Scottie Shultz is building and selling an RV that, he realizes, “is such an off-the-wall concept that people don’t get it.”

So he’s organized a weekend adventure for a small group of people to try out the BikeStream RV — to actually tow it behind their bikes — while they explore the backcountry of Marshall County. After all, that’s how it works.

This bike trailer looks like a super-downsized version of a car-towed trailer.

It opens up as a cozy shelter for a slightly more than 6-foot adult to sleep, sit up and read by an on-board light, wash hands in a dry sink from a jug of water with a valve, stow goods in small compartments and open small, screened windows, a skylight and vents. Apart from the hitch, wheels and platform, most of it is made from lightweight but rigid corrugated plastic. The inside walls are lined with foil insulation. The cost: $2,395.
