Beaver Built Trailers: 4 Reasons to Get an Adventure Trailer

Photo by Vill Van Der Merwe #geoscoutadventures

Camping is all about having fun, right? When I was a kid, that meant having the bare essentials – a tent, a sleeping bag and sleeping pad, and some firewood. Okay, okay, we took more stuff, but it really was a minimalist camping experience

Now that I’m older and have a kiddo of my own, I have zero interest in roughing it that hard. After all, one of the keys to having a good camping trip is being comfortable and having a few amenities to achieve that end.

In my book, there’s no better way to have a good time camping than having a well-designed trailer that offers some of those creature comforts to make your trip all the better. And for that, Beaver Built trailers fit the bill!

I’ve spent the last few months getting to know the Beaver Built team, and their passion for camping, overlanding, and off-roading is contagious. That passion shows in their trailers, which are some of the best-built and most-respected rigs on the market.

That being the case, I want to highlight just a few reasons why an adventure trailer like the ones from Beaver Built is just what the doctor ordered for a fun, comfortable, and relaxing time off-grid.

Let’s get to it!

Why Off-Grid Adventures are so Fun

If you ask me, off-grid adventures are the best type of adventures. You get to head into the unknown with people you enjoy spending time with the most. Since you’re off-grid, you won’t have to deal with noise at crowded campsites and will have the place to yourself to enjoy the beauty of nature in sweet silence!

Also, there is a sense of being self-sufficient, which can be very rewarding. 

Of course, this type of adventure requires much more preparation and gear than camping in a KOA.

For this exact reason, I suggest having a look at Beaver Built Trailers. Not only do these trailers have loads of standard and optional features, but their great customer reviews offer proof that these folks have a strong commitment to quality and customer service.

In other words, Beaver Built builds trailers you can depend on, which is the most important attribute of overland equipment. The proof is in the pudding, as they say, so let’s have a look at four reasons to invest in an adventure trailer from Beaver Built.

Beaver Built Trailers Have Excellent Off-Road Capabilities

The first reason why you should look long and hard at these trailers is the great off-road abilities they offer. 

For example, Beaver Built trailers come with the Cruisemaster CRS2 1.6-ton dual-shock suspension. This suspension is a single-arm design that reduces weight while providing a strong platform that supports the trailer through tough off-road terrain. The suspension also protects cables on the belly of the trailer from damage.

The suspension is just the start, though…

These trailers come standard with 15-inch wheels wrapped in 31-inch Yokohama rubber. These beefy tires provide the grip and puncture resistance you need for exploring difficult tracks in the backcountry, while the 10-inch electric drum brakes ensure proper stopping power. Beaver Built even offers wheel patterns that fit Toyota, Chevrolet, GMC, and Jeep trucks.

Tons of Standard Features

Another primary reason why you should consider a Beaver Built adventure trailer is the long list of specs and standard features.

For example, these trailers come with a high-strength galvanized steel frame that offers the durability required for off-road use. The aluminum body similarly provides strength and durability while also being lightweight.

Speaking of weight, the Beaver Built Wapos trailer tips the scales at just 1,050 pounds dry with a tongue weight of 150 pounds. Even fully loaded, the Wapos trailer is just 3,527 pounds.  In other words, you don’t need a big, bruiser, full-size truck to tow one of these trailers!

Other features include a matching full-size spare tire, over 43 cubic feet of storage, and a one-year warranty on the trailer (plus a 10-year warranty on the frame).

All this is in a trailer that’s 144 inches long and 79.75 inches wide – an ideal size for your off-grid adventures where difficult, narrow trails are the only ingress! In buying such a trailer, you get a great base for your ultimate adventure vehicle. 

Easy Customization With Bolt-On Options

But wait, there’s more!

Another reason why Beaver Built trailers are such a good option for off-grid travel is that you can select various bolt-on options to customize the trailer to your specific needs. Better still, these aren’t options you have to select from the get-go. Instead, you can add pieces here and there over the years to accommodate your changing needs.

For example, you can increase the storage capacity of the base trailer with a storage box, an extended roof rack, and side boxes. You can even add a rear drawer with dividers and a storage deck for more space.

For cooking, you can opt for a kitchen drawer pull-out and a kitchen management system. Nothing says “comfortable camping” like having a galley for preparing killer off-grid meals!

If that isn’t enough, you can further personalize your trailer by choosing from  the options below:

  • Front box with locking driver and passenger side doors with extended roof rack
  • Front box divider wall with shelf
  • D035 Coupling with integrated hand brake
  • Tongue deck 2” receiver
  • Spare tire carrier
  • Armor protection
  • Rear C Jacks
  • A custom-designed electrical system
  • 17” Vision wheels with 33” Yokohama X/AT 33” (set of 3)

Beaver Built trailers are already supremely capable adventure rigs right out of the box. But with a few added options and personal touches, you can make your trailer the bespoke adventure rig you’ve always wanted!

As I noted earlier, the Beaver Built folks have an intense passion for what they do and for overland adventuring. It’s infectious! Talking to these folks makes you want to hook up a trailer and head out on an adventure right then and there.
