Pioneer have just recently lifted the covers off their latest camper trailer, called the Mitchell.
It’s a hard-roofed, hard floored camper trailer, which looks farily similar to Track’s well renowned Tvan. Look closer though, and you’ll see that there is a big difference: The whole roof of the Mitchell is hinged, which is reported to give a big internal space when opened. We haven’t seen it open yet, as the press release is hot off the press.
The bed in the Mitchell is a queen-sized inner-spring job, and the front storage looks to be smartly combined into the design. The overall design is quite angular, which makes it look quite modern. It also comes with a shower as well, which is pretty flash!
2mm marine-grade aluminium make up the panelwork, along with insulated composite fibreglass panelling. A tare weight of 1,350 kilograms is a reasonable weight, which can be loaded up to a 2 tonne aggregrate trailer mass (ATM). Suspension is an independent trailing arm setup, from Grafta.
We’ve got the specs box below for extra information, but we’ll see what the Mitchell is really like in an upcoming test in our magazine, Pat Callinan’s 4X4 Adventures magazine. Haven’t got a subscription? Pick one up for less than half a tank of diesel today, at the MR4X4 SHOP.
