Go Off Road With Australia’s ‘Best Camper Trailer’ of 2020

Get off the beaten path and camp in comfort. This burly camper trailer from down under has everything you need.

Australians have a long history of overlanding, and it shows in their high-quality gear. Located on the Gold Coast, Patriot Campers has built a name for itself as a maker of badass, off-road trailers. And the new X3 is no exception.

Not only does this trailer excel off road, but it offers up nearly all the comforts of home. Completely new for 2020, Patriot Campers has designed the X3 to be just as light, capable, and durable as previous models, with the addition of all the live-in features you could possibly need.

And it’s already won Australia’s Camper Trailer of the Year award.

Burly Off-Road Capabilities

The X-Cruise independent suspension keeps the trailer balanced and stable no matter how gnarly the trail gets.

The galvanized steel chassis can take a beating, and the 5-ton-rated rear recovery points mean you can get out of any sticky situations. It has a dry weight of 1,120 kg and is available in five color options.


And anyone looking to carry extra gear or toys will be happy to know it comes standard with an integrated Exorack System. The crossbars are adjustable and fit a variety of third-party mounting systems. Strap on your kayak, bike, or extra jerry cans and hit the road.

Live-In Luxury

But what really sets the X3 apart is the interior. This is the first time Patriot Campers has offered a fully live-in model. The pop-out bunks and bed can sleep up to four people.

And the sleeping area also comes equipped with a convenient zip-up cover, allowing you to leave your bed completely made as you set up and pack down.


With a Pop Up Cafe, Pop Up power station, and space-saving dining table, the X3 packs a lot into a small space. And with the awning-covered exterior space, the outdoor kitchen is equally as plush.

The L-shaped kitchen is complete with a sink, stove, and enough room for a 75L fridge. And everything stores away securely when it’s time to ride the trails.

We haven’t had a chance to test the X3, but from the looks of it, it’s a luxurious, capable camper trailer the whole family will enjoy. At $51,990, it’s certainly an investment, but it offers up a chance to get away from it all while staying plenty comfortable.
