The Ultimate Hunting Trailers

The Ultimate Hunting Trailers

I have never felt that camping trailers at least the "house on wheels" variety that most people think of when you say "trailer" are worth the hassle for hunters.


For starters, getting them into truly remote places where you actually want to go is pretty difficult, if not impossible. In that case hunters are relegated to an "improved" (and I use the term lightly) campground with power, septic, water, lights, bathroom facilities and other people "camping" right next door (waking up and saying "howdy neighbor" to a complete stranger should not be part of anyone's camping experience).

Factor in the extra fuel expended towing one of these monsters, plus the fee for the campground, and it would be cheaper and much less stressful to simply stay at a five star hotel.

Then I discovered off-road/overland trailers. With go-anywhere clearance, rugged design, camp and cooking provisions, and enough room to haul dead animals out of the woods, these trailers are ideal for the vagabond hunter. We have tested many of these models across the American West, Africa and New Zealand. Here are a few hunting trailers that stand above the rest.
