True Adventure--Living in a Motorcycle Pop-Up Trailer

  • Published on Jun 21, 2019
  • Today we have a real treat--we meet Kevin who is living full-time on a motorcycle with a pop-up trailer he tows behind it. You'd think that it must be a teeny-tiny camped space, but as you'll see when we go inside, it is surprisingly large and has plenty of room for comfortable living!
    The motorcycle is a 2012 Yamaha Super Tenere that is a dual-sport model which means it does reasonably well on dirt roads and in the backcountry, opening up a huge amount for exploring and solitude in gorgeous country. It is Adventure Riding at it's very best.
    I must admit to being very jealous of Kevin and his setup because it is about the ultimate in freedom and adventurous living! As a young man I owned two different long-distance touring motorcycles and rode one of them up the Alaska Highway from Eureka, California to Anchorage, Alaska in the early 80s long before the Alaska Highway was paved. It was a very long, cold ride and I ran into construction with extremely muddy roads and even some snow, but I loved every second of it and look back on it as one of the best experiences of my life!

    I would really like to find one for myself. I am buying another bike soon and would like to have a tent trailer to pull behind my road glide. I am looking to become semi-nomadic very soon.

    I ride a KTM 1190r and get no less than 42mpg loaded. Something is wrong with that ST if he is only getting 35 unloaded. Or that trailer is waay heavier than 450lbs. humm..

    I just discovered this channel a month ago. My whole life I've dreamed of being outdoors and getting away from 50 hours of work, traffic, and rent. This spoke to me enough to give me that push. Unfortunately, summer is almost over so i may have to wait till next spring but im commited an Cant wait to escape societal pressures to be something im not.

    I tow a Harbor Freight trailer with my 900 Vulcan and as one of the few female riders who trailer I get a lot of lookie-loos lol. We looked for a long time for a hitch for my bike and finally found one in Canada thanks to a TVclip video. I love pulling my trailer with all our camping gear and have no problem pulling it with my m/c and have also pulled it with my Nissan Versa from NC to CA and back.

    I don't know if I'd try to pull that with a Corrola given that the one I was riding in seized up and left us on the side of the road. An '08 with 64k on it at the time...
    Couldn't give me a Toyota now.

    Wow! What a super light weight trailer/camper!!! Looks like it would be a perfect fit for a small SUV, especially since it would probably only decrease the MPG by a few... Now I've got more research to do! Thanks and safe camping/touring to ALL!
