I still want to do this. I did send an email to the bamboo site, but haven't received a reply.

Ultimate Bike Camping Trailer

Tony Hoar is a Canadian who builds and sells bike trailers. He created a model called the "JourneyMan Mobile Shelter" originally for homeless people. But the design of this trailer is so brilliant that I'm thinking of either building or buying one myself. It's really the ultimate for bicycle camping -- kind of an Airstream for bikes. Absolutely ingenious.

For a motored bike, you would probably have to modify the hitch, but it solves two problems of bicycle camping: carrying a lot of stuff, and sleeping on the ground (especially in cooler weather). Sleeping off the ground is so much more comfortable...
