Homie car camper

Ever since I read about the Widepath Bicycle camper I've been trying to figure out how to beef it up enough so a Smart Car could pull it. But the company beat me to it.

https://www.widepathcamper.eu/car-camper/

Can't seem to find info on what material the hard shell is made of.

I might have been interested in this in 1992. Little too sparse for my needs now.
What do you think?

Shipping it from Denmark would be interesting.

Looks like it's fiberglass from the photos. Beats a tent for ease of setup and staying dry.

I think I'd prefer the classic teardrop. so, ok, no indoor dinette, big deal... If you gotta cook outside, might as well eat outside too!

I wonder why they feel the need to fold the rear half forward like they do. Seems it would be a lot simpler and aerodynamic by building it to stay in the shape it is in when unfolded. Better airflow, easier to use.

I suspect that since many living quarters and storage areas are smaller in Europe than here, the folding concept would allow more people to be able to store it where they live. I could fit this plus our small car in the space of a single garage.
The XL version has a bed bigger than the one in our Scamp!

Very intriguing, but Donna is right about shipping. She's always right.

Get a tall van, simpler, even used.

It's based on a bicycle camper, so small and lightweight to pull behind a peddler. Click on Campers on the home page.

My dad imported a VW bought in Germany back in '61, and still saved money, so I wouldn't just assume it isn't possible.
