If you want to have the freedom to sleep anywhere on a long cycling trip, but don’t like camping in tents, Wide Path has a solution for you.

 

The Wide Path Camper is an RV unit designed to be drug behind your bicycle. It offers a safe, secure space to store all of your gear and then bunk down for the night inside the extendable hard-shell unit.

 

Weighing in at 100 pounds, the camper isn’t exactly light and casual cyclists will struggle to haul it up any kind of gradient. However, the team behind the Wide Path hails from Denmark, a country of exceedingly flat landscapes where the weight shouldn’t be too much of an issue.

 

The camper unit starts at $4,000, and a series of extras such as solar panels ($1,200) and a kitchen package ($280) add to the list price. Once you add in your own gear the camper could turn into a seriously heavy trailer that might only be suitable for experienced cyclists or those traveling in flat areas.

 

Bike campers are an intriguing proposition, but the price and weight of the Wide Path may depress sales. One possible solution is to buy an electric assist bike, but it takes away from the romanticism of a bike-camping trip.

 

Find out more on the Wide Path website and see if the camper suits your needs.
