Tiny Trailer: Boreas AT

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

Built with steel, aluminum and high-tech composites, and no wood, the entry-level Boreas AT is a rock-solid off-grid camping trailer

Boreas uses Timbren axle-less independent suspensions under all of its Boreas Series trailers. The combination of 32-inch BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain T/A tires and the Timbren suspension provide 20 inches of ground clearance.

Colorado is a hotbed of tiny trailer manufacturers focusing on off-grid/off-road adventure campers, and Boreas (formerly Into the Wild Overland) is one of the premier builders. The company offers two fully equipped models, the Boreas XT and Boreas MXT, the latter of which is designed to carry a motorcycle or up to five bicycles.

The new entry-level model is the Boreas AT. “Don’t call it a base model,” says Boreas’ Matt Reichel. “It just not full-featured like our other models.” The AT comes equipped with a full 12-volt DC/120-volt AC electrical system, 125 amp-hour battery and Timbren independent suspension, and it’s built with Boreas’ Zero Wood construction process.

The Boreas AT is designed for towing behind smaller vehicles such as Jeeps, midsize pickups, SUVs and crossovers with tow ratings greater than 3,500 pounds. It’s ideal for one or two people who enjoy getting away from it all for a few days.

Living Area

Like its stablemates, the Boreas AT’s fiberglass-composite cabin is built on a robust, powder-coated 2×3-inch tube chassis supported by an axle-less Timbren independent suspension, giving it more than 20 inches of ground clearance. The sleeping area inside the 60-inch-wide, 108-inch-long and 48-inch-high insulated cabin consists of a 4.5-inch memory-foam queen-size mattress, oversize compressed PVC cabinetry and fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) composite paneling.

The dimmable LED lighting wrapping around the ceiling complements a nice array of 12-volt DC and 120-volt AC plug-ins mounted in the cabinet face. The translucent 10-speed Maxxair 6200 roof vent and the windows in the doors provide excellent ventilation inside the cozy living space.

A queen-size memory-foam mattress provides a restful night’s sleep. The built-in compacted PVC cabinetry offers a decent amount of storage, while the 1.5-inch-thick insulated walls and composite paneling help keep the elements at bay.

Entry into the AT is via two side doors. LED ceiling lighting and a 10-speed roof vent fan are standard, as are 12-volt DC, 120-volt AC and USB outlets mounted in the face of the overhead cabinets. The camper is wired for battery and shorepower.

Kitchen & Storage

Where the difference in features shows up between the entry-level AT and the full-featured MX models is at the rear of the camper where the exterior galley is located. The AT is prewired to accommodate a 12-volt DC fridge, and it has the upper PVC cabinetry installed. But how the rest of the bare rear space is equipped is up to the end user. It can be a storage space for gear and equipment, or buyers can install their own cooking setup. There are also a number of upgrade options for the galley area.

The Boreas AT doesn’t come equipped with a ready-to-use rear galley, as do its higher-priced MX siblings. It has the built-in cabinet and is prewired for a 12-volt DC portable fridge. How the rest of the space is utilized is left up to the buyer.

Special Features

The 1,850-pound (dry) Boreas AT, which lists for $18,900, is built to handle the rigors of off-highway use and the needs overlanding brings with it, from the aluminum roof rack and ARB side awning to load-bearing fenders and Lock N’ Roll hitch coupler. The trailer is prewired for solar power, too.

The company guarantees the Boreas AT will never suffer from rot or mold, or from degradation of wood materials because there are none.
