The HC1, Happier Camper new trailer

Has this been covered in another thread? Has anyone else been following the progress?

It looks to be well done and functional. Looking forward to seeing the modular and customizable interior.

Yeah, that's a teaser- I'm always interested in anything new and am looking forward to seeing it. It looks a little too retro for my taste but who knows?

Yes mark that is the new camper being built by derek of happier camper. It is now in the mold stage and we hope to have the first one ready by mid to late summer. As some of you know Derek is the one who had two of his trailers stollen about a year and a half ago.shortly after that he decided that the demand for these little trailers was huge so we decided to build our own .the new hc1 named after hapier camper will be a 13 foot trailer similar to a boler or scamp but with some major differences and innovations. Renting out the original bolers and scamps among other trailers we own we have gotten a lot of input on what people like about these trailer and what they dislike there will be a lot of information forthcoming in the next few weeks and some you can see at happier camper . com. Some of the new features on the hc1 which might just look cosmetic but are actually functuall are the side wheel skirt which is not just for the retro look but are part of the mold and will give the bed 6more inches of length and will keep the bed more square although you won't notice from the out side. Another feature you will notice on first glance is the rear hatch that will open to open to give these trailers much more use as the interior will be completely removable . The plan is to have the hc1 completely versatlle and to meet many different needs as not everyone camps the same way. I will post more information on the progress and will post pictures in the coming weeks of the build as I know many of you will expect it. Thank you.

It's always exciting to see some new innovations being added to the lovable eggs. Since the interior is changeable, I hope you are making the shells more rigid to compensate for the potential lack of interior stiffening elements.

Yes mike theire will be a inner and outer shell as we'll as the latest Fiberglas stiffening techniques . The trolley roof will also be raised to make it stiffer.

Any new info?? This is the last weekend of Summer. I want to poke around inside!! At least virtually with a photo tour?? My husband is more interested in a new trailer and I want a vintage one I can decorate all I want. This new trailer seems to be the way for us to go. I am curious as to how the modular interior is going to work too. Thanks

Thanks Stephanie for your interest in the hc1 I have just returned from las Angela's was there for three weeks to help Derek with the new trailer . Our original goal was to have the first prototype ready for late summer .the plug build and mould build went very well and it was looking pretty good to have it ready for early fall. But like a lot of projects of this scale and a lot of different innovations we are trying to incorporate in to the new trailer we have fallen a bit behind schedule . We are still hoping to have the first prototypes ready in the fall.for some reason building and keeping something simple can be very complicated

Any updates on the HC1?

I have been following along and the latest word was a prototype by the end of January. I hope to see this soon. I have been searching for a used trailer but would love to see this one first.

Donald thank you for your interest in the new HC1 the progress on the HC1 has been slow but steady , for a 13 foot trailer it probably has more separate moulds than any other we are at 20 + separate moulds . All parts have been pulled and at this moment are being fused together . The timelines for completion change day by day but baring any further delays we should have the first trailer together and ready for photos within the next few weeks.

Breaking news on the HC1!! After an exhausting week attempting to get the new trailer assembled for Modernism Week in Palm Springs, we have managed to pull off a small miracle, and will have a prototype ready for viewing. While there are some finishing touches needed before the trailer is market-ready, the look and functionality of the HC1 will be on full display for anyone in the Palm Springs area to come check out.
We will also be doing a photo shoot in Joshua Tree National Park and will have photos of our flagship trailer available in the coming days.
