The Top 5 Overlanding Trailers I Would Buy in a Heartbeat
Which one do you like?
Last week, I shared the pros and cons of overlanding trailers. Like most RVers, you probably decided the cost is way too high. But, if you did have the money or the need for a serious off-road rig, chances are you feel at least a little tempted. This week, I'll share the top five rigs currently tempting me.
Why Would I Want an Overlanding Trailer?
To be clear, I would never give up my Keystone RV for full-time living in such small trailers. But, when you live year-round in your vacation home, you might find yourself looking at something else for short-term adventures.
Disclaimer: I am a Keystone RV Ambassador and bought their trailer two years before joining the program. Thoughts and opinions are my own.
My Keystone RV is an excellent full-time home, but I have no desire to take it on longer trips. For example, I'm going to Baja California Sur this summer, 900 miles south of my current location in Mexico. Will I take the trailer with me? Absolutely not. I'll use the rooftop tent on my FJ Cruiser.
So, why bother with a trailer if I already have a rooftop tent? The RTT is excellent for sleeping, but little else. I would need a more elaborate setup to stay away longer and get work done along the way.
What 5 Overlanding Trailers Have I Considered?
I've said before that I wanted the biggest one I could afford when I first considered RVing. The RV I had in mind was a Keystone Outback with two bedrooms and 1.5 baths. It was perfect! But, when COVID-19 hit, I recognized the importance of mobility. My current RV presented the ideal compromise, but there were other temptations along the way.
