Off grid trailers are different from the conventional recreational vehicles. While with recreational vehicles, you can move around and come back home, deciding to use an off-grid trailer means cutting off bills, water, electricity and gas; and moving away to an empty land where the trailer is set up permanently.
As the name suggests, it means living off the grid, from the hustle and bustle of urbanisation and moving to somewhere which is surrounded by land and nature. This is not for the faint-hearted. Therefore, we have decided to bring you a few off-grid trailers that can practically go anywhere.
- Coach Trailers
These trailers are a good choice for an off grid vehicle. These trailers are not as wide as others, making it easy to navigate bumpy or forests with single lanes while traveling.
They come with fridges which can store food for up to a week, saving you the stress of going into town every three days to stock up on groceries.
Most of their parts are collapsible, so they can enter almost any size of garage. Another reason why a lot of people choose them is that they are built in such a way that they can make U- turns in cramped spaces.
- Camp Trailers.
These are quite portable and an excellent choice for a couple of people or a small family to live in. Rugged in build, camp trailers are usually made of steel; no matter how rough the terrain is, these trailers are up to the task. In fact, they can be used on mining and oil rigging sites. Yeah, they are that strong.
With stand-on fenders measuring between 11 to 12 gauge, tents which come with the trailers and are found atop the roof can be accessed for campers that prefer camping sleeping on top the trailers. Most equipment found in these trailers are arranged in ‘packages’ which can be kept away after use; ranging from the kitchen to electricity.
Their showers are compact, sleek and constructed in such a way that you wouldn’t have eyes prying at you while you have a bath.
- Expandable Trailers
As the name suggests, these trailers have parts that can be pulled out to make more room inside. They are usually light and this lightweight in addition to the size when there are no pull-outs, makes it possible for them to be towed by cars that are not too big. Another good news is that they are very affordable, unlike most recreational vehicles or trailers. Using one of these is very economical because most interior parts are built with both comfort and space in size, example, the inbuilt furnaces.
The truth is, though not everyone would want to live away from ‘civilization,’ living in off-grid trailers affords one freedom and a sense of serenity, which is something that comes with being surrounded by nature.
These three types of off-grid trailers can be used anywhere and make surviving off the grid an enjoyable experience.
