If you have a full-size SUV or truck, there appears to be endless campers that you can easily haul with your vehicle. But those with smaller cars haven’t had as many options. Although, companies like Happier Camper are helping to change that. This brand is known for making tiny travel trailers. But how much will a Happier Camper cost you?
About Happier Camper
Numerous RV guides say that Happier Camper is a standout amongst lightweight travel trailers. This brand has earned praise for its retro-inspired camper designs and simple assembly. Additionally, some reviewers have described Happier Camper as the “Ikea” of campers. The company earned this mention because of its Adaptiv system.
“The pint-sized Happier Camper HC1 offers an ingenious solution for travelers looking to take only the most essential elements of home along for the ride. While the retro-modern shell oozes vintage cool, it’s what’s on the inside that’ll interest most road trippers. “Mike Richard, The Manual Review, 2020
Happier Camper’s Adaptiv system features modular cubes that allow you to customize your travel trailer. You can configure the cubes in various ways to suit your cooking, storage, and sleeping needs. They are easy to move, plus they are durable enough to be placed outside. Happier Camper models also have a honeycomb fiberglass floor that set the foundation for your design configuration. How much you pay depends on the model size you pick and the accessories you add.
Meet the HC1 travel trailer
Happier Camper named its flagship trailer, the HC1, which begins at $29,950. The HC1 is designed to provide utility in a small footprint. Its dry weight is 1100 pounds, so it’s ideal for drivers with smaller vehicles. The HC1 is 13′ long, and its inside height is 6’1″. Each model comes with expansive panoramic windows, a large rear hatch, and wheel fenders.
The standard HC1 keeps things simple, even with its relatively high base price. But if you’d like, you can upgrade this camper with amenities, including a dry flush toilet that’s completely waterless and is battery operated. Other add-ons include a lithium battery upgrade, a road shower package, and a built-in Bluetooth speaker. The good thing is that even if you aren’t ready to spend the extra cash, you can upgrade your camper later.
The available HCT offers even more comfort
For added space and convenience, you’ll want to consider the larger HCT trailer. This option is under 2,500 pounds when loaded. It comes with full kitchenette and bathroom options, plus all-season insulation, hot water, and a heater. The HCT also comes with a solar-ready power system. But unlike the HC1, the HCT’s interior is only semi-modular.
Of course, these additional amenities don’t come cheap. A standard HCT begins at $49,950. However, this model’s compact size and upgrades present numerous possibilities. Happier Camper recommends this option as a mobile office, a retail space, an in-law suite, or even as a tiny long-term home.
