Saint-Nicolas, Quebec-based Safari Condo introduced the Alto R Series (R-1713 and R-1723) camping trailers.

Both tear drop trailers are lightweight and boast an aerodynamic shape increasing the ease of towing.

The design incorporates an electric retractable roof providing more interior space than traditional teardrop trailers.

The desire to combine the aerodynamic features with an increased vertical space inside led to the retractable roof design, according to Daniel Nadeau, CEO of Safari Condo.

With an exterior height of only 83.5 inches with the roof down, all R-series Alto models fit easily in a garage. With the roof up, they offer a comfortable living space with an 82-inch interior clearance.

Their front dining area is usable even with the rear bed deployed. Beds, fridge, storage, and toilet are all usable even with the roof down.

You can create two different dining areas by simply moving the table. A model with indoor shower is available.

The seamless aluminum retractable roof is built in a single piece of curved Alufiber/aluminum sandwich panel. It is opened and closed by a pair of electric linear actuators. Its crescent-shaped windows are tinted tempered glass.

With the retractable roof down, the aerodynamic shape of the Alto, developed in a virtual wind tunnel, creates 75 percent less aerodynamic drag than a traditional travel trailer. This factor, along with its lightweight, makes the Alto readily towable by most compact cars and small SUVs.

Worth Pondering…

There is little to disturb me

But the pine squirrel falling cones.

In the inlet is a splashing,

It’s the dollys in a fight

Over who will use that riffle

For to spawn their eggs tonight.

—Cy Bingham (1904)
