Let’s face it, traveling with a camper sometimes isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. They can be bulky, expensive and can take forever to get ready. But one company in Los Angeles called Happier Camper is looking to change all that with their new, retro-inspired design.
They call the camper the “HC1.” It is an “ultra-light travel and utility trailer” that resembles an old Volkswagen Microbus. At just 1,100 pounds, you can pull it behind just about any vehicle. It’s also compact, measuring just 10′ long and 6’11 wide. Because of its small size, you can also fit it into most garages and into a single parking space.
While it is small, the camper comes with all the amenities you will need to enjoy your camping trip. According to the company’s website, the team spent five years coming up with the vintage design. It features things like “a huge rear hatch, wide entry door, classic wheel fenders, honeycomb fiberglass floor and large panoramic windows.”
It also has a versatile interior design. Happier Camper has come up with a modular system called Adaptiv, which allows owners of the HC1 to change the interior of the camper in any number of ways. For example, you can quickly alter the interior from a kitchenette to a sleeping space large enough to sleep four.
They even included indoor/outdoor furniture that you can easily move around and use on the go. They designed the removable cubes to stand up to the elements and to become anything you need them to be. From chairs to tables and storage, they are one of the most versatile pieces of the whole contraption.
Plus, you can make the camper even more useful and customizable when you add on accessories. Not only does it come with a nice price tag of under $20k, but it looks fantastic and is easy to use.
Is this a great camper or what?
