Bike Camper

This is a neat little camper that you tow on the back of a bike.  I don’t quite know the weight of the camper, but I would hate to see this in San Francisco and the hills.   The camper is part of an art exhibit called “in the weeds” by Kevin Cyr.



  1. I love it! But it might be better as a miniature pop-up camper. Less weight, less wind resistance. Still very cool.

  2. Seems very heavy:

    Rather than an additional floor, just sleep on the base of the camper with a waterproof mat and sleeping bag.

    During the day, fold the mat into an outdoor seat.

    Try a collapsible cooler bag for daily perishables.

    Look for ready-to-eat items at the grocery store.

    Rather than shelving or cupboards, hang items on hooks.

    If needed, use a cutting board in your lap.

    Carry a backpack of 3 tops x 3 bottoms = 9 outfits to the laundry mat.

    Try a camping porta potti and shower bag.

    Try a skylight and larger windows for cross-ventilation.

    • Well in that case why not just use a tent? your missing the point…

  3. I love that he’s pulling it with a single speed bike. Now that’s a real man!

  4. Add a pair of electric hub wheels and a solar pannel to charge the batteries.

  5. LOVE it!!!

  6. this is indeed a very cool idea and we are seriously developing something along this line. Be sure to check out our web site at:

    We have two bicycle mini camper designs in the works and we are currently working on trying to raise funds through our IndieGoGo campaign to make the first prototype. Help us out and we can make this dream a reality:

  7. You have teased me with this cute little trailer for a long -long time. I’ve just gotta have the plans.

  8. I am building a 4×8, super light, hope to see these more.

  9. – Oh wow. I just love what you have done with yours! I have around 12 or 13 or so now, altughoh I did just see one the other day that I loved, and I bought my in laws one for Christmas that I would have loved to add to my collection. Unfortunately one of mine did fall of the wall and smash a few years back which was a bit heart breaking. But mine are all boxed up at the moment as we are currently building a new house. My mum & sister & I have been collecting them since he first started making them years ago, and we used to get one for our birthday or Christmas. Its amazing how much more expensive they have become over the years! I think when we first started getting they them they were around NZ$70 and now they are NZ$165 each. And they sell on Ebay for crazy prices for the first editions, so they are really good investments I think besides which I just love them! I also love your grouping, and you have given me a great idea for my front entrance, so thank you for that. My husband and i have had a few discussions about where we would put them up! Great idea about hanging them too. A small tip. instead of just hanging them on a screw. You can get a small length of dowling the same width of the holes on the back of the tiles and then cut small pieces off that fit the holes. If you then screw these to the wall with the screws, you can then sit the tiles to the wall on the hooks if you see what I mean. If that doesn’t make any sense what so ever, I could take a picture for you of my sisters. She has about 20 of them and uses this system and it keeps the tiles quite firm on the wall. And after losing my tile, I’m definitely doing it when I put mine back up.MeganMarch 18, 2012 3:54 am
