Blackcamp is a relatively new brand on the camper trailer market, but its roots run deep. It is a spin-off of Italian forestry equipment and trailer manufacturer Schwarz Anhänger, which was founded in 1947, and its trailers are both traditional and progressive.
This new folding camping trailer is priced from around $25,500 and is bound to appeal to budget-conscious adventurers who want a lighter-weight RV that is easy to tow behind many typical family vehicles, including some small cars. Built in South Tyrol, Italy, the FREEda camper is the manufacturer's smallest model yet, but it's a true Swiss army knife in the world of trailers, packing everything one needs for both on-a-whim weekend trips and extended holidays.
Moreover, it is built tough and ready to take on any adventure you throw its way, from relaxed family camping to energetic backcountry exploration. Due to its compact size when folded down, it allows for easy parking, storage, and travel. It can be towed through the narrowest canyons when exploring the outdoors and expands into a captivating, superbly equipped habitat once you are at your campsite.
The rugged and versatile FREEda camping trailer measures 11.2 feet (3.4 meters) in length and 5.41 feet (1.65 meters) in width. It sits on a double-axle trailer with AL-KO suspension and boasts a fiberglass, aluminum, and steel construction. Its insulated GRP panels ensure resilience and durability, while the high ground clearance, reliable braking system, and integrated LED lights enhance its capabilities.
It is built on a powder-coated welded frame and flaunts an elegant design that mixes style and practicality to allow customers to enjoy the comforts of home even in the wilderness.
For instance, the trailer's tailgate area fits up to four bikes, while a slide-out secures them in place and facilitates unloading.
Unlike other squaredrop-style camping trailers, the FREEda model has no inside-the-box living space. Instead, all the amenities are neatly packed in storage compartments, and Blackcamp decided to use the interior of the trailer as cargo space as well.
The kitchen, on the other hand, comes standard and slides out from behind the large passenger-side trailer door. It is fully functional with a wooden countertop, a sink, a dual-burner gas stove, and a large 63-L fridge. There is also a pull-out shelf for additional storage space, a pantry, and several generous drawers for storing kitchen utensils, cookware, dry food, and more.
A 60-liter tank holds the necessary fresh water, while waste water drains directly into a 20-liter tank.
On the other side of the trailer, the driver-side door hides additional cargo space. Onboard power comes from a 95-Ah gel battery when off the grid, while 220V and 12V sockets in the cargo area allow to leverage the grid again when returning to civilization.
The FREEda Mini Caravan is one of those camper trailers that entices you to not only travel the world but also deeply immerse in it and taste the joys of life. Imagine camping gracefully atop a lush mountain area, pulling out that cute little wooden kitchen, and putting together a delicious meal while listening to the birds sing, feeling the fresh breeze, and sipping a hot tea. It would sure taste like freedom!
