The Mogo Trailer is an open cargo hauler and camper

Over the past few years, we've seen a barrage of tiny, ultralight camping trailers hit the market. We won't say that it's a new trend, since man has been constructing lightweight road trip shelters for nearly as long as he's had an automobile to tow them, but some interesting ideas and designs have definitely been bubbling to the surface lately. The Mogo Freedom trailer is the latest member of this rising tide, opening the walls of camping trailer design to create a super-simple, ultra-versatile shelter and toy hauler.  Read More

At this year's Japan Camping Car Show in Tokyo, Honda has unveiled a two-piece concept that takes the kei car camping. Based on Honda's popular N-Box that was released in 2012 and following on from other N-Box-based concepts on display at the 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon, the N-Truck looks like a micro semi-articulated truck and couples with the N-Camp, a pint-sized caravan/trailer.  Read More

Last year, German camper specialist Knaus Tabbert used the Düsseldorf Caravan Salon to present its vision of the future camping trailer.

The Turtleback Trailer at Overland Expo 2014

We saw dozens of camping trailers at last month's Overland Expo. Some, like the Moby1, we've covered in the past, but there were also a number of new models. One of our favorites was the Turtleback Trailer, which packs many of the comforts of home in a rugged body that's ready to climb and claw its way through the desert, mountains and forest.  Read More

Sleeping high above the cold, icy ground

Built from military technology and optimized for off-road adventure, the Xventure XV-2 trailer from Schutt Industries is a versatile gear-hauler and people-sleeper. Instead of cramping trailer space with its tent hardware, the rugged, off-road tow-along has an adjustable upper deck for sleeping and a lower cargo bed for hauling tools and toys. The trailer can be customized with everything you need to survive and thrive in the backwoods.  Read More

The hydraulic lifts seen on the side lift the sleeping 'penthouse' up

With removable, modular living equipment, camping trailers like the Teal seamlessly switch between sleeping people and hauling toys. At the recent Caravan Salon in Dusseldorf, German materials manufacturer Vohringer showed a trailer concept designed to do both at the same time. The Speed-Wagon uses a hydraulic lift system to open up space for a motorbike while still sleeping occupants comfortably.  Read More

The US Department of Energy will be using fuel cells to power the refrigeration units of f...

The refrigeration units used in cold transport trailers are typically powered by small diesel engines, which use up non-renewable fuel and release greenhouse gases, just like their big brothers. The US Department of Energy, however, is looking into an alternative. As part of a two-year pilot project, it’s equipping four such trailers with clean-running hydrogen fuel cells.  Read More
