This Compact Honda Kei Car Camper Conversion Is A Tiny House On Wheels

Just because you’re looking at getting into van life, doesn’t mean that you have to go out and buy a house on wheels. On the contrary — if there’s one thing we’ve learned from the mounting Tiny House movement, it’s that bigger isn’t always better. Just take this compact camper conversion from Japan-based White House, for instance.

It’s called the ‘N-Compo,’ and it’s based on Honda’s tiny N-Van kei car. Available in both single and multi-sleeper varieties, it features a pop-up top, a fold-out side awning, and an expandable privacy tent for adding an outdoor patio space. Inside, White House has really made the most of the camper’s limited capacity, fitting it with a pair of seat-supported platform beds and installing some aftermarket cubbies for managing storage. The N-Compo’s pièce de résistance, however, lies in its ingenious appliance integration. That is, by relocating the camper equipment to the back of the van, White House manages to fit everything from a sink and a set of shelves to a microwave and a collapsible dining table into a vehicle that’s some 20″ shorter than a Mazda Miata. Add to that amenities like a folding workstation, a built-in refrigerator, and a rear screen door, and you’re left with an adventure rig that’s small in size yet enormous in adventure potential.

Unfortunately, White House’s N-Compo camper conversion is only available in Japan for the time being. And it’s a shame, because it’s a bargain with prices starting at ¥2,234,100 (~$20,200).

Purchase: $20,200+
