You may remember ADAK’s Outpost camper (pictured above left), a spacious travel trailer built to handle rough roads and provide a comfy basecamp in the back country. The downside was it’s shear size, which made it impractical to pull over much more than moderate trails. For those of us seeking an equal level of all-weather comfort in a smaller trail-ready package, ADAK has unveiled the Bivouac.
The Bivouac is a fully self-contained 11.9-foot bunkhouse on wheels, with sleeping for up to 4 adults, based on the same stalwart construction of the Outpost. Standard features include a dinette which converts to a bed, rear bunk, interior and exterior lighting, 450 amp-hours of 12 volt power storage, full bath with instant hot water heater, a 43 gallon fresh water supply, cassette style black water storage, electric brakes and a heavy duty 7,500-lb 8 lug torsion axle. The trailer can be custom built to fit practically any needs, with common options including solar charging, generator, air conditioning, propane furnace, inside galley, refrigerator, stove, microwave, 4-season water system, additional bunks, roof racks and ladders, and additional gear storage.
With a dry weight of 2,925 pounds, the trailer is well within the towing capabilities of many mid-sized SUVs and small trucks. The Bivouac’s overall dimensions are 16’8″ long, 8′ wide, and 10’3″ tall with a ground clearance of 20.75 inches at the frame. Pricing on the base model starts just shy of $40,000.
