Bicycle Campers: The Ultimate Way To Travel Light

Kamp-Rite Bicycle Tent Trailer

Forget the memories of the family wagon toting the popup camper—this one is pure pedal power. If you’re into traveling light, it doesn’t get any lighter than this!

    Made in Australia, the Midget Solo Bushtrekka by Kamp-Rite ($899) features a popup tent with room for an oversize cot and storage space underneath. The elevated tent keeps you well above any cold, wet ground.

    No storage space is sacrificed to make room for the tent. The bike trailer features three storage compartments with over 41 gallons of storage.

    Instead of tent poles, the Topeak Bikamper ($189) uses a bike and its front wheel for support. The lightweight one-person tent easily folds down to a compact pack that can be strapped to the bike's handlebars.
