Why Choose an Off Road Camper Trailer...

North America has countless opportunities to get into the backcountry and unplug from daily life and dozens of ways to make that happen. From RVs and cars to tents and tarps, anyone who loves the outdoors can get lost (metaphorically) in the woods, the prairie or lakes and rivers. Today, we’re going to give a few points on why we believe the off road camper trailer is the perfect solution for most outdoor-oriented people. Sure, we’re biased toward the products we make, but we didn’t get into the camper trailer industry by mistake. It has some huge advantages.

Many of us have spent a night or a week in an RV. They bring many of the comforts of home with us. You can take a warm shower, cook indoors over a gas stove and even make a cup of coffee while you’re driving (if you’re in a motorhome or camper van). Taking an RV trip is often the nudge campers need to have an adventure without jumping past their comfort level.

The downside to RVs is their consumption of resources and their physical limitations. Many motorhomes (think of Class A and Class C here) take a lot of fuel to run, are slow moving and really can’t be taken into the woods much more than a little way off the road. They are built for comfort, not versatility. If you get into RV camping you may find quickly that your options are limited by the size of your vehicle and how close you need to be to a town.

Not so long in the past, the solution to the, ‘I can’t take my RV there’ problem was a lightweight camper or a popup. Both are lighter and more versatile, but many campers have found that while their truck or SUV can get into a lot of wonderful backcountry camping spots, their standard trailer or popup camper can’t handle the terrain. Many small campers aren’t built with much ground clearance and their construction means they can’t handle rough roads without damage.

Here is where the off road camper trailer is the perfect innovation. Borne from the 4×4 innovations of the 70s and 80s, off road campers have the design and construction to handle rough roads, the ground clearance to make sure your trailer can keep up with your vehicle and when you get there, an Off Grid Trailer has the modifications and accessories to ensure a comfortable, enjoyable camping trip. We didn’t set out to create a trailer you’ll replace in a few years when leaks show up or the chassis gives out. We created a camper trailer that’s up for the challenge of off road camping and can handle all the surprises you find in the backcountry. Take a virtual or in-person tour of an OGT trailer and we think you’ll agree.
