This off-road-capable adventure trailer carries all your getaway gear, has a platform for your tent, and weighs under 600 pounds.

Overland trucks and RV campers haul just about everything. And while the space is nice, the costs, maintenance, and parking hassles keep many of us from owning one.

Pull-behind “teardrop” trailers are an option that provides sleeping quarters, storage space, and racks for your toys. But even these require a vehicle that has modest towing capacity.

Taxa Outdoor Woolly Bear Adventure Trailer

TAXA Outdoors takes aim at the small-car camper crowd with the 2017 Woolly Bear Adventure Trailer. At 580 pounds (less than some Harleys) and just under 10-feet-long, the Woolly Bear is designed to be pulled by cars with four-cylinder engines. Camry-camper, anyone?

The Woolly Bear has a camp kitchen, gear and pantry storage, and a pull-out drawer for coolers (YETI 45 is sold as an option).

It also has an open-air cargo bay to secure gas cans, propane bottles, gray-water bins, or other random gear.

Up top, the Woolly Bear accommodates a two- or three-person roof-top tent.The company provides load bars that install atop the 5′ x 7′6″ cargo deck. At present, the trailer is not designed for use with a ground tent.

You can also use the roof to haul kayaks, snowboards, or bikes.

The Camper You Can Pull With Your Subaru

At just 1,100 pounds, the Happier Camper can be towed by many small cars, yet still packs a lot into the small trailer. Read more…

Alternatively, an accessory hitch on the back can receive a rear bike rack, freeing up the top deck.

This trailer is also built to go off-road. It has a steel chassis, 15-inch wheels, and 12-inches of ground clearance.

It costs a fraction of other pull-behinds, which can exceed $30,000. The base price for the Woolly Bear is $7,000.

Its size means the Woolly Bear lacks the storage capacity of bulkier pull-behind options. And it’s important to note that many pull-behinds, by nature, have sleeping quarters. The Woolly Bear leaves the sleeping arrangements up to you.

But if you can handle stripped-down camping, this could be an ideal fit.
