Mr Winter said his camper-trailer, that took only minutes to put up, was towed behind his K1200LT BMW.

”I bought the bike from a bloke in Brisbane three years ago,” he said.

”He sent it down to Melbourne and I jumped on it for a trip along the Great Ocean Road before coming back on the ferry – the trailer followed about a year later.

”I haven’t had it on the mainland yet, but I’ve stayed in it a few times in Tassie, mostly after parties.

”It’s easy enough to tow around, you have to steady up a bit and take things a bit slower than on a solo motorcycle – the whole rig weighs about 650 kilograms and 300-odd of that is swinging off the back like a pendulum.

”You don’t see many motorcycles towing camper-trailers.”

Mr Winter said he had trips planned all the time, but his wife Tracy was not so keen.

”It’s five-star accommodation only for Tracy when we travel, but she has spent one night in the camper,” he said.
