Ultra light camper trailers

November 26, 2019 — BarryK

Interested in these, for stowing extra gear when on a camping trip. There is a chap on Facebook, lives in Western Australia and owns a Suzuki Jimny 2019 model. As the engine is very small, 1.5 litres, and legal towing limit is only 1300kg, he bought a motorcycle trailer, the Erde 122:

img1 has a nice pod lid, and total weight is just 65kg. Ah, not at all clear from the webpage, but that 65kg is without the plastic lockable top. Found out the top weighs 21kg. This UK site shows there are lots of accessories:

They have another trailer, complete with tent and only 115kg:


Erde trailers are imported from France, so anyone in Europe should be able to acquire them.

Here is another trailer, the Asyon pod, that weighs 100kg (though, their front page states 130kg):


...sold in the Eastern States, from the description, look like local manufacture.

Very interesting!
