This Travel Trailer Inflates with Air in 2 Minutes

RVs March 3, 2017

This Travel Trailer Inflates with Air in 2 Minutes

This travel trailer for camping is special because of its method of transforming from little box trailing behind your vehicle into sizable camp dwelling: it inflates. They use air to put the tent up.

And it looks very comfortable inside, with all the amenities people need for a cozy camp stay, anywhere they can drive their vehicle into, whether it be lakes, rivers, mountains, the ocean, fields or roads.

The tent inflation system and camper are the work of Opus. This one’s called the “Air Opus” travel trailer, and it can be set up in about one third of the time it took to set up their original travel trailer, which also got attention for its style and comfort.

It has versatile gear hauling, a good layout and lots of camping/living needs like (standard and options mixed here):

– wraparound couch
– sink
– refrigerator
– movie system (entertainment system)
– portable latrine
– AC
– heater
– kitchen with stove

So how fast is set up? Well, they park it, open it (it unfolds from the center), and press inflate. They spend a few more seconds securing the outer perimeter of the inflatable around the travel trailer, and it’s done in about 1 and a half minutes. The whole process everything included takes about 5 minutes. NOTE: with the air inflation system, there are no more tent frames. It’s now Air Poles (that inflate for structure). It’s powered by a 12 volt leisure battery.

This travel trailer camp unit is 12.5 feet long.

Rugged Compact Trailer for Go-Anywhere Camping

RVs January 1, 2016

Rugged Compact Trailer for Go-Anywhere Camping

Solar panels, propane tank, bike rack, cook area, sleeping area, and all in a compact, rugged little travel trailer teardrop unit. This one is by Inka Outdoor, and it’s called the Venture OHV Off-Road… Rough Ridge Edition.

“Rough Ridge Edition is a fresh take on the overland adventure camper. A rugged yet fairly lightweight approach (considering that many expedition rigs are based on 20,000lb or heavier chassis) the Venture OHV™ brings serious long-haul offroad capability to lighter vehicle packages such as the Jeep Wrangler or Toyota Landcruiser. No longer limited to small-box “Jeep” style trailers or the ever-popular “once setup you can’t go anywhere” rooftop vehicle tent, adventurers and travelers now have the option of bringing some serious civilization along. Base-camping while still being able to use your vehicle is now practical.

Equipped with all the standard comfort and livability features of our Brevard Hustler™ street model camper and riding on a time-proven off road suspension design, we believe that the Venture OHV™ has what it takes.

“Riding on 32 inch B. F. Goodrich All-Terrain T/A’s mounted on steel crawler rims (standard) the designed-for-purpose chassis is specifically fixture-built. The twin trailing A-arms are mirrors of each other and capable of more than 2X the rated worse-case impact suspension loads. Derated Firestone Ride-Rite™ air-springs support the body and provide a smooth, durable ride with onboard compressor and wireless adjustable remote. Rancho 9000™ adjustable shocks the bumps. 10″ electric drum brakes (with optional parking brake) provide the stopping power and electric-over-hydraulic disc brakes are available. Oversized polyurethane bushings support the suspension components and grade-8 fasteners are used. 11 gage rectangular tube and 3/16″ laser cut steel components make up the frame rails and brackets. All of this is protected in critical areas by 14 gage steel skid plates and removable (repairable) tubular rock-rails protect the body edges. Jeep-style 11 gage aluminum diamond-plate fenders are standard and diamond plate protects the composite camper body in critical areas.”

If you need other items for camping, Inka can do that too. Here’s a basic list of their offerings: Racks (cargo basket, bike, boat, cooler, Jerry-can, game, extra propane, etc) — Multiple batteries, charging systems, voltages, etc. — Solar systems- various configurations — Hot water- electric, Diesel or LP gas. Built in or off-board — Outside shower with privacy curtain — Heat and air conditioning – from basic electric to LP gas/diesel heating systems — Upgraded water tankage – 9gal fresh/9gal grey or 18 gal fresh standard , 38 gallon fresh is option — Entertainment/communications options from simple radio/HDTV to Iridium or Globalstar sat-coms — Complete off-grid inverter systems with automatic changeover/generator ops — Generator and locking system — Tool boxes — Refrigeration — Built-in fly-rod storage — Air compressor systems with accessories — Rear winch — Rooftop tents (various manufacturers) — Side tents (custom) — Screened enclosure (custom) — Spare tire/wheel racks/carriers — Electric over hydraulic disc brakes (Australia compatible) — Parking brake— Remote door locks.

The Timberleaf Trailer is a Compact and Light Camping Option

RVs January 1, 2016

The Timberleaf Trailer is a Compact and Light Camping Option

This travel trailer has gotten attention for its stylish design, combined with stylish features. It’s the Timberleaf trailer, and from what I can see this is the only travel trailer the company is making right now, so they must be pretty focused on it:

“Bringing you only the finest details, and quality craftsmanship that can only come from years of fine woodworking, we are proud to present to you a product that we are truly enthralled to create.

“Quality at every turn. Meticulous details are what makes a Timberleaf trailer stand apart; and no detail goes unnoticed. Featuring a fully insulated cabin to keep the wind, heat, and cold at bay. Available in a multitude of colors with stead-fast anodized aluminum siding, and clear anodized top, your trailer can be as unique as yourself.

“Weighing in at less than 1200 pounds dry, and a 120 pound tongue weight with optional accessories, this featherweight trailer tows like a dream, you’ll hardly even know it’s there.

“In order to achieve the counter height and feel we wanted, a traditional cooler wasn’t an option. We’re proud to introduce to you, our hand-made custom cooler line. With the same ice-retention as the leading brands, but dimensions to match our specific requirements, perfectly mated to our 100% Baltic Birch drawer is our Birch cooler.

With details rarely seen, such as genuine leather handles, beautifully finished birch, and dovetail joinery, this cooler is built to last, and to impress all who encounter it.

“Outfitted with one of the largest skylights of any teardrop in the industry, the cabin feels spacious and open. With customized storage cubbies behind the headboard, and a shelf for storage above. Our gorgeous natural wood folding shelves on either side of the cabin are there when you want them, and stashed away when you don’t. In addition to this, we’ve created an array of cabinets above the footwell, you’ll have plenty of space to store all of your essentials, and then some!

“We’ve fully insulated the cabin, every surface has been insulated with one-inch thick foam, locked between two layers of Birch plywood, the cold winter air will be kept at bay while you and yours will be warm and cozy inside our spacious cabin.

“Our mattress is a custom-made Colorado Queen mattress – the same length as a standard queen mattress, only 3″ narrower to fit our trailer perfectly! Standard with a four-inch-thick dual-density foam mattress, and available upgrade to memory foam, you’ll be more at home in your trailer than your own bed. Rest up, adventures await.”
