Happier Camper with LEGO modular interior furnishings


Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen this cutie? It appears to have a really great build quality but it is not equal to the Olivers. Base price is $14K and the removable and optional modules are sure to add up very fast.

Check out the pictures in their brochures:

All this, yet it can't go off road, despite the pictures, and it only has a one year warranty.... I wonder what MSRP on a loaded version would be?

 

I am not sure why it has both a gaping cargo hatch AND a side door. That seems too much in a trailer this size. How about a combination cargo/ man door in back only...?

 

The contoured solar panel is neat, but it is a poor choice for warm climates since the panel will overheat and can even cause structural roof damage. Solar panels get really hot and need air circulation.

 

I do think that having the option to carry large cargo is a fantastic feature. You would have to be really careful to not scratch up the gelcoat inside.

Base price now is 18900. Plus modules.

 

I've seen it online a number of times in various news feeds. Trying to figure out how they reconnect gas and water, etc, and revert from cargo mode. If it even has water and gas tanks.

 

My guess is, it's a very basic trailer, with outdoor shower? Though I haven't dug that far into it. As I already have a trailer I love, and a truck bed for the ATV...

 

The rear door is a bit of a mystery, and possibly problematic in the long run. They rent them in LA and Windsor.. if anyone wants a closer look.

 

Absolutely love the fender flares, though. And the mid mod  protruding tail lights.  It would , honestly, look great with my stepside Silverado... cute. Love the mooncaps, too. Don't love 14" tires, and probably primitive interior, and no gas? Or am I missing something?

 

Wish them luck. The egg camper did ok with all electric. There's a German camper with a Lego type interior, too. I've seen it several times, as well. I'll see if I can find the name. I love a lot of the German and Australian campers. Tiny, every inch used, sleek.

 

Oh. Maybe that's my description of my own trailer? Yeah.
