    Default FS: 2012 Adrenalin Rush, Extreme Duty Off-Road Pop-Up Camper.

    All-
    I first want to thank those who followed my thread detailing the build and travels of my beloved 2012 Adrenalin Rush. I will defer to that thread for those wanting an indepth look at the camper and my thoughts on it's performance, usability, livability and suggestions for improvement. The original thread can be found here.

    I will paraphrase the specs from Adrenalin's Website.

    The Adrenalin is a hard floor fold over tent trailer that has been built and thoroughly tested in Australia for 8 years, the US version uses the same basic design. The trailers frame/chassis is built on fully boxed 1/8” steel and it’s body is folded 1/8” Aluminum. The frame is built in Montrose, Colorado and the body, up the road in Delta. The trailer features independent swing arms with adjustable Air bags. Full Stats from their website are listed below.


    Chassis — All American Steel, 0.118 Thick
    Body — Folded 0.118-Thick Aluminum
    Suspension — Fully Independent Swing Arm with Air Bag and Shock Absorber
    Wheels — 16x8 Rims with 235/70/16 All-Terrain Tires
    Cooking — 3-Burner Stainless Steel Stove
    Water — 20-Gallon Food Grade Water Tank, Stainless Steel Sink with Electric Pump
    Sleeping — Queen-Size Bed, 4" Foam Mattress
    Canvas — 4X Waterproof 450g High-Quality Canvas
    Awning — Fully Enclosed Awning, PVC Floor, 3 Split Walls for Easy Assembly
    Storage — Full Width Front Tool Box Plus under-Bed Storage
    Tow Hitch — Custom 360-Degree 4WD Tow Coupler
    Stabilizer Jacks — Heavy-Duty Dual Pin, Foldaway Jacks
    Jockey Wheel — Heavy-Duty Jockey Wheel to Make Moving Easy
    Brakes — 10" Electric Off Road Brakes, Hand Brake
    Lights — All Exterior & Interior LED Lights
    Electronics — Optima 75AH Battery, C-Tek Charger, Fuse Box

    The base camper was $17,500 new and with the addition I have added, this camper sold for ~$19,000. New versions of the camper are listed at ~$21-22k and have received updates.

    This is a complete camper with both side awnings, walls and floors. The canvas is in good to new condition, one of the rooms has not been used and the other has been used twice. The main camper canvas is in good condition and has never been put away wet, is tear free, and has very little surface wear. The body of the camper is in good condition and has some sandblasting on the front from approximately 5000 miles of towing. The BFG All terrains are in excellent condition and the wheels have some scratches and pitting from scraping rocks. The frame has some underbelly scratching and has been touched up with matching touchup from the powdercoater. Other than the obvious wear from a year of camping and towing offroad the camper is in great shape. It is mechanically excellent.

    I am selling for $14,500 firm and will happily deliver anywhere between Denver and Salt Lake or arrange for shipping to pick up at your cost.

    Here is a kinda cheesy video in which I explain the features of the camper.


    Here are a collection of my favorite photos collected over the past year.

    Fair question. I do love the camper and it has allowed my family to continue and improve our camping experience beyond my wildest expectations. That said there are some minor improvements I would like to make to more closely match it to my needs. I have the opportunity to work with the builder on a custom tailored model that will suit my specific needs a little better.

    The tailgate allows access to the above bed and under bed storage cavities. Above the bed there is room for clothing, pillows, cots, awnings etc even when stowed. Below the bed there is a large storage compartment that measures approx. 5' deep x 4' wide x 11" tall. I fit three pelican 1600 cases end to end perfectly in it and a large SS folding table and various other items.

    Several have PMed be about a refrigerator. I have mine in my truck so have never thought of adding one to the trailer, but one could easily be added to the front storage box. Dozens of makes/models will fit. There is a post about some that will somewhere in my review thread. The flat top of the camper front boxes is also conducive to solar panels. I calculated that two boulder 30 and four Boulder 15 goal zeros could be mounted if one had the need.
