If Fuel gets too costly there’s always the Camper Bike

| Updated Oct 16, 2012

Gas and diesel prices are a drag allright and RV trips cost more and more. But if you don't mind downsizing, there's always the Camper Bike.

Designed and built by artist Kevin Cyr , the camper bike was made from scrap metal, painted and inspired from a series of his paintings and drawings.

If Fuel gets too costly there's always the Camper Bike 1Cyr got the idea for the Camper Bike while on a trip to Beijing. He calls it  “an amalgamation of a Chinese 3-wheeled flatbed bike with an American cabover style camper.”

While he did build a functioning model, it doesn't seem to be in production.

But, hey, the way fuel prices keep increasing, who knows?

He also has designed a Camper Cart, a camper built into a shopping cart.

Based in Boston, Cyr's painting and interest features RVs, delivery vans, ice cream trucks, beat up old trucks and motorcycles.

I am a competitive cyclist and triathelete and will be traveling almost all season next year. I am so glad I found your blog. While I think the bike camper is nice, I think it would be pretty tough on the uphills. I have been reading all the posts here and I think a Roadtrek would fit my needs perfectly. Most of the time, I would be traveling alone. The 210 Popular seems like it would fit my needs perfectly. Thank you Mike for all you do. You and your readers are an inspiration. I’m sure I’ll have lots of questions as I get closer to buying. I live in South Bend, IN.

Stick with your plans to get a new E-Trek, Mike. This is cute but your readers are counting on you taking that new E-Trek out into the woods and wilds 🙂
