AOR Odyssey Is a Compact and Tough Trailer Camper That Invites You to Take It Off-Road

I recently stumbled upon Australian Off Road (AOR), a company offering a wide variety of trailer campers. I have already covered the Matrix PT, one of their medium size hybrid campers, but today I want to tackle a vehicle that's a bit more compact and simple, the Odyssey.

AOR has decided to cater to the off-road enthusiasts of Australia by delivering qualitative and innovative products to its customers. The local workforce they have employed has been a major driver for their mission.

With extensive manufacturing experience since 2000, the AOR team has continuously tested and refined its products to offer a premium off-road experience. Moreover, according to them, their vehicles retain the highest resell value in the industry, so you might even get a good part of the investment back if you decide to move on to another product or brand.

The Odyssey is the smallest hybrid camper they have on offer. With a total length of 5.4 meters (about 18 feet) and a width of 1,95 m (6.4 feet), its snug build will sleep two people, so it's perfect for couples or solo travelers. Its 1,400kg (3,086 lbs.) tare weight allows it to be towed using a medium-sized SUV.

Its body is built out of fiberglass and sits on a Supagal high tensile steel connected to an independent twin trailing arm suspension that can carry a payload of 560 kg (1234 lbs.). A notable detail the camper boasts is a 30-degree exit angle. All these details combined make it ideal for off-road use.

The AOR team made this design without having to sacrifice comfort. But before we discuss its interior, I'd like to mention some key features of its exterior.

First of all, the Odyssey invites you to spend more time outdoors. There's a slide-out kitchen/ pantry featuring a three-burner stove and a decently sized sink. It also comes with a standard detachable metal shelf that can be installed on the side of the trailer. What's more, the 75-liter (20-gallon) fridge is accessible from both inside and outside the camper. Towards the back, you can install a convenient lift-up shower pod and connect it to the hot/cold shower taps.

The Odyssey comes with two LPG canisters, two jerry cans, and a spare tire, all attached in front of the RV. You can also discover a large tunnel boot with plenty of storage space.

As you enter, you'll notice the main control panel on your left and the kitchen on the right, featuring a similar setup to the one outside. All the lights in this mobile home are individually controlled.

A nice feature is a pop-top roof, and it also has some parts that can be zipped open. The lounge area is not that spectacular; it consists of two small sofas facing each other, under which you can find the electrical and hot water systems.

The sleeping area features a queen bed, or you can opt for the optional twin beds. What's creative in the design is that the bed can be popped up to reveal a generous storage space underneath. Unfortunately, if you need to use the bathroom, you'll have to go into the wild or use the included portapotty.

Let's get a bit technical! The Odyssey comes with a 200 Ah lithium battery and a 1000 W inverter connected to two 150 W solar panels on the roof. You also get 140 liters (27 gallons) of water storage and a gas hot water system. Last but not least, you also get a small fan attached to an inner wall. It might not seem like much, but personally, this is a nice bonus I'd definitely appreciate and constantly use.

All in all, I wouldn't call this trailer camper luxurious, but it provides all the basic necessities. Of course, by this point, you might wonder what this will cost you. The base price is A$106,000 (around $72,000), to which you can add a bunch of extra options such as a kids bunk, more external storage, twin spare wheels, and many others. You can find the list on AOR's website, alongside some other minor details I haven't mentioned.
