Jeep introduces dedicated line of off-road camper trailers

Breaking new and hopefully fertile ground in the industry, Jeep and the Mopar division have unveiled a pair of new camper trailers specifically geared to the demands of the off-road set. Boasting styling cues from the go-anywhere Wrangler Rubicon, both the $9,995 Jeep Trail Edition and $11,995 Jeep Extreme Trail Edition offer impressive amenities along with the ability to get down and dirty yet still come back alive.

Both these canvas-topped homes-away-from-home are fitted with a queen-size bed, a sofa, stowable center table, built-in aluminum cabinet and 110-volt power supply. While sharing a torsion bar/trailing-arm suspension and diamond-plated aluminum cladding, the Trail Edition features a lightweight aluminum framework, provides 12 inches of ground clearance and wraps its 32-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires around 17-inch alloy wheels that use the same five-bolt pattern as most Jeep vehicles. The Extreme Trail Edition steps up its game and gets a more robust structure that brings an underbody skid plate, high-mount fenders and 15 inches of ground clearance. It's also shod with a 35-inch version of the BFG rubber and is designed to accommodate up to a 37-inch tire fitment for the hardest-core boonie bounders. Buyers of either trailer can replace the standard two-inch ball hitch with an optional 360-degree heavy-duty pintle hitch for easier off-road maneuvering.

The Jeep Trail Edition and Jeep Extreme Trail Edition trailers go on sale in August. They can be ordered as Mopar accessory items directly through any Jeep dealer.
