Choosing between an Aluminum, Fiberglass or Wood Off Road Capable Teardrop or Camping Trailer.

What makes an Off Grid Trailer different?

The short answer is quality. Quality materials, quality craftsmanship, quality components, and quality customer service extends into our industry-leading warranty and post-purchase support.

Off Grid Trailers are made completely out of metal with an aluminum body on a steel frame. By using high-quality materials, we can ensure your trailer will last generation after generation.

WHY ALL METAL? (Why not Fiberglass or wood construction?)

Durability:

Aluminum will last much longer with no risk of rotting, cracking, or deteriorating. Fiberglass will deteriorate from repeated UV exposure to sunlight, which is not ideal when talking about an overland camping trailer that is used primarily in the summer months through intense sun exposure, including in the desert. Fiberglass also tends to crack when put through intense stress, which is common practice when driving off-road through technical and rough terrain.

Environmentally Friendly:

Aluminum is an environmentally friendly option when compared to fiberglass construction for an off-road capable teardrop camping trailer. When looking at both the construction process as well as the disposal process. Fiberglass fabrication operations and manufacturing can produce toxic pollutants, including styrene as well as volatile organic compounds. The volatile organic compounds can react with air to form ground-level ozone which is commonly referred to as smog. Aluminum is known as a green metal and is the most environmentally friendly metal to produce. Aluminum can be recycled indefinitely, meaning that once you are done with your Off Grid Trailer, you can repurpose the aluminum many times over. Although some fiberglass can be recycled most unused fiberglass campers, trailers and boats end up in landfills.

Weight:

When comparing building materials for a teardrop overland camping trailer build, one important factor to consider is weight. On average an aluminum body trailer, when compared to a fiberglass body trailer will be 30 to 40% lighter, assuming they are using the same amount of material, with comparable frames and running gear. A lower curb weight will increase your fuel economy as well as your off-road capability. You will also be able to pack more gear into and on top of your overland trailer without any concerns about maxing out your GVWR and tow vehicles’ tow capacity.

WHY BESPOKE MANUFACTURED COMPONENTS?

At Off Grid Trailers, we pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality trailers that incorporate customer feedback. To do so, it is important to build our trailers out of the highest quality components. Beyond the body of the trailer and the frame, every other component is carefully manufactured to ensure it meets our high level of craftsmanship. We pride ourselves on building the most robust and exclusive side entry doors in the overland trailer industry.  Customers asked and we delivered; A rich engineering background resulted in a robust door that maintains an R10 insulation value consistent with the rest of the cabin of the trailer.  Our Pack members wanted large-capacity hot and cold-water sinks; the result was a custom-manufactured and CSA-approved stainless-steel sink.  Customers wanted additional weight capacity for storage; our integrated roof rack is rated to a static load rating of 1000 lbs. but has been tested by a 3rd party engineering firm to withstand over 2000 lbs. with no damage to the rack itself, body, or the chassis of the trailer.  

WHY DIRECT TO CONSUMER?

When you put as much time, dedication, and passion into manufacturing the highest quality and most durable off-road capable all-metal overland camping trailers, you do not outsource customer service. As a company we truly believe a great brand is built on great customer service, therefore we have chosen to keep that in-house, with our own inside sales team, direct-to-consumer sales, and a delivery network that ensures efficient, local delivery across North America. Beyond the point of the purchase, the Off Grid Trailers team stands behind their product and is willing to do what it takes to “make it right”.

WHY CAN OFF GRID TRAILERS GO ANYWHERE?

An Off Grid Trailer can truly follow your tow vehicle anywhere you have the confidence to take it. Our trailers come standard with the Timbren 3500HD axle-less suspension with a 4-inch lift and 265/70/17 tires which provides 21 inches of ground clearance, if that is not enough for you, we also offer a suspension upgrade. By working directly with Fabtech Motorsports we have designed and developed the proprietary OGT Evolution Series Suspension by Fabtech Motorsports. The OGT Evolution Series Suspension increases your ground clearance to 25 inches and allows for 8 inches of wheel travel. The innovative trailing a-arm design utilizes a Fabtech Motorsports 2.25” Dirt logic Shock with custom valving to create the optimal dampening whether your trailer is loaded or unloaded.   

WHY DO OFF GRID TRAILERS HOLD THEIR VALUE?

The biggest issue in the RV and camping trailer industry is water intrusion and rot. This is especially true when you are looking at an off-road capable overland camping teardrop, square drop, or adventure trailer. When overlanding it is not uncommon to cross a rushing river, spend days in rain or snow, as well as time in hot and dry deserts, even all on the same trip. When traversing rough terrain sub-par materials such as wood and fiberglass tend to warp, stretch, or crack which can allow moisture to enter the substrates. When moisture meets wood, you are bound to develop mold, mildew, and rot which can completely ruin a trailer. When you are looking at such a confined space, as in a small teardrop camping trailer, developing mold and mildew can become quite dangerous to be around and cause long-lasting health effects if not treated or removed. Wood, as a naturally occurring substance, is prone to decay, rot is the first sign that your wooden camping trailer is decaying and becoming structurally unsound. When you compare fiberglass and wood construction methods to that of an all-metal camping trailer, it is easy to see why the all-aluminum option will hold its value better. With an aluminum body, there is no lifespan to worry about as the aluminum will last indefinitely if maintained properly.

Our trailers have undergone military-grade testing to ensure longevity in the frame, chassis, and other structural components.

With any major purchase, one of the most important factors to consider is the post-purchase service.
