Off-road trailer-maker OPUS releases its first hard-sided camper trailer. Go off the grid in luxurious comfort.
Overlanders, road-trippers, and comfort-loving adventurers take note: There’s a new camper in town. It’s sleek, luxurious, and ready to go off road. OPUS makes several off-road trailers, including the infamous inflatable Air Camper.
But this is its first foray into the world of full-size, hard-sided campers. And it’s left no luxury behind.
Compressed air and 'tubes' instead of poles pitch the Opus Air Camper quickly. Read more…
OPUS OP 15: The Expandable, Off-Road Trailer
The OP 15 pairs off-road capabilities with the luxurious comfort of on-road campers. But what’s most immediately eye-catching is its ability to expand.
It has a pop-top for extra headroom, an extendable interior, and an entirely functional kitchen slides out on the exterior. This expandable design makes for less bulk while towing yet more space while camping.
With a curb weight of 4,960 pounds, you won’t be pulling this with a car. But it’s a modest weight for the included features and no problem for even a small pickup. It collapses down to 15 feet and is designed to handle narrow, rough roads.
Twin shock-absorbers and trailing arm independent suspension for each wheel make for a smoother ride on uneven terrain.
Roughing it isn’t a concern when you camp with the OP 15. It can hold an impressive 63 gallons of fresh water. And it comes with a 17-gallon gray water tank and 10-gallon black water tank.
For electricity, three 100Ah AGM batteries are linked to a 300W solar system to keep you powered on the go.
The exterior slide-out kitchen comes with a prep deck, stove, pantry, and Dometic CFX75 fridge.
Inside, you’ll find a king bed and twin bunk beds. There’s also a full bathroom complete with shower, sink, and chemical toilet.
Add in the on-demand hot water heater, air conditioning, integrated speaker entertainment system, and television, and this may be nicer than your home.
We haven’t tested one to see how well it handles off road. But if its performance is as good as its looks, this could be a serious contender in the boondocking arena. Pack up the family, fill the tanks, go off the grid, and get away from it all.
The OP 15 retails for $45,000 and is available now.
