I’m trying to find the ground clearance of a [email protected] and [email protected] Boondock. I can’t seem to find that information anywhere. I mostly camp off-grid in CO and NM so I’m looking for soemth8ng with decent clearance. Thanks.
My stock 2018 Outback xl with 235/75/15 tires has 13 3/4” clearance at the axle. However, the lowest point is the spare tire. Clearance there is 10 1/2”. The spare can be moved if desired (see discussions elsewhere).
This is with the trailer loaded with standard camping gear but the water tank is empty. I’m guessing this would have little influence on the spare tire clearance and none on the axle.
Nu Camp said clearance on a 2020 [email protected] Boondock is 12”.
My 2020 Boondock XL clearance is:
13.6" at the axle
16.6" to the body
10.25" at the spare tire
The spare is obviously the lowest, but it can be moved. Another thing to consider is how low the jack (and the tongue in general) can get over uneven roads. Something like a "jack-e-up" or "the ultimate jack" can help raise the jack clearance.

Two other points that may be a concern is the tongue wheel / post area and the stabilizing jacks. The tongue wheel post on mine (non-boondock) has impacted the ground while crossing ravine or steep driveways.
Take'em off. I got rid of my stabilizers. (30 lbs!) I got rid of my full size spare (80 lbs! and got a small space saver spare that goes on the original spare rack but doesn't hang down past the frame. I also replaced my tongue jack rolly wheel with a flip-up extension so now it folds tight to the trailer tongue without fiddling with pins. Lowest point on my trailer now is the control arms. Everything else is at or close to frame height or a minum of about 18".
