Welcome to the forum!

Don't be afraid to post where you're from, we ain't gonna hunt you down or anything. We just like to know who our locals are.

Good luck with your build, and don't forget the pics (they're kinda like food, we all live off of 'em)

Andrew designed the Pico Light after the Piccola that was from Germany, I think. Andrew, do you have any pictures of the Piccola handy?

The quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten, so build your teardrop with the best materials...

Pictures? Yeah, we got pictures.

I went to find some in my album and saw that Wimperdink had recently posted a photo of a Piccolo modified for towing behind a Vespa:


The German Piccolo and the nearly identical French Ailette:



The Piccolo was originally made in two parts so that it could be used as a work trailer during the week and converted to a camper at the weekend. Most frightening of all was the idea that the bottom half was watertight and could be used as a boat:




One descendant of the Piccolo is the Sleeper trailer built in Britain:
