First, What is an Off Road Camper?


An off-road camper is a recreational vehicle specially made to withstand challenging terrain and weather conditions. Its chassis and exoskeleton are super tough and can withstand substantial impact, absorb rough vibrations, resist corrosion, and protect the interior from dust and water. 


Usually, these extreme campers come with superior suspensions, high ground clearance, and rugged tires, enabling them to glide over obstacles. Despite being super sturdy, they are made with high-quality lightweight materials to enable easy towing. 


Many off road RVs also have self-sustaining features, such as solar panels, large-capacity batteries, sizeable water tanks, and efficient climate control. Of course, they have regular RV amenities like a kitchen, sleeping areas, couches, a dinette, and even a bathroom and shower in some models.


Finally, off-road campers take many forms and shapes, from boxy trailers, teardrop units, pop-up pull-behinds, 4×4 camper vans to truck campers and huge expedition rigs.


Here’s a list of the best off road campers available in the US:
