Alto Safari Condo Full Walk-Through | Teardrop Camper Trailer


so we’re still in florida and we’re
visiting Kait’s family her aunt and uncle actually have this
awesome teardrop trailer we saw a bunch of these at the show so we thought we would walk you through this one it’s an Alto by Safari Ccondo and a great
feature about this is this whole top actually lifts up so that when you walk
in you can actually stand in the whole trailer we saw a lot of the more that
wasn’t really possible you kind of had to crouch down but not in this one so let’s go in and take a look I’m inside the Alto this is with the top down I’m 5’11” and I can almost stand straight up not quite but this is perfect if you
want to come in grab something out of the fridge use the bathroom or just have a quick
meal without actually popping the top there’s also enough room let me show
you over here there’s enough room if you want to sleep with the top down but
we’re about to show you how easy it is for the top to come up one incredible
thing about this is you cannot hear a thing so the whole top is up and actually
starts back here and gives you room across the entire roof and then this
piece actually folds up and out to create a much larger room inside so let’s go in and see what it looks
like all popped out now that the trailer is up we have to bring up the cushion in the
back because this whole piece came up and out lift up there you go there is a ton of room in here with all
the windows and everything it actually feels like a tree house it’s amazing how much light this let’s in
I can actually stand almost all the way back to the bed without hitting my head
so let’s see right about there and there’s a ton of room two beds you
can actually put something in the middle to create a larger bed there are curtains that cover all of the
windows in this coach you just unlatch them and then roll them
down there is a curtain that goes across the middle so if you want some sort of
privacy while you’re sleeping someone’s in the bathroom or having
dinner you have that option they did not get
the wet bath option but it is a bathroom a lot of storage in here and small
toilet it does have a black tank this is not a cassette toilet it has aircraft quality latches so just push that in you’re locked open so Safari Condo has actually built in a
lot of storage to the Alto you look under the bed this is all storage there’s also storage on this side and you’ve got your water heater under here water pump so all that stuff is accessible this goes all the way back so it came with these really cool wedges stick them up against the window and now you have a really comfortable place to sit read work and this is a really it’s a very hard foam but it’s perfect for your back I feel like I’m on a very comfortable
couch right now so Kait could be sitting across from me there’s also a way to bring the table
over here so we could sit eat again work do stuff nice little area little lights bedside lights on both sides a little counter and the back window opens for nice
ventilation so there’s a fantastic vent up above simple knob model the galley area is very well set up there’s your sink faucet will pop up there is a gas stove with two burners little cutting board small microwave and then again storage for all of your stuff there’s a small Dometic refrigerator
this runs on propane in the galley is also the controls for the
Domestic AC unit it’s got AC as well as a furnace and a heat pump and from what our family tells us
it works very well in this unit the light switches are actually hidden
behind this little cabinet and then you have a nice
storage area on both sides and they are held in by velcro so this isn’t
going to come flying open while you’re driving down the road they’re also more curtains
here on the side bring those up and over and here is a dining area since you are limited on space they have done something that if I’m sitting here and someone
needs to get in on that side I can simply slide the table over the table also turns if needed but again I mean very comfortable area there’s a nice LED strip light above here I’ve got plenty of headroom and again i have these huge expense of
windows that just let everything in so if you’re in the forest you literally feel like you’re in a tree
house in here this is awesome so we’re really impressed this is a small trailer I believe that weighs in just under
2,000 pounds dry it’s got a max weight of 2,700 pounds so
after your water and that you probably left with about 600 pounds of
cargo capacity which for something this size
is fantastic this is a great option for those looking
to tow behind a Jeep and kind of really get out there and don’t have that
huge towing capacity of a big truck or something so this is a this is a great little
setup we really like it so here’s the info system for
the tanks hold that down it will show you how you doing switch
for the water pump this is the switch to raise and lower
the top similar to Joe my favorite feature
about this trailer that I’ve not seen anything else
is all the amazing windows and the views in here I’m sitting across from Joe and you know
granted were in a neighborhood right now but the windows just makes me feel like
I’m a part of the outside without being in the elements it’s a the little cold in
Florida right now and it’s nice to be in here but still feel
connected to the outside what do you think about downgrading to
this travel trailer? I could I could definitely go for
the camper van or something or one of those supports of those Sportsmobiles we saw
at the RV Super Show I think this would be awesome if we wanted to
take the Jeep and go find some really cool back roads my problem with it is I don’t think I could
live full time in it there’s no full-size shower so there’s a
they have an extension here or a little thing where they can hook it up to the side
and there’s an outdoor shower so that’s nice it’s convenient but it doesn’t really work if you’re
out in the snow or something down it goes so this Alto has an aluminum skin and one very cool feature I found was this
outdoor light now while this is simple most rvs like ours you actually have to
go inside to turn on the light and that doesn’t help me out very much when I’m you know it’s dark I’m fumbling
for my keys I can’t see the keyhole all you have to do is turn that on you
got light simple coming around got a 120 volt outlet two of them
down here on the roof two small flexible solar panels so this is going to charge your
batteries while you drive or you’re just camped and a very nice accessory rail
that goes all the way over we’ve been told you can add things like
an outdoor tent bug screen all sorts of stuff using this 12 volt deep cycle battery 5 gallon propane tank underneath here there’s a spare tire and the rated tongue weight for this
is 300 pounds coming around the side there’s a locked
access panel also locked freshwater tank you have your outdoor shower here and then 30 amp plug before you get too excited about this you should know that there
is a year and a half waiting period right now to get an
Alto by Safari Condo so if you really want one put your order
in now it actually took my family nine months
to get theirs and that was two years ago our favorite thing about this trailer is that no matter where you are
you get a fantastic view again you could be in a forest out
in the desert and it feels like you’re sitting in a
tree house just looking out over the world and my favorite part is that even
if I’m standing using the bathroom I have a wonderful view
