For those looking for a cool off-road camper trailer to match their Jeep, the new Jeep Trail and Extreme Trail Campers sold through Mopar will be available in August at authorized Jeep dealers. We actually provided images of the new trailer during the 2010 Easter Jeep Safari event that Mopar hosted back in April.
Check out a photo gallery of those vehicles here.
According to the press release from Jeep, the new campers are really designed to match the off-road attitude of the Jeep product. “The Jeep brand is widely known for providing its customers with a sense of freedom and adventure, with a mix of vehicles to take them wherever they want to go,” said Mike Manley, President and Chief Executive Officer – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “Thanks to our friends at Mopar, the Jeep experience may now be taken to a new level. Families may hook up an off-road Jeep camper to their capable Jeep vehicle and enjoy an ultimate outdoor adventure that no other manufacturer can offer.”
There are a number of cool features of the campers. Each features a17-inch cast-aluminum wheels (that matches the 5-lug by 5-inch bolt pattern like most Jeep spare tire), taillights, fender flares, rear bumper (Trail Edition camper only), badging and hood-tie downs. Here’s a little more breakdown on each camper edition:
Jeep Trail Edition Camper
Unlike conventional recreational campers, the Jeep Trail Edition camper features an extensive use of lightweight tubular-aluminum construction (no wood or fiberboard materials) in order to mitigate the additional load on the Jeep tow vehicle and make operation a breeze. The Jeep Trail Edition features Jeep Wrangler Rubicon’s 32-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires, a unique torsion-bar and trailing-arm suspension provide confident maneuvering and on-trail articulation, while heavy-duty diamond-plated aluminum is strategically used to handle abuse from the elements. Once opened, the camper reveals 76 inches of headroom and space to sleep up to four people. A comfortable multi-use sofa folds out into a bed, while a queen-sized bed provides maximum comfort for two adults. The built-in cabinet provides space for camping gear, while all-aluminum construction delivers a clean look and contributes to the camper’s lightweight design. A stowable center table offers occupants a place for dining or a surface for board games, while a 110-volt power inverter provides additional cooking, heating, cooling and entertainment options.
