Introducing the Telescopic Bike Camper: A Compact RV for Bikepackers

The Bike Camper is a unique bike trailer that was developed in 2015 by a builder in Lorrach, Germany, according to a report by Autoevolution.

It is designed to be towed by a conventional bicycle, and it offers a full-length bed that can be set up in just a few minutes by propping it up with four legs on each corner and extending a telescopic extension. 

The Bike Camper is lightweight and compact in terms of storage, making it an appealing option for recreational bike enthusiasts who want to explore the great outdoors.

Despite its initial popularity, it is still being determined if the Bike Camper ever entered production. In 2018, it was sold on an online auction site for an undisclosed amount. Its website is still active, but it no longer provides any information on the project, stating that the prototype is not for sale. 

However, there is a note suggesting that a crowdfunding campaign may bring the Bike Camper back into the spotlight, which could be good news for its many supporters.

Bike trailers have yet to become mainstream, possibly due to their high prices. However, they are starting to be seen more frequently in cities, where they are being used to transport children and goods, particularly with cargo e-bikes. 

The Bike Camper is unique in that it offers a full-length bed, which is not a feature found on many other bike trailers. While it may not offer the same level of comfort as a traditional RV, it is a compact and lightweight option for bike enthusiasts who want a more comfortable place to sleep while on the road.

While the Bike Camper may not be the most luxurious option for recreational biking, it does offer a convenient and comfortable place to sleep while on the road. 

Its telescopic extension allows it to be easily stored, and its lightweight design makes it easy to tow. It is an interesting example of the growing trend of bike trailers being used for recreational purposes, and it shows that there is a demand for such products. 

Whether or not the Bike Camper will ever be brought back into production remains to be seen, but its popularity and unique features make it an interesting option for bike enthusiasts.
