RVing and Motorcycling, part 4: ‘Low profile, off-the-ground camper’


+OpenRoad_siteField_DaleCoynerTime Out Trailers of Elkhart, Ind., has been producing ultra-light tent campers for 40 years.

While under tow, the camper presents a small profile with the trailer’s box measuring 65-inches long, 43-inches wide, and a height of 31-inches. When set up at camp, the length expands to 104 inches to create a spacious camper for two people.

The Time Out Deluxe model includes a queen-size bed, 40-square feet of sitting area with a table, and 23-cubic feet of interior cargo space. “Spectators are amazed to see so much come out of such a small space.”

Being an off-the-ground camper is important, especially if the weather turns sour. “When you step up and out of the weather into a dry, roomy Time Out,” says motorcyclist and author Dale Coyner, owner of Open Road Outfitters, “it feels like you’ve entered a motel room, not a camper.”

If more space is desired, you can attach an optional screen room or awning. Other extras, such as a spare tire or cooler package, are available for additional costs.
