A Look At The Opus Off-Road Camper
If you’re looking for your next off-road camper, keep your eye on the new Opus OP 15′ Hybrid Caravan. This camper offers a comfortable and compact living space that you can take just about anywhere! It’s built for heavy-duty travel and is perfectly designed for an adventurous couple or family.
With the compact 15-foot-long design, this is also a camper that you can take pretty much anywhere. The camper itself is about the same size as a truck or SUV, so you should have no problem fitting into the average campsite.
This is definitely an RV to keep your eye on. Opus has always been an innovative player in the RV industry, and this new model fits their style perfectly.
The OP 15′ Hybrid Caravan has one connected living space inside. There are no separate rooms (besides the bathroom) but this design helps the small space feel more open.
One of the best things about this model is the extendable roof. Some campers can feel a bit cramped, but this Opus RV provides room to stretch out. When the top is fully extended, you can enjoy ceilings that are 6 feet and 5 inches tall. This will be especially handy for any tall campers in your group!
Although this camper might seem small at first, it can actually accommodate 4-5 people. This unit is outfitted with a king-sized bed at one end, and a set of bunk beds on the other side. The bunk beds come with privacy curtains, which is a nice touch for everyone. In a pinch, someone could also sleep on the cushioned, couch-like dinette.
There is also a good amount of personal storage space in the interior. A large set of drawers and dressers occupy one of the walls. They’re made from solid bamboo, which gives the interior a bright, natural touch. These bamboo accents can be found all over this camper’s design. It really ties it together and gives everything a feeling of unity.
A large TV is mounted on one of the dressers and it’s angled toward the king-sized bed. It can swivel outward to face the sofa/dinette. This TV is a great addition to family movie events or a cozy date night!
Finally, a full bathroom is included in the floor plan as well. It has all the essentials you need, including a shower, sink, and chemical toilet. All of these can be powered by the camper’s freshwater tanks, so you don’t need hookups to enjoy the full off-road camper experience.
Although the interior of this camper can fit a lot of great features, the floor plan extends outside as well. You may have noticed that there was no kitchen included in the interior section. That’s because the OP 15′ Hybrid Caravan has a full kitchen on the outside! This way, you won’t have to compromise on cooking your favorite meals, but can still enjoy extra living space inside.
The outdoor kitchen is made from stainless steel appliances, which will hold up well in a variety of terrains and conditions. There are two main sections, which extend outward from the camper’s exterior storage lockers. Everything folds in and out neatly, making it easy to set up camp.
The kitchen appliances include:
- An electric cooler that functions as a combination fridge/freezer
- A stainless steel cutting board
- Countertop space for food preparation
- Outdoor pantry access
- A gas-powered, 4-burner range
- Slide out drawers for utensils
- A stainless steel sink
- Countertop storage racks
We all love a good campfire meal, but this outdoor kitchen will take your next camping trip to new heights. The exterior also has some handy features that off-road campers will love. It’s outfitted with a power step, a TV antennae and exterior TV hinge, and a 30Ah main power inlet.
In addition, this model comes with 2 spare tires attached to the back. Off-roading can be tough on a vehicle, but you can rest easy knowing that you have a couple of extra layers of backup if something goes wrong.
Important vehicle specifications
It can be hard to strike a balance between an RV’s size, comfort, and capabilities. Many adventurous campers want a smaller camper that can handle rough terrain. While there are lots of options available, they sometimes have to sacrifice elements of comfort and convenience. Many smaller RVs don’t include kitchens or bathrooms at all.
Luckily, Opus has created a well-balanced vehicle with this model. Below are some important specifications for potential buyers to consider. All of the following data comes from the OP 15′ Hybrid Caravan product page.
- Curb Weight: 4,960 lbs
- Gross Vehicle Weight Rating: 6,600 lbs
- Tongue Weight: 410 lbs
- Exterior Length: 15′
- Exterior Width: 7′
- Ride Height (pop-top closed): 8’ 10″
- Interior Height (pop-top open): 6’ 5”
- Interior Height (pop-top closed): 5’ 5″

- Interior Length (with extendable room): 17′ 11″

It’s quite impressive that Opus managed to fit a king-sized bed, a set of bunk beds, and a full bathroom in a 15-foot unit. There’s also a good amount of storage, plus the exterior kitchen adds an extra layer of convenience.
Overall, this is the perfect off-road camper, especially for people who want to dry camp without hassle. The OP 15′ Hybrid Caravan has a water storage capacity of 63 gallons, so you’ll be set up for a good amount of time! You won’t need to rely on campsites and hookups when you’re traveling in this RV.

The RV industry is constantly in flux. New designs premiere every year and it can be hard to keep track of the truly great models compared to the tiny tweaks in older designs. However, I feel confident in saying that the Opus’s new off-road camper is destined for success. Although it’s a newcomer to the market, it has everything it needs to succeed.
This off-road camper is definitely worth a look. For more information about this model, including local dealership stock, check out the OP15 product page.
