With summer nearly here and the urge to get out of town setting in, many are tackling the task of finding the best pull-along trailer! Thankfully, many current manufacturers out there know that those who love the outdoors are on the hunt for gear that doesn’t break the bank. Canadian off-road camper manufacturer Off Grid Trailers has one very sweet new product you must check out! It’s a small lightweight unit that can provide power to a much bigger machine.
The Sprocket Off-Road Camper Trailer
The Sprocket joins the trail-ready ranks of the Expedition 2.0, Pando 2.0 teardrop, and Switchback, and the Motor Trend review crew fully-backed it after checking it out. The Sprocket’s modular composure acts as the core of your adventure basecamp. Fulfilling a very practical need in the industry today, it allows you to add the accessories you want at your own pace. One thing is going to keep motorists wildly in love with this product: Simplicity.
Sleeping bag and grill situation is ready from the get-go:
Many trailer models that are best-sellers are missing out on one key quality. They become more complicated with each new release, and the Sprocket does just the opposite! It is constructed on the existing Expedition chassis and fully fits the bill for a modular and lightweight tow-along. The standard features are smartly whittled down to just the essentials, but it is poised and ready for extras.
The Sprocket boasts integrated mounting points for frame-mounted accessories. Another very cool feature is the pre-threaded exterior bolt holes for side-mounted add-ons as well. You can get creative with extras such as the kitchen sink itself, or a handy dual-burner stove. The aftermarket enthusiasts who are crazy about brands such as Jeep will find a huge win here! The Sprocket comes equipped with a standard half-height front box.
Overland-bound and ecstatic:
Some of the standard features on this wilderness wonder are all you need to hit up the wild. It comes with Timbren 3500 HD axle-less suspension. There are also black aluminum wheels on 265/70R17 BF Goodrich K02 all-terrain tires. The entry door is a durable lockable dust-watertight type, along with a sweep-out threshold. The Sprocket also comes with a dual USB outlet, interior LED lights, and a 1,000-watt inverter.
The mosquito-heavy nights will be weathered comfortably along with a four-speed MaxxFan Plus fan. The Sprocket is made completely of metal, with no traces of wood construction. Aluminum elements are in place such as the subfloor and outside skin. The tube wall frame, painted white inside skin, and removable two-piece fenders are aluminum as well. There is also a one-piece wrap-around roof, an expertly built foundation for durability.
Starry-night sensation: room to sprawl out
Some people love to camp under the stars, but it’s great to have the option to sleep under shelter. The “glamping” trend has seen so many roll up to state parks and wilderness alike with rigs that provide the mini comforts of home. Large TVs, extravagant kitchens, and very comfortable showers are no doubt excellent amenities to have. The sprockets sleeping confines do offer up room for an optional queen-size 4 or 6-inch mattress.
Even a smaller-size cabin like this provides a respite of shade, and great protection from inclement weather. There is also an ingenious pass-through storage area, which connects the cabin to the rear through four swinging cabinet doors. You can also access the cabin through the upward-swinging hatch once outside. The upgraded OGT Evolution Series Suspension is one excellent aftermarket addition, adding an additional 8 inches of height for challenging terrain.
The never-ending story: extras for every scenario in the Sprocket
There are so many available sweet items for the Sprocket to have arrive at your door before you depart for the weekend! Diamond plate fenders and running boards are both their own form of signature touch. You can also score anti-skid black powder coating, roof racks, and the ever-handy spare tire. There’s also the choice of Dometic or Truma fridge, assuring you never run out of chilled beverages fit for the journey.
Roto Pax water containers are rotationally molded, and excellent for storage of portable liquids for journeys way beyond just a few mile markers. Any spontaneous outdoor jam will be livened up to the fullest courtesy of Bluetooth stereo with marine speakers, and there are many propane tanks to choose from. The juice is that much more eco-friendly courtesy of a 180-watt portable solar panel. Getting the most out of some perfect nights is best done with a rooftop tent, and the inside is that much more practical after adding drop-down interior shelving.
The quaint conqueror tough terrain dreams are made of:
2.25-inch Dirt Logic shocks are another upgrade for the Sprocket you can splurge on just in time for summer! They were developed with Fabtech’s many years of desert racing experience, and offer up the best damping for tough conditions. The OGT Evolution Series Suspension is built expertly with .250” wall tubing and is heat treated for maximal bend resistance. This gives you a much smoother ride as well as a longer lifespan for the trailer.
While you’re enjoying the ride on somewhat of a budget, you’ll realize why D.I.Y. enthusiasts are so passionate about excellent equipment like this. It’s also R10 insulated, making the excursions on the chillier side of things that much more livable. For anyone that started a side hustle during the pandemic and can now take things on the road, the Sprocket would be ideal. Even though it’s a bit on the minimal side, it truly has what you need and then some to hit the road prepared.
