In honor of fall road trips and perfect sending temps, we're highlighting a few of our athletes' adventure rigs this month. So if you're looking for a little inspiration to take your Rocktober road trip vehicle up a notch, read on and check back throughout the month.
Outdoor Research ambassador Jason Nelson's utility trailer takes the concept of "utility" to the next level—it's basically a tiny house on wheels. And, because it looks just like any other utility trailer, it flies under the radar. He had us with the double hammock setup and the sodastream. Check out his 360-style video. Here are his specs.
