‘Fold-out cabin on wheels’

When it comes to choosing a rig, many grey nomads think it’s a straight choice between a caravan, campervan, motorhome, fifth wheeler, or camper trailer … but there are some new and innovative options out there.

High on the ‘I-can’t-believe-someone-thought-of-that’ list has to be the Camp365 … which is best described as a fold-out cabin on wheels.

Other than the fact it’s going to get you noticed when you drive into a new camping area, the trailer has one major advantage over its more-established rivals … its slimline folded-down shape makes it pretty easy to store once the journey is over.

‘I just pull this up’

When folded down, the Camp365 is 122cm wide and 203cm tall. For travellers with limited storage space at their home bases, that could be a game changer. After all, who wants to spend a small fortune on rig storage if you don’t have to.

‘I just pull this up”Now, I just pull this down.’The fact that the unloaded base trailer only weighs about 680kg also means that long-distance travellers might chooses tow it with a cheaper, more fuel-efficient tug.

One of the downsides most people would immediately associate with a rig like this is the hassle and time involved in getting it all set up. However, the US designers say its proprietary lift-assist system allows it to get from travelling mode to sit-down-and-relax mode in just 10 minutes.

Once it has been expanded, the Camp365 offers nine square metres of living space and plenty of headroom, even for basketball-player-sized travellers! And got got all the usual mod cons, too.

‘And push this up’
