The Opus OP15′ Is a Tricked-Out, Off-Road-Ready Travel Trailer

OP 15' Hybrid Caravan

Until recently, most off-road travel trailers prioritized function over comfort. Today’s best adventure towables, however, promise all the amenities of a modern, studio apartment atop a go-anywhere chassis. This year, British newcomer Opus is seriously upping its game with a unique hybrid caravan designed for off-grid camping in style.

New for 2019, the OP15’ Hybrid Caravan is designed for “tough luxury.” From the outside, the trailer’s off-road prowess is evident, thanks to mud-rated tires, twin rear-mounted spares, a fully galvanized chassis, powder-coated wheel arches, and a built-in utility area with jerrycan holders. Along with a ruggedized suspension and jacked-up ground clearance, it’s a perfectly capable, go-anywhere towable.

The OP15’s rugged exterior belies a fully loaded, arguably “luxurious” interior with all the comforts of home. The spacious living quarters feature a king-size bed and a full bathroom with a premium shower, chemical toilet, and sink. Standard exterior kitchen amenities include a four-burner gas range, stainless steel sink, and slide-out chopping board and prep deck. Plus, the massive Dometic CFX75 electric fridge/freezer combo can accommodate days’ worth of food for even the hungriest campers. The list of technological conveniences includes a four-speaker entertainment system, 12V television, and ample USB and 110V sockets throughout. With a 63-gallon freshwater capacity, three AGM batteries, and a 300-watt integrated solar system, the OP15’ is ready for an extended period of off-grid camping. Premium materials like leatherette seating and bamboo cabinetry elevate the design above most typical off-road trailers. 

Opus first made a splash in the travel trailer industry in 2016 with the debut of Air Opus — a package available as an add-on to its existing models. The revolutionary option features a pop-up-style design with a built-in inflatable tent that sets up in less than two minutes. Once unfurled, Air Opus-enabled trailers offer more than 120 square feet of living space with eight-foot ceilings and skylights that flood the interior with natural light.

Not surprisingly, the swanky, off-road travel trailer doesn’t come cheap. With a base price just under AUD $50,000 (approximately USD $34,400) — a price that quickly balloons with road costs and other essential options — the OP15’ is no entry-level towable. 

If money is truly no object, these ultra-luxurious overland RVs are like off-road-ready mansions on wheels.

Mammoth Overland’s ultra-rugged TL travel trailer has an insane amount of space
Over-specced, overbuilt, and spacious enough to sleep a family of four comfortably with room to spare.

Teardrop trailers have certainly come a long way in the last century, and especially in the last decade. The best off-road-ready models boast ultra-rugged designs built to tackle almost any terrain. The downside, however, is that their compact size means you'll need to sacrifice interior living space, and sometimes, that's just not a concession you're willing to make. Enter Mammoth Overland's all-new TL overland trailer, a beast of a travel trailer that's Apocalypse-ready and roomy enough to sleep four adults.

On the outside, the TL overland trailer feels like a curious hybrid of a teardrop trailer and a compact yet rugged travel trailer. It is indeed both, and yet neither. Stepping inside, it's easy to understand the TL (or "Tall Boy") moniker. The tall interior provides 6'3" of headroom and is plenty roomy for even your tallest friends to stand up comfortably. The floor plan is equally spacious, with room for a king-sized bed plus a modular couch that easily converts to a bed. Combined, there's room for four adults to sleep comfortably or a family of five with small-ish children. That is an absurd amount of living space for a relatively compact trailer.
