Build a Camper to Tow Behind a Bike: Here’s How

Check out this tutorial for an ultra-lightweight camper hitched to a bike. You might be tempted to build one yourself.

YouTuber Drew Builds Stuff shows off his fabrication skills in a new video about a camper towable by bike. He ultimately builds a pull-behind camper that weighs 120 pounds. It still takes work to tow that with a bike, but, as Drew points out, it also doesn’t cost big bucks.

YouTube might be overflowing with DIY tutorials, but this one had us hooked. And judging by the 3.3 million views the video has racked up in just over 2 months, we’re not the only ones stoked to try out the build.

Ron Swanson would be proud.
