Motorcycle camping trailers are out there, but they're not as common a sight on roadways as car and truck camping trailers. In fact, we didn't notice a single motorcycle trailer at last year's Overland Expo, a show split neatly between off-road campers and adventure motorcycles. Perhaps we should have traveled to Bend, Oregon, instead. That's the birthplace of the new Freespirit Spitfire XT, a rig that carries a pop-up tent and storage box behind any capable bike or small car. Read More

Back in November we reported on Denmark-based Mads Johansen's effort to manufacture a novel two person caravan that can be towed by bicycle. Johansen reports that he has finished refining his design and the Wide Path Camper is now available for pre-order. Read More

Over the past few years, we've seen a barrage of tiny, ultralight camping trailers hit the market. We won't say that it's a new trend, since man has been constructing lightweight road trip shelters for nearly as long as he's had an automobile to tow them, but some interesting ideas and designs have definitely been bubbling to the surface lately. The Mogo Freedom trailer is the latest member of this rising tide, opening the walls of camping trailer design to create a super-simple, ultra-versatile shelter and toy hauler. Read More
At this year's Japan Camping Car Show in Tokyo, Honda has unveiled a two-piece concept that takes the kei car camping. Based on Honda's popular N-Box that was released in 2012 and following on from other N-Box-based concepts on display at the 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon, the N-Truck looks like a micro semi-articulated truck and couples with the N-Camp, a pint-sized caravan/trailer.

The Hütte Hut is a tiny teardrop trailer that could be a good fit for somebody looking for a caravan with very small physical footprint. It measures a total of just 4 sq m (44 sq ft), and has enough room to sleep two adults. Read More

Last year, German camper specialist Knaus Tabbert used the Düsseldorf Caravan Salon to present its vision of the future camping trailer. The yacht-inspired Caravisio was a large, luxurious home-on-wheels with some careful aerodynamic treatments. This year, Knaus went small, light and simple, presenting the Travelino concept, a compact trailer outfitted with space- and weight-saving features. Read More
The Teal Tail Feather camper offers a mix of versatility and affordability that few competitors can match. Still, Teal hasn't stopped innovating and dropping prices just yet. The company has just launched a small, pop-top camper kit with a price of US$2,500. Like the original Tail Feather, the Tail Feather MINI 8.4 is a modular camper that assembles inside a standard utility trailer. Read More
We saw dozens of camping trailers at last month's Overland Expo. Some, like the Moby1, we've covered in the past, but there were also a number of new models. One of our favorites was the Turtleback Trailer, which packs many of the comforts of home in a rugged body that's ready to climb and claw its way through the desert, mountains and forest. Read More
Built from military technology and optimized for off-road adventure, the Xventure XV-2 trailer from Schutt Industries is a versatile gear-hauler and people-sleeper. Instead of cramping trailer space with its tent hardware, the rugged, off-road tow-along has an adjustable upper deck for sleeping and a lower cargo bed for hauling tools and toys. The trailer can be customized with everything you need to survive and thrive in the backwoods. Read More
