You’ve seen the original version of the XVenture Trailer by Schutt Industries in the first season of Expedition Overland. It’s a stout off road trailer built to military specifications to handle years of heavy-duty use and abuse.
At Overland Expo we got a sneak peek at the latest evolution of the XVenture, which will be featured in the upcoming Season 2 of XO. This version of the trailer has several significant upgrades over the original, including:
Off Road Trailers (also known as Adventure Trailers or Overland / Expedition Trailers) have been around for decades. These trailers have been used to support worldwide expeditions, Saharan safaris, and thousands of weekend camping trips around the world.

How much storage do you need?
Face it, the main reason many of us start dreaming of an off-road trailer is to carry all of our great gear into the back country. It could be because our family has grown and we need the space in the truck (as is in the case in our family) or it could be that you're sick of packing up your vehicle every time you want to go wheeling.
Perhaps most importantly, many want to be able to spend an extended amount of time off the grid, and a well stocked trailer makes it much easier.
