    Island Plastics - Hitch Hiker

    I've had an interesting email from someone who is looking for an Island Plastics Hitch Hiker designed by Barry Stimpson, I had never heard of it, so I did a google search and found this.

              Brilliant - wonder how it actually fitted onto the car? how about insurance? Would it count as a trailer.. a roof box...????

                  I never saw one, but do 'just' remember coverage of it..... I think it attached by towbar and roof fittings so was very detatchable, an MOT inspector would never have to see it! I bet the fold out panels and floor mean't it was drafty and cold.
                  Looked smart and futuristic then, but imho one of those ideas much better in concept than reality! Wonder how many were made? Do like loads of Barry Stimsons ideas, the romahome concept his best!

                    These types of "clip on" camper attachments are quite popular in mainland europe so perhaps not such a crazy idea really.

                      a lot of Stimpson`s ideas never got beyond the paste board or a one off,this may be one of them.
                      Several types of this camper shell available,not all detachable,we have had a few on this site.
