Car & Driver: Prepare for the Apocalypse—or Anything Else—with These Rad Off-Road Campers


Recommended Posts

UEV-490 Extreme, camper, off-road


Between rising sea levels, the threat of Zika virus, and the recent news that a herd of 300-plus reindeer all were killed by one single lightning bolt, some of us here at Car and Driver (alright, just this writer) are convinced the end times are near. Now’s the time to begin preparing for our inevitable Mad Maxlike dystopian future. Fortunately, Ohio-based Conqueror North America, LLC, has us me covered, as the company begins to import three variants of South African–built, off-road-ready Conqueror camper trailers.


At the bottom end of the Conqueror food chain is the the UEV-390 Extreme. With an unladen weight of 1875 pounds, the UEV-390 includes equipment like a slide-out kitchen, a pop-up shower space, and, most important, a built-in minibar. A king-size bed is standard fare, and folding tent space can sleep additional bodies on the ground. Meanwhile, two water tanks hold approximately 40 gallons of H2O. Starting at $27,750, buyers can shell out additional coin for features like a portable toilet ($150), a folding solar panel ($485), and more.

Unless you’re the lone-wolf type, though, you’ll likely want to travel with a trailer that can more comfortably accommodate friends and/or family members. With a starting price of $38,750, the UEV-440 Extreme shown above comes equipped with two queen-size beds that fold out from the trailer body. Like the UEV-390, the UEV-440 comes equipped with a slide-out kitchen, pop-up shower space, and minibar; however, customers also can add features like a television ($400), television satellite antenna ($460), a pair of interior fans ($300), an A/C unit ($3800), and other amenities including the toilet and solar panel.



Finally, there’s the top-dog UEV-490 Extreme. Equipped with an independent rear suspension and an electro-galvanized steel body, the $42,650 UEV-490 is the ultimate trailer for surviving in a post-apocalyptic world. A built-in dinette converts into a double bed, while a separate double bed folds out from the front of the trailer. Like its siblings, the UEV-490 includes a well-equipped slide-out kitchen, pop-up shower space, and built-in minibar, as well as a handful of optional feature and amenity items.


Conqueror North America is currently taking pre-orders for all three trailers, and deliveries are expected to begin in the middle of September. Let’s hope the apocalypse can hold itself back another half-a-month.
