Steve & Deb's Hiker Trailer 5X8 Deluxe

Hiker trailer

I hoped for better, as our car usually gets 29+mpg highway. At least visitors are still allowed to climb up to the 2nd level in its head, where you can peek out of its nostrils. We never drained the battery when just charging gadgets, but we did run the battery dry one night by using the space heater. We had a lot of very specific request and they did a great job accommodating those for us. Our fuel economy for the drive home ended up being a touch over 18mpg. For the most part, it did surprisingly well on forest roads and some light off-roading. Up until last year we had a 4x8 Deluxe non-Off-Road model.

I like the look of the white trailer with silver diamond trim. I will more than likely not be full-time though, but who knows. Our other problem was related to the electrical hookup to the car. All it does is add light, but it also means if you want privacy, you need another curtain. I made overcoming those challenges part of my happiness.

About Us

Hiker trailer

If the winds were high earlier in our trip, they got truly gnarly on this segment. I love the little plaques and historical markers along what remains of Route 66. We had a site directly across the road from the bathrooms, which was super nice. I just added an 11lb propane cylinder, which I mounted to the rear passenger side, and will prob drop tongue weight by a tiny amount from when I last weighed it. We ate lunch here, and stopped at the gift shop for souvenirs.

We placed our order a few weeks after we got home with the rental, and had to wait a few months for it. At least it was 1hr each day of driving, so we spread it out. We could afford to sleep in a little bit more this time, because it was a fairly short day from Holbrook to Cottonwood we had campsite reservations at Dead Horse Ranch State Park. The adapter allowed me to do that, but by the time it was time to leave for Sedona, the adapter was dead. Its compact size makes it easy to maneuver in the woods, highways and bumpy roads. The weather is the typical mountain summer weather that I know and love, mornings are mostly clear and warm quickly, but then clouds build in the afternoon and scattered thunderstorms roll through and temps cool down.

About Us

Hiker trailer

At my age, I like my comfort! I, like many of you, dream about owning a tricked-out Sprinter or Tacoma and living on the road. The drive home, we squeezed into 2 looooong days one night on the road instead of 2. I suspect they were quite a distance away. To commemorate the stop, I bought my wife some earrings made from fragments of the nickle-iron meteorite ejected during the impact and found miles from the crater, as well as pieces of turquoise. It was unpleasant to breathe in the car and I was beginning to wonder if it would be irksome while we tried to sleep whenever we did stop.

Tested: Hiker Trailer, the World’s Most Affordable Teardrop Trailer

Hiker trailer

The square roof lends itself to our needs more than a true teardrop. Pretty sure I hit a microburst. You have a great thing going on with your build and I am seeing so many people making positive comments on theirs too. The workstand was nice, too. I had a Subaru Outback and now a Toyota 4Runner, and don't want to go larger than that. For the most part, it did surprisingly well on forest roads and some light off-roading.

Wanting to get it done to travel the Trans American Trail later this summer or at least part of it this year. I also added some empty containers down there to prevent stuff from sliding around. For the Off-Road Adventurer The aptly named Hiker Trailer company has one goal: create serious, affordable, travel trailers. You can get thicker or thinner. We ended up booking a rental for the weekend of the 2016 Brown County Epic mtb festival. The Alto R Series by Safari Condo aims to remedy that problem.

Six Month Review: Living in a Hiker Trailer

Hiker trailer

The terrain you see in this park is eroded down into a pretty flat plain, so the wind absolutely howls. I have not taken my Hiker to a weigh station yet, though I keep meaning to. We ended up boondocking at a truckstop for the night. He also had a supply issue with 2000lb trailer axles, so he installed a 3500lb axle on mine. I have to say, Rob and his crew in Denver nailed it on the build.
