hopefully this video says.

it rises might be a alaskan truck camper mounted on a trailer with a add on cabin??

I have always been fascinated with the Fold n Roll mainly because it had a front tire which was a airplane wheel up front so you would not have to worry about weight on your bumper.

This site not only offers the fold n roll which may or may not give a hoot about but it offers several videos of Betty White and her camping days.
and idea on camping cooler ice and a video from the Long Long trailer 1953 with Lucy from I love Lucy the trailer also had a third wheel.

Starling-travel has lots of subjects
http://www.starling-travel.com/category/camping/page/2/
offers a duct tape camper!!

and if that is not unusual next time you meet someone who says they have no skill at making a camper you can pull out the duct tape and and ;)

If you like the expandable type of trailer, you might want to see some French market vans ("véhicules magasins" - shop vehicles)- the typical town market trader had a van or trailer that opened up many ways to give the largest undercover area for merchandise.
