Boreas Camper trailers are true off-road and off-grid campers designed and built in Denver, Colorado to withstand the most rugged conditions and terrain. All Boreas models come equipped with Timbren axel-less suspension, giving them over 20” of ground clearance, and are one of the few offroad trailers manufactured using absolutely no wood. Replacing wood with composite materials cut the dry weight of the XT trailer to 1,950 lbs while increasing the strength and integrity of the unit. So now the trailer you know and love will last a lifetime (and more!) because of the quality and type of materials used in construction.
The AT model is our entry level and includes a powder-coated steel frame, fully composite construction, lock and roll articulating hitch, roof rack and awning.
The XT model is our turn-key option ready for all of your adventures. It includes everything on the AT plus a full galley kitchen with a 2-burner stove, sink and fridge, instant hot water shower, forced air heater, solar and battery, Maxxair fan and LED lighting in the cabin and kitchen on a dimmer switch.
The MXT model includes all those amenities with a motorcycle rack on the tongue, and adjusted tongue length to carry up to a 400-lb motorcycle, or up to 5 mountain bikes with available 1UP racks.
All Boreas models come with a lifetime +2 warranty. With a heavy duty, built in the US construction, the only thing limiting the Boreas camper is the tow vehicle pulling it. As we like to say, camp is where you tow it!
