Off Road Camper
« on: January 13, 2021, 02:20:25 PM »
Iím looking for a small (very small) off road camper thatís lightweight, good ground clearance, and is hardside. We will be keeping our Camplite, but have some campsites in mind here in Michigan that are not accessible with a 16TBS. It canít have any tent aspect because of bear. Any thoughts or experiences are welcome!

What's your budget, and are you looking to buy turnkey, or start with a shell and customize ?

These are my favorites. Bummer the lead time is half a year (180 days) to get one made. Decent price range and great mod opportunities.

I had not looked carefully at the Intech Luna. Some local dealers have one or two in stock. Time for a field trip!

Both the Intech and the Weeroll fit budget and uses. The Intech might be my wife's preference and the Weeroll (with some fun mods) might be mine. After we look around a bit, maybe we'll have to do "rock/paper/scissors".

The teardrop I bought and have modified for ground clearance and offroad (not to say overlanding) is specifically for when she is not invited. That makes things easier.

We "toured" a GeoPro 12SRK this weekend. The towing frame is steel, but the upper framing is all aluminum and the sides and top are an Azdel/foam/fiberglas laminate. It's small, but has possibilities for our off-road camping.

Nice, I had three tear drops. This looks like a great option for "Flying Solo"
