“The Boulder” trailer has a 75 kWh battery pack built into its frame.
American camper trailer company Colorado Teardrops has unveiled its first purpose-built model for electric vehicles. Called The Boulder, it’s capable of recharging your EVs batteries when camping and can also accept DC fast charging itself.
The 12-foot teardrop camper has a 75 kilowatt-hours battery pack embedded into its powder-coated steel frame that can top-up the car’s main battery pack when parked. Dry weight is rated at 2,200 pounds (998 kilograms), which is less than I was expecting – for comparison, the conventional, battery-less Mount Massive trailer from Colorado Teardrops weighs 1,470 lbs (667 kg).
Moreover, the company’s website says that The Boulder can act like a “Powerwall on wheels,” providing energy to not just your EV, but also to your house. Because of this, it can qualify for a roughly $12,000 federal tax credit under the Inflation Reduction Act.
The EV-specific trailer can accommodate up to four people in a fully-insulated cabin with a seating arrangement that converts to a queen-size bed and two bunk beds. It has a body length of 150 inches and an overall length of 195 inches, while the inside cabin width measures 60 inches.
Aircraft-grade aluminum is used throughout the body and the interior cabin is furnished with hardwood, and there are several 110-volt electrical outlets scattered throughout the trailer.
The Boulder has a starting price of $67,000 and there are several options you can choose on top of the standard build, like a 2,000-watt air conditioning unit for $3,250, a propane heater for $2,000, and a water tank with hand pump for $650.
Development is still in progress, but Colorado Teardrops already finished its first prototype for The Boulder and has two more EV-specific models in the pipeline: The Golden, which will be a 17-foot luxury travel trailer with a 125-kWh battery pack, and The Denver, a 27-foot long trailer with 200 kWh of supplemental power.
