We just got back from a photo-shoot last night of the first production model of the HC1 in Mojave Sage
The color is great.
We took them both to the Sequoias national park and spent a few nights in the HC1s. Its a lot colder and windy up there at 8k feet, so we got to give them a good test. The HC1 pulls very nicely with the aerodynamic wheel fenders pulling it to the ground and the wide wheel base. We are including Lipert torsion axle's and electronic breaks as standard so its a really easy pull. With the little propane
Mr heater the trailer stayed nice and warm and i dint get any condensation on the insulated double hull. Camping was great and comfortable, the shady boy awning
provided good protection from the sun and the modular cubes outside work as planned.
I don't have any professional photos for you yet, they will be posted next week, along with some more videos. We will also be updating the website to the new photos and sending a email out to our mailing list. We have been waiting to send out a mail as there are a few big pieces we wanted to have shots of (the awning
, fiberglass refinements, door handles etc).
I shot these on my phone camera.. and im defiantly not a photographer..
I brought my motorbike with us and did some real testing of hauling with the HC1. My bike weighs 400Lb+ and it fit perfectly, so did a 10ft kayak. We were also able to fit in enough modular cubes with the bike in there to set it up as a full camper to sleep 3 adults after removing the bike.
We set up the Shady Boy awning
on this one and it works great.
Were not rushing production, we want to get it all just right, we have a lot of people that want to buy the HC1. But we have only accepted 10 pre orders at this time, This will be the first batch. After that were hoping to shorten our build time and make some more awesome trailers.
Donald, was so good to meet you, your trailer is one of the first ones and i think were going to be on schedule, we will let you know if that changes. You layout drawing is a good one, and we have used it like this this weekend, works great. If anyone wants to try a configuration of the HC1 i made a very rudimentary flash application that allows you to drag modular components onto the floor of the HC1 so you can get a feel for it. The beauty of the HC1 modular interior is that you can change it around to fit you needs, it also means that when we have new or upgraded components its a snap for you up put them in. So far we are releasing a basic set of components, but i am working on a few more ( closet component, shower component, extended kitchen).
You can find the beta of the "HC1 configurator" at the bottom of this page Adaptiv™ | Happier Camper
I built it in flash, and its buggy and will only work on a desktop computer, not a iPhone or iPad. Sorry if it doesn't work for you, my programing skills are limited and i've been spending most of my time making trailers, but i think it helps people understand the Adaptiv system.
As for price, we have just had a major increase in the cost of our fiberglass.. We also decided to add a few more great options into the Base price of the HC1, so we are starting at $15,950. I know its up there, but i feel you get what you pay for and we are keeping it very competitive in comparison to other standard FG trailers.
As were still in the beginning of this thing, costs are fluctuating, im expecting a lot of things to go down in price in production and a few going up. An example of the volatility of this market right now is Hehr windows
just raised its prices to all of their customers between 30 - 300%. If you ordered a HC1 already and are in the first 10, your price is locked in, and if there is savings we will pass it on.
Because of the modular interior and the ability of the trailer being a Hauler we are able to register our HC1s with permanent plates.
