This almost-retro looking modular camper brings ultra-flexibility to your outdoor life!





While most travel trailers find it hard to have looks and functionality in one package, the Happier Camper has them both with a profound sense of modularity that’s hard to draw parallels with.

Breaking the shackles of mainstream travel trailer design and purposefulness is the Happier Camper HC1 which is one of the most versatile campers on the road thanks to its modular floor and a big hatch. It has an adaptive interior setup called Adaptiv system, comprising of six different components that fix into the floor like LEGO and make the modularity possible. These include bench, kitchenette, table, cushion, floor panel and lid. You can slot the components into place for a wide variety of interior layouts or even use these components as outdoor furniture sitting by the campfire or for outdoor cooking fun. The camper can also be left empty for hauling cargo if needed, which is a good added utility.

Possible configurations could be using the HC1 for camping in a bed and kitchenette setup or a solo kitchen layout for catering. If you desire to take your friends along for a trip, a huge bed setup for up to 5 individuals is also on the menu. Happier Camper has kept the modern-day needs of travelers in mind, hence, there are accessories like built-in USB, AC power sockets, a tablet docking station and Bose sound system to go along with the interiors. The trailer suffices its energy needs for the heated shower, outdoor lighting, and the awning from an 100W solar panel.

The retro-styled (looks like something straight out of the 1960s) camper is made out of fiberglass double shell for light weightiness (1,100 pounds in total), strength and durability in any kind of weather conditions. Being featherweight means, it can be hauled behind electric vehicles too without worrying too much about compromised mileage. The compact size of 13 feet in length and around 7 feet in width means it is ideal for tight urban spaces. On the inside, the trailer gets 42 square feet of walking space and over 6 feet of headroom. Windows on all sides allow plenty of light to come inside and for privacy, the snap-down blinds can be employed.

HC1 reminds me of the old VW Camper Van courtesy of the split color scheme, very contoured edges, and beveled wheel flares and taillights. The price for the base model is $29,950 which is slightly on the higher side but of utility for people who demand modularity!
