Outdoor enthusiasts, rejoice: these new TigerMoth trailers are just the compact, ultralight trailers you’ve been dreaming of.

These tiny adventure trailers are made by Taxa Outdoors, the same creative designers of the Cricket and WoollyBear campers. At only 12-feet long and 900 lbs, these trailers are light enough to be towed by most 4-cylinder vehicles. The TigerMoths are engineered for high vibrations so they can easily venture down dirt roads, bringing weekend warriors to their latest adventure.

They feature 12 inches of ground clearance, torsion axle, powder-coasted chassis, and 15-inch radial tires.

In addition to a standard rear door, the trailers have a large side hatch that allow easy access for loading and unloading, and great views of the outdoors.

The swing-up hatch door also doubles as a roof to sit under during inclement weather. The sides, doors and roof are all made from an aluminum composite, and have an R-value of 6.

The inside of the TigerMoth measures about 8 feet long by 5 feet 2 inches wide.

The interior storage is NASA-inspired, featuring attachment points, hooks and bungees that create space for wall and ceiling mounted cargo.

There are also several exterior storage options, including a roof rack system, roof cargo deck, and extra long tongue that can hold a toolbox or cargo loading step.

Additional storage is available under the bed.

Three tempered tinted windows with screens and shades allow plenty of light in during the day. Inside, 12-volt LED cabin lighting is also installed so you can still see after dark.

To ensure maximum space, there isn’t a dedicated interior kitchen.

Instead, there is a 5.5 sq. ft. counter top that extends from underneath the couch. This pull-out is designed to be an optional marine-grade birch wood kitchen area that includes a hand pump faucet, 4 gallon water tank, and storage for a stove and cooking tools. For those who opt out of a kitchen, the pull-out has 3 large cubbies that can be used for general storage.

The TigerMoths include USB charging ports, wireless Bluetooth speakers, and tongue/grove wood floors.

The trailers have a 120 volt inlet for shore power, but they also include a solar pre-wired system for those who want to stay off the grid. Additional features – like a fully enclosed shower tent, mesh screen doors, 5000 BTU driver-side window AC, and custom patio awning – are also available.

The 2017 TigerMoth Trek and TigerMoth Camp trailer models are now available to purchase. Taxa Outdoors lists MSRP at $12,900, but the final price will depend on dealers. For more info, take a look at Taxa Outdoors online here.
