Thought I'd give it it's own thread so we can all say what we think about the idea of side storage and the practicalities of it.

Video of a camplet one being used. They weigh 500kG fully loaded and 250 or 275kG empty so Dart weight.

With one wheel on the ground you are only lifting half of it and less if the front is on the ground as well.

There is another type of frame that I was thinking of in two pieces with wheels on each corner.


If that camplet weighs 500Kg then I have three testicles. Well I'd look that way after lifting it. Given my mate a hand with lifting the odd Hot Tub and even with sub 400Kg ones where you have 7' of leverage you get the first 300 or so of lift done with an inflatable bag.

No they are 250kg or 275kg empty, depending on model but max load is 500kg. I would hope you wold unlod it first.

Probably find Camplets are what they say they are but Dandies are twice as heavy as they say.

For us side storage isn't really an option as we don't empty it often ...... it would be ideal to be able to turn it onto it's side easily though for when we want to do any maintenance underneath rather than have to get on the floor.
