Off Road Camper Trailers

View:  

Go Where Caravans Can’t

Although off-road camper trailers are perfect for any standard campground, they show their true colours when following you where even the very best off-road caravans struggle to go. The small size, relatively low weight, increased underbody and side protection lets an off-road camper trailer squeeze through those tight gaps and survive rougher conditions. Along with upgraded suspension, tyres, brakes and chassis, there are few places a true off-road camper trailer can’t go.

Depending on the model and how much you are willing to spend, some off-road camper trailers feature an internal kitchen, while most will have it located externally. Showers and toilets are also often not found inside a camper trailer, so you may need to bring a pop up shower tent for some privacy. Camper trailers also need to be set up before they can be used. Although this doesn’t take long, some adventurers prefer a caravan so they don’t need to spend time assembling their trailer.

If you are willing to sacrifice a few creature comforts for a trailer that can follow your 4WD anywhere, an off-road camper trailer will allow you to access campsites and national parks unseen by most travellers.

Towing an off-road camper trailer

Unlike a road-only camper trailer, off-road variations are heavier and require a more powerful vehicle to tow them. They also require a vehicle that is capable of handling the rough conditions an off-road camper trailer is suited to. The Mitsubishi Pajero, Toyota Landcruiser, Nissan Navara, Holden Colorado and Ford Ranger are common 4WDs used by off-road camper trailer owners. Heading off road may also require upgrading your vehicle’s barwork protection, tyres and suspension. For more information, head over to our guide to hitching up your camper trailer.
