SAN FRANCISCO — Opus Camper USA announced it will be releasing the Opus Outback this summer, the latest model designed for fully off-road camping.
The Opus Outback combines the luxury and space of the original Opus Camper with an upgraded, all-terrain chassis, the company noted.
New standard features include 42-gallon on-board water system, built-in shower and a slide out kitchen.
The off-road design originated in Australia, driven by the extreme conditions of the Australian Outback. Opus Australia has already seen huge success with this model and with large forward orders racking up, the release noted.
The design upgrades include a chassis with independent torsion suspension, a 12-inch minimum ground clearance and an angled rear cut-out. Weighing in at just 2,870 pounds curb weight, the Opus Outback can be towed by most six-cylinder SUVs and even has the option for a cargo rack or racking system on the roof to haul up to 700 pounds of gear.
The Opus Outback sets up in less than 10 minutes, including the external slide-out kitchen with four-burner gas stove and battery powered sink as well as the outside shower.
Inside the camper, the leatherette club lounge offers a comfortable respite from the outdoors and the 8ft ceiling and large skylights make the camper bright and spacious. Two queen-sized beds are located at each end of the camper and the club lounge folds down to sleep another two.
The Opus Outback is also fully compatible with the Air Opus inflating tent upgrade, available on this model starting in September.
