In a transformative evolution of the traditional camping and outdoor exploration scene, ROC Trailers, based in Georgia, has taken the lead with the introduction of its latest innovation—the ALD09 trailer. Departing from the norm of conventional trailers, this eco-conscious company has not merely added another option to the market; it has introduced a groundbreaking shift towards eco-friendly, electric vehicle-compatible camping experiences.
The ALD09 trailer ditches the conventional aluminum-skinned wooden structures for an insulated fiberglass-composite design that exudes the luxurious appearance of a yacht. According to ROC, this material choice not only enhances strength and durability but also significantly reduces the trailer’s weight, leaving a lighter ecological footprint on outdoor excursions.
Crafted specifically for rugged off-road adventures, the ALD09 features a robust steel frame construction, all-terrain tires with 16-inch steel wheels, and a 2000lb axle-less independent suspension, providing an impressive 20-inch ground clearance. This durability ensures a seamless journey across diverse terrains without compromising stability or comfort.
The lighter construction, with a gross weight as low as 2,000 pounds (907 kg), offers remarkable flexibility in terms of towing vehicles. The interior follows a classic teardrop-style layout, boasting a queen-size mattress, LED lighting, and USB ports. For additional sleeping space, a shelf at the foot of the bed transforms into a sleeping platform, perfect for accommodating a child or a furry companion, expanding the sleeper capacity without relying on a rooftop tent—though that option is available for increased headroom and ventilation.
At the heart of the trailer lies the galley, featuring an efficient kitchen setup with drawers, cabinets, and an optional sink. To address the challenge of limited space, ROC strategically arranges equipment, including a tongue box with a fridge and a side table ideal for a portable stove, all integrated into a flat tailgate that can be flipped open for a satisfying culinary experience on the go.
For extended wilderness stays, the ALD09’s kitchen comes equipped with a 57-liter water tank. The trailer can be upgraded with a 100-watt solar panel and a 10A Voyager solar controller if needed. With a starting price of a modest $16,999 without add-ons, the ROC ALD09 emerges as a modern trailer with a keen sense of environmental responsibility, blending lightweight construction with a spacious interior for a contemporary camping experience.
