Tough and reliable with a touch of luxury, the Mountain Trail EDX is built for the adventurous at heart.

Mountain Trail Campers have sought to appease both traditional campers and luxury seeking travellers with its latest model, the EDX.


Imagine being able to watch your camper basically set itself up and pack down at the flick of a switch. Well, that’s exactly what the EDX does. It uses an advanced yet robust electric actuator system that’s had countless hours of R&D to ensure the result is finely tuned and absolutely effortless. The results are impressive, to say the least.  It’s easy to see that this design has been well-engineered and thought out. The system can run off its own twin 105Ah batteries, can be plugged directly into your vehicle’s battery setup or, if all else fails, be operated manually. So there’s very little chance of an electrical failure leaving you high and dry.

The EDX got all the usual bits and bobs you’d expect of a full offroad camper: Hitchmaster DO35 offroad hitch, 12in electric offroad brakes, and built-in recovery points, to name just a few. However, the strength of the EDX is owed to its heavy duty, hot-dipped galvanised chassis and a very strong drawbar, meaning the platform is as robust as they come. Its curves are purposely designed to keep any vulnerable components out of harm’s way and offers respectable ground clearance in the process. Plus, it’s pretty well streamlined with nothing to get snagged on at the rear.


The EDX has utilised every bit of space available including a massive storage drawer under the bed, a well thought out storage box on the drawbar, and a super practical and efficient kitchen storage and pantry setup.
