With the OP4 off-road camper, you can stay off-grid for up to four days and sleep up to six people comfortably. The inflatable design features a built-in air pump that inflates the structure in roughly two minutes. I was glad to see the pump built-in, as this was one of my largest concerns when I first saw this rugged trailer.

The first thing that caught my eye about the MORV off-road camper was the easy access to the storage compartment. The entire trailer lid lifts on assisted supports to make grabbing your gear quick and easy, facilitating a fast, efficient campsite setup. 

It also features a three-inch RV mattress, LED lighting, a military-tested independent torsion axle, a trailer stabilizer, and a patented tailgate design. Available upgrades for this off-road camper trailer include a rear hitch trailer stabilizer, lid tie-down kit, and a third trailer rack with uprights and/or a bar.

  • Cargo Capacity: 1,786 pounds
  • Ground Clearance: Contact the manufacturer for exact specifications
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 2 (with a rooftop tent)

The Terra Trek Australia off-road camper trailer is designed to handle rough terrain and weather. It’s light & compact for easy maneuverability. The camper also sets up quickly and doesn’t require much time to clean out on shorter trips.

One of the first things that caught my eye when researching this off-road camper was the inclusion of not one, but two, spare tires. This may seem like a small deal, but any off-road enthusiast knows that tire blowouts happen, and this trailer keeps you prepared when they do.

The best features of the Terra Trek include a combination fridge and freezer, a side-access pantry, a solar panel, mud-terrain tires, a slide-out kitchen with pumped water, internal storage, an outdoor twin burner cooker, and more. Some features are optional and will change the price of your camper.

  • Dry Weight: 1,200 pounds

The Schutt XVenture XV2 off-road camper trailer is crafted with aircraft-grade aluminum, making it durable in extreme climates. All Schutt trailer models are backed by a 10-year factory warranty. Each one is made in the USA and is designed with military engineering basics.

I don’t know about you, but it’s easy for me to have faith in the build quality and construction of a trailer that’s “born of military engineering.” When you’re camping in remote locations, I think you’ll also love the 360-degree campsite illumination provided by the XV2’s lighting package. 

Standard features include a heavy-duty fold-down tailgate, max coupler hitch, large toolbox, LED lighting, and electric brakes. The available optional upgrades are a water system, propane system, water heater, lighting systems, and power upgrades.

From a functional perspective, the massive water tank, an impressive electrical package, and a super useful kitchenette make this off-road camper stand out. 

The water tank holds up to 42 gallons, and the camper has more than 50 cubic feet of storage space. Features include a shower, stove, slide-out kitchen, steel fold-down tables, LED lighting, standard roof rack, electricity, and more.

Off-Road Camper Specs

  • Length: 14’
  • Dry Weight: 1,500 pounds
  • Cargo Capacity: 600 pounds
  • Ground Clearance: 11 to 17.5”
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 2

The Timberleaf Classic Teardrop Camper has a cute, eye-catching design that makes it an obvious choice for our list. But what sets this trailer apart from the competition is the fully insulated cabin. That goes a long way for extended-season camping on cooler evenings. 

For someone who loves to cook on any camping trip, the rear galley offers a built-in sink, an 11 or 17.5-gallon onboard water storage tank, multiple drawers for storing kitchen essentials, and options to include a two-burner cookstove, a pull-out tray for a cooler or portable fridge, and three cooler or fridge models.

Timberleaf also offers three suspension packages for you to choose from: 

  • Standard – for the “highway cruiser”
  • All-Road – for the “all-arounder”
  • Offroad – for the “remote adventurer”

Hickory Expedition Off-Road Trailer

Off-Road Camper Specs

  • Length: 12’
  • Dry Weight: 900-1,250 pounds (depending on options)
  • Cargo Capacity: 2,250-2,600 pounds (depending on options)
  • Ground Clearance: 18-20” (depending on tire and wheel choice)

The Hickory off-road trailer was designed with convenience and durability in mind. It has an aluminum body for strength and tube fenders for maneuverability around trees and over rocks.

Every Hickory off-road camper trailer comes with an aluminum tongue box that can be modified to suit your specific needs. The base model includes off-road tires, a urethane coating, an adjustable hitch, LED lighting, battery breakaway and safety chains, and four jacks.

The camper also has the option to add a roof rack for added storage. Other add-ons include two different water packages, two different propane packages, a solar package, a portable solar package, a shower package, a power package, a heat & AC package, and more.

TAXA Outdoors Wooly Bear

Off-Road Camper Specs

  • Length: 10’8”
  • Dry Weight: 1,270 pounds
  • Cargo Capacity: 830 pounds
  • Ground Clearance: 12”
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 3 (with a rooftop tent)

Taxa’s Wooly Bear off-road camper is everything you need in a backcountry base camp. It’s lightweight, versatile, and has a ton of storage for your outdoor gear. Plus, the adjustable risers create an elevated rooftop tent platform while providing storage space below.

I mainly chose this off-road camper for its gear-hauling potential, but it comes with a pretty nifty camp kitchen too. You may not be cooking on a multi-burner cooktop like in a traditional RV, but there’s plenty of room for kitchen essentials, dry goods, and your backcountry stove.

This hardy, high-clearance trailer features a full-size outdoor kitchen, storage, a pull-out for your cooler, and a platform to install a 2 or 3-person tent. You can easily tow this off-road travel trailer with any rig, including 4-cylinder vehicles. The large cargo deck stores bicycles, boats, or boards.

Coleman Rubicon 1200RK

Off-Road Camper Specs

  • Length: 13’5”
  • Dry Weight: 1,682 pounds
  • Cargo Capacity: 1,318 pounds
  • Ground Clearance: 14”
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 2

I added the Coleman Rubicon 1200RK to this list because so many of the other models rely on the addition (or inclusion) of a rooftop tent for a sleeping area. With the Rubicon 1200RK and the 1400BH below, you have a fully enclosed area with a comfortable bed as your retreat after a long day of camp adventures. 

The 1200RK is a better model for couples or solo travelers, as there’s a single entry door, a couch that converts into a bed, and just enough storage inside for weekend getaways. You also have an electric fireplace to use when connected to shore power or a portable generator. 

The rear kitchen has a hatch that flips up and provides coverage on rainy days. The height of the hatch extends to a little over six feet, so most campers should have enough headroom while cooking. But there’s also plenty of space to pack a portable griddle or stovetop and loads of perishable storage in the included fridge. 

Coleman Rubicon 1400BH

Off-Road Camper Specs

  • Length: 15’11”
  • Dry Weight: 1,908 pounds
  • Cargo Capacity: 1,092 pounds
  • Ground Clearance: 14”
  • Sleeping Capacity: Up to 3

The Coleman Rubicon 1400BH is the slightly larger brother to the 1200RK, making it better suited for couples that want more interior sleeping space, or small families that don’t mind snuggling together at night. It’s technically a bunkhouse floorplan, but only the smallest of campers will fit into the bunks. 

Like the 1200RK, it has a fully enclosed sleeping area that converts into a living area with a small table during the day. The 1400BH has entry doors on both sides, which is a huge plus if you don’t want everyone tripping over each other when going in and out. Inside, it has the same electric fireplace and A/C unit as the 1200RK and the outdoor kitchen is also comparable.

Is One of The Best Off-Road Campers For You?

While you may want to buy the first camper you see, it is important to stop and evaluate your needs. The camper you choose can make or break your trip.

Always do thorough research and be specific about what you’re looking for. There are plenty of options out there but not all of them are right for you. You may want to speak with a dealer who can help evaluate which off-road camper suits your needs best.

You should also take into account what gear and supplies you’ll need to buy to stock the camper. Having a budget going into the RV buying process is the best way to ensure you get your ideal off-road camper and still have funds left to fill your gas tank so you can get out and enjoy that camper!

Camping should be an enjoyable experience; an off-road camper may be the key to taking your trips to the next level.
