Many would-be camper buyers often feel left out by the display models at local dealerships. Some campers are just too big, and the ones that are in their price range might not have all the features (like enough cargo capacity) that they’re looking for. Still other buyers may be interested in a more durable and rugged camping trailer that can withstand a bit of off-road travel.
One company has found a solution that you might be interested in if you’re more of an “off the beaten path” type camper.
Jumping Jack Trailers Combine Rugged Haul Capacity and Comfortable Shelter
Jumping Jack Trailers makes a few different models of cargo campers, with the main difference between them being size. With their Original Series, you can choose from a 6′ x 8′, 6′ x 10′, or a much larger 6′ x 17′ frame.
The smaller models remind me of bumper-pulled motorcycle campers like those by Roadman, Kompact Kamp, and Bunkhouse.
The Original Series trailers have a robust, powder coated frame with 1/8″ thick walls and tandem torsion bar axles, ensuring a smooth ride when loaded to the gills.
Included with your camper are heavy duty tie downs, recessed lighting, a full-size spare tire, outdoor step stool, and a water sealed wooden deck.
During transit, the Jumping Jack camper can carry ATVs, dirt bikes, and other heavy gear.
Once you reach your campsite, unload the gear and set up your tent.
Beach camping looks fun.
Or you could use it as a mobile hunting blind.
How to Set Up the Jumping Jack Trailer
The Jumping Jack Trailer website has lots of helpful videos that show new owners how to setup and operate their camper. This video describes the set up procedure, which the company says takes less than five minutes.

While you might think the Jumping Jack looks sneakily similar to a cargo trailer with a tent attached to it, you’d be surprised at the many features available.
We could see this trailer appealing to those who want to carry their motorized toys with them, but don’t want to spring for a full-fledged toy hauler that’s much bigger, more costly, and less off-road worthy.
IRV2 reports that until recently the Jumping Jack was only sold direct from the manufacturer, but will soon be available from dealers across the United States.
Jumping Jack’s national sales manager, Gregg Beaudette told IRV2,
There is nothing else like it on the market and the best part about it is it’s under $7,000 retail, making it affordable for most people.

Facebook lists their page as very responsive to messages, so that’s probably a good way to get in touch if you want to learn more about their trailers.
