It can be difficult to know exactly which trailer model and floor plan will work best for you and your family until you’ve spent some time―and money―in a variety of camping experiences.
Los Angeles, California-based Happier Camper offers a customizable interior with flexibility that few other camping trailers can match.
Retro styling with modern-day components is a great foundation to start with, but adding on a modular interior takes this travel trailer to the next level.
With its modular set-up, retro-inspired design, light weight, solar panels, and enough room to sleep five, the Happier Camper HC1 will make lots of campers delighted. Ecstatic! Overjoyed! All of the above!
Happier Camper offers ample functionality and personality, combining a highly versatile modular interior with a rather eye-catching vintage look.
The retro-inspired HC1fiberglass trailer design incorporates an “Adaptiv” interior that enables you to switch and swap modules into a variety of configurations, so if the original floor plan doesn’t prove functional or comfortable, you can rearrange the bench, kitchenette, table, cushions, and other modules into something more suitable and slot them into place on a Lego-like floor. Or you can clear the interior out completely, creating a cargo hauler.
The modular floor of the HC1 is made of 1.5-inch thick honeycomb fiberglass. It’s super strong yet incredibly light. Grooves are embedded in the floor to hold the “Adaptiv” cube components in place—just like Lego. The floor panels have additional embedded features like table bases, frame-mounted D-Ring tie-downs, and a front drain to easily hose down the floor for quick and convenient cleanups.
The “Adaptiv” interior features six base components―a bench, kitchenette, table, cushion, floor panel, and lid. The components are slotted into place to create a variety of interior layouts, or can be used as outdoor furniture.
The large rear hatch, available load ramp, and light weight only improve upon the trailer’s user-friendly demeanor.
Weighing in at just 1,100 pounds, the MC1 can be towed by a wide variety of cars and helps to minimize additional fuel usage. Subaru drivers, rejoice!
To keep the weight down, the shell is made of fiberglass, as is the modular furniture.
Other accessories include a Bose sound system, built-in USB and AC power sockets, and a tablet docking station.
The HC1 also features a 100 W solar panel for generating power, a heated shower, an awning, and optional outdoor lighting.
At 13 feet long and just under 7 feet wide, the HC1 will fit into a standard single parking space. There is just over 6 feet of headroom inside the trailer and 42 square feet of walkable floor space. Access to the HC1 is via a side door or a large hatch at the rear. Windows on each side allow in ample light, while snap-down blinds offer privacy.
The HC1, which is reminiscent of the old VW Camper Van with its half-and-half color scheme, rounded edges and beveled wheel flares and taillights, has been designed over the course of five years.
The base model costs $13,950, and there are plans to roll-out of the HC1 to Europe and Asia later in the year.

The HC1 is the result of five years of careful design. An Adaptiv™ interior comes standard along with features like a huge rear hatch, wide entry door, classic fenders, honeycomb fiberglass floor, and large panoramic windows.

Take time to listen to the voices of the earth and what they mean…the majestic voice of thunder, the winds, the sound of flowing streams. And the voices of living things: the dawn chorus of the birds, the insects that play little fiddles in the grass.
