I'm always on the lookout for small off-pavement trailers -- this one looks like a possibility, if one ignores the $49K price tag!

Taxa Mantis Overland

If anyone has first-hand info, I'd be grateful for your thoughts.

I saw one while camping in the Columbia Gorge this last summer. Since we spent many years in our tent trailer the wife and I were interested. Taxa makes two sizes of this trailer, I believe the Mantis is the larger one. It looked pretty neat and was plenty large enough. I looked at them online and thought that the prices were pretty high. Of course, I am old, and all the prices are high the way I look at it. A sticking point for me would be that there is no black tank, just a cassette toilet and very little fresh water storage.

I'd opt for a Black Series Camper instead. The Mantis has very small holding tanks. The BS campers have configurable holding tanks of far greater capacity.
