Iím a single mum hence I needed a advice. I used to have a Conway cruiser with a pull out bed, but fine itís really hard to do on my own. I want to know which trailer tent or folding camper that does have a winding stick that I can erect without having to do them physically. Hope anyone can help?

and the cardinal.both still have pullout beds, but are much lighter as it is only the bed bit and not the whole cabin.

which wouldn't solve the effort of getting the beds out.

There is a version of the Tardis - both about the same size and also a larger one - made by Jayco who were the manufacturers of the Tardis that doesnt actually have any beds that pull out, just the sofa beds inside the unit.

So once the roof is wound up thats it, no beds to slide out etc.

You'd need to be lucky to find one in the UK or you could convert an existing hard top to that configuration.

Most campers can be put up by one person. That doesn't make it an easy job even with gas struts.

The opus has an air version, but very costly new, this may cut down the manual part of setting up/packing away.

Seen them at the NEC and the shell is soon up.

that is the version i am referring to. and yes, i have put one up. beds are a one handed affair and the rest is up in 90 seconds then a bit of moving stuff inside.

it is possible to have one sited and weatherproof in less than 5 mins with one person.



and when ebay lets me sell the kids im having one

I have an Opus Camper. It is certainly possible for one person to do the beds and everything else, but the awning would be a challenge on your own.
They certainly are expensive and there are very few second hand air versions available.
The beds flip over, rather than slide as they are the trailer roof. You do not have to support the weight yourself as they are gas assisted.
