The Happier Camper History...

My father who lives in Canada is a die-hard ultra light trailer fan and has been restoring these little guys since I can remember. A few years back I invented a popular electronic accessory called iBallz™. My father wanted to help with my business, but couldn't offer much more than moral support. One day he asked if I would like to use one of his retro 60's Boler trailers for a convention to transport product and advertising. He painted it with our signature teal blue color and shipped it out to California. As soon as it rolled off the truck I was in love. The Boler was quickly adopted as our company mascot and made our brand immediately recognizable. Soon people lined up to see our products and to check out the “cool little trailer". I started taking the trailer out on weekends to places all around California. I was venturing out and getting up close to parts of the state I never knew existed. The trailer made it so easy to enjoy nature and the world around me. I was amazed with how easy the trailer was to tow without breaking the bank in gas mileage. I've been to so many great places where I could easily set up camp and wake up to the most amazing sunrises I've ever seen. I felt I was reliving a time forgotten. As my love affair grew with the little trailers, I began restoring other ultra lights and soon found myself with a driveway full of these quirky fiberglass campers. “The Happier Camper" is the result of this, a start-up venture based in Los Angeles, featuring new and restored vintage ultra light trailers with an emphasis on eco-friendly and creative design.
