Jeep And Addax Create Overlanding Trailer To Follow A Wrangler Wherever It Goes
Jeep and Addax today revealed a new trailer designed to go anywhere an overlanding enthusiast could hope to take it. Inspired by the U.S. military’s surveillance trailers, the Jeep-branded Edition is a compact trailer that’s perfect for adventurers.
“Together with the team at Addax, we are excited to announce the co-launch of the most cutting-edge overland trailer on the planet,” said Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “The Jeep-branded Edition by Addax can truly follow a Jeep Trail-Rated vehicle anywhere and demonstrates the Jeep brand’s commitment to empowering our community with the gold standard in overlanding performance. Thanks to the Jeep-branded Edition, adventurers can now enjoy the most beautiful and remote places on Earth even longer.”
Weighing in at just 850 lbs (386 kg) dry, the trailer is designed specifically to allow Jeep drivers to tow something that doesn’t hold them back. It has an independent torsion axle suspension that provides 17 inches of ground clearance.
The chassis is made of 3/16-inch military-grade steel, while the body is made of 14-gauge steel, which is bent, not welded, for ultimate durability and strength. It measures in at five by six feet (1.5-1.8 meters) and has a foldable tongue, making it ideal for owners with limited amounts of storage space.
The trailer itself offers 35 cubic feet (991 liters) of storage and also get 8,000-pound (3,629 kg) stabilizing corner jacks. It also comes with an articulating hitch and a rear-receiver hitch, as well as a heavy-duty custom rack with numerous mounting possibilities.
“We are proud to have earned the Jeep brand’s trust by creating a trailer that can conquer any terrain,” said Addax CEO Kirk Jowers. “We are excited to continue to engage with Jeep in engineering the most innovative and comprehensive line of overlanding products for the Jeep brand’s loyal community.”
