Exploring unconventional trails for a relaxing weekend in the wild is still very popular. Australian Off Road (AOR) has served the camping crowd for more than 20 years in its home country, and now the Queensland-based manufacturer is reaching out to the US market with two overland micro-trailers.
Sierra and Sierra ZR are now available via XGRiD Campers in Las Vegas, representing the smallest AOR model. Of the pair, the ZR is the smallest of the small but still includes 52 gallons of fresh water, an available 300Ah lithium battery pack, a shower, and a plethora of adjustable shelves for the side kitchen. It doesn’t contain a bed inside, but is set up for a roof tent which can be added at the time of purchase, or later if the buyer wishes. Perhaps more importantly, it weighs less than 2,000 pounds and is designed for serious off-road use with a 40.7-degree angle of departure.
Despite being slightly larger, the Sierra is even more capable on rugged terrain with a 41-degree departure angle. It checks in at over 2,000 pounds dry, partly due to the standard double bed in the trailer. It also has a side kitchen, though you’ll find a built-in sink and counter in the center of the adjustable sliding shelf.
Like the ZR, 52 gallons of fresh water are standard and a 300Ah battery is available. For additional sleeping space, Sierra can use a tent on the roof and there is also an outdoor shower. The Redarc RedVision power management system is included in both trailers.
Prices for the Sierra and Sierra ZR may vary depending on optional equipment. XGRiD currently has the Sierra starting at $42,500, with the Sierra ZR selling for $31,500. Models bigger than AOR expected to arrive in 2023.
