Could This 6-Stone Bicycle Caravan Change Cycling Holidays Forever?

Ever dreamed of your own private space in the wilderness, rather than a hotel room or an apartment?
Do you ever get the urge to push on as you cycle, but are limited to how far you can go due to pre-booked accommodation at scheduled stop-off points?

Then maybe (and it is a big maybe) you need a Bicycle Camper from Wide Path Camper in your life!

For a mere €4000, you can hit the road on two wheels with your own lightweight caravan right behind you.

Weighing in at just 40kg (just over 6 stone to you imperialists), the 2017 Wide Path Camper can sleep two fully-grown adults with a 97x200cm bed and has 300L of storage space. Plus, when on the road, the camper can be collapsed down to just 1.5m in length and takes only three minutes to prepare for a night’s rest.

During the day, you can even switch up the bed for a kitchen table to enjoy your lunch. And setup wifi in your caravan and you could even have your own towable office!

Optional extras for the caravan include bronze tinted windows, sun cover, an ethanol kitchen stove and even solar panels.

  6. Joe Smith says:

    Good idea but come on 4000euro taking the piss of the leasure industry again.!!!!! . That’s a fair few nights in hostelries.

  7. Daphne Allen says:

    Love it. Would take it to Scotland! Could then keep away from the midgies!

  8. Angela says:

    Love the concept of this. Training for the C2C and this would be a dream to take. Unfortunately us mere mortals would be struggling to pay 4k. I’ll advertise it, if could pull it and keep it – for free. Lol. God loves a trier. Just a normal mum and her girlie pals trying to get fit. X

  9. John Lindsay says:

    Alternative is a tent, fraction of the weight!

  10. Andy Bangs says:

    Not rearly too expensive, a tents lighter a fraction of the price and cheaper to replace if damaged or stolen.

  11. Mark H. Hendricks says:

    So, why not attach an old fork out the back and eliminate the side wheels? This would allow you to lower it a bit and it would be dramatically easier to handle, especially in the wind. Frankly, I just don’t see an advantage of this over something larger, with “canvas” sides that would not catch nearly so much wind. All you are really looking for is a platform to get you off the ground, a place to store things and to keep the weather off of you. I see it as more of an expensive gimmick and novelty than a practical tool.

  12. Ryan says:

    This is a really unique idea! Can’t believe it’s only 40 kg but still, riding uphill would be difficult… But that’s the trade-off for having a convenient caravan =)

    That’s Where a power assisted bike would be useful
