There’s no dispute that travel trailers are gaining popularity among those looking to get off the grid
and use fewer natural resources, especially while enjoying activities
such as camping and road tripping. At 760 pounds and just over 12 feet
in length, the Polydrop trailer is an impressive option for your next
adventure. Created by architectural designer Kyung-Hyun Lew, this travel
trailer has a lightweight frame and sleeps two people comfortably. For
the minimalist traveler, it has pretty much all the essentials.
The 2017 prototype was so lightweight that the designer was able to
travel for an entire year with the personal trailer hitched to a small
4-cylinder car. The attention gained from Lew’s initial 2017 trip
influenced the newer 2019 version with improved parts.
Inside the wooden cabin bolted to the aluminum frame, there is a
three-quarter-sized mattress, three sections of storage cubbies, two USB
outlets and a vented roof. The interior is lit with recessed LED lighting
and thick insulation protects inhabitants from all sorts of weather
while saving energy. Heating (controlled by a thermostat), lighting and
the electronic system are all powered by a solar panel.
There is also a kitchenette with cabinets for electric hookups as well as two storage drawers in the rear. Unlike other travel trailers
the Polydrop doesn’t leave much room for the kitchen space, but the
makers insisted that it has all the essentials for a camping trip at a
site with separate facilities, like restrooms and benches, available.
