The Explorer Boxes are a hybrid of a teardrop trailers and easy to set up tent campers.
Designed and developed by Compact Camping Concepts, LLC, they’re campers that you can easily build yourself.
The company has developed an 85-page set of building plans so that you can build your own tent trailer.
They’re small in size and lightweight so you can tow with just about any vehicle including some motorcycles.
The company likes to call it a Mobile Outdoor Adventure Bedroom. On their site, you’ll find different kinds of roof top tents, changing rooms, ladder extensions, and more so that you can create the perfect camping solution for yourself.
But that’s not it’s only purpose. These compact tent trailers can also haul your bicycles, kayak, and other gear.
Enjoy the pictures below and if you’re interested Scott has included a special offer for you, readers of TinyHouseTalk.com. Just check out the bottom of this post for details.
There’s plenty of storage for all of your stuff underneath and a rooftop tent can be installed on top.
This makes it easy and fast to set up when you arrive at your campsite. The version you see above has an added changing room so you have a place to stand up in.
It also makes it pretty simple to prepare for the road. A lot faster than setting up and putting away a traditional tent.
Pop up side tables make it easy to grill and prepare foods.
Steve offers most of the trailer parts, including lights, hinges, and latches, that you’ll need for your build right on his website.
That actually looks pretty cozy, doesn’t it?
I think it’s a great little camping trailer to own as an alternative to tents or RVs as long as you’ve got the space to store it.

Where would you take your inexpensive “Do It Yourself” tent camper/trailer to first? I’d throw my bike and kayak on there and head to the Keys right now. How about you?
