Light, low and compact, and not necessarily requiring a 4WD to tow, these are typically a box trailer, with the bed on top, a slide-out kitchen within the trailer body, and a tent that folds off to one side. They have the benefit of a larger tent with more storage.
These generally are a trailer with a lid that folds to become a solid flat floor under the living space, keeping it off the ground and out of the dirt. Being quick and easy to set up and pack away, they are popular with couples and small families.
