Kompact Kamp Mini Mate Camper
Weight – 260 lbs
Open Dimensions – 90” L x 40” W
Storage Volume – 15 cubic feet
Price – $3,495
The Mini Mate Motorcycle camper is true to its name with its small box structure. However, it provides enough sleeping space for two, room for storage underneath, and plenty of head space when opened.
This is a great option for riders who like the simplicity of a pop-up system and appreciate the sleek look of a fiberglass box and top. The Mini Mate has a rubber torsion suspension system, offering riders a smoother ride, and comes equipped with drop-down stabilization jacks.
The setup of this camper is very simple and can be done in just a few minutes. The tented portion is made of a heavy-duty, water- and UV-resistant canvas, which helps to keep the elements out. Cushions inside the camper can turn into a bench for indoor seating and are used for the bed.
