On the wheels and off the road! This is the mantra for me and many other adventurers who like traveling. To suffice the requirement of an off-road trip, there are many camper manufacturers who have made a market for themselves. Sasquatch Expedition Campers is one start-up that is just flourishing on the scene.
The Colorado-based start-up makes rugged camper trailers for adventure lovers and travel maniacs. The company gradually rose to fame after releasing its first model, the Smuggler in 2021. A couple of years later, the cargo expedition trailer makers are back with a new model named ‘The Highland 60.’ Measuring two feet extra and weighing 400 lbs more than the company’s previous model, the Highland 60 is a hunky off-road camper trailer for those who want to explore boondocks.
16.3 feet in length, the Highland 60 is a rough beast that hedonist like me who is in constant search of love and adventure would like to tow around. It has got a rugged aluminum silhouette that kind of aggrandizes your personality and makes you feel like a badass on the road. Not to mention a flat roof that could be used to accommodate a rooftop tent to further increase extra sleeping space. Poised on an in-house suspension system called Bigfoot, the camper trailer is suitable for all kinds of terrains.
The best part about the off-road camper trailer is its clever design which allows a kitchen and a sleeping space (bedroom) to easily fit inside. Accessible from two sides, the camper features a queen-size memory foam mattress to help you stay relaxed. When you are tired of exploring the backcountry, the Propex 6500 BTU heater with digital controls and fully insulated walls, roof, and floor will keep you warm and offer you a cozy and comfortable sleep. There are ceiling and reading lights integrated into the interior which would be of great help if you want to read a book when not exploring nature.
The camper also incorporates a kitchen at the rear which is equipped with a three-stove burner, sink, and refrigerator. The kitchen also features an integrated shelf on the rear door with LED lighting and a 12v power supply for the fridge. The rear also includes a 36-gallon water tank with a self-priming pump and accumulator. Additionally, there is an on-demand water heater to suffice other basic needs.
Kass Kremer, co-founder of Sasquatch Expedition Campers told us,
We spent almost two years designing and testing our hand-crafted trailers deep in the heart of the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. Home of some of the highest peaks and rugged difficult terrain. I’m proud to say our products enable the ultimate camping experience, keeping you out of crowded RV parks and give you control to roam and make the backcountry your playground.
Offering ample storage (inside and outside), the camper also features an optional Squatch Box. It is a custom-designed storage box that fits under the roof rack and houses two solar panels and a custom fold-up table. There is also an exterior shower to cater to your hygienic needs. Despite its compact nature, it lets you experience the mores of life while not comprising on the comforts of an ‘all-season bedroom sanctuary.’
