Jeep and Mopar go haulin'Tue, 20 Jul 2010 00:00:00 -0700
Jeep and Mopar are teaming up to create a line of rugged trailers to go anywhere and haul anything.
The Jeep Trail Edition campers will match the conventional Jeep in colors and ruggedness, including 32-inch tires, diamond plating and a tall enough suspension to navigate big ruts. The trailers will pop open to sleep four adults while offering 76 inches of headroom. They are also made to accommodate parts from a Jeep, including bumpers and spare tires. The cost of the aftermarket package is $9,995.
The Extreme Trail Edition campers will be even more hard-core, offering even bigger tires and full underbody skid plates. The Extreme Edition also includes a more robust hitch with a 360-degree rotating axis for maximum off-road maneuverability. The Extreme package costs $11,995 and will be available from Mopar dealers.
Both editions will feature a 110-volt power converter for cooking and heating, a pop-up table and cabinets for camping gear.
