For a big adventure think small. Small is the new big. Less is more. Much more when it comes to travel trailers. To boldly go where other campers or travellers might fear to tread, you need to be compact.
The dream ticket is to find adventure all over the state, country or globe, but still have all the comforts of home. How is this possible without towing your actual home behind you?
Introducing Moby1 Expedition Trailers
One organization that have embraced this ideal to the max is Moby1 Expedition Trailers. Founded by Ashley Grimes whose initial idea was to create a camping trailer small and light enough to be towed behind a motorcycle. The engineer found inspiration in the form of teardrop trailers.
Named after their distinctive shape, teardrop trailers were a frequent sight in the 1930s because they were small and light enough to be towed behind a small automobile. The hard times of the great depression also helped ignite the massive growth of the teardrop trailer.
Plans were published in magazines, and people who couldn’t afford a larger travel trailer or didn’t have a vehicle powerful enough to tow one, were inspired to make their own.
Tears to Cheers
The recent economic crash resulted in Ashley being laid off in 2009. Which proved to be a good thing for Ashley. This unexpected free time gave him the chance to combine his love of engineering and design with his passion for motorcycles and camping. He finally had the chance to build a motorcycle trailer. As he and his wife explored the country towing their newly built trailer, they knew they were onto something big. A proper mattress after a long day on the road made camping by motorcycle truly comfortable and much more enjoyable. But it was people power that was to turn this into something much more than a hobby. Folks would flag them down everywhere to find out where they could buy such a trailer. A business was born.
The great outdoors meets the great indoors
Today Moby1 still make motorcycle trailers but they have expanded their range to include Road, Expedition and Cross Country Trailers. These elegantly simple designs were driven by the goal of creating trailers rugged and versatile enough for travel off those less travelled paths. Ashley’s engineering excellence, fine eye for detail and craftsmanship have created trailers which really can travel comfortably all over the globe.
Moby1 trailers allow people to live life fully outdoors. Cooking under the stars in the open air galley but with a warm and comfortable retreat in the finely crafted cabin. This fusion of the great outdoors with the great indoors has created something unique.
Combining the best of traditional camping but with just enough of the home comforts of a RV. With a trailer rugged and light enough to pretty much go where you like. To take camping out of the campsites and back into nature.

Simplicity is something that bonds Moby1 and Propex. Our goal to create the ideal does not mean adding unnecessary complexity, far from it. Great things come from being simple. Simple is nothing new either. William of Ockham, understood 700 years ago how simplicity can lead to something greater. Similarly Einstein is often attributed with the following words of wisdom:
Everything should be kept as simple as possible, but no simpler.
~ Albert Einstein
