Is this the Ultimate Off-Road Experience? A brief overview of the Patriot Campers GEN2 X1


G’day, caravan enthusiasts! Today, we’re going to take a detailed look at the new Patriot Campers GEN2 X1, a meticulously crafted camper trailer that’s taking the Australian caravan industry by storm. This off-road beast is designed for adventurous families who crave experiences beyond traditional camping locations. So, buckle up and let’s dive into the nitty-gritty of this extraordinary camper trailer.

Mechanical Components:

The GEN2 X1 is a marvel of mechanical engineering. Its chassis is a hot-dipped galvanized steel variant, wider, more robust, and compact than ever before. The spare tire is conveniently located underneath, ensuring an uncompromised departure angle and off-road ability. This single variant chassis guarantees exceptional performance and durability for your outdoor adventures. The rear bar at the back of the trailer offers protection against rocks and debris, and two recovery points have been added for extra safety.

Electrical Components:

The GEN2 X1 is equipped with two 150 amp hour batteries and a 1500 watt inverter as standard. The Redarc Manager30 and Red Vision systems can handle fast charging through multiple inputs simultaneously. High voltage accessory shore power comes standard, previously exclusive to the GEN1 X3. USB outlets are strategically located in the kitchen, the rear of the trailer, and around the bed base. Four dimmable underbody camp scene lights, two awning lights, and interior lighting are all fully dimmable via the camper’s app.

Kitchen Appliances:

The GEN2 X1 features a spacious L-shaped kitchen, complete with a large portable fridge, a sleek stainless steel kitchen, a wet storage compartment, a cutlery drawer, and scratch-resistant stainless steel bench tops. The fridge compartment now accommodates a Dometic CFX3 75-liter fridge, offering almost 150% more fridge space and the ability to run a fridge and freezer simultaneously. The water filler location has been brought forward for easier access to the 150-liter water tank. Steaming hot water is delivered directly to the plumbed kitchen sink, making meal prep and clean up a breeze.

Exterior Features:

The exterior of the GEN2 X1 is as impressive as its interior. The body panels showcase foam core filled doors on all models, offering insulation, reduced condensation, sound dampening, and enhanced strength while still being incredibly lightweight. The central locking system offers enhanced security without the need for clunky padlocks. All downward opening doors feature a soft open and close design. The front end of the GEN2 X1 has been completely redesigned and now features a textured black impact-resistant exterior for added durability.

Interior Features:

The interior of the GEN2 X1 is designed for comfort and convenience. The main cabin extends into the change room area, offering privacy and extra indoor living space. The bed base now extends out for enhanced usability, simplifying the setup process. The tent step provides increased stability, particularly appreciated during late-night ventures. Once upstairs, you can revel in the plush comfort of the gel top pocket sprung Patriot mattress, ensuring a peaceful night’s sleep after a day filled with adventure.

Top 5 Best Features:

  • Cutting-edge Automation: The GEN2 X1 is engineered for exceptional ease of use, enabling virtually anyone to set it up independently and swiftly.
  • Spaciousness: The GEN2 X1 offers the spaciousness of a soft floor camper without the inconvenience of a soft bag.
