Frequently Asked Questions

What is the smallest tow vehicle that I can use to tow the Highland Expedition Outfitters T3 Overland Trailer?

The standard Highland Expedition Outfitters T3 Overland Trailer is very lightweight, tipping the scales at only 600 pounds empty with a GVWR of 2200 pounds. The Highland Expedition Outfitters T3 Overland Trailer can be towed with a vehicle tow rating of 2500 pounds.

What type of hitch do I need?

A class 3, 4 or 5 receiver will work if using a 2″ ball coupler. If using the standard Lock N Roll 3 axis off road coupler, the Highland Expedition Outfitters T3 Overland Trailers is equipped with the entire coupler and your tow vehicle must be equipped with at least a Class 3 receiver.

What is the construction material of your campers?

The frame and skeleton is constructed of 6063-T6 tubular aluminum that is completely Mig welded. The exterior is covered with ACM, aluminum composite material, which consists of 2 sheets of aluminum continuously bound to a polyethylene core. ACM is known for its flexibility, durability, strength and lightweight. The interior is clad in aluminum tread plate. This means that your Highland Expedition Outfitters T3 or the T4 Overland Trailer will never rust or rot. This also means you will be optimizing your fuel mileage while towing any Highland Expedition Outfitters Overland Trailer camper.

Why do you build your Overland Trailers out of aluminum?

When fabricated correctly, an aluminum trailer is extremely strong and lightweight. Building from aluminum gives you the best of both worlds, strength and light weight.

What kind of suspension is used on the Highland Expedition Outfitters T3 or the T3.5 Overland Trailers?

We use the Rockwell American Equalizer Torsion Axle as standard equipment on both models. This is a 3500 pound axle de-rated to 2200 pounds, and has 3500 pound spindles. This proven design allows the suspension to react to the trail independently and there are far less parts to wear out and give you maximum ground clearance versus the leaf spring suspension. On the Highland Expedition Outfitters T3, you can also upgrade to the Timbren axle-less off road suspension. It allows for an incredibly smooth and quiet ride. A secondary spring acts as a re-bound spring. This means there is always tension on the suspension, eliminating rattles and bounce. It also offers a true independent suspension and creates plenty of ground clearance for the trails. The Timbren axle-less suspension was the winner of the 2011 SEMA Best New Off Road Product of the Year.

Can I put larger tires and wheels on my Highland Expedition Outfitters T3 Overland Trailer?

Yes, but we will be required to put wider fenders and a longer tongue jack on the trailer at an additional cost.

What type of trailer plug do I need to hook up to a Highland Expedition Outfitters T3 or T3.5 Overland Trailer?

Can I get trailer brakes on the Highland Expedition Outfitters T3 or T3.5 Overland Trailer?

This option will have a breakaway switch, round 7 blade electrical connector, and must be ordered prior to the build. Your tow vehicle must be equipped with a compatible round 7 blade electrical connector.

Do you offer a rear hitch receiver on the T Series Trailers?

Due to the light tongue weight, we do not offer rear hitch receivers for safety reasons.

Do you offer a warranty on the Overland Trailers?

Yes, we offer a 1- year limited warranty. This limited warranty covers any defects in material or workmanship under normal use during the warranty period. This limited warranty does not cover any problem caused by conditions, malfunctions, or damage not resulting from defects in material or workmanship.
