Why the TOPO2 is Different
We are thrilled to share our latest innovation with you, the TOPO2! But first, let’s address the obvious: this isn’t the first fiberglass off-road teardrop trailer on the market. So how is it different?
Fiberglass trailers have been built before, but not like this. Most others are using the composite as an outer layer or shell surrounding an internal skeleton made of wood, aluminum, or other composite materials. That internal skeleton is what provides other teardrops with their strength, but doesn’t help to reduce weight. We’ve changed the game with our unique PET core.
Made from recycled milk cartons, this rigid core is built directly into the composite exterior walls & floor. It provides so much strength to our trailers that we were able to reduce the weight of our chassis by 300 lbs. And, since we no longer needed an internal support structure, we saved even more weight throughout the body. The TOPO2 is an incredibly capable off-road trailer weighing in under 1500 lbs.
But the innovation in the TOPO2 doesn’t stop there.
We brought the design & creation of key elements in-house to solve industry-plaguing issues.
What about leaks, you ask? We’ve got you covered. The TOPO2 introduces a water management system as you’ve never seen before. Our single-piece composite shell is entirely watertight and since there’s no structural wood, concerns over mold, mildew, and rot are eliminated. We designed molded rain gutters around the hatch & door edges, so the elements will be directed away from your trailer at all times. Dynamic proprietary hinges move the hatch above the gutter system when it’s open, which catches all run-off.
As for off-road capability, our Freeride Suspension System was designed to tackle any terrain. This fully independent suspension design yields 5” of travel on each wheel. With 16" Vision 355 Manx satin gray wheels, 265-75R16 General Tire Grabber ATX all-terrain tires, a 35-degree departure angle, and 23” of ground clearance, this thing is designed for the wild.
Then there's the interior.
The TOPO2 is ready to take on the most rugged terrain, but that doesn’t mean that we compromised interior functionality. Ever tried taking your shoes off in a teardrop trailer? It’s not fun. The TOPO2 introduces a heated mudroom at each entry door. A strategically designed 4” utility space gives you a perch for your feet as you pull off dirty shoes. There’s also an enclosed storage nook so you don’t have to worry about dirt making its way between the sheets. We’ve even included two coat hooks at each entry, so you’re not wasting precious cabinet space with a wet rain jacket or bulky puffy coat.
Inside the cabin, you’ll find a true queen-sized 6” memory foam mattress. Lay back and stare at the night sky through our 2.5’ x 5’ stargazer window. With nearly 8 cubic feet of cabinet space and 5 cubic feet of space behind the headboard, you’ll have plenty of space for your clothes, bedding, and additional gear. We carried over the beautiful baltic birch cabinet faces from our original TOPO Series to provide a rich & relaxing interior finish.
Then there’s the power system. A 100 amp hour VPR 4EVER lithium battery powers the 12V system throughout the trailer. Strategically placed LED lighting in the cabin & galley, ground lights beneath each entry door, and reading lights above each nightstand (yes, there’s a nightstand) will keep your nights illuminated. Access to USB ports in both the galley & the cabin will keep your devices charged.
You’ll also find a Truma Combi nested inside the trailer providing forced air throughout the cabin. Airflow is directed strategically across the stargazer window & side doors which creates a warm air pocket further insulating the cabin & reducing condensation on the double-pane windows. The Truma Combi not only heats the cabin air but also provides instant hot water to our stunning fully-integrated Ruvati sink measuring 22” W x 16” L x 8” D. Unlike other sinks, this one is actually large enough to do dishes in & easily fill a pot for cooking.
Speaking of cooking… The galley of the TOPO2 will make your kitchen jealous. A stunning Ruvati sink (22” W x 8” D x 16” L), slide-out ENO 2-burner stove (8000 BTUs), space for the standard YETI 75 (or an upgrade to an ARB 63), 7.5 cubic feet of cabinet space, a hidden knife storage cabinet, spice drawer, and modular shelving that allows you to customize your space to suit your needs.
The water tank gives you a usable capacity of 21-gallons of water. It’s nested inside the insulated trailer reducing concerns over freezing temps. Combined with a unique water cut-off, the water system can be used year-round. We also made it easier to refill your tank when you’re out in the wild using a water fill port on the side of the trailer that doesn’t require pressurized water.
The TOPO2 is the most intelligently designed 4-season camper on the market. Every trailer will include a system monitor by Simarine so you can get an easy read on your battery consumption, external air temperature, internal cabin temperature, and water levels.
