Happier Camper
4178 Chevy Chase Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90039
Owner: Derek Michael

It’s been a few years since we began working on the HC1, our first production trailer. This unique trailer is inspired by classic design but packed with modern functionality. Through our rental business we spent years reconditioning vintage trailers and taking note of the features that made them great. By adopting the best parts and adding a few new ideas of our own, we’ve designed and built what we think is a distinct and remarkably useful travel trailer. We’ve come a long way and are thrilled to share the results with you.

This is just the introduction to the HC1. There is much more on the way to share and build with you.

Gary and the crew head to Silver Lake, California to meet up with Derek Michael, the creator of Happier Camper, a company that manufactures ultra-light travel and utility trailers.  Then they head over to San Diego, California to meet up with Sophia Hall, the founder of The Make Good, a curator of local handcrafted products and resale clothing.
