    Slip Stream camper

    Anybody out there ever used one of these? I have a smaller bike and usually travel alone and looking for a lightweight trailer without a lot of fluff.
    Good or bad or other opinions?

    I looked at the specs. It shows a weight of 350lbs. Not really what i would call lightweight.
    It appears to be a clone of the Time out trailer.
    The Bunkhouse Queen is listed at 285lbs.

    Not sure where that info came from but I would hope it is way wrong. My bike is about 625 lbs so I am trying to find the lightest unit I can.

    These were the numbers I saw. I wish I could find one in person to look at before I make a decision to buy. I actually think one of these if loaded improperly will be too much so my intent is to pack light when I go. Looking at those links, I was surprised to see the pictures and then see they were being pulled by Burgmans. Precisely my plan. I've downsized a bit and looking for a trailer I can pull with mine.

    The Roadman is another option if you want a double duty camper/cargo trailer. Lots more work to set up tho, but that's why there are so many choices when it comes to mc campers.. everyone has different priorities.

    There was a guy developing a 'micro' camper for solo users. It was a really cool idea and he was trying to find someone to build them.. but I haven't heard anything about it in quite a while. He was pulling it with an 800CC bike and it only weighed like 100 lbs or something.

    I camped with the IBMC at Helper UT and there were a couple of senior gents towing Slip Streams with Burgman 650 Executive scooters up from DFW. They said they had little troubles towing the trailers which were complete with the side curtains and bed. They come in two versions. With and without the sleeping accommodations. The without is just a standard cargo trailer.





    If you are a tall person the Slip Stream is not that long. Over six feet and you would need to squeeze in there.

    Interesting looking camper. That's pretty much what I want. Small and lightweight. I've never seen anything on that particular one before. No contact info and it is a few months old. The Slipstream will barely be long enough but I can put up with that. I'll fit and if my GF goes, she will have plenty of room. Lightweight is the key thing I am after. The pics of the guys and Burgmans are what I am hoping to do. A little traveling and camping with friends.
