Xplore X22 & XR22 Off Road and Off Grid Trailer- Everything you need to know

Xplore X22 & XR22 Off Road and Off Grid Trailer- Everything you need to know.


Whether you are looking into purchasing an Xplore X22 or XR22, or maybe you already own one, this post will cover all the fundamentals of the trailer.


The Frame

The frame is extremely unique. If you look at any travel trailer, you will notice the body actually extends past the frame about 12 inches. The walls are not secured by the frame, but by gussets attached to the frame. This design greatly increases the risk of body damage, especially in an off-road scenario, and increases stress on the body over time. With the perimeter off road frame that Imperial Outdoors builds the Xplore on, the body of the trailer does not extend past the frame, but is built right on top of it. Just like a house is built right on the foundation, not a foot past it! Truly, Xplore’s construction helps you put your mind at ease.

Fiberglass

The Xplore is not built with your run of the mill fiberglass like you will see on most travel trailers. It is constructed with Crane Noble hung fiberglass! Let me tell you what that means. Most of the fiberglass on trailers is about the thickness of a credit card, and is actually a plastic infused fiberglass. On the other hand, The Crane Noble fiberglass used for the Xplore trailers is about 3x thicker. The only thing we’ve seen with this quality of fiberglass is a million dollar RV coach!

Another cool thing about these off road Xplore units is how they do the coloring. The green color of the Xplore X22 & XR22 is not painted on, but is actually mixed into the fiberglass. These campers’ pain will never peel or fade. Even if you scratch the fiberglass you can just buff it out and make it look brand new again!

Here’s a quick video that goes more in depth on the fiberglass:


Insulation

Insulation is a big deal. You want to be able to hold in your heat or AC, otherwise you will end up heating or cooling the entire world and let me tell you, that’s not cheap. You may hear that this trailer or that camper is a 4 seasons trailer, but at ROA OFF-ROAD we have seen every travel trailer, fifth wheel, and motor home out there. We can honestly say that nothing comes close to the insulation and extreme weather capabilities of the Xplore trailers.

The roof is 6.5″ thick and the walls are 3.5″ thick! Most trailers will have a 2″ thick roof and 1″ thick walls. That is a drastic difference! There is a reason that Imperial Outdoors is a master when it comes to insulation. They started out making fishing houses for ice fishermen in northern Wisconsin. Building a trailer that could withstand sub zero temps was not just a nice feature, it was an absolute must.

These off road campers have no water pipes or tanks are exposed below the frame. They are all tucked into a nice snug spot with plenty of insulation to keep them from the elements. The walls and ceiling also have a vapor barrier to act as a thermal breakage. This makes the Xplore extremely easy to keep warm in the winter, and cool in the summer.

For more awesome details on the insulation of the Xplore X22 & XR22, Shane from ROA OFF-ROAD discussed it thoroughly in the full X22 walkthrough video. Watch the whole thing and pay special attention from minutes 21-27 when he discusses insulation.
