Written by

We researched a lot of mini all-terrain campers and this is the one we have chosen. It’s a 2019 Escapade Backcountry: cabin w/galley are 5′ wide x 10′ long, 3,500 lb Timbren axle-less suspension, 17″ ground clearance, queen-size mattress in the cabin, and galley in the back. It’s built in Dassel, Minnesota and we make the 1,050 mile trip to pick it up. Let us know what you think!

  • We had a similar Runaway Range Runner and although small, it was one of the most comfortable campers we've owned (out of 8) as well as being the most reliable. It came with carpeting on the ceiling and we chose to include the option of carpeting the entire inside as well. It was one of the most worthwhile options we've experienced. It served to insulate as well as damp noise (inside and out). But the biggest advantage was the air it trapped which completely eliminated all condensation. We never had a drop anywhere inside. The axle less suspension was indeed an interesting concept ๐Ÿ™‚ I used to have a complete walk thru video of the Range Runner, but no longer. You can see how we outfit it in many of our videos especially the Georgia State parks Playlist ๐Ÿ™‚ The Range Runner was 8' long and 6' feet wide.

  • Very nice , Im so happy for you guys congrats . Let me ask , with so many choices in the market now days for this type of trailers , what was the deciding factor to choose this one ?

  • In the past i have also considered a small trailer but decided it would not get used to justify it. What are reason you both decide to use a trailer vs. RTT?
