Impressive Off Road Campers 2019 – 2020
Patriot X1-H Caravan
The newest offering from Patriot Campers is the X1-H, for that reason, it reaffirms why Australia is a world leader in the caravan industry.
Whereas most trailers of this style have a separate rooftop tent, this one has the tent stored away in the hardtop roof. It opens via a remote-controlled key fob in under 60 seconds while creating a sleeping area for two people. The top of the roof has a 140-watt solar panel providing power for two 135-amp hour batteries. A 270-degree batwing style awning can also be attached as well. Therefore, between this and the tent awning, the trailer has protection from the elements almost all the way around.
The trailer itself provides an L-shaped kitchen taking up one whole side. Included is a slide-out refrigerator tray with an attached sink along with a fold-down countertop and dual-burner stove. The rest of the trailer is all about the storage having 70 cubic feet total.
The structure of the Patriot Caravan has an all-aluminum body mounted on a galvanized steel chassis. All told it measures just over 11 feet long, 6 feet wide, and just over 5 1/2 feet tall with a dry weight of 2,070 pounds. It can handle another 1,400 pounds of cargo so feel free to pack Aunt Edna somewhere in there as well.
