I am an A level graphics student and I am doing a project on a new and unique camping trailer, does anyone have any suggestions for features to be added to it to make it different/improve from existing trailers? Thanks!



Storage of the trailer when not in use could well be an issue for some who do not have driveways. How about a trailer that closes up concertina fashion from side to side so that it can be wheeled through a typical front garden gate

what about putting a pair of industrial type castors ( Aldi had some in the summer very cheap ) on the trailer and up ending it...

My brenderup 1150s has studs on the back end so you can store it on its end...Would be easy to fit a set of castors ...

Weight / balance may be an issue if you're path is sloping / uneven..

May be worthwhile considering small Erde type trailer ...the one with the tiny wheels..

Looks like an awful lot of roof support tubing or poles. They will all have to fold down into the trailer on top of each other, taking up a lot of room.

Also, the fabric will be folded in many places when down. You may have flexible windows in it which will be weakened if folded too much.

Also need a door position without poled in it.

You need to think about the fabric sometimes being wet when packing away, but if at all possible you want the beds etc inside to remain dry.
