Check this 5 min video out, it has a little teardrop camper we all can tow behind out bikes, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1z7QnNkMgF0
Simple and well thought out, just the shot for one to use as the ultimate off the ground bed when camping.

So far the only flaw I could find in the whole video was that none of us were towing it with our bikes.
Sure beats climbing out of asleeping bagon the ground don't it. Very Happy

I use a LuxuryLite cot to stay off of the ground. Very compact when packed and only 3 lbs 2 oz.

Great simple idea and design, Although the open nature of it would need some further developmnet here.

These have now gone into formal production and there is a detailed thread on the ADV rider forum.

I had some contact with the designer/owner and whereas he doesn't do plans he did suggest there was no impediment to building a similar one outside the U.S., where he holds a design patent.

He might be pushed to get that recognised. I've been reading these guys on and off for years (Teardrops N Tiny Trailers): http://tnttt.com/.

The patent is a done deal Dai. I saw copies of the cert online.

The Luxurylite is a nice little cot. Duck Very Happy

The copying of his design is fine so far as you are not intending to sell any, anyone can copy and use for ourselves. Just going into competition with him is patent protected? No?

The sliding draw bar isn't new, been used for multi use utility trailers. The concertina bed isn't new, been done in camping before. But Joining the two together in a micro camper for our bikes?, I can recall a motorbike trailer that had a steel drawer that slid forward over the drawbar and enables the rider to sleep on it or in it, but it was primarily larger than this one.
Its cute, its do-able and small enough for one to sleep on too. Any bed higher than a milk crate is a winner with me.

Certainly doing a double bed version and towed behind some of those little shopping trolley cars would see many out camper traileringrather than tenting it.
