FAQ

GENERAL

The HC1 can be pulled by most vehicles! It’s lightweight, aerodynamic, maneuverable, and stylish.  But it’s the Adaptiv™ modular interior that really sets the HC1 apart. Easily configure and reconfigure the interior in matter of minutes to fit a variety of needs, from camping to hauling, guest quarters to pop-up office. There are so many ways to utilize and enjoy an HC1 – find yours!

With the all-new Traveler, you can go anywhere without sacrificing comfort or versatility. The Traveler has been optimized to provide more living space and the flexibility to work, relax, and enjoy life on the road.

The HC1 has a dry weight of 1,100 lbs. If it's fully loaded, you can be closer to 1,500+ lbs. We recommend your vehicle has a towing capacity of at least 2,000 lbs, which is the standard for most cars. 

The HCT is under 2,500 lbs loaded and is easily transported by cars, trucks, and SUVs.

HAPPIER CAMPER OWNERS

For the HC1 & HCT, the serial numbers are located on the front of frame by the tongue. 

The HC1 trailers use a 13″ trailer tire with a B-load rating. The width of the tire should be less than 7. 

The HCT uses a heavy-duty 14" tire with a C-load rating. 

The HC1 can be towed with most vehicles and a standard trailer hitch. The HCT can be towed by cars, SUVs, and trucks. We recommend using a 7-pin connector. Contact support@happiercamper.com to receive our towing guide.

ADAPTIV™ MODULAR INTERIOR

You can learn more about our super lightweight but rigid & heavy-duty modular interior system on our "What is Adaptiv™?" page 

The HC1 Adaptiv™
kitchenette uses a portable sink system designed to be used both inside and outside the trailer. The kitchenette has both fresh water inlets and gray water outlets on the back of the cube for easy filling and draining. You can drain your grey tank by using the hose to connect to the outlet on the side of the trailer, just under the side-wall storage compartment at the front left of the trailer. The internal fresh water and grey water tanks are about 5-gallons. It is recommended that two people lift and move the portable sink if tanks are full.

While it is not needed, it is recommended that you add the locking hardware to the upper cubes to keep them in place during bumpy travel.

The flip and lock counter top comes standard with the kitchenette cube, but is also available for the counter top cube if needed. Keep in mind the flip and lock counter top cannot have a cube next to it. Feel free to contact us for a full assessment of your Adaptiv™ needs.

Structural Questions

Happier Campers are made of two layers: one exterior layer that surrounds a second interior layer. Both layers are covered in a gelcoat. The benefits of a double hull trailers include improved insulation and weather barriers. 

Honeycomb fiberglass is a relatively new technology. It consists of an ultra-lightweight material designed to mimic the shape of honeycomb, thus distributing weight and providing great strength. This material is then wrapped in fiberglass sheets, followed by a specialized resin and a smooth gel coat finish. Our honeycomb fiberglass floor is 1.5″ thick and very rigid. It will not rot or deteriorate, and under normal conditions with proper care will last decades. 

POWER AND ELECTRICAL

The red wire goes to the positive side of the battery and the black wire goes to the negative side.

The Progressive Dynamics converter converts 120 volt power (standard shore power) to 12 volt power. This allows the converter to run the 12 volt lights and appliances while simultaneously charging the battery on the trailer.

It is possible for the HC1 to have perpetual power for its built-in electronics. The beefy AGM Deep Cycle battery is continuously charged by the contoured 100-watt solar panel. The auto-switching power converter provides both a DC and AC fuse panel and charges your battery when plugged in. The super clean waveform Zamp Solar power inverter provides 600 watts of medical-grade power for your sensitive devices (computers, CPAP). We built the HC1’s power system to be extremely efficient for extreme fun.

All Happier Camper lights, including exterior running and tail lights and interior "mood lighting" click lamps, are energy-efficient LEDs.

CLIMATE & COMFORT

Between the dual hull fiberglass shell is a thin thermal layer of thinsulate. Depending on weather conditions, condensation can still develop, but because Happier Campers are made with fiberglass and other long-lasting materials, this will not harm the trailer or its components. 

Customers often include a forced-air heater system in their buildout or bring a small portable heater to enjoy cooler weather comfortably. 

Happier Campers are constructed with a sealed dual fiberglass hull designed to eliminate rot and prevent leaks. Happier Campers stand up to the harshest of conditions. 

Thanks to our double-hull fiberglass construction, insulation, and built-in fan, you can be very comfortable in extreme temperatures. We also offer an optional AC package for you to stay extra cool in the summer.

While the HC1 is not designed for off-road use, the trailer’s light weight, rugged frame, and 14-inch clearance provide plenty of freedom. For more clearance, we offer a lifted package.

CARE AND WARRANTY

Happier Camper offers a 1-year guarantee on the structural elements and workmanship on all our travel-trailers.

Gel-coat has been used for decades in the production of cars, boats, and airplanes. Just like the paint on a new car, if you keep it washed and waxed properly, it will retain its stunning & lustrous appearance for years to come. Always wash bird droppings and tree sap off as soon as possible. If possible, keep your Happier Camper under a shelter or covered when not in use.

ADD-ONS AND UPGRADES

YES! The modular interior makes for easy upgrades and additions throughout the life of your trailer. We're always innovating and developing new products. Stay tuned!

There is a 15% restocking fee for most items purchased from Happier Camper. 

The Nature of Fiberglass

Fiberglass is an amazing material known for its high strength-to-weight ratio. It is about 1/3 the weight of any wood or metal. Our campers are made of tiny glass fibers bound in a strong matrix of resin. It is then topped with a glossy gelcoat finish. 

We believe our process is the best way to make a long-lasting camper built to last generations. 

If cared for correctly, fiberglass has incredible longevity. It won't sag, rot, leak, or rust like other campers that use wood and metal.

Fiberglass can be hand-sculpted in a way many materials cannot to provide the beautiful curves in our designs. Fiberglass also provides a beautiful, vibrant, distinct finish. 

Fiberglass Support

Fiberglass is flexible but the gelcoat is less flexible and, in some circumstances, can crack. These are common and normal part of wear and tear. 

Cosmetic cracks are common and do not require repair. They are often caused by general wear, frequent use, bumpy roads, and minor impacts. Gelcoat cracks and spider cracks are typical examples of cosmetic cracks. Contact support@happiercamper.com for assistance and more information.

These larger, defined cracks are not common and can be caused by a number of factors including impact, misuse, or manufacturing defects. If you see cracks like this please contact support@happiercamper.com for assistance and more information.

Fiberglass does not absorb moisture. Since our campers use a double hull construction, condensation can sometimes accumulate (especially when it's very cold outside and warm inside the camper). In conventional campers, that moisture is absorbed in wood, carpets, and metals which eventually leads to rot, mold, rust, and smell. We don't use those materials because we don't want our customers to deal with the discomfort associated with these problems. You can wipe down the condensation, wait for it to evaporate, or drain from the camper. 

Definitely! In fact, fiberglass repair is not difficult to do yourself. You can find many ‘how-to’ videos on YouTube, and most auto stores sell fiberglass repair kits. For larger damage, contact us for advice or try a local boat repair company.

It is important to know the difference between cosmetic and structural cracks. Cosmetic cracks are fine, narrow cracks which occur frequently in fiberglass campers are completely normal! Structural cracks are larger, clearly visible cracks. Impact cracks are caused by vehicle accidents, improper use, or acts of nature. 

Impacts are caused by blunt trauma and we advise you repair them as soon as possible. These are easy to fix in most cases. Contact support@happiercamper.com for assistance and more information.
