Off-Road and Off-the-Grid Basecamp

Designed and built by Into The Wild Expeditions in Colorado, the Boreas XT teardrop trailer is a true off-road and off-the-grid camper. With independent suspension and 17 inches of ground clearance the only limit to this trailer is the vehicle towing it. On board water, 100 watts of solar power, and sleeping for two makes Colorado’s backcountry easily accessible.

The Boreas XT is completely turnkey. The galley kitchen comes fully equipped with a Dometic 12v fridge/freezer, sink, and two burner stove. The solar kit will keep your deep cycle AGM battery topped off during extended off-the-grid adventures. Bring all your gear and accessories with ample storage in the cabin and kitchen cabinets. With a dry weight of just over 1600 pounds and electric brakes it is easily towed by any sized vehicle.
