It may seem like technology is winning – a 2018 study by Nielsen claims that American adults spend more than 11 hours a day looking at screens – but nature is also racking up some impressive stats. According to the 2018 North American Camping Report, more people are camping, with an increase in 2.6 million camper households in 2017 alone. “I think that there’s a little bit of a backlash right now when it comes to electronic devices,” says Dave Munsterman, a former off-road racer and founder of Phoenix-based Turtleback Trailers, which manufactures customizable off-road camping trailers – think: built-in grills and water pumps – for outdoor adventuring. Packing up a trailer to #optoutside “helps remind you of the importance of unplugging.”

Turtleback Trailers’ flagship trailer is also its most popular. It supports two to six people and is kitted out with a sink, stove and shower with hot and cold water.
