What Is a Boreas Camper?
A Boreas camper tackles off-roading like a champ. It’s a compact camper that can fit in a one-stall garage. Thanks to the fiberglass, steel, and aluminum construction, these campers are both lightweight and strong.
The Boreas has off-grid capabilities and comes with all-terrain tires. It may be small, but it packs in features and comforts. From solar capabilities to full outdoor kitchens, this camper can handle much more than one might think.
How Much Do Boreas Campers Cost?
The cost of a Boreas camper varies depending on add-ons and features. You can find models for sale from about $19,000 to $35,000. The Boreas website lists dealers they partner with where you can purchase your camper.

The Boreas AT has a dry weight of 2,200 pounds. This 16-foot, entry-level camper trailer comes pre-wired with a Zamp portable solar plug. It can also use shore power.
Inside, you’ll find a 57 x 79 x 45-inch sleeping space with a memory foam queen mattress. The camper contains cabinets for storage and a Maxxair 6200 roof vent to keep the space temperature controlled.

Benefits of Off-Road Trailers
Off-road trailers give you flexibility and freedom when you’re out exploring. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of these trailers.
A lightweight trailer, like the Boreas camper, can get you farther off the beaten path. They typically do better in sand, mud, and other tough terrains.
Can Be Taken Anywhere
An off-road trailer can travel where low clearance vehicles and regular tires can’t. Whether you’re heading into the mountains or boondocking in the backcountry, an off-road trailer can take you virtually anywhere you want to go.
Off-road trailers, like the Boreas, tend to be low maintenance. They have fewer bells and whistles than other trailers or RVs. However, where they lack amenities that may require frequent maintenance, they make up for it with features such as solar panels and tires fit for rugged terrain.
Little to No Prep Time
Due to the size and efficiency of an off-road trailer, there’s little to no prep time to get it ready for a trip. Pack what you need, hitch it up, and go! That gives you vastly more flexibility when the mood for adventure strikes.
Is a Boreas Camper Right for You?
If you’re looking for an off-road adventure or simply for a lightweight, compact trailer, a Boreas camper might be for you. Finding the right RV to fit your needs and lifestyle is essential. Have you ever traveled in a Boreas camper?
