The lightest ones are even below 1000lbs, but due to their size-limitations, they may not answer needs of many RV-ers.
The next group of travel trailers with weight ranging from1000 to 2000lbs, thanks to ingenuousness of engineers and designers opens “new horizons” for nature aficionados.
Thanks to larger available space, they can provide almost “home away from home” environment, offer comfort we used to and still guarantee the “fuel economy”.
Amazingly and for many surprisingly, these modern “technological marvels” may have amenities we largely believe are available only in big, luxurious campers. Well, time changed; today you may have “all that” in “lighter” version. And the real bonus is that you to use typical family car to tow your “baby” behind!

Mink 2.0 Camper - Nordic Concept and Design
The "Nordic Team" transformed the traditional “square-edged” teardrop’s shell into a much softer, smooth-edged, rounded shape, somehow naturally blending with works of nature so visible in Iceland. The captivating exterior is only part of the overall design goal. Equally important was to make this traditionally small camper purposeful, relaxing, and visually spacious. However, probably the most difficult task was to offer protection from Icelandic rainy, windy, and cold weather, while at the same time offering continuous visual contact with the surrounding nature.
The frameless Solid Shell Structure™ is made from 1.2” thick Injection Molded ABS plastic lined with a 0.75” thick layer of Armaflex insulation (known for high R-value). As expected from an off-road teardrop, it seats on 17” aluminum wheels with AT225/55/R17 tires and has 12” of ground clearance.....
