This might be a case where building what you want makes sense.

I'm guessing but if you don't run a generator with air/con and an outdoor shower is adequate, it would be a fairly simple build.

Yeah, I'm thinking this might be the way for a while. Seems 30k is a drop in the bucket these days.

Thanks everyone!

Outdoor RV is as good as it gets for off-road TTs in the US.

Good luck !

You need a bunk house, but those are usually longer than 24' AND the outdoor kitchen steals space from one bunk !

As for forest service trails, you are not going to find many TT that size that can handle that.

The off-road trailers are nice, but super spensive...

People drag their tt's down rough roads all the time, go slow and it will make it. Though, tt's are not built well, and will suffer eventually.

Dual axles will go down rough surfaces better than single

How far are you driving down said road?

Sleeping 6 and having something small enough to fit down a jeep road is not too realistic.

People make cargo-campers for this type of use. The cargo trailer is built tough and will not fall apart like a camper trailer will, but you either have to build yourself or get something someone else built specifically for their needs that may or may not be suited for yours.

Looking for suggestions for a new TT. A few years back, we owned a unit from Outdoors RV. It seemed well built but was too large for the places we like to camp. We camp as far in the back country that we can in CO/WY/MT. I need a trailer that can handle rough roads/forest service trails/etc.

-need something that can sleep 6 WITHOUT using the eating table for a bed.
-24ish feet box
-outdoor kitchen
-Our budget is only 30k or so.

Recommendations to look at?


Thoroughly search this website to see what TTs these expert folks use:

I have the answer! A hovercraft RV. Can't you just see it gliding over the rough terrain.
Availability? Don't know.
Price? Don't know.
Stupid response? Maybe not. It depends on the budget.

We have a No Boundaries 16.2. One of the reasons we got it is that the road into our subdivision is rougher than anything we've encountered camping. Big tires, high clearance and not too wide. The NoBos come in longer sizes too.No Boundaries Home Page
