Black Series HQ15 off-road travel trailer sets new standards for this segment of the RV industry. It’s an example of robustness, ingenuity, quality and elegance that will be difficult to match by the competition. Designed for families of 2+1, it is a very reasonably priced model that can be towed by larger SUVs or F150 -class of trucks. With more than 30 thousand of HQxx models already on Australian Outback trails, its well matured designs in versions modified for the North American market are now available in the US.
Note that layouts (floorplans) of American versions of Black Series’ models are mirrored Australian layouts. This is to accommodate trailers for right-side driving. Unfortunately, most pictures available online represent the original Australian left-side drawing models.
