THIS TAXA MANTIS TRAILER IS THE ULTIMATE ADVENTURE CAMPER

 Get Wild With The Mantis Trailer

Last week we covered a great little teardrop trailer, and it got us looking into the different versions of what I like to call ‘ the cars best friend’ that are out currently out there on the market. We found ourselves wishing for an off-grid trailer that looked great but could cope with some serious (and we mean serious) adventuring . Then we found the Mantis, and all of our prayers were answered.

Here it is, the Mantis Adventure Camper from TAXA Outdoors. With its cool steel exterior, Praying Mantis logo and distinctive orange pop top it certainly looks like the adventure camper that we’ve been dreaming of.

The Mantis Trailer is ultra-lightweight (it weighs under 2,300 pounds, which means it won’t guzzle your petrol) and measures 18-feet-long! TAXA also say that there’s enough room to comfortably sleep four adults (or three and one dog if the picture above is anything to go by!)Mantis Trailer - Outside 2

First impressions are that theres definitely plenty of room to live comfortably in it without feeling cramped. It’s might not be as homely as the teardrop we covered, but inside it packs a punch with its space saving ideas.

What’s Inside

Mantis Trailer - Inside

Well we’ve already mentioned the pop top, which means that you can stand up and move around without having to pretend you’re Gollum. For me thats a must in any van or trailer!

There is also a queen-sized bed for two adults, which can be converted to a couch, as well as two adult-sized bunk beds at the trailer front. Other nifty features include integrated plumbing and electrical system, a wet bath, fully-equipped kitchen, plenty of storage space, as well as a Thule cargo deck and rack on the roof.

Mantis Trailer - Wet Room

Just past our lovely assistant there is the wet room. Now I think this is pretty cool and a great use of storage. You’ve got your toilet and shower area in a box that comes up to waist height, with a flip down lid that probably turns into an extra ten beds or eighteen chairs. The Mantis Trailer really does makes the most of every inch of space.

Final Thoughts…

It’s clean, it’s as rugged as Tom Sellick’s moustache, and its as light as a trailer sized feather. All in all an awesome bit of kit. I found one online for just over £24k, which considering how much space you have and the amenities include inside is pretty good value.

What’s more, with all that space you can crack out your best Yoga moves. Now if I can just figure out how to remove my leg from around my neck I can work on the Praying Mantis pose….

Transparent Bubble Tent Lets You Sleep Underneath The Stars

If you thought the glass igloo hotel in Finland was cool, then you’ll love this unique tent. The wizards at Holleyweb have invented an inflatable, PVC, transparent, bubble tent that lets you live outside, but with all the comforts of home. All you need is 2000 USD or appox £790 pounds + nearly as much again for shipping, the tent, and somewhere to plug in the tent’s blower, which is necessary to keep the tent inflated.
