Explorer Box AL

Coming Soon:

The “AL” version of our Explorer Box, takes our popular DIY Compact Trailer to the next level. An easy to assemble, complete kit with a pre-fabricated aluminum trailer box. The versatile nature of the kit makes it easy to configure and tailor to your needs as a Gear Hauler or Tent Top Camper.

We’ve  designed the AL with the same focus on expanding your available space thereby making smaller vehicles a practical option for wherever away from home adventures takes you. It will have a front cooler deck area and we have a nice two place tongue mounted bike rack in the works.

What’s new will be a Backcountry option for AWD and 4WD explorers whose adventures regularly take them off-pavement, on those roads less traveled. It will include key items such as upgraded suspension, 3 axis high rotation style coupler and larger tires.

Here is our prototype configured as a Tent Topped Camper with one of our lightweight Frontrunner rooftop style tent units.

  1. Oh sure after I get my wood one done you come out with a better idea. Looks good if my wood unit fails I’ll be looking at one of these more closely. Have to see if the weight and size would work with the motorcycle.

    1. Just so you don’t feel too bad – the initial AL’s would be on the heavy side for a motorcycle. But if there is enough interest from the motorcycle crowd; I’d definitely look into building a micro sized Explorer Box AL specifically for motorcycles.

      From the looks of how well you built your trailer you wouldn’t be in the market for one of these any time soon. :o)
