    This is Paul Elkins original idea shared on YouTube. This clown stole his idea…and is trying to make money for someone else’s idea…what a douchebag

    I like the concept of these, cheap comfortable shelter. I think this is something that could very well help with homelessness, which is only getting worse. They are fantastic.

    Thanks, where do I get materials to attach wheels to frame?

    Don´t want to a critic, but red is a color that you should use with caution. If you check tent-makers, they rarely use red without an innertelt that has another color. And they mostly use yellow/orange mix. It has to do with the effect colors have on ourselves. And how it affects our moods. Now that being said, with projects like this you obviously use what you have in store. And besides that, consider the color if you have the options. It´s the least important thing! This was a great build, execution and idea, I got some good ideas from it, so thank you Derrick!

    great wee thing that, well done

    Nice, a friend built one about as long, maybe a foot longer only with wooden side boards. The top part connected with 4 corner adjustable steal post. Once he attached the top , he had about 6.5 feet of standing clearance with a tarp like Velcro or snap button connection to the bottom part. But it was nice to be able to stand up without having to step out of it. Last I heard, he was trying to get it engineered for solar panel off grid camping. Once he does, it should be an incredible shelter for camping. Nice project. Always good to see the ingenuity put into this type of project.

    I could see this closing in on itself, like bringing the back into the front while traveling so it could be less overall size. great build.



  14. Prince Yoshii on July 29, 2019 at 1:50 am

    I will pay someone a lot of money to build one of these for me



  15. Arahorn on July 29, 2019 at 1:52 am

    I think you can take me for a ride while I sleep in the back, how about that? I’ll go to sleep in the back while you ride me to our destination camp site. Excellent.

    I like this camper trailer very well. Especially because it is made of a lot of plastic and is therefore not heavy. In Germany, no one is allowed to camping with tents in nature, it is forbidden. You have to go to a campsite and pay, per tent and per person. And not a little. But such a "rolling trailer" can stand everywhere. Away from the road somewhere or in a parking lot. And that is very good. I am looking forward to your next little pop-up camper you want to build. And by the way … these photos are sufficient. I think who needs an explanation video is not capable and probably technically untalented to build such a camper anyway. Greetings from Bavaria in Germany.



  18. j spades on July 29, 2019 at 1:54 am

    Great design, attempting a. Us myself. Two questions, though – One, where to buy the coroplast, and two, what did you use for the mattress? Thanks!



  19. Maria Lopes on July 29, 2019 at 1:54 am

    I LOVE THIS CAMPER !!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️



  20. blockydrums on July 29, 2019 at 1:56 am

  21. Karina Godoy on July 29, 2019 at 1:57 am

  24. cosgrove notts on July 29, 2019 at 1:59 am

    It’s very red



  25. Danny Fubar on July 29, 2019 at 1:59 am

    Outstanding, excellent job! I’m outlining my own custom desert bike trailer, lots of great ideas on the Tuby! 🙂



  26. Charles R Hatton on July 29, 2019 at 1:59 am

    I want a trailer like that, that would hold the cargo, I got a hub tent, generator, gas stove, mini tv, computer, that would fit nicely in something that size. Get to where I want to camp, pull everything out, pull the bike in the tent, and camp. Can’t find the right sized trailer on any website, grrr.



  27. Kyle Wilson on July 29, 2019 at 2:01 am

    better put a lock on the inside of the door or somebody can come inside while you sleep an take ya ass!!



  28. Velimir Rodic on July 29, 2019 at 2:03 am

    the cuts in the clip are really aggressive



  29. middleclassic on July 29, 2019 at 2:05 am

    Great job! The only thing I know I would change would be from red to just about any other color. Like white or a light green or … just something soothing other than pretty much fire engine red. But I do not doubt that red was what was probably available so it was used. Yes No? Oh yes, that and also what looked like particle board. If that was particle board, that stuff sucks up moisture like cuh-razy! If so, a type of wood that is sturdy and much more moisture resistant would be without a doubt a better choice. I know many types things like this are built on the cheap. But there are times where it really does pay to do it right, or not at all. Which is my motto.



  30. Anonymous 1 on July 29, 2019 at 2:05 am

    I want to make one to pull behind my quad



  31. Critter Lex on July 29, 2019 at 2:07 am

    Can you do this without power tools? Thank you!



  32. Santos Mara on July 29, 2019 at 2:08 am

    Une très bonne leçons de vie pour moi,,,,,,,,,, merci

    veryyyy nice



  36. StandsWithABeer on July 29, 2019 at 2:20 am

    would have liked to have seen this as a video instead of a slide show; nothing gets explained. Thumbs down, dude. 🙁



  37. James Edwards on July 29, 2019 at 2:24 am

    This idea has inspired me recently . I am homeless and this would definitely give a homeless person a better chance at being comfortable and have a better chance



  38. Kangal Akbash on July 29, 2019 at 2:25 am

    good job! bravo



  39. mercury villager vazquez on July 29, 2019 at 2:25 am

    Pienso que en verano va a tener calor y en invierno frio está muy reducido y delgado.no creo que funcione



  40. Travis Ford on July 29, 2019 at 2:26 am

    I live in Sacramento California USA. How much would you charge me to build me one that will be towed behind a 29 inch mountain bike from Walmart capable of holding a 6 foot tall 295 pound man? That has room for a 2 burner camp stove and storage to put stuff. I’m currently homeless. Please let me know.



  41. Jorge Reyes on July 29, 2019 at 2:26 am

    Beautiful caravan my friend great job !



  42. Ebrar oyuncak Toys on July 29, 2019 at 2:28 am

    👍👍



  43. Bradley Shimels on July 29, 2019 at 2:31 am

    You can use a thinner piece of plywood for the main floor board. To save weight. As long as you use 1by1 type reinforcing cross pieces on the frame. Thank you.



  44. bla blah on July 29, 2019 at 2:31 am

    This bicycle camper thing seems to be misleading. I think bicycle campers are good for middle class folks who are bored with life on the grid and would just like to safely experiment with nomadic lifestyle at their convenience and leisure. Thats all cute and Hunky Dorey for privileged daydreamer. True Nomads know that it is illegal to live off the grid, and that bicycle campers are in no way ideal for Nomadic life.
    The thought is nice.. the application is pretty unrealistic for anything other than the non-nomadic, day dreamy, privileged folk curious to experiment with Nomadic concepts



  45. kids place on channel 9 on July 29, 2019 at 2:32 am

    Camp over in hunts point with that setup.



  46. Miles Latham on July 29, 2019 at 2:32 am

    Wow what a fucking turd



  47. John Emerick on July 29, 2019 at 2:32 am

    Omg, this video just made me soo dizzy…



  48. Cess Outdoors on July 29, 2019 at 2:33 am

    Such high tech video yet you took pictures why not a video instead and that musical my favorite.



  49. Justin Barney on July 29, 2019 at 2:33 am

    The issue I’m running into is that I’m 6’4"/250 lbs. and the DIYs I’ve come across only seem to max-out around 200-210 lbs.



  50. Lilbrudda on July 29, 2019 at 2:34 am
