Highland Expedition Outfitters
" I have been camping nearly all my life. It all started at age 8 selling greeting cards to get enough points to receive a two man pup tent. We lived at the edge of a small town in rural Western Ohio. Behind our house was an old abandoned gravel pit owned by my Grandfather. My wonderful parents allowed me to pitch my tent there within sight ofthe kitchen window. For the next 8 years, every summer, I camped there, cooking my own meals over a campfire, gaining self reliance and the love of the great outdoors. The Boy Scouts of America also opened many other opportunities for camping. At age 13, I hiked and camped the mountains of Northern New Mexico at the Philmont Boy Scout Camp. After attending college for engineering I acquired a job working for Airstream’s sister company, Argosy. For the next three years, I learned the trade of building RVs. From there, I worked over 25 years in the machine tool trade gaining more manufacturing and management skills. I have owned several campers during my lifetime, all “stick and staple” and prone to leak and rot. So at the age of 57, I decided with the support of my loving wife, to build a better and different camper.
Born is Highland Expedition Outfitters and my commitment to you, fellow camper, to build the highest quality aluminum camper available! Every HEO Trailer is skillfully assembled here in East Tennessee, just outside of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park with the attention for detail and care. "

Owner of HEO
Manufactured entirely of MIG-welded 6061 aluminum, the HEO (Highland Expedition Outfitters) camping trailer is for those wishing to extend their adventures into the backcountry. The HEO T Series trailers feature a 57-cubic-foot tub constructed of durable double-wall ACM (aluminum composite material) and aluminum studs that provides plenty of room to store and transport all your camping gear to remote camping destinations. Weighing in at only 700 pounds, your Jeep will have no trouble towing the HEO T Series Overland Trailer. Access to gear can be gained through a side door, tailgate, and sliding cargo trays. Sitting atop the trailer is a CVT Mt. Hood rooftop tent.
Boasting large 30-inch tires and a 3,000-pound GVWR Rockwell American Equalizer Torsion Axle with 3,500-pound GVWR spindles and 10-inch electric brakes, the T Series offers 16 inches of ground clearance. The standard-equipment Lock-n-Roll 3 Axis Off Road Coupler allows full mobility over the roughest terrain. Major optional equipment available includes a 6-cubic-foot aluminum box on the trailer tongue, jerry cans, propane tank, kayak rack, custom vinyl wrap/paint, solar panel system for basic AC/DC electric, and a Timbren Heavy Duty Off Road suspension system.
