Colorado Teardrops expands its line of small travel trailers with the Summit, designed for extreme off-road camping. The rugged Summit has 35-inch BFGoodrich Radial T/A off-road tires, a full skid plate, nerf bars, corner stiffeners and a 3,200-pound torsion axle. The Summit is insulated for comfortable use in extreme weather, according to the company, and it’s engineered to support 1,500 pounds on the roof to carry bikes and other sporting goods.
The floorplan features bunk beds that convert into a couch, plus a 60×78- inch queen bed, all wrapped up inside an interior body length of 101⁄2 feet. Inside cabin height is 4 feet 8 inches. The compact, aerodynamic teardrop trailer weighs 1,800 pounds and is just under 7 feet high, so it can fit in most garages. Outside, tucked away in back, are bifolding doors that open to reveal storage and shelving that’s designed to be used as an outdoor kitchen (appliances not included). The doors are strong enough to support coolers, there’s room for stowing food, and a sliding shelf can hold a campstove. Base price is $21,100.
