My father in Canada is a diehard ultra-light trailer fan and has been restoring these little guys since I can remember.  A few years back I invented a popular electronic accessory called the iBallz™ ( My father wanted to help me with my business but couldn’t offer much more than moral support. One day he asked if I would like to use one of his retro Boler trailers for a convention to transport product and advertising.  He painted it with our signature teal blue color and shipped it down to California. As soon as it rolled off the truck I was in love. The Boler was quickly adopted as our company mascot and made our brand immediately recognizable.  People lined up to see our products and to check out the “cool lil trailer.”  I soon started taking the trailer out on weekends, to places all around California, venturing out, and getting up close to parts of the state I never knew existed.  The trailer made it so easy to get up and go and enjoy the world around me.  I was amazed with how easy the trailer was to tow without breaking the bank in gas mileage. I’ve been to so many great places where I could just pull up, set up camp, and wake up to the most amazing sunrises I’ve ever seen.  I felt like I was reliving a time forgotten.  As my love affair grew with the little trailer I started restoring other ultra-lights and soon found myself with a driveway full of these quirky fiberglass campers. “The Happier Camper” is the result of this, a start-up venture featuring new and restored vintage ultra-light trailers with an emphasis on eco-friendly design.  Please visit us to see these unique mini campers at our lot in the Los Angeles area or feel free to contact us with any questions or comments.

Sincerely, Derek
