Patriot Campers, one of Australia’s foremost builders of off-road trailers and overland conversion kits has finally made landfall in the U.S. with Oklahoma-based Exploration Outfitters as the sole distributor. So now you no longer have to gawk at videos on YouTube and envy those people hauling those rugged campers across the Outback. Well, the Outback may still be out of reach, but at least we have Moab.

Through Exploration Outfitters, you’ll be able to order the X1, winner of the Best Camper Trailer of the Year four years in a row, and the X2, a lightweight but durable pop-up tow rig. The X1 is built like an all-out miniature overlander with a fridge, grill and generator, and it even includes a slide-out kitchenette, complete with a broiler and a two-burner stove. The X2 is a little bit more pared down but comes with a top-mounted pop-up tent and collapsible awning.

We were already truly spoiled for choice in the U.S. when it comes to off-roading trailers, but now that Patriot Campers is more readily available, it makes decisions a little easier. It’s just a shame that we can only get the X1 and X2 and not the rest of PC’s camper trailer line, not to mention its Super Tourer conversion kits. But if that’s what you’re truly after, you still have plenty of options.

The X1 starts at $32,490 and the X2 starts at $20,990.

This Winnebago Isn’t Messing Around Either
