This Amphibious Camper Trailer Let’s You Explore By Land & Water
RV sales are booming this year, and the roads are getting crowded. What if you could avoid the crowds by taking to the water? The Sealander camper trailer lets you do exactly that.
This amphibious RV can be towed on land, or motored on water.
Today we’re sharing all the deets about this unique trailer!
Let’s dive in.
About The Sealander Camper Trailer
If you haven’t heard of Sealander before, it’s probably because the company is based in Germany. Virtually no towable RVs are imported to the USA.
However, if you have the desire (and funds) to ship one of these trailers to the USA, you’ll be the talk of the RV park (or marina).
Sealander has been designing and manufacturing these units since 2012.
Unlike the top 5 American Fiberglass Campers, this RV is truly revolutionary.
What are the Specs of the Sealander?
First and foremost, the Sealander is lightweight. The most substantial version weighs only 1,200 pounds. Almost any vehicle with a hitch can tow it!
Additionally, it has a carrying capacity of 440 pounds. Once you get two adults in there, it doesn’t leave much room for accessories. You’ll have just enough to load it up with cold beverages and snacks.
On-board you’ll have an 80 AH gell battery. The sink carries 13 liters of water, and the shower has a 16-liter tank.
The length of the trailer varies depending if its on land or in water. The land length is 13 feet, and the water length is 15.2 feet.
What Amenities Does the Sealander Offer?
The Sealander comes with a base package that includes limited amenities. Here’s what you’ll find in that package:
- Reinforced fiberglass shell
- Lockers, cabinet doors and panels of lightweight plywood panels
- Waterproof uniaxial chassis
- 13-inch steel rims with 185/55 tires
- Two tinted panorama acrylic glass
- Entry and swim ladder with polished stainless steel support function
- Handrails and fittings in polished stainless steel
- Exhauster for ventilation
Upgrades packages include higher-quality interior cushions, sound systems, shower upgrades, kitchen upgrades, aluminum wheel upgrade, and many other add-on choices.
Sealander gives the buyer the ability to customize the amenities to fit their unique travel style.
Putting the Sealander in Water
Sealander offers instruction-graphs on their website and videos on their YouTube channel to put the camper trailer in the water.
They make it look easy!
Its basically like backing a boat down a boat ramp.
Regardless, the launch would be terrifying the first time.
The Sealander Would Be Fun To Take Boondocking (aka Free Camping)
To be honest with you, we hate paying for camping. There are so many free campsites in America (with complete privacy).
You should give it a try!
As a matter of fact, these free campsites are yours. Every time you pay federal taxes, you’re contributing to these lands.

The Sealander doesn’t look like it has much freeboard. Any waves over 12 inches would swamp this thing! Is a sump pump included? Lifevests?
That looks like someone used the concept of a lifeboat and converted it to a tiny RV.
$18k for the base model plus shipping to the states. You can keep it.
