Mopar's new 4x4 trailer for Jeep

2010-07-22 06:59

Space at a premium inside your Wrangler Unlimited due to family commitments? Thanks to Mopar’s new off-road graded trailer set-up you can stay out in the bush longer – without sacrificing amenities.

Chrysler’s accessories arm Mopar has launched a new off-road grade trailer for Jeep owners with supplemental luggage requirements.

Jeep’s Wrangler range hardly lacks for off-road ability.

There are times though, when trail-driving with the entire family (and associated goodies), where the Wrangler’s luggage capacity is stretched beyond its limit.

As a solution to this state of affairs Mopar has developed a new Jeep Extreme Trail Edition Camper.

Simply put – it is a very tough off-road graded trailer.

Riding atop a heavy-duty frame the Jeep Extreme Trail Edition Camper connects via a heavy-duty tow-hitch (sporting a 360-degree rotation axis).

In terms of off-road capability it sports a full-underbody skid plate and rolls 890mm tall tyres BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tyres.

Suffice to say, you are hardly going to break it trailing the Wrangler across severely broken terrain.

From a utility perspective the Jeep Extreme Trail Edition Camper features a 110V inverter, foldable bed and is claimed to sleep (very snugly) up to four people.
