b'Valhalla on WheelsAdventure palacesthat rule the open roadBY BRYAN ROGALAThe Black Series HQ12 ($50,000, pictured) weighs 4,422 pounds, is 19 feet long, and may be the most capable adventure trailer on the planet. The all-terrain chops start with the suspension, which uses four shocks instead of two. Each wheel moves independently, smoothing out bumps, and a burly galva-nized-steel frame and diamond-plated rock guard add protection. Inside, a full kitchen, toilet, and shower connect to a 50-gallon freshwater tank, with an additional 16- gallon container for drinking water. A furnace and air conditioner, dual-pane windows, and insulation keep you comfortable, and theres space to sleep four. The electrical system runs on shore power or two 150-watt solar panels and a battery. Our favorite feature: the second kitchen, which slides out of an exterior compartment and has a three- burner stove, sink, and large prep table for cooking al fresco. Because one kitchen is for suckers. Looking for something a little simpler? The Hiker Trailer Extreme Off-Road Deluxe ($8,995 and up) can be stored in your garage and is light enough to be pulled by a Jeep Wrangler. But 25 inches of ground clearance, 33-inch tires, an aluminum exterior, and a rug-ged steel frame mean itll go anywhere your 4x4 can. Soft-ride leaf springs and shocks translate to a smooth ride. The Four Wheel Campers Hawk ($19,395 and up) is the best go-anywhere camper for full-size pickups. Its deceptively roomy, with 6.5 feet of standing room and a bed that sits over the truck cab. It sleeps three adults (or two adults and two kids) and has a full kitchen, 20-gallon freshwater tank, and 120-volt electrical system.Roofnest is known for high-quality, affordable car-top tents, and the Falcon ($3,395 and up) is our favorite yet. Its honey-comb aluminum construction is sturdier than fiberglass, and the clamshell design gives you more headroom than Roofnests other tents. At 6.5 inches tall when closed, it wont wreck your fuel economy. TRAVEL | OUTSIDE BUYERS GUIDE 202077SBG20_TRAVEL_Trailers_rlsd_457975.indd 77 3/31/20 5:42 PM'
