Outbound Offroad carries some of the best, most rugged and well-reviewed off-road camper trailers and overland accessories on the market. We have trailers that cater to anyone looking to get out and explore this beautiful country. Our trailers are equipped to bring you and all of your camping gear and creature comforts virtually anywhere. Getting off-grid has never been so easy - or comfortable! Our trailers are also made to last, with absolutely NO WOOD in the construction. We are based in Raleigh, North Carolina and are proud dealers of Boreas Campers and Mission Overland camper trailers and the exclusive distributor of Terra Sheet mesh ground sheets.
We are adventure junkies. With a total of over 100 countries visited between us, we have never known anything other than a thirst for exploring, And our adventures almost always gravitate towards nature. We love the outdoors. We both met in Singapore (where Trish is from), where we were working as scuba instructors.
Our honeymoon was in Africa. We did a self-drive overland trip from Cape Town, South Africa to Nairobi, Kenya, and back to Cape Town. It was a 7-month, 20,000 mile magnificent disaster of a trip from beginning to end. We planned nothing, and paid the price in the form of a comedy of disasters the whole way, including – but definitely not limited to – getting stuck overnight in a desert full of cheetahs, our car overheating and needing 33 days to fix, courtesy of three different sets of mechanics, hitting a UN vehicle, and nearly being mugged three days into the trip. Just about everything that could go wrong, did.
But that trip was amazing in spite of, and even a little bit because of, everything that went wrong. That trip sparked our love for overland travel, and hit all the right notes in terms of natural beauty. From the endless grunting herds of wildebeests in Serengeti, to the magnificent, reclusive leopards in Zambia, the unstoppable force of Victoria Falls, to the towering beauty of Kilimanjaro, we were in awe the whole time. And even from our very much ramshackle overland setup, we came to love the overland lifestyle.
Fast forward seven years, and we found ourselves with our three young kids, ready and itching to hit the road again, right here in the USA. We bought an overland camper and set off on a spectacular trip, spanning 15 national parks all across the country.
We ended up in Phoenix, where we set up our own company selling and renting off-road trailers and camping products, including Boreas Campers. We lived there for two years, running our business and exploring the magnificent Southwest, until the opportunity arose to migrate ourselves and our business back to Raleigh. We have now settled in here, and are excited to raise our family here, and to serve the East Coast with some serious off-road camping trailers and products.
