If one company stands above the others for combining style and sheer capability, it’s Vintage Overland. Owned by Britton Purser and his wife, Ami, it builds caravans by hand in Grand Junction, Colorado. The trailers come in two sizes, each weighing between 600 and 700 pounds. In the world of towable camping shelters, that’s featherlight. Not only can the Vintage Overland be pulled by virtually any Subaru, but its off-road-capable torsion axles and burly tires can make it as far into the wild as your vehicle can deliver you.
