20-something small, portable campers for backwoods living

•, By C.C. Weiss
 Perhaps it's just that we've been paying closer attention to the segment lately, but we've seen a surge of innovative, small camper hardware over the past few years. From utility trailer build-ups like the Teal panel kit, to car conversion "campers in boxes" like the SwissRoomBox, to more permanent van and Jeep conversions, these small campers let you escape in your everyday vehicle without the bulk and cost of larger motorhomes and RVs. Our recent trip to the Dusseldorf Caravan Salon revealed that there are dozens upon dozens of small camper designs to choose from.
Easily the largest category of small campers in the collection is hitch trailers, which come in every size, shape and style. Some of them are designed to tackle the rigors of off-roading, but most are simple asphalt nomads. If we were pressed to pick a favorite from the many that we saw, it'd have to be the tiny, stylish Pino Pi2010.
