    Sidecar campers...

    I love this Sauer build....

    http://www.sauer-sidecar.de/seitenwagen/falke.html

    I am talking about the falke-enduro hack

    It is about as simple a sidecar camper as you could have. Just a bunk but with a bivey sack when it is nice out and a tarp over it when it is raining....

    Very neat idea for one person, but some of us have anchors along when we go places.

    Re: Sidecar campers...

    Yep, too bad about it being in German but my point was just to point out a really innovative approach to a sidecar that very simply also makes into a bed platform which is something I like.

    Gary, how about the "anchor" having their own rig and bunk...park close together..?

    I have a wife who, although she rides her own bikes, we like to share either the same bed or tent....I am thinking since we already tent...that doesn't have to change when we go together...and since we each have solo tents for when we are on solo rides, I can add this idea and perhaps do a build like the Sauer build on my Ural chassis with the tub removed....just scheming and trying desperately not to pull a whopper of a trailer...also avoid the expense of a whopper trailer. I am 67 and the ground is just not as easy for me to get up and down from...I can do it but a raised platform is better yet...

    Well the problem she ain't tall enough to touch the ground from a short bike, much less be able to make decisions fast enough to ride a bike. I'll just keep dragging along, been dragging for 47 years too old to quit now. Thats why I got her a new Rollahome and it gets me off the ground.

    Yes but a good side car rig can pull my camper, or wonder if a guy could rig a doubledecker bunk rig? Something to mull over in my spare time.
