What about a simple VW Transporter style camper van?
Easy setup and no issues parking in town or stopping at a hotel/motor inn if he needs a decent room for a night or 2 while traveling around.
Good option I reckon... less problems with backing trailers, and less to break down. My olds had a Kombi in the 70/80's.. went everywhere in that and was really well setup.

Or if he wants offroad, something like Noels ute camper

I think it's the way to go for a solo senior camper.   Simple easy and the least amount of parts to go wrong.

Yep, I don't see the point in him towing something, if he wanted something he could take a bit more offroad, then one of the tray back campers on a Hilux would be another option, although that might end up being a bit high to get up into.

They just needed more "bamboo" supports.

When I started to read your initial post my first thought was HiAce van style.  Probably wouldn't go pop top on one though unless it is little effort.  Fiamma style awning and pull out kitchen.

I only got to the Easter races once, in the mid 70s. Had a '65 650 Bonnie. Great bike except for the 6v "Prince of Darkness" electrics! :D

On a recent trip, I was chatting to a woman, in her mid 70s, who is on her lonesome and travelling in this. Quite a good setup for one and easy to operate. With her solar panel, she is 99% independant and mainly free camps.

Dad used to fish the Tweed and surrounding coast, basicaly 24 / 7 to help help keep the deemons of his wartime experiences away, plus  to keep / feed us ..
If a pack of clowns tried to fish all over him, He would make out he was baiting up / rig one of his special razor sharp home made Jag hooks, On the walk to cast out again  and cut the clowns gear off, in such a way they never knew that he did it .. before moving on ..
He was taught by a South Sea Islander to fish from a very early age and became a master craftsman  fisherman early in the 80 years he fished ..

Edz, I hope you've still got that rod!

Don't know if anybody is interested in joining in to count birds in the backyard (or wherever else you may be) ???

https://aussiebirdcount.org.au/

& btw, that's birds with feathers, that (usually) fly, not the ones lying on the beach wearing bikinis! ;D

Yep, we're in it, Fizzie. 20 minutes, early this morning, 14 species. This evening, there will be several different, nocturnal species to add.
