Towbag

Well, we've seen the cloth roofbag, how about a cloth trailer ?

Caught my eye in the list of new products for next year

Pop n Go knickers anyone ?

My advice is worth no more than the price paid for it

Different, definately different, mind you 200kg payload is quite impressive for a poly bag.By the way I thought you were taking the mickey with the pop n go knickers ...... then I scrolled down the page a bit further 1717.

Dance before the storm and don't look back to where you've been.

If you can keep your head when all around you are losing theirs, you obviously haven't grasped the gravity of the situation.

I don't want it I just need it.

I can see some advantages to the trailer (less so for the knickers).

I'm not permitted to park trailers anywhere on my property (I keep the camper at my parents') and I'm sure there are others without suitable space to park even a small trailer. A lot will come down to cost though.

I think you're right Glen. There's an indication on their site they're thinking of 400+

50 Towbag - The Fold Away Trailer
Towbag is a lightweight, foldable trailer that has been developed specifically for easy storage when not in use, perfect for the camper with limited storage space.

Could this be useful for those with limited space?
Would you get one?
Would you feel secure with your camping gear in one on the motorway?
Is this just a gimmick or the next big thing for campers?

Why not let us know your thoughts.

Cheers Ratty

It would have to be quite a bit cheaper than the duuo trailer for me to be interested.

Wouldn't fancy the camping gear in a plastic bag, you see how a normal trailer bounces on pot holes, speed bumps etc so I feel it needs some kind of "floor" to put my mind at ease but the chassis is a masterpiece. Instead of a poly bag why not light weight alloy panels.

It looks like a super idea - I often struggle to take bags of garden stuff to the dump so would use it for that. It seems to have a light board at the back but as I watched the video I didn't see any signs of the plugs for the lights to go into the towbar sockets. The price will be the main selling point. If it's cheap enough, then they will sell plenty, if too expensive then they won't sell many at all. The other concern is security - if it's really easy to dismantle, then when you have a stop off at the services, you may find it's gone when you get back.

I want one as we don't have anywhere to park a trailer but if the price is to expensive wouldn't be an option.

Can anyone tell me what those storage things are called that you strap onto the boot similar to the way that a bike rack is strapped on??

Not big enough for my camping gear, and I would worry about durability on long trips.
