out kitchen with stainless steel sink and two burner propane stove, electric cooler/fridge, 100 aH AGM battery combined with a1 Kw true sine wave inverter/battery charger, solar ready, LED lighting, rugged rock sliders, 21-gallon water tank, on-demand hot water, shower/toilet/privacy shelter, modular roof rack, large front storage box, rear hitch receiver, awning, mattress, 7-pin trailer harness and more!

TCTeardrops Trailers are built to take it anywhere! TCTeardrop has been building teardrop campers since 2008, and new this year is their Adventure Edition (AE) model. The AE model is TC’s first special edition, geared toward Overlanders who like to bring their bikes and boats along for the ride. There is no need to stop where the two-track ends; take it as far as you can tow it, then keep the adventure going on the single track or the water trail. The AE model comes standard with some of TC’s most popular options while still allowing customers to accessorize as they see fit. Built on the same rugged framework offered with the ISO and ORE models, the AE model includes a Lock n Roll articulating receiver hitch (both trailer and vehicle sides). The 3,500 lb derated torsion axle with 6×5.5 hubs comes standard with 15-inch wheels, Falken AT Trails, and 10-inch electric brakes. You can upgrade to 16-inch wheels or customize the wheels and tires to match your tow vehicle up to 35s, which until now was only possible with TCTeardrop’s ORE model. 

The optional extended front platform on the AE model makes room for easily loading mountain or road bikes or a small motorcycle for scouting or trail riding. The dry weight of the AE model comes in under 1,400 lbs, with the tongue weight sitting approximately 190 lbs. empty, so you don’t need a 4×4 truck to tow it with. TC tows their show model with a Subaru Forester Wilderness. As an extra bonus, an under-carriage skid plate or Space-age synthetic flooring is included as standard! 

The roomy interior measures 6 feet 7 inches in the sleeping cabin, and you get a full front cabinet (standard) for lots of gear storage. A double bunk can easily be added to sleep two children under five feet tall, or you can use the optional, removable shelf for additional storage. The galley is the depth of the standard 5×9 model (25 inches) with plenty of room for your camp stove, food, and gear, as well as a 75Q Grizzly or a Dometic CFX55 IM, either of which you can purchase right from TCTeardrops when you place your order. Rhino Roof Racks and awnings, OVS or Frontrunner Awnings, and side tents, along with extra water storage and propane storage, are all available options to add more comfort to your outdoor living space.

Timberleaf Trailers — Pika

The Timberleaf Trailers Pika teardrop trailer borrows many of the features and design inspiration from its big brother, the Classic, such as the over-built fully welded and powder coated 2-inch by 3-inch 11 gauge steel frame, enamel baked aluminum sides, and our signature skylight. 

Starting out at 1,025lbs with a 54-inch by 96-inch frame, and is well suited for travelers who are seeking a lighter, nimbler trailer or don’t feel the need for the bells and whistles of the Classic but do want the ultimate in comfort as they camp. 

Available with three suspension options, their most compact teardrop trailer can be equipped with a Standard highway package, All-Road package, or Off-Road package to make a trailer well-suited for all types of travel behind nearly any vehicle. The Pika is the ultimate in small camping trailers. 

Timberleaf offers an array of retro-inspired laminate options to make up a spacious main countertop, a pair of sliding doors, four USB ports, a 12-volt accessory port, and a 110-volt GCFI outlet. Dimmable two-color LED dome lights on the inside of the hatch are activated by a switch on the power panel adjacent to the USB ports. 

The standard Pika galley features two drawers in the center below the countertop and a cabinet with a door on either side. This layout has proven to be very popular and allows for a well-organized camp kitchen. 

As an option, the galley can accommodate a Dometic CFX3-35 12-volt refrigerator; with 35 liters of capacity, the fridge allows you to keep your food cold and fresh for days on end with no concern of ice ever again.  

Compact and spacious, rarely do such words work so well together. The Pika’s cabin is built around a double-size mattress, slightly more compact than their Classic; at 54 inches wide, the Pika comfortably sleeps two in its cozy cabin, making it one of the most comfortable small camping trailers. 

To maintain the spacious feel inside, they strayed from tradition and introduced a series of compact cargo storage locations – one on either side of the mattress by the doors and a larger one above the foot of the bed. They have also included a pair of USB ports and a 110v outlet at the foot of the bed. 

The cabin is illuminated by three LED lamps, all of which are warm white, which adds to the warm, inviting feeling of our trailer. Every Timberleaf Trailers Pika comes standard with our large skylight, skylight shade, 4-speed electric fan, two doors, two windows, and mattress. Add pillows and a destination, and you’re ready to camp the day you pick it up.
