Have a hankering for the great outdoors? The urge to just head out on the open road, the number on the odometer ticking upward while you enjoy uninterrupted views en route to the destination of your choosing? We know the feeling. It is hard to resist when nature calls, so you pile into your off-road RV and head off to a campsite for a few days. Great, right? 

Well, sometimes. The reality is, taking your RV to a campsite isn’t always the best way you experience nature at a camp. Wouldn’t it be amazing to explore the wilderness in your camper without being tethered to a campsite? If this sounds more like the adventure you had in mind, you’re in the right place!

Camper Trailers and Campsites

For as long as the modern camper has existed, the idea was to park them at campsites or camper parks. Pack your family in the car and head off to spend a summer of fun in nature. However, the unfortunate reality is that these campsites rarely allow you to enjoy the great wide open in all its wonder.  

These campsites or parks, often packed to capacity, are noisy, busy, and a far cry from the quiet of nature. In addition, the camps provide very little space and require you to be reasonably close to your campsite neighbor. So, aside from the lack of space or privacy, you will have to deal with the noise too. And, if all that isn’t bad enough, staying in a park is expensive.

But why do we do it then? Why not just head out into nature? The answer to this is two-fold. First, most off-road RV need hooking up to power and a fresh water supply, amenities these camps provide. And second, most campers don’t offer the ability to travel on uneven surfaces, so you’re stuck to traveling only on tarred roads. 

Or are you? 

Until now, traveling with a camper trailer has been relatively limiting, which is why the travel trailers from Black Series are causing such hype in the world of RV travel.

Going Off-Road

Black Series pop-up campers and travel trailers use innovative engineering that makes it possible to travel off-road. An all-aluminum lightweight chassis combines with high-strength composite materials to leave you with a durable trailer that easily withstands grueling off-road terrain.

A Black Series trailer utilizes a unique suspension system. Unlike the typical two-shock systems found on most campers, these off-road trailers take things up a notch. A quad-shock suspension system evenly distributes the trailer’s weight across four points, offering a smoother ride and safer handling. 

Engineers designed unique trailing arms that operate independently, allowing each wheel to move independently, making tackling uneven off-road terrain an effortless task.

Each off-road RV sits higher off the ground than regular campers to allow easy movement over rocks, branches, and other obstacles. In addition, the bottom surface of Black Series trailers features an aluminum diamond plating for added strength and a stone guard that adds protection for the bottom edge of the camper. Eurovision windows with flyscreens and privacy shades make it easy to allow the cool air in without the bugs.

Living Off The Grid

Now you know you can take a popup camper or travel trailer from Black Series off-road; chances are you’re wondering about where the water or power comes from. 

Black Series believes that to enjoy a nature adventure fully, you should be able to live off the grid. It is for this reason that you will find these campers self-sufficient. Designed to provide long-distance endurance in the wild, each trailer comes with solar panels, an inverter, and a 48V fast charging off-grid system with a lithium battery.

If you’re worried about water, don’t be, each off-road RV comes fitted with a large water tank, plumbing, and a hot water system. You will find a separate tank for drinking water, fresh water, grey water, and black water, so you can go about your daily routines as though you were at home.

Black Series fits its camper trailers with an innovative Intelligent Control System. This unique feature allows the pertinent information of the RV such as gas, electricity, water, and other elements to be displayed in one place – on your mobile phone or a screen in the camper. Keeping this data at your fingertips makes it easier to monitor these elements in real-time.

The Luxury of Home Comforts

The interior of a Black Series off-road RV epitomizes luxury, combining the comfort of home with unique interior technology and an intelligent control system.

Black Series notes that just because you’re roughing in the wilderness doesn’t mean that you have to give up living comfortably or luxuriously. Each travel trailer features an elegant interior with a bedroom that offers a queen-size bed, a fold-out lounge, and a kitchenette and bathroom. 

The bathroom is fitted with a fiberglass shower that offers hot water and ventilation and a porcelain toilet. 

Elegant wood-vinyl flooring matches the exquisite timber veneer cabinetry found throughout the camper. The kitchen is a work of art and comes fitted with a stove, microwave, fridge, and sink.

To keep you in comfort no matter what the weather brings, you will also find a furnace and air-conditioning in the trailers.

The appliances found within the campers are of European design, providing you with premium quality to match the luxury the interior of these cabins exude. In addition, lighting is provided throughout the camper, with reading lights in the bedroom and lounge, along with wide-angle LED floodlights located on the trailer’s exterior.

BS: What is your #1 tip for off-road campers with who are setting out in your region? Anything they definitely will want to know but might not think of off the bat?

Parris: Always have a plan “B”. Campsites don’t always work out, so give yourself daylight hours to find an alternate campsite and get set up.
