Each year, we generate a list of the best off-road teardrops money can buy. Our lists in 2021, 2022, and 2023 had some excellent choices, and this year’s list is no different!

It takes a lot to design and build a trailer that can withstand the rigors of off-road travel. Yet, the companies listed below have perfected the process. As you’ll see, this year’s crop of the best off-road teardrop trailers includes options with features and amenities that are unparalleled in the industry.

So, let’s stop with the chit-chat and dive right in!

Best Off-Road Teardrops of 2024: Cedar Ridge Campers Vega 2.0 XT

The first thing you look for in an off-road teardrop trailer is its off-road capabilities. The Vega 2.0 XT from Cedar Ridge Campers certainly delivers on this front…

This trailer rides on a 3,500-pound Timbren HD suspension with a two-inch lift, 21 inches of ground clearance, and a fully welded 2×3 tube steel frame. Cedar Ridge has added 12-inch electric brakes, 16-inch aluminum wheels, two-inch rock sliders, and BF Goodrich K02 265/75R16 tires for good measure, too.

But that’s not all! You get a full-size spare tire in case you damage one of the others, rear recovery points on each corner in case you need to be pulled out of the muck, and an ARK off-road tongue jack that makes maneuvering the trailer once you’ve uncoupled it a breeze. 

The CruiseMaster DO35 coupler with hand brake is a nice addition as well, ensuring a smooth trailering experience on and off the road. All the trailer’s wiring and hoses run inside the frame, too, which protects them from damage when off-roading.

Extreme off-road capabilities aren’t the only feature you want in an off-road teardrop, though. Having a comfortable place to crash is paramount, and the Vega 2.0 XT offers that in spades. 

The cabin features a faux wood look that makes it look and feel like a warm, cozy, inviting cabin in the woods. The four-inch memory foam queen-sized mattress is a nice place to crash after a long day of traveling. And you can do so without all your gear in your way – the large his-and-hers cabinets along the rear wall offer 10 cubic feet of storage, so you have a neat and tidy interior space. The headboard area also offers wireless charging for your devices. There’s even storage space under the mattress for more gear!

The cabin is also climate-controlled with a Maxxair fan (which has a rain cover and remote) to bring in fresh air and a Truma Combi furnace to keep you warm when the temperature gets chilly. Add an optional Zerobreeze air conditioner to keep you cool in the summer, and you’ve got an ideal setup for off-roading and camping year-round.

Better still, you can enjoy a comfortable interior experience while having a panoramic view through the two-by-three-foot Stargazer window. The custom Arctic Tern doors with built-in shades and screens add more natural light and offer a nice view on either side of the trailer.

So, this trailer gets you where you want to go and offers a nice space to rack out at night. It adds to its appeal with a full rear galley with everything you need to transport and store your food and related items and whip up incredible meals on the trail.

The stainless steel countertop provides all the flat surface you need for making your meals, while the two enclosed HDPE cupboards give you eight cubic feet of space to keep dishes, pots, pans, and other kitchen essentials organized and out of the way. The galley also features a slide-out Partner stove and a fully plumbed sink, a huge pantry drawer with divided space for canned and dry goods, and dimmable LED lighting to help you see what you’re doing as you make those late-night meals.

Cedar Ridge Campers has also ensured this trailer has a rock-solid electrical system. You get 10-volt plugs, USB ports, and 12-volt plugs in the galley and cabin, porch lights on both sides of the trailer, and LED under-trailer lighting.

Powering these accessories is a 105 amp-hour lithium battery paired with a Redarc 1500-watt pure sine wave inverter and a 100-watt Light Leaf solar panel. A Redarc Redvision with a Manager 30 battery management system makes keeping tabs on the system’s performance easy.

Other notable features of the Vega 2.0 XT include the following:

  • A 20-pound propane system
  • A 20-gallon insulated water tank (with a temperature monitor and a heating mat for cold-weather camping)
  • An integrated shower system
  • A 500-pound capacity roof rack

  • Heavy-duty stand-on steel fenders
  • A two-inch rear accessory receiver for a bike rack or cargo rack
  • Leveling jacks on each rear corner to stabilize the trailer at camp

All this is in a trailer that is about 1,800 pounds dry and is just 13 feet long. At 85 inches side to side and 79 inches to the top of the roof rack, this trailer has a slim and low profile that makes towing it in tight areas all the easier.

Best Off-Road Teardrops of 2024: Kruger Bush Campers Springbok

kruger bush springbok exterior

Getting off-road to find a great campsite doesn’t mean you have to rough it in a bare-bones trailer. In fact, these days, you can buy teardrop trailers that aren’t just highly capable off-roaders but also offer incredible luxuries like heating, air conditioning, and insulated water tanks.

Not every off-road teardrop comes loaded with amenities such as these – but the Springbok by Kruger Bush Campers sure does! This one-of-a-kind trailer inspired by African overlanding adventures is the poster child of off-road teardrop camping!

kruger bush springbok rear

Let’s start by talking about the technical features of this trailer…

The Springbok starts with a one-piece welded and fully hot-dipped galvanized chassis. The chassis is lightweight and incredibly strong, so it can take a beating from rough off-road trails. It is also durable, thanks to a 3mm thick layer of tar paint that virtually eliminates worries of rust.

Kruger Bush Camper Logo

As the Kruger Bush Campers folks explain in this detailed video, the chassis rides on a heavy-duty two-inch independent suspension with dual shock absorbers to make the rough off-road ride a much smoother towing experience. The 265/75R16 tires offer good grip on slippery surfaces, while the aluminum alloy rims are purpose-built for off-road travel. Kruger Bush Campers also includes electric brakes and a hand brake to ensure the trailer is controlled on the trail and stays put when you get to camp.

kruger bush springbok awning

On top of this robust chassis and suspension is an aluminum alloy body. It’s not just any body, though—it’s a two-layer panel system in which insulation is sandwiched between two aluminum panels.

Again, this system is lightweight, strong, and durable, and also helps create an interior environment that’s protected from large temperature swings outside.

kruger bush springbok galley

So, the Springbok is one heck of a rugged off-road trailer. But, as I mentioned earlier, it boasts all sorts of features that you don’t find in every teardrop.

For example, the trailer’s fully-featured stainless steel kitchen at the rear includes storage space, a sink with hot and cold water, two stoves, and a slide-out. You even get a 78-liter fridge! The trailer has an insulated onboard plastic fresh water tank, too, so you can camp in cold weather with less worry about your water freezing up.

Other goodies include the following:

  • Outdoor washroom with privacy room
  • 30-amp DC charger
  • 2000-watt inverter
  • Two 100ah deep cycle batteries
  • Diesel heater with up to 5kw of power
  • Air conditioning

But what about the interior of the Springbok?

kruger bush springbok interior 1

Head inside to find a well-appointed cabin featuring bench seating at the front, a U-shaped dinette with a floor-mounted adjustable table at the back with cupboards for storage. You’ll appreciate the entertainment system, too!

The best part of this trailer’s interior is the pop-top one-piece aluminum roof plate and PVC waterproof tent. Not only does this feature give you more headroom inside the trailer, but it also allows for two beds. The top bed measures nearly 6.75 feet in length and is more than 3.75 feet wide. The bottom bed (which is created by the sofa area) is even larger at 6.8 feet long and almost 5 feet wide. There’s room for the whole family!

kruger bush sprinkbok tent up

All of this is encapsulated in a trailer that’s 16 feet long, 7 feet wide, and about 7.5 feet tall as you travel down the trail. Then, once you’re at camp and pop the roof up, the height of the trailer extends to nearly 10.5 feet.

With over 300 cubic feet of interior space, the Springbok is about as roomy a trailer you’ll find that can handle difficult off-road trails. Backed by a U.S.-based company (located in Savannah, Georgia), this trailer offers everything you need to have fun off-road adventures. 

With lots of space, plenty of features, and a second-to-none build quality, it’s easy to see why this trailer ranks so highly on our shortlist of the best off-road teardrops of 2024!

Best Off-Road Teardrops of 2024: Kimberley Kampers Kube

kimberley kampers kube 1

The whole point of an off-road teardrop trailer is to have something that’s durable, functional, and capable. Why not add some luxury to that with a Kimberley Kampers Kube?!

But before we discuss the luxurious amenities in this camper, let’s get to the nitty-gritty of its off-road capabilities…

The Kube boasts one of the most advanced suspension systems on the market. Built upon Kimberley’s renowned Outback proven independent trailing arm suspension, refined over three decades, it seamlessly integrates airbags and electric over hydraulic disc brakes. This combination ensures stability at highway speeds while offering unparalleled smoothness over rugged terrain, making you forget you’re towing anything at all.

kimberley kampers kube 2

Imagine effortlessly adjusting the trailer’s travel height via remote control for optimal towing stability and leveling at your campsite. Equipped with electronic vented disc brakes delivering twice the stopping power of drum brakes at 1200 psi, the Kube ensures safety even when traversing rivers without fear of brake fade. The suspension system is further enhanced with two-inch mono-tube, emulsion off-road racing shocks, providing a luxuriously smooth ride even on the most uneven trails.

kimberley kampers kube 3

The construction of this trailer is a definite selling point, too.

Crafted WITHOUT wood to prevent rot, the Kube features a one-piece fiberglass body atop a hot-dipped galvanized steel chassis, complemented by marine-grade stainless steel and high-grade alloys. Utilizing 3D computer-aided design since 2005 ensures precision in construction, guaranteeing resilience in any situation.

kimberley kampers kube 4

Inside is a real treat – a spacious cabin with a king bed surrounded by huge panoramic windows. The panoramic view is just what the doctor ordered when you’re camping. Wake up in the morning to a full view of the beauty around you, and get energized for a day of exploration after a good night’s sleep on the king-size bed. Yep, I said king-size! What could be better?!

kimberley kampers kube 5

The bed isn’t the only comfort-related item in this camper, though. The interior of the camper is lined with an automotive headliner-type material to reduce outside noise and condensation. There’s a Merlin Space Solar panel on the roof with the ability to plug in an additional 540 watts of portable solar panels.  The large (up to 600 Ahrs) Bluetooth-enabled lithium batteries can be charged from your vehicle via a 50 Amp DC-DC, solar, shore power, or a generator. Other high-tech features include the following:

  • Diesel-powered hot water and heating system
  • Dual water tanks (up to 50 gallons) with a single filler, marine pumps, and Jerry cans for extra water storage (you can also add a visi-flow water system and pump water from any source)
  • 85-liter fridge with freezer
  • Zip-on outside ensuite shower

kimberley kampers kube 6

The Kube is also outfitted with a huge outdoor slide-out kitchen with a stainless sink, various two-burner, Weber, or BBQ options, and a 40-watt Bluetooth sound system for entertainment while you cook. Add a 4G + GPS aerial to boost your internet signal and get the advantage of auto tracking and theft alert software while you’re at it, too! It also is Starlink-ready.

On top of all that, the Kube is easy to set up. If you need to make a roadside stop, use the camper as-is without the need to open it completely up – you still get full access to the kitchen, catering space, and fridge. Alternatively, when you get to camp, you can deploy the awning in about three minutes and have a full camp setup in no time.

kimberley kampers kube 7

In other words, Kimberley Kampers has built a teardrop trailer that ticks all the boxes. It’s lightweight, easy to tow, and impeccably designed. The build quality is second to none, the use of space is top-notch, and the innovative features in this camper make it a functional and comfortable option for your adventures.

I’m not surprised this trailer is so impressive, though. I met the Kimberley team a couple of years ago at Overland West, and while this teardrop hadn’t been developed yet, the hybrid camper they had on hand was one of the most impressive rigs there. Telling you about the quality of their work and showing you pictures of it just doesn’t do it justice. If you want a rock star of an off-road teardrop, Kimberley Kampers certainly obliges with the Kube!
