Frankly, I was more worried about both being bumper pulls rather than single axle.

We saw one of these roll into White Star Campground this week - I didn't get any pics, but it looked so small rolling in, that when we walked by & saw it fully deployed, we were shocked at the size of it! Very clever way to put a lot of space into a very tiny trailer...

(It's a long video, but you can jump ahead a bit to see it fully deployed & what's inside).

I would think that in many campsites you would have to park it sideways in the lot.

Those tiny things are nifty until the battery dies or hinges bind up or you want to take a quick nap in a Rest Area.

Okay, the Beaver definitely gets a nod for coolness. But I don't know...does it remind anyone of being on an airplane? I've had my fill of stuff like that. But it is cool.

Exactly what I thought. And can you imagine reserving a site and telling the desk you have a 10 foot long trailer but 20 wide!

Talking to my buddy who is this person's neighbor- it might be an air purifier.

It looks like a custom made protective cover over whatever it is.
