This Trailer Is the TARDIS of Campers

(Video Link)

The Conqueror is much bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside. As this tour video shows, even when you think that you've reached the end, there's always one more option that unfolds. It's got a complete kitchen, a bedroom with a heater, fan, and TV. There's storage space for fishing rods, a hot water heater, and a grill. What impresses me the most are the solar panels, which could be handy for roaming through the wilderness for extended periods of time.

It's got a handful of interesting ideas (I'm not sure if they will work out well in practice, rather than just in demo videos), but mostly it's just a pop-up camper/tent trailer like any other. e.g.

Personally, I would NEVER buy a tent trailer. A traditional, solid travel trailer is just INFINITELY more useful. A tent has no insulation value, flaps around and doesn't entirely stop wind (pretty miserable), no sound-deadening, etc. The tent material decays and cracks and needs to be replaced after a few years. The tents often leak water. Tent trailers have very little cargo room while towing. Absolutely no security against break-ins. The tent is dangerously flammable, making cooking inside much more risky. etc., etc. Probably a million more. Sure, it looks large and impressive on video, but they are really miserable in practice.

I have a tent trailer and -love- it. No doubt the comments above are true but it is easy to tow and possible to store on my small-ish urban parking pad at home.
If you are already a truck person living on acerage, a hard trailer is for you. But for practical living in the city my tent trailer is awesome. And this thing would take it to the
Next level. Major trailer envy.
