  • Smittybilt | Part Number: S/B87400
  • Fitment:Universal Fit


Smittybilt thought of everything with their new Scout Trailer. Starting with a fully boxed galvanized steel frame which is then powder coated with the under carriage featuring heavy duty undercoating. The Scout boasts a payload of 1763 pounds that allows you to carry enough gear for even your biggest adventures. Two-inch receivers are found at each end of the trailer that allow the use of articulating hitches and the addition of hitch mounted accessories. Three off-road jacks make the Scout easy to unhook and level. Electric axle brakes in conjunction with a self-charging trailer break away system provide the ultimate security in the event of trailer detachment and meet trailer brake laws in all 50 states. The independent trailing arm suspension features coil springs, dual shocks and limit straps which are both simple and reliable while providing a smooth ride. The galvanized 14-gauge powder coated tub has a large main compartment and two side cabinets meaning that you will never run out of space again. The side cabinets make a perfect spot to fit your generator or a camp kitchen, with easy access and locking t-handles. Removable steel fenders accommodate almost any size tire and an aluminum tongue box is perfect for deep cycle batteries and electrical systems. Below the instant-up tent(optional) by the main cabinet of the Scout houses dual sliding floors with four tie down points per slider and dual locking T-handles. Rain gutter rails allow for even further mounting of rack systems to carry your kayaks, bicycles, or whatever toys you want bring along on your next backcountry journey.

5.0 Great for camping, hiking, hunting

Let’s start with the downside, you have to put it together or pay to have it assembled., so add that to the cost with taxes, and registration. Now to the good part! You can have it assembled, comes with a normal size spare tire, great slide out trays. Kitchen area has a dish wash tray. I put a tent on top, an awning, water tank, and shower station. Technically you could be off grid for some time with this if you add propane, which I did. Get a fridge and solar battery. I also put an articulating hitch on for better stability and driving off road. I am actually, regretfully, selling mine, but such great rigs.

Great offroad large capacity trailer. Can setup camp and then go off roading or anywhere else you need to go without having to pull the trailer.

Q: Will 4WP provied installation service so I can pick up a functional trailer from store Answer this question

A: Yes they can do this. That’s the route I took. Did a great job. I would recommend going and checking all other bolts and screws though. The ones that weren’t part of the 4WP installation on mine were loose, some no better than finger tight. Check em all and get some lock-tite.
