Answers to your questions

There are a lot of questions to ask yourself when purchasing a top-of-the-line camper trailer. Here are some of the most common ones we receive: 

Why do you sell through dealers?

Operating through a dealer network allows us to keep campers in stock around the country. It’s also a great way to see a Boreas without making the trip to our shop in Colorado. Dealers also provide financing and a more secure transaction than buying through deposit-based builders. Take a look at our blog about dealerships for more insight.

Why is no-wood construction so important?

Boreas Campers are built with a combination of metal and composite. This has allowed us to build a lighter and stronger trailer that will last a lifetime. With nothing to rot, mold, or degrade overtime your investment in adventure is safe. Read more about this on our blog post about ditching wood.

What is the weight of a Boreas Camper?

Boreas AT - 1,650lbs

Boreas XT - 1,950lbs

Boreas MXT - 2,100lbs

What is the tongue weight?

Boreas AT - 200lbs

Boreas XT - 225lbs

Boreas MXT - 210lbs (does not include the weight of a motorcycle)

Please check out this blog post on the importance of tongue weight and trailer balance.

How many people can a Boreas sleep?

The Boreas AT, XT, and MXT sleep two adults inside.

For additional sleeping you can add the ARB awning room enclosure or you can add a roof top tent. Properly equipped you can sleep up to 6 people!

The upcoming XT-12 is equipped to sleep 4.

What is the lead time for a camper?

Typically, our network of dealers will always have a camper in stock. If a camper is not is stock the turn around time is no more than 1-2 weeks.

What is your warranty?

Lifetime Warranty!! Our lifetime +2 warranty is the best in the industry. We stand behind our products without hesitation.

How long will my battery last off grid?

All campers come standard with a 125-amp hour AGM battery. Depending on use this will last 3-4 days. This is based on zero charge from the solar or vehicle.

With the 110w solar panel or a portable system the battery will run all your needs for weeks on end. With proper power management a camper can run for months without the need to plug in.

Can I have water in my system in the winter?

The water system on the XT and MXT needs to be winterized when camping in below freezing temperatures. There is a step by step guide in the owner’s manual.

The XT-12 has tanks and lines to allow for winter use.

Why is Timbren axel-less suspension standard?

If our campers had a standard trailer axle, we could not, in good conscious, call it “off-road”. Timbren provides superior ride and tow performance when compared to a leaf spring or torsion axle. The independent suspension offers over 20” of ground clearance for any trail you want to take it on. It also lowers the vibration and abuse caused from standard trailer suspensions.

See our blog post here about Timbren Suspension and why we use it.

What types of options are available?

Though the Boreas Campers come “turn-key”, there are plenty of options and upgrades available.

Roof top tents, portable A/C, dual batteries, portable solar, shower room enclosures, bike rack systems, jerry cans, and much more.

If you have a question about add-ons to your Boreas Camper reach out to your nearest dealer or contact Boreas Campers directly.

What type of tow vehicle do I need?

It is always best to check your vehicle owner’s manual or connect directly with the manufacturer. Typically, we recommend a V6-powered vehicle however, with the ever-changing performance and capabilities of vehicles some 4 cylinders are now powerful enough. We recommend NEVER maxing out your tow rating.

What is the dry weight?

Boreas AT - 1650lbs

Boreas XT - 1950lbs

Boreas MXT - 2100lbs

Boreas XT-12 - 3200lbs

Do the campers have brakes?

Yes all campers come standard with 12 inch electric brakes.

Can I match wheels and tires to my tow vehicle?

We do not match wheels and tires to vehicles. We use a very specific wheel off-set and backspace to give you the best performance and durability of the Timbren suspension. Using different wheel and tire set ups will cause undue stress and premature wear on the suspension.

We also run a narrow tire (9.3” wide). A wider tire can cause hydroplaning of this size of camper, ultimately lowering your safety and performance of the trailer and tow vehicle.

Where most builders use a 10” brake we use a 12” brake which limits the available bolt patterns.

Will this camper fit in a garage?

The Boreas AT, XT, and MXT will fit in a standard garage. Overall height of the camper with the awning is 77.5”.

Can I customize my camper?

In order to offer the best value, we typically do not offer custom options. This allows us to streamline the manufacturing process and reduce costs. If you have a question on this, please contact your nearest dealer or reach out directly to Boreas Campers.
