Overkill T.K.4.7 off-road camping trailer rides small but opens up for big, breezy views
Growing its lineup from the expanding S.O.5.10 caravan, Oregon’s Overkill Campers presents a lighter, simpler take on tow-anywhere camping. The T.K.4.7 rides on a similarly rugged foundation as its big brother but offers a more compact living space that blurs the boundary between inside and outside. With two of four sides taken up almost entirely by wide-opening doors, the trailer lets campers connect with the great outdoors in a way most other small trailers do not.
Last year, it was the 5.10’s slide-out expansion module and unique wraparound kitchen layout that lured us into Overkill’s Overland Expo booth, and this year it was the T.K.4.7’s wide-open doors. With a large, swinging tailgate door at the back and a flip-up wall on the passenger side, the 4.7 offers a more open, airy experience than virtually any small trailer we’ve seen, reminding us a bit of the Cricket TigerMoth. Inside, the 4.7’s pop-out bed frame panel turns the 78 x 46-in (198 x 117-cm) double bed into a seat so campers can enjoy those open-air views while sitting up or lying down.
We formed Bend Camper Rental following a brainstorming session over coffee in Bend, Oregon. We realized that prospective RV customers could benefit from having an opportunity to realistically preview a camper van, truck topper, or camp trailer for uniqueness before purchasing their chosen outfit. With that in mind, we set out to create a company that provided a rare camping opportunity for potential buyers. We soon arrived at the idea of offering outdoor opportunities for everyone who wanted to spend quality time in nature without the usual limitations of traditional recreation vehicles.
