Nice pics and neat video. Care to tell us more about that trailer? I haven't seen something like that before.
Thank you 😊

We’ve been ATV camping enthusiasts since we were old enough to go out camping on our own. Back in the day it was, strap as much gear and food as we could to the back rack of the old Honda Foreman and head out into the sticks. The advent of the SxSs made it possible to haul more and go farther/longer. Still, it’s hard to pack enough gas and food to go for extended trips without going back to civilization for more food and fuel.

A little over a year ago my brother got the idea to build camping trailer that was light enough to pull with the Side by Sides, but with a suspension that would handle the kind of terrain we commonly ride. Single axle trailers were too bouncy and all the gear would be thrown all over before we got to camp.

The first trailers were designed to work with the Truck Bed Tent from Kodiak Canvas and the idea is to trade hauling weight for towing weight. Instead of loading up the machine, we’d load the trailer and then go out and base camp. Using these trailers, we can haul much more than we ever could with just the machines which means longer trips and farther away, but also we don’t need to haul all our gear the whole time. We set up a base camp in an area we want to ride and explore and leave everything there except what we need for the day’s ride.

After several camping trips we started adding improvements and refining the trailer itself. We managed to lighten it up a couple hundred pounds, made one with a rooftop tent, added a shower/privacy attachment and onboard water storage, an Awning on the RTT version and closed in the area under the deck for a storage compartment.

Empty weight on the conestoga style trailer is around 860 pounds and the RTT style is around 1100 depending on the Rooftop Tent model.

Our original suspension was a walking beam system we designed suspended from a springed axle. The next big improvement was to use a Timbren Axelless system with our Walking Beams to significantly improve the ride.

All of this was done for our own use but it wasn’t long before people started showing interest so we started building them for sale. My brother started HighCountry Unlimited and we got busy building more. 😊

We’ve done a couple events to show them off and here in October we’ll have them at Trail Hero and UTV Takeover at Sand Hollow in Hurricane, Utah.

Ask a simple question and get pulled into a infomercial 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣. Seriously, that is pretty cool to come up and design a trailer like that.
