In the last few years the North American trailer market has exploded. A dozen new manufacturers have entered the fray and existing brands are expanding their offerings with each successive season. Just when it appeared things had reached a saturation point, another trailer option entered the mix––but with a twist.
The latest entry in the North American trailer market is no upstart or hobby business housed in someone’s garage. For over 25 years, Conqueror Off Road Campers has provided overlanders with rugged, capable, and well-appointed trailers built for the demands of extended backcountry travel. Used extensively in the Outback and across the harsh expanses of Africa and beyond, they are certainly well proven. They have also been as rare as hen’s teeth here in the states––until now.
Based in Ohio, Conqueror North America is bringing these pinnacle trailers Stateside with turn-key campers. Buyers can even select from a list of available options just as they could if they were buying direct from the factory in South Africa. The initial offering includes four models ranging from compact and comfortable to positively opulent. All of them come with Conqueror’s legendary off-road capability.
The engineers at Conqueror understand well how to build a trailer for the unique demands of the overlander. They know the enemy of a trailer can be many seemingly innocuous things. Constant vibrations, dust and water intrusion, and repeated hard impacts all conspire to destroy trailers, so they have created designs and manufacturing processes that address those challenges. Complexity is kept to a minimum without limiting designs. CNC machining methods are paired to rivets and high modulus polyurethane bonding agents to join components much the way it is done in the aerospace industry. Even the frame is hot-dip galvanized to reduce the risk of corrosion over time. The end result is a product with maximum strength, minimal weight, and excellent long-term durability. Their robust suspension systems ensure years of hard use and possess the off-road capability required to access the remote camping locations overlanders favor.
With a deposit to delivery time of 8-14 weeks, and no importation hurdles to navigate, the North American overlander can now drive away with Australia’s finest with no hassles or headaches.
