Taxa Outdoors Overland Trailers are Built for Adventure

Our friends at Taxa Outdoors have always made lightweight, go-anywhere, mobile habitats that allow users to be part of nature – but with an interior space to sleep in at night. These trailers have always been well-designed and rugged, but they just didn’t have the ground clearance and suspension to make them a viable pull-behind for most backcountry travel.

Until now.

From late 2020 and into 2021, Taxa Outdoors has been ruggedizing their Mantis, Cricket, and TigerMoth trailers and re-releasing them as overland variants.

These modded overland trailers all have 14- to 18-inches of ground clearance, a Lock N’ Roll hitch that allows 360 degrees of rotation and three-axis movement, Timbren 2200 lb. axle-less suspension, a four-inch lift, and Cooper Discoverer AT3 LT 225/75R16 all-terrain tires.

The two-person TigerMoth Overland trailer features interior room for two to work, play, and sleep, a slide out outdoor kitchen for meal prep, tons of storage for camping gear, clothing, and outdoor furniture, and THULE load bars to carry your favorite sporting equipment. You can easily add more than two adults with the optional THULE/ TEPUI 3-Person Rooftop Tent.

The Mantis Overland is Taxa Outdoor’s most spacious trailer with space for four adults to hang out, cook, and sleep. The Mantis includes a 20-gallon fresh water tank, a wet bath, a full galley kitchen, and a Truma furnace/ hot water system. For those hot summer months, the Mantis features an 8,000 BTU air conditioner.

TAXA Outdoor’s signature Cricket Overland trailer can comfortably sleep two adults and two children and features interior cooking space with sink, a full-size bed, a portable toilet, loads of storage, and a 15-gallon fresh water tank. Optionally, you can add a 5,000 BTU air conditioner and a THULE/ TEPUI Rooftop Tent.

We think the overland ruggedized addition to their line of already amazing trailers will make any overlander consider a TAXA for their next pull-behind.
