Bicycle-towed caravan due to begin shipping next month
Almost two years have passed since we first saw the Wide Path Camper: a folding, bicycle-towed caravan that sleeps two adults and a child. The design has received a few minor upgrades in the interim and is finally set to roll out of the factory next month.
Last time we caught up with the Wide Path Camper, it measured 99 x 130 cm (39 x 51 in) when being towed, or 99 x 260 cm (39 x 102 in) when folded into position for use. Company boss Mads Johansen told us these dimensions are still about the same for the upcoming production version.
Overall weight has remained around the same too, at 45 kg (99 lb), which is remarkably light for a caravan, but still sure to be tough going when pedalling up a hill. Or in anything but the lightest breeze, for that matter.
The fiberglass body has been swapped for a molded composite. Insulation foam is now installed on the interior and an inertia brake has been added. A slot is installed in the back of the caravan to accommodate a tent or awning when parked up.
The optional solar package has been upgraded to a 47 W model, paired with a battery, that the firm says will be adequate to charge two phones, power a light and fan for up to 12 hours, depending on conditions.
The Wide Path Camper will be available in Europe, US, Canada, Australia, and elsewhere from September, and prices start at €3,500 (roughly US$3,900). Options include a red model, window tinting, a "Lux" package which features a better mattress, and a kitchen package with pots, cups, and pans.
