Boondocking rv/trailer

by Bob jerritts

Which rv can handle the rigors of boondocking roads , or lack of roads.

For trailers, Nash and outdoors rv seem the most rugged and able to hold up. However, I am leaning toward a motorized rv but none seem durable.

Our Rig
by: Freeradicals1977

Our boondocking rig is a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk and a Taxa Cricket Trek. A perfect go almost anywhere set-up and days upon days of off-grid self sustainability. It's easy to find solitude.

Truck Camper

Thanks Kel!
I guess another common solution is a slide-in truck camper. Don't know why I didn't think of that earlier - since we've considered that option ourselves.

4x4 and high clearance trailer
by: Kel

We use a 4-wheel drive pickup and a twenty foot travel trailer. We drive lot's of gravel and two track roads with shallow washes in the southwest. A shorter, higher clearance trailer would work better. We like to set-up the trailer and do day trips exploring with the truck.

4-wheel drive/high clearance but costly.
by: Marianne

We've long thought it would be nice to have a -wheel drive, high-clearance camper van. Several companies (Sportsmobile is one) will convert or custom build but now you're talking real money unless you can DIY. Some ideas here:

Most people opt to have a 4X4 tow vehicle instead. Or carry dirt bikes or similar to explore off road. They don't take the camper on those really rugged roads.

If you pack a tent for those excursions you could still spend the odd night out there and have the best of both worlds without the high cost.
