Now, the Kestrel came off as an amazing trailer as its base price was only $8,500 (€7,241 at current exchange rates). The Pika, on the other hand, comes in at nearly double that with a price tag of $14,500 (€12,351 at current exchange rates). Why? Simple. Because it’s nearly twice as loaded and ready for your outdoor activities.
The Pika takes its name from a rabbit-like animal that lives and breeds in the Rocky Mountains. Nimble, quick, and a master of its terrain, you’ll soon understand why this name was chosen for the trailer.
aluminum sides and a minimum weight of just 1,025 lbs (464 kg) and you’re set to pull the Pika along behind almost any vehicle. 2,000-lb (907-kg) torsion axle, 15-inch aluminum wheels, rounded aluminum fenders and a 2-inch (5.08-centimeter) ball coupler complete the key build features.
Now here’s the deal. One thing Timberleaf seems to offer their clients is the option of taking any trailer they have and upgrading to off-road capable standings. You’ve already met the standard Pika, but how about the All-Road version. For an extra $1,900 (€1,618 at current exchange rates) you can upgrade your trailer with a 3,500-lb (1,587-kg) axle-less and independent suspension, electric drum brakes, polished aluminum wheels, diamond plate fenders, and a Max-Coupler articulating hitch, not to mention AT tires.
important areas protected. All that’s going to cost you just $2,500 (€2,129 at current exchange rates).
Inside the Pika, a 54-inch-wide (137-centimeter) living space offers room for two guests, while headboards, sliding bypass, full-length cabinet overhead, and massive skylight overhead are also standard. LED reading lamps, 4-speed fan, and mattress are just about all you’ll find inside. Oh, Timberleaf also understands the importance of storage, so a few options throughout the trailer exist and/or can be extended.
Like most teardrop campers or trailers, the Pika, too, includes its kitchen outside and at the rear of the structure. Here, Timberleaf has included a build that allows you to complete your trailer with everything you need to feed yourself while living off-grid. Countless storage and spaces for utensils and gear such as a stovetop, fridge, or portable sink, are all there by default. Even LP holders can be mounted to the exterior.
Off-Road package, powder-coated fenders, standard mattress, galley, and ventilation features, my Pika was starting to catch shape.
As I went on, I decided I want a roof rack, awning, portable shower, solar prep, and locking tongue storage. Propane tanks and a couple of other small knick-knacks later, and I had an off-road-ready vehicle for just $19,710 (€16,790 at current exchange rates).
Honestly, it’s not every day that you run across an off-road capable teardrop trailer for the sort of cash. If things continue like this, we can expect great things from Timberleaf.
