When you think about the exterior appearance of a camping trailer, the two shapes that probably come to mind are a teardrop or a rectangle on wheels. The Aliner Evolution goes for a completely different approach by opting for A-frame styling.
The Aliner Evolution features pop-up panels on each side of the roof, which creates more living space inside. The model comes standard with a 185-watt Sunflare Flex 60 solar panel for off-grid power. Four stabiliser jacks keep the trailer steady while camping. Other exterior amenities include an amber porch light, an electrical outlet, and a water hookup. As an option, there's an outside grille available.

Inside, the Evolution is 15 feet (4,572 millimetres) long, and Aliner makes the most of that footprint. The rear sofa folds out into a bed measuring 80 inches by 60 inches (200 x 150 centimetres). The dinette benches can convert into a queen-sized mattress or a pair of 22-inch by 60-inch (55 x 150 cm) bunks.
This camping trailer also has a kitchenette with a sink, stove, and a 3-cubic-foot (85 litre) refrigerator. The Evolution carries a 35-gallon (132 litre) fresh water tank.
A surprising feature in such a small vehicle is that there's a deployable shower. When in place, it measures 32 inches by 32 inches (812 x 812 mm). The device can stow away into the floor. Also, a cabinet hides a cassette toilet.
When resting inside, lots of natural light is available. There are two skylights, and the pop-up panels have windows. Plus, the wall opposite of the entry door has three windows in a triangular orientation.
Aliner uses lots of durable finishes inside this trailer. The floor is a polyvinyl material that's waterproof and slip-resistant. The cabinets and furniture use a marine-grade material called Boatboard.
The Aliner Evolution uses a tubular steel frame that is e-coated. The dry weight is less than 2,300 pounds (1,043 kilograms), and the gross vehicle weight rating is 3,500 pounds (1,588 kilograms).
Prices for the Aliner Evolution start at $39,000 (approx. £35,000), a company spokesperson tells Motor1.com.
