Midget Bushtrekka Bicycle Camper Trailer by Kamp-Rite

The Bushtrekka Bicycle Camper Trailer is a nice addition for your outdoors biking gear. While a Topeak Journey Trailer and a Gogo Elite or a Blue Ridge Hammock tent can help you nicely camp outdoors, the BushTrekka was specifically designed for your long bike trips and combines a 120 liters volume storage with an off the ground sleeping tent to allow you to easily camp when the night comes.

The trailer features a pivoting wheel set and alloy wheels to increase your riding comfort on most terrains, safety reflectors and tape for nighttime visibility, lightweight aluminum frame to decrease the overall volume and a flat storage for the rest of your gear and provisions. The tent measures 90″ L x 32″ W x 40″ H (that’s 2200mm L x 810mm W x 1000mm H), is water resistant and mounts/unfolds in seconds with minimal effort.

Would you consider a such all-in-one solution for your long biking trips or would you stick to more classic individual items that can also be used on their own? Let me know in the comments…
