The HC1 Camper Trailer Let’s You Play Real Life Legos With the Interior
Camping seems to have taken on a whole new meaning since I was a kid. Nowadays, people seem to want to be at home no matter where they are in the world. Is this the way things should be? Or should we be running around with a hunting knife and a loincloth?

The HC1 Camper Trailer Let’s You Play Real Life Legos With the Interior

Let’s get real people. The days of running around with a stick and rock are over. Today, you can just hitch this trailer up to your car and bring comfort and style wherever you wish to pitch a tent. And what trailer might that be? None other than the HC1 from Happier Camper.

Personally, I urge you to have a look in the gallery before continuing this text. Better yet, you can just cut out the messenger (me) and get your info straight from the source by clicking here. I’ll be honest with you. If I were to sit here and walk you through everything this little puppy can do, we’d really be here till the cows come home. If you’ve ever owned cattle, you know what this means.

Enough about cattle. What about the HC1? Well, just look at it, it's a thing of beauty. Have you ever seen a more visually balanced and smoother camping trailer? Not since the last 60s or 70s movie. No matter what era it may look like it’s from, I can assure you it’s one of the most modern trailers out there.

I’m just going to do a quick recap of some base specs, and then we’ll dive into what this little bugger can do. All in all, it rolls in with a 1,100-lb (499-kg) dry weight. This is just 110 lbs (49.8 kg) more than the Woolly Bear trailer, which can be towed by most four-cylinder vehicles. The shell comes in with a length of 10 ft (3.04 m), with an inside width of 6 ft 6 in (1.98 m). The only downside might be the 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m) of interior headroom. All of that gives way to 42 sq ft (3.9 sq m) of walkable floor space.

Now here’s where things get out of hand. Happier Camper developed and used something known as Adaptiv components. Just to keep things simple and to the point, imagine a floor grid something like the tops of Lego pieces. And what do you do with Lego pieces, aside from stepping on them? You build things. That’s basically what happens here as well.

Atop that grid, you place everything from a bunk bed and couch to a tabletop, kitchenette, toilet, and even fridge. Each piece of furnishing occupies a designated amount of space and can be moved around the trailer at will. When I say at will, I really mean at will.

Imagine you’re out with the missus parked on the edge of some sea-facing ridge you saw the year before. One night, you guys decide you want to throw a little personal dance party. To make room, you take out the kitchen, toilet, bed, and even bench. All you leave in place is the countertop as a place for your turntable. Once the dancing is done, just throw everything back in its place or redecorate the whole thing.

As far as survival necessities, the HC1 is also solar and off-grid ready and can even include a shower as an option. Before I get any further and take up your time with all the tweaks and options this seemingly small trailer can offer, I will once again urge you to click the link at the top of the text and check out this design from the source. It’s always best.

Now, I know that Christmas is over, and we’re still technically in quarantine mode worldwide, but once everything is back to normal, I recommend you whip out some of your savings (starting at $29,950) and pick up one of these for you and four other family members. That’s right, I nearly forgot to mention that this little caravan can sleep up to five people.

If you’re not convinced, we’ll keep showing you what else is floating around the backwoods of the world, and by spring next year, you’ll be set to take a wise decision for your traveling wants and needs.
