Rob Reeve of Denver, Colorado, is redefining what it means to keep it simple in the camper industry. His company Hiker Trailer produces lightweight, affordable teardrop trailers, packing in everything you need to experience the outdoors in an admittedly tiny space. The 4-by-8-foot model starts at $2,895 (most similarly sized campers cost around $15,000) and weighs just 640 pounds, which means you can tow it behind virtually any car. At Overland Expo West, Reeve showed us Sarah Harris's custom 5-by-8 model trailer.
