Okay, so this isn't a Jeep or even a vehicle per se but, it is something that people who enjoy camping might be interested in. For the 2015 SEMA Show, Smittybilt brought out what they are calling the Recon Overlander Trailer and with a price tag of about $5000 which will include the trailer, 31" ProComp AT tires, wheels and roof top tent, it'll for sure give some of the bigger overland trailer companies a run for their money. Check out the video to see and hear all the details.

What was the price?

Now that's pretty interesting. Looks like they actually put some thought into this. I'd be interested if the price was right. I just sold my trailer and already regretting it. [emoji22]

Sorry about that, the price is $4900 and that includes the tent, wheels and tires. Hell of a good deal.

Holy shit, that cheap if you ask me. But the smittybilt name makes me wonder on the quality

That's a damn good price! The welds might be shitty but that can be taken care of lol

That's freaking awesome for 4900, I'd definitely be into that for a quarter of the price of the higher dollar ones

Nice can't wait to see the video. Price tag is nice but I too am skeptical about a Smittybuilt anything.

So, this was the 2nd prototype that was made and the quality of it was actually pretty nice. That being said, I don't know who will ultimately be doing the manufacturing. If they all turn out to be made here in the USA and at this quality, I might buy one.

I agree with you. If its stout and not the usual cheezy, I am in.

I found a few photos of this trailer on another website. Not near as good as Wayalife photos but it shows the rear location open.

really nice setup. Seen sturdier built units, but man the price with everything but the generator is really competitive.

Looks like they did real good on this design-wise. Awesome price too. Dammit!

[emoji115]🏻this. So wary of Smittybilt name, but glad to hear it looks well-made.

GUYS THANKS for the updates on this trailer and as to be expected doing a GREAT job on the coverage out there!! :thumb:
Gotta say, its peeked my interested, but like others have said, just questioning the SmittyBilt name on this thing for the overall quality! :question:

I was told by a Smittybilt rep at SEMA that the price was $5000. I saw one of Smittybilt's Jeeps pulling the trailer through town here in Moab yesterday, if I catch up with them here sometime during the week I'll ask them again about the price and status.

Yup. That's all I saw too. Unless I'm blind, I don't see a price anywhere on the brochure.

I stopped into a 4WheelParts today, they called Smittybilt, and they said end of the year now. The guy at 4Wheel said he was also told there is going to be 3 different size options, no idea if that was as far as tires and lift, or the trailer itself.
