Rugged Comfort: TO Extreme Rugged 'N Ready

Rugged Comfort: TO Extreme Rugged 'N Ready

"... just because it doesn't break the bank, don't think it is spartan."

We have used several off-road trailers over the years and have had few complaints except for cost. Since when did a simple metal box on a heavy frame rival the price of a full RV with interior furnishings, kitchen, bath, and slide outs? Enter TO Extreme Rugged 'N Ready.

Offered in two basic models (the 60-inch High Country and 72-inch Backwoods), this all-steel, powder-coated, and E-Z Lined trailer is designed to be rugged and heavy duty, but without the frills and subsequent cost. At a base price of $4,490 (60-inch, no lid), owners can customize it to their hearts' desire.

Add a rack for a tent, put on a front box, and add wiring for lights and fridge. With a base price at half to a third of the competition, you will have a lot of coin left over for modifications and personalization.

But just because it doesn't break the bank, don't think it is spartan. The base model features heavy-duty 3,500-pound Timbren axle-less suspension, disc brakes, powder-coated steel sidewalls, adjustable tie-down points, forward cargo rack, premium off-road tires, rear receiver, locking tailgate, LED lights, an automotive grade harness, and a pintle hitch.


With generous interior dimensions (72x51x 23.5 inches), the Backwoods can also serve double-duty as a utility trailer hauling full sheets of plywood or sheetrock or even some modest-sized ATVs or motorcycles, making it an all around trailer for camp, work, or fun.

Rhino Awning

The Rhino Sunseeker awning sets up in less than a minute, weighs less than 25 pounds, and after three years of use the ripstop poly cotton canvas material is as good as new. Also, it can be modified with a four-sided screened-in room or solid privacy room plus a tent zipped to the outside.

James Baroud Tent

The Discovery rooftop automatically pops up in seconds and closes in less than a minute. The mesh sides and back provide incredible views, and the five-year guaranteed aluminized canvas withstood 70-mph winds and kept us bone dry during days of driving rain. Combined with the solar-powered ventilation system, integrated foam mattress, and rechargeable LED lights, you have a turnkey camp anywhere you stop.

ARB Fridge

Drawing as little as .87 amps per hour and designed to maintain below-freezing temperatures in 90-degree heat, this fridge ran constantly off one Cabela's deep cycle battery for a week in moderate fall weather. In hot weather expect two days off a battery, but with vehicle power, solar, or generator, it will run indefinitely. Constructed of zinc steel and covered in tough polymer, this unit features easy-to-adjust digital temperature settings and has internal LED illumination. Available in 35-, 50-, 63-, and 82-quart models.

Lund Tongue Box

Crafted from heavy-gauge aluminum then powder coated with a sealed, double-latching lockable lid, the Lund Trailer Tongue Box is a necessity for items that need to be grabbed quickly, plus it securely housed our battery, charging station, and power inverter in a dust and waterproof environment.

Rotopax Storage Box

Rotopax made their bones crafting indestructible fuel and water containers with a unique attachment system. Since many users already had Rotopax attachment points installed on their trailer, why not make a storage box? Utilizing the same attachment point this box hinges at the bottom, and sports dual latches at the top. We used one for tools, the other for cooking utensils. It measures 17.75x13.25x3 inches.

Camp Chef Water Heater

Just 'cause you are roughin' it, doesn't mean you have to smell like it. The Camp Chef Triton water heater instantly puts out 1.5 gallons of hot water per minute and runs 11 continual hours off a standard LP tank. An automatic ignition and two easy-to-adjust dials eliminate any excuses for not showering.
