Camping trailer for an E-bike

Out in nature: The two machine construction students, Mara Fischbach and Benjamin Oldenburg from the Stralsund technical college conceived, designed and built a 1 man camping trailer as part of a project. It is based on renewable energy and guarantees a self-sufficient energy supply.
The camping trailer fulfills several requirements. It is conceived for one person, it can be folded out and folded closed, it has a self-opening tent and lots of space for luggage. Additionally, the trailer has a solar panel that supplies the complete energy requirements of the E-bike and the nightly energy requirements of the cyclist.
After calculating the rigidity and deflection, the team began with the construction. First they sawed aluminium profiles to length and welded them together to form a frame. A base plate made from fibreglass reinforced plastic was then cut to size and glued in place. Now the other parts could be mounted.

To open and close the lid the students used hinges from norelem, to attain access to the luggage compartment.

The gas spring from norelem was mounted using the angle joint onto the trailer to ease the opening and closing of the lid.

The team used sailcloth for the side walls to reduce weight, and also to ensure that no water could seep into the luggage compartment. So that they could absorb energy when the trailer is folded out, the solar panels are also fitted with hinges. Holes in the baseplate for the tent rods allow the tent to be erected on the trailer.
