Camping is a great way to explore nature and have some family-friendly fun with the kids. Given the existence of social distancing, the further you can get into the wilderness, the better. Campers have become so popular for traveling this year that many RV parks are now completely booked for months on end. However, if you have off-road capabilities, the options for finding a place to camp for the night are virtually endless. Here are four vehicles that can make all your off-road camper dreams come true.
Opus OP 15 Hybrid for off-road camping
According to MotorTrend, the Opus OP 15 Hybrid can comfortably fit up to four people and comes with an outdoor slide-out kitchen, a bathroom, a pop-up roof, and a dining area with a bed. It also has an integrated sound system with a TV, a 12-volt refrigerator, which is better for off-grid options, and a king-size bed.
It has an independent trailing-arm suspension, a lock ‘n’ roll articulating hitch with 360-degree rotation, 4x dropdown heavy-duty stabilizer, and a fully galvanized and welded chassis, making it an ideal option for those rugged mountain passes. Three 100ah AGM batteries and a 300-watt solar panel will power your TV and fridge without skipping a beat for going off-grid. The price for this option is $45,000.
The TetonX Hybrid offers three-bed configurations for its off-road camper. With a nickname like the “compact powerhouse,” it’s no wonder this little camper is so popular. It features a bathroom, a U-shaped kitchen, a dinette, and it can fit a bed up to 76-by-76 inches, slightly smaller than a king. Tall people can comfortably stand up inside thanks to the spacious 6.6-foot interior height.
Storage options include a roof basket, tongue box, and several generous interior compartments. It has a Group U1 AGM battery, a Noco Genius1 one-bank, a 4-amp charger, and a Noco Shore Plug for power management. It also comes prewired for the portable Zamp Solar power system if you are interested in going off-grid. This camper has a base price of $30,995. The price jumps to $44,995 when loaded with the most popular options.
Off-Grid trailers Pando 2.0 and Black Series HQ12 for off-road camping
The Pando 2.0 is a teardrop-style trailer. It features a high-density foam mattress, LED interior lighting, and ample interior storage. For creature comforts, you get a Dometic fridge and freezer, dual-burner propane cooktop, a roof rack, adjustable rear storage, a shore power charger, and a 10-lb cylinder propane tank. The 33-gallon water tank is an impressive size for such a small trailer and can sustain you several weeks off-grid. The price for this trailer starts at $31,500.
The Black Series HQ12 is a lovely trailer and can accommodate a family of four. Some features include LED lighting, a custom pop-top, and an outdoor kitchen with a sizeable prepping table. On the inside, you’ll find a kitchen galley, a queen bed, a dining table that transforms into an additional sleeping area, high-quality cabinetry, and a bathroom. Pricing for this trailer is $65,995, making it the most expensive trailer in our lineup.
Camping is a great way to get out of the house and reconnect with nature. Being able to do it with many of the creature comforts we enjoy at home makes it an attractive feature even for those who don’t necessarily care for camping.
Having the ability to go off-road with a trailer gives you the added flexibility to travel to places most campers can’t go. Getting to remote locations and still enjoy the convenience of having your kitchen, sleeping quarters, and bathroom can get you even further away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
