Every time we think we’ve seen every possible style and configuration of teardrop/squaredrop trailer, a totally different spin on the genre pops up, often in the Southern Hemisphere. Joining recent Australian innovations like the AOR Sierra, Lumberjack Birdsville and BRS Sherpa comes the South African-designed Mobi X. This tear tucks down tiny inside a fiberglass monohull on the way to camp, but slides out, drops down, pops up and swings around into a large living space with everything a family or group of buddies needs, including the ever-important toilet and shower, a huge kitchen area built to create serious meals and loads of compartmentalized storage.

On the outside, the 12-ft (3.7-m) Mobi X departs from the typical metallic look of other teardrop trailers owing to its clean-white fiberglass monohull reinforced with steel and planted atop a galvanized steel chassis.

It still manages to look plenty rugged and Outback-ready thanks to the chassis-anchored roof ladder and attached shovel up front, jerry cans tucked neatly in purpose-carved nooks at the rear and 16-in Hankook all-terrain tires below. A huge picture window on the driver’s side breaks up the sheer whiteness and looks especially good reflecting the red-orange glow of the setting sun.

Like most other teardrops, the Mobi X has a rear hatch, but this one’s quite different. Instead of a lift-gate that rises up to reveal a shallow galley, the X has a swing-away that accesses a bulging slide-out. Pulling this unit out simultaneously brings out the available fridge and large storage cabinet while freeing up the two-person cabin in which it resides during the ride.
