    It's probably works OK in Denmark....no hills there. A head wind and a hill would be killer!

    $3800 (or so) for the base model? Eep.

    And yes, I'd not be wanting to tow that anyplace that was not absolutely flat.

    The sample picture looks like he's pulling it with an electric bike. If you can afford that much for a tiny camper, I guess you can afford a bunch more for an electric bike with enough range to get to a campsite...

    100lbs is alot of weight to drag around. I see no purpose for this given the weight. Those are likely to travel by bike and camp will not want to drag this much weight around. I myself have bike camped where took all my supples and sleeping kit on my bike with me. Never have I wanted an RV. In fact don't use a tent since I want to keep the weight down.

    I can't imagine dragging that behind me. Our two-seat kid trailer felt like pulling a parachute!

    Not my style for sure, can you imagine pulling this with head wind on a bicycle ? Probably do ok on flat ground with a tail wind for a short distance :) maybe behind a moped or small motorcycle.
