The B-Turtle’s revolutionary design combines the living space of a caravan with the functionality of a trailer for easy touring and bicycle transportation. Weighing only 30 kg, it offers a comfortable sleeping space for two people — with the added benefit of a tray for belongings and an awning for outdoor relaxation.
The B-Turtle switches from driving to camping mode in just a few moments and provides plenty of space for 2 people to sleep and move comfortably. On top of the trailer sits the inflatable tent, while the underlying transport tray has a capacity of 100kg of storage space for all your belongings. When you’re not touring around, the tent is easily removed, and the trailer may be used for daily activities.
The B-Turtle has two main modes: Turtle Mode (when driving) and Camping Mode (when setup).
Turtle Mode //
The B-Turtle trailer has a dual-wheel, lightweight, aluminium frame and connects to the bike or e-bike via a Weber coupling. The B-Turtle rides with two 16-inch spoked wheels which feature a slight inclination for a smoother ride.
The tent sits on top of the bike trailer and is connected to the aluminium frame via velcro straps. The tent has a pack size of 105cm x 79cm, with a height ranging between 10cm and 15cm.
Camping Mode //
A stable deck platform manufactured from robust drop stitch material gives you a dry and comfortable space, while the generous entry way and living area provides a standing height of 2m x 1.4m and allows easy internal access to your storage tray. The interior of the sleeping quarters has a height of 130cm and a spacious sleeping area of 210cm x 130cm. The inflatable tent is made of a high quality, breathable, and UV resistant Polycotton fabric and there is a clear window at the rear and two mosquito net windows on either side. This ensures good ventilation and light. When the B-Turtle is setup as a micro-caravan, this allows your bicycle to be detached for daily activities.
B-Turtle Setup //
Disconnect the trailer from your bike and continue by extending the two front support legs
Remove the protective travel cover
Open all buckles and unfold the deck platform on both ends.
Transported in the package bag, the two support bars are attached to the lower side of the deck platform on either end via a Velcro strap and secured to the trailer.
Inflate the deck platform using a double-stroke hand or electric pump
Follow with the inflation of the air tent
Fix the trailer to the ground with tent pegs and fasten the tent with guy lines
The dismantling of the B-Turtle runs in the reverse order. The setup of the B-Turtle takes between 10-15 minutes depending on whether you used a double-stroke hand or an electric pump for inflation. Dismantling is done within 10 minutes.
