Your backcountry rambles will never be the same with these towables

WORDS By Kraig Becker

Boondocking and overlanding are all the rage these days, and the range of recreational vehicles on the market has changed accordingly. More RV brands are offering trailers specifically designed for off-road travel and off-grid camping—the perfect base camps for backcountry expeditions. And while some of these models shun lavish amenities in favor of staying light and nimble on the trail, others offer a surprising array of features, delivering comfort and style to remote campsites. 

When it’s time to chase the romance of the wild way out to where the pavement ends (or just grab some quiet time), consider these:

TAXA MANTIS

Taxa's flagship model is billed as a minimalist off-road trailer, although its long list of features seems to defy that label. With space to sleep four adults, a full galley kitchen, interior and exterior showers, a bathroom with a cassette toilet and a pop-up roof, the Mantis feels roomy and comfortable. Upgrade to the Overland Edition for more ground clearance, an axle-less suspension, 16" steel wheels and off-road tires. taxaoutdoors.com

Four 150W solar panels and 400Ah house batteries provide power when venturing off-grid. blackseries.net
