The first necessity for a great camping trip is picking the right mode of transportation. Whether you choose an RV, trailer, or camper – you need to select an automotive that will perfectly cater to your traveling requirements, and make you feel at home, even when you’re away from home! I mean, there’s nothing more comforting or exciting than lounging about in a cozy trailer/camper while you explore the countryside. You never feel out of place, because these little vehicles manage to feel like a home on wheels! Fill it up with your dear belongings, and it’s your home away from home. Not to mention the designs today are super innovative and inventive. From a futuristic RV that has been insulated with sheep wool to an off-roading Highland 60 trailer with a queen-sized bed, kitchen, and shower – these fully-equipped and excellently designed automobiles are all you need on your next glamping adventures.

1. Coast

Designed by Aero Build, this RV helps you to bounce from one city to another in comfort. Called the Coast, the futuristic RV has been insulated with sheep wool on the inside, which allows it to stay warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. This keeps the interiors well-regulated at all times.

Why is it noteworthy?

The RV is powered by renewable energy, with the help of five 1360-watt solar panels on the roof. It has also been equipped with an 810Ah lithium-ion battery bank to power the trailer when it’s on the road. It also includes an electric tongue jack.

What we like

  • Insulated with sheep wool
  • Eco-friendly

What we dislike

2. The GO Camper

The GO Camper is a towable, lightweight camper that can attach to vehicles of any size, even a Mini Cooper!

Why is it noteworthy?

SylvanSport, a USA-based, outdoor adventure goods company, developed their GO Camper to brace all elements while also providing an accessible and versatile living space while getting off the grid for a bit. Described by National Geographic Adventure as the “Coolest. Camper. Ever,” the GO Camper is a super lightweight, towable pop-up tent camper that can accommodate up to four people.

What we like

  • Can be attached to vehicles of all sizes, even the tiny Mini Cooper
  • An equipment rack provides extra space to keep all the accessory equipment that will make maximize any camping trip adventure

What we dislike

3. The Highland 60


The Highland 60 is Sasquatch Expedition Campers’ latest and most premium trailer! Measuring 16.3 feet long, and 6.8 feet high, the flagship trailer features a queen-size memory foam mattress, and a full-size kitchen, so you feel completely at home even outdoors!

Why is it noteworthy?

Other amenities onboard include a three-stove burner, sink, fridge, on-demand water heater, an outdoor shower, and ample storage on the inside and outside. You may prefer a tent mount trailer, but this one is delivered with a flat roof, rendering it a boxy shape, that makes the overall appearance compact and cozy: an option worth exploring. But if you’re adamant, Sasquatch offers a rooftop tent add-on, basically as a second-bedroom option.

What we like

  • The interiors are fully insulated
  • Can handle the roughest trails

What we dislike

4. The Hitch Hotel


The Hitch Hotel is a small towable, expandable, and stowable trailer that measures only 3.5 feet once it is folded for storage. You can tag the trailer to the back of any car, and it retracts a bit over 7 feet, occupying minimum space.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Hitch Hotel features a fiberglass body, designed to keep the overall weight of the trailer down to the bare minimum. Meant to sleep you after the sun goes down, it can be used to stow your gear when it’s trailing behind your car. Despite its form factor, the Hitch Hotel remains close to a conventional trailer in form and function. It has a marine-grade canvas lining on the inside with padded insulation to maintain overnight temperature for inhabitants.

What we like

  • Well-ventilated
  • Compact and tiny form

What we dislike

  • Owners have to invest in their own sleeping mattress

5. Vespa Teardrop Trailer


Thomas Burick designed a micro teardrop trailer to accompany his 1962 Vespa. It is created from foam topped with a sheet of homemade fiberglass. Its design is based on a 1947 Cabin Car trailer, which has been worked up to let Thomas “Roam in Foam.”

Why is it noteworthy?

Since Thomas wanted the trailer to be more than a place to snooze in after a long ride; a kitchenette has been provided with ample storage space: cabinets and shelves with sliding doors. The shape of the trailer is nicely arched for headspace and stability on the 25-pound base it stations itself on. The interiors are well-lit with natural light penetrating the windows made of acrylic. The door is finished with metal skirting for additional stability.

What we like

  • Equipped with a kitchenette
  • Well-arched for headspace and stability

What we dislike

  • It may not be the most stable ride against strong winds and rain

6. eStream and Thor Vision Vehicle


Airstream announced two EV concepts called the eStream and Thor Vision Vehicle. The eStream trailer developed in close quarters with European subsidiary Erwin Hymer Group and tech company ZF, addresses the lingering issue with most campers and RVs – that being – the need for extra power which in turn limits the range of towing vehicles.

Why is it noteworthy?

Whether the eStream is hooked onto a pure electric vehicle like the Tesla Model 3 or the hybrid Ford Escape – the trailer by Thor Industries (Airstream’s parent company) is not just dead weight. This is done with the dual independent motors and the two onboard lithium-ion battery packs. The Thor’s advanced electrical architecture brings to the fore regenerative braking energy as the motors can be used to apply torque to the wheels in both directions.

What we like

  • The trailer can be operated remotely via an app when it’s detached from the towing vehicle
  • Comes with solar panels for off-grid camping on extended adventures

What we dislike

  • The eStream weighs more than traditional trailers

7. The Lagom Series


The pop-topper camper market is growing at a good pace as adventure junkies like the core idea of this clever design. Colorado-based Rossmönster Overland impressed hardcore travelers with the Ford F-150-based Baja and now they’ve set the stakes high with the Lagom Series.

Why is it noteworthy?

The go-anywhere camper has plenty of space and the silver lining is its floor-to-ceiling transparent panels for uninterrupted panoramic views to experience nature like never before. This luxury comes courtesy of the aluminum walls of the Lagom topper which folds down flat when in driving mode. When it reaches the campsite, this setup can be deployed in mere seconds.

What we like

  • The occupants have a bed-to-ceiling view that most campers will appreciate
  • If you’re skeptical about privacy, the topper comes with window covers

What we dislike

8. The Space X Air Trailer


The Space X Air trailer is Australia’s first automatic opening, stabilizing, and inflating off-road camper for the ultimate glamping experience.

Why is it noteworthy?

Delivering one way for campers to enjoy the great outdoors with a bit of glamour, the Space X Air from Mars Campers is Australia’s first automatic opening, stabilizing, and inflating off-road camper. Attachable as a flatbed trailer, Space X Air self-inflates with the push of a button to reveal a spacious, integrated living space.

What we like

  • The designers at Mars Campers were sure to include two 100L water tanks, a portable toilet
  • Features a 200W portable solar panel

What we dislike

9. The FlexCamp Off-road Camper Trailer


Designed for urban landscapes while exploring the countryside, the FlexCamp off-road camper trailer expands vertically and to one side to increase the inside space by almost double. It’s essentially a very basic trailer or pickup-top box that morphs into a micro-cabin for four people!

Why is it noteworthy?

Given the German company’s prowess in developing robust, all-weather campers in the past, the FlexCamp is another winning design in the making. Mind you, the boxy shape makes it perfect to mount on a pickup bed too. Once parked for camping, the 126 inches long camper trailer’s hydraulic system lifts the roof up and expands the sidewall. That turns the camper’s height from 79 inches to 120 inches, and the width from 80 inches to 131 inches.

What we like

  • Expands to the size of a micro-cabin
  • The drawers beneath the bed are accessible both from the outside and inside

What we dislike

10. The Switchback Trailer


If you always wanted to hook a hardcore off-roading trailer to match your Jeep’s capability to conquer tough terrain, then the Switchback trailer by Off Grid Trailers is a god-sent blessing. Perfectly tailored for people who are a bit skeptical about going for an off-roading trip to the Rocky Mountains with a trailer towing at the rear, this hardcore trailer won’t let you have any semblance of even the slightest doubt. If your Jeep can conquer that stretch of a rocky patch (not meant for your average vehicle), then this trailer will have you covered.

Why is it noteworthy?

Although the trailer has a tow-friendly construction for any off-roading four-wheeler you hook onto it, the Jeep-matched wheels and the wheelbase makes it ultra-compatible with the vehicle. Switchback weighs just 1,300 lb thanks to the aluminum and steel body construction –giving it the right balance for any arduous trip. The makers have been mindful enough to offer the storage abundant trailer in two configurations – one having a rear kitchen setup (popular with most of the US Overlanding vehicles) while the other offering a side kitchen option.

What we like

  • Equipped with solar charging
  • The tent increases space for two people

What we dislike
