Because it turns out that while some modest vehicles are prepared to carry a cargo/living module on their hitch receivers, others are not. So Hitch Hotel is reaching out to a broader demographic with its second model, an expandable, two+ person camping trailer designed around smaller, more efficient cars. The new Hitch Hotel Traveler tows down the road as a tiny, versatile trailer and transforms into a cozy wilderness shelter at camp.
The original Hitch Hotel (now called the Classic) was one of the truly unexpected debuts in a 2018 filled with innovative and off-the wall camper designs. At just 240 lb (109 kg), the compact, watertight fiberglass box was designed to make the vehicle camping experience easier and simpler than a trailer and more solid and stable than a tent.
