I am excited about a lot of things and usually when I do get excited, I will proceed to write a shit load of good stuff about it, but today, I found myself left speechless by the Bruder EXP-6 Expedition Camper Trailer. I am thrilled by a camper trailer. Imagine that. I am not going to lie; as I was writing this, I secretly wish I can have one even though the place that I reside has no room for such awesomeness. Ok. I admit. I am excited and sad at the same time.
But I was once told that you need not buy something to own it; all you have to look at it everyday (either in person or as images), its as good as owning it. It kind of makes sense for a luxury timepiece (which was the subject of to buy or not to buy argument) that cost tens of thousands. However, the Bruder EXP-6 here is different. If the Australian outfit, Bruder Expedition, delivers as promised, well, then I got to at least get on one, if not owning one.
Unlike Airstream which banks on classic usability, Bruder is all about sophistication sprinkled with the right amount of tech. It has electronically operated roof, tail and awning, and also, it is app connected, allowing the specially designed suspension (that offers a shocking 12 inches of wheel travel!) to be adjusted on the fly, regardless if you are stationery or on the move, with app on your smartphone. And the galley is beyond fabulous, affording access from both the exterior and the interior. Also, it has two fridges.
And oh, did we mentioned that the entire vehicle is built on an airtight chassis from German-made composite material? Yeah. It is. Plus, unlike most camper trailer, the body is separated from the chassis with high density rubber bushings that help to isolate the body from off-road vibrations. Damn, this is some crazy (in a good way, of course) camper trailer and of course, there are tons more of features but instead of me crafting a 10,000-word article, I shall leave it to the product video to tell it all. So, enjoy and also, try to contain your excitement.
