About

MOAB Gobi X: Revolutionary Off-Road adventure trailer 

Bivouac Camping Trailers proudly announces the next great innovation in Off-Road trailers, known as Gobi X. Unlike its predecessor, the Gobi X is a universal overlanding trailer that provides an attractive and lightweight solution to the needs of less powerful vehicles.

Gobi X designers realized that the needs of today's adventure seekers were not being met. Overlanders today need a trailer, which can be pulled by any vehicle with a trailer-hitch. With more fuel economy conscious travelers we realized the need for a very lightweight yet durable, off-road capable trailer. Based on the proven and popular construction techniques of our MOAB line of trailers we created a simplified trailer, without sacrificing quality or durability.

Based on innovative engineering and design concepts, the Gobi X successfully addresses the problems faced by today's Overlanders in areas of mobility, convenience, comfort, ergonomics, durability, and aesthetics to deliver a superior trailer, unmatched by other competitive products. The first intelligent trailer, the Gobi X boasts a number of breakthrough features:

· Aluminum Framed Walls – Gobi X's walls are framed using aluminum extrusion, insulated with Styrofoam and finally laminated with interior and exterior fiberglass panels. This construction technique provides an extremely rigid and lightweight wall, which will not breakdown in rugged off-road use.

· Strength and Durability – Gobi X relies on a tubular steel, powder coated chassis to provide adventurers with the durability needed to travel over all road conditions allowing the user to experience the true outdoors beyond the usual confines of paved roads. 

· Comfort – Gobi X's interior size is designed to comfortably accommodate two adults while limiting the width to the actual track of the tow vehicle. This allows the Gobi X to “tag along” anywhere the tow vehicle is capable of traveling. 

· Spacious Interior – Its ceiling height is still tall enough for travelers to sit upright on the comfortable memory foam mattress and allows an interior compartment space and needed storage for clothing and electronics. 

· Power On-the-Go– Gobi X's Optional Electronic Package contains a 12-volt battery capable of charging smart phones and tablets while also powering the interior and exterior LED lights. 

· Manufacturability – Although the Gobi X's design is unique, the trailer was designed with simplicity and scalability in mind. Designed with a more basic galley to reduce weight and fine-tune manufacturing, the Gobi X can be produced in larger quantities than our other MOAB trailers therefore reducing overhead and manufacturing costs. The Gobi X is designed for a broader more mass-market appeal.

Bivouac Camping Trailers, LLC. co-owner Rick Russek said, "Kickstarter is the ideal platform to launch the Gobi X. This is a new product and a new way of bringing it to the world. By supporting the Gobi X on Kickstarter, people can be a part of the innovation process and directly affect the outcome of this launch."

Risks and challenges

The risk here is we have a product that yet innovative and one of a kind, is a niche market of overlanders and camper customers who are willing to tow this kind of trailer. Our target customer is segmented to these outdoors people who might be a small percentage of the trailer market yet the affordable price point along with extremely low weight and enclosed sleeper cabin are extremely appealing to those looking for a comfortable teardrop type adventure trailer.

We have created a new logo that we are very excited to reveal to the public and are not worried about the ability to deliver on rewards. If funded, our newly built trailer will be displayed at the Overland West Expo in Flagstaff, Arizona the weekend of May 18, 2019 and we are thrilled at the possibility of this! We have the manufacturing process down and have been producing trailers for the past 10 years. We already have an extremely successful line of MOAB Trailers being produced and tons of highly satisfied customers which you can hear all over the forums for small trailers and overlanding. To this point, we do not for see issues in manufacturing since a build of this type should only take about one month.
