The world of overlanding needs more lightweight adventure trailer options. And the offerings from new guys on the block TetonX are looking pretty damn enticing. Having a full camper bolted onto your roof or in the back of your truck is an incredible luxury when overlanding, but it isn’t always an option. An excellent alternative to is an adventure camper you can tow behind your rig.
You may think sleep-in adventure trailers are inherently heavy and necessitate a gas-guzzling 4×4 to give you any hope of even getting down the driveway. The trailers from TetonX, though, start at just 700lbs with the ultralight Jake model — the bare minimum tow machine you’d is a halfway decent side-by-side. Move up to one of the larger, more complex 10-foot Hybrid popup trailers and you’re still only looking at 2,400lb worth of camper to pull. The Off-Axis model, the middleweight of the group, can sleep up to four people comfortably, yet tips the scales at a scant base weight of 1,350 lbs — no problem for a Jeep Wrangler.
The secret to any decent adventure trailer is a healthy amount of lightweight composites, wood and aluminum. The TetonX trailers have all that in spades on top of all the customizable options you can tack on, like an outdoor kitchenette for the smallest trailer and a rooftop racks and tents for the bigger models. The versatility that comes with a lack of weight is really what opens these trailers up to a wider audience, though.
