Looks pretty neat. I think it would work great behind my MINI Cooper. However, with the fairly large frontal and side areas I'm thinking it's gona kill your fuel mileage and I'd be a little concerned about how the rig would handle in cross wind. Riding in a healthy cross wind could prove to be quite exciting!

Re: pico light camper

I too have been looking for someone who has actually designed this but can't discover one anywhere on the web. You may be the first! I like the plans because it looks like it will outcome in a really awesome light-weight item. I believed about trying to develop it but I have no abilities in these places and would have to sub agreement everything out.

Re: pico light camper

I think I'd beef up the tongue a little more by welding some vertical bracing to that piece up front.
