Vega Wheelcamper was a name behind the creation of camping trailers, travel trailers and fifth wheel trailers. First built in the 1960s, Vega Wheelcamper products were designed as lightweight trailers that could comfortably be towed by a passenger car or pickup truck. Vega Wheelcamper production ended after the 1978 model year.
