Tail Feather Camper - 5’x8’
The Tail Feather Camper is a lightweight, modular shell that will adapt to many small utility trailers. Since the unit is extremely lightweight, it can be towed by many smaller vehicles. The shape of the camper provides a surprising amount of interior usable space as well as low wind resistance when traveling. A simple screwdriver is all that is required for assembly. The camper can be removed and function as a semi-permanent shelter, or disassembled and neatly stored away when not in use. Cabinets and benches collapse flat to save space when stored. Furnishing options include a 3-shelf wardrobe, counter with storage shelf, counter sink with water pump and tanks, and a dinette that converts to a bed that easily sleeps two.
Tail Feather Camper - Extension Kit
The Extension Kit increases the length of the Tail Feather Camper by 1 panel. It includes 2 wall panels and a roof extension with an additional 14" vent.
Our panels are rotationally molded from polyethylene, which is known for being highly puncture resistant, very robust, and UV resistant,. We use linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), as we have found it to have the right mixture of strength and flexibility to guarantee the panels will always fit together and provide a strong, durable shelter for many years. The panels are foam-filled to add strength and insulation. To assemble the camper, the panels are connected at the top, middle, and bottom with interlocking tabs using simple screws. A water tight edge gasket provides a seal between the panels. Each panel has a sturdy tie down ring on both the inside and outside. There are threaded inserts on the interior wall of each panel, making it a snap to install furnishings. When not in use, the panels nest together for compact storage or shipping.
Panel Dimensions: 60" x 21" x 2-3" walls
Weight: 21 lbs.
The door frame is made of lightweight aluminum tubing and replaces any two wall panels on the Tail Feather Camper. The lightweight, sturdy door is installed on lift-off hinges, making it easy to transport and handle. All the surfaces on the door assembly are UV-treated and backed with foam for insulation.
Made from shatterproof acrylic that will not yellow with age, the swing-out window is operated by a locking push handle. A replaceable screen and a simple push-in curtain rod are supplied with each window panel.
