Happier Camper HC1 anyone?

Does anyone have a Happier Camper HC1? They are the new kids on the block when it comes to lightweight trailers. We are considering buying one and would love to hear pros/cons about them from an owner or someone who has camped in them.

Ask the sellers if they have their own Owner's Group.

Planning a trip to San Francisco? Outdoorsy rents them, maybe other locations:

The Hc1 comes in a standard size with 13 inch tires and an off-road version with raised suspension and 15 inch rim and tires . The Samuel Adams rolling bar trailers were equipped with 6 bolt axle to support the massive draft beer kegs and housing .

note that HC's are all electric trailers, without showers or toilets.

Check out the Happier Camper website. Their original location in Southern California rents them. They have a new showroom in Mill Valley just north of San Francisco. They also have many more showrooms nationwide and in Japan!

a dry/composting porta-potty, and a kitchenette module with a 5G water tank + 5G grey tank. yeesh. the only stoves I see on their site are portable butane/propane camp stoves. I see nothing about a water heater or shower option, but I suppose you could always use a sunshower.

I hope you realize we are talking about a 13 ft trailer not a 21 ft as you have , but if you want a shower that bad you could have HC make the intire trailer a shower as it has a all fg floor with a drain in it but Iíd much rather have the full queen sized bed and the ability to not have a permanent kitchen in the way and rarely use it.

I could see towing an HC behind my Rubicon for a night or two out in the forest. Minimal conveniences, out of the rain, and definitely not on the ground, which I have sworn off of. I've camped many times with much less. There's something about simplicity that is so much fun.

But I wouldn't want to travel across the country for a month at a time in one. For that, we have a wonderful cabin on wheels called an Oliver.

We have a friend with an HC and she loves it. Very easy to tow, goes to Rallys and has no problems.
