For me the effort starts after the erection.

Talking sidecar camper

i saw in an old Welnecks cycle trader, a fella living in a large bubble topped side hack (of unknown brand) fixed to a yamaha venture. the hack was almost as big as the bike. looked like fun. im shure it would be easy to turn a watsonians 3 or 4 seater into a camper with no problem.

i too have the desire to camp in my hack. sounds like fun

camper

I am sourcing a hitch for my Ural Gear Up so I can tow my Westson Roadster tent camper, very similar to what you have pictured.

Have taken it all over eastern north america, from James Bay to the maritime and down east coast, including Meat Cove, Nova Scotia memorable for the views of the ocean and the road to it!

I used to pull it with a K100, weight was no problem and swivel coupling made it safe.

Ten years old and still in great shape, actually used it last night to have a "camp out" night with my 3 year old grandson in the front yard (Mommy isn't ready to completely let go, maybe next year), I had forgotten how comfortable and roomy it is.l

With Ural it should be good for +90 kph.

My suggestion is find a used motorcycle pop up camper and tow.

I looked at the camping "pod" idea and decided against for the reasons below. Would anyone care to comment on:

1. How do you deal with slopes? The logical back in/ride out approach means having your feet above your head, or your head in the nose of the pod which makes it the wrong shape. (Assuming no reverse gear).

2. What do you do with your wet kit? If it's raining you go in the pod, but where does your riding gear go? If the kit goes outside, doesn't the inside of the pod get wet when you ride off?

3. My Kyham tent goes up in about five minutes. Don't all these campers take just as long to get up but contain complex and heavy hinges and joints?
