Sustainably sourced timber and non-toxic materials make Homegrown Trailers’ new Timberline camper a beautiful and eco-conscious choice for those looking to hit the open road. Handcrafted with low-waste construction methods, the 23-foot-long Timberland is lighter than most trailers of its size at just 3,950 pounds, yet its flexible layout can sleep between three to six people. A photovoltaic system and water system take the rugged trailer off the grid for long trips and extreme weather uses.
Designed and built in the Pacific Northwest, the teardrop-shaped Timberland is aimed at a diverse market from full-time RVers to property owners looking for an extra guest room. Durable tongue-and-groove timber siding clads the exterior and is punctuated by large windows that allow for natural light and airflow. Energy efficiency is key in the design, achieved through airtight construction, wool insulation, an external graywater tank, and low-energy lights and appliances.
Despite its compact 140-square-foot interior, the Timberland manages to squeeze a large kitchen, indoor shower with a composting toilet, and a queen bed with a twin XL bed to sleep three in its base model (buyers can also purchase a dinette convertible or other layout options to sleep up to six people). Plenty of headroom with clearance ranging from six to nearly seven feet adds to the spacious feel. The off-grid base model comes with 600 to 800 watts of solar panels with 3.6-6.0 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery capacity and starts at $41,500, while the on-grid package starts at $37,000.
