While there’s certainly no shortage of camper cabins for traditional vehicles, electric vehicles are still a relatively new beast, and purpose-built outdoor attachments are still catching up. With the success of Rivian’s electric trucks and the hype surrounding Tesla’s Cybertruck (which will hopefully drop at the end of this year), it’s clear that the market is ripe for outdoor enthusiasts. And Camp365 is capitalizing on this with the T Model, a bed-mounted camping cabin designed for EV pickups.
This cabin fits 1/2-ton, 3/4-ton, and 1-ton truck beds and measures four feet wide, with an angular design that’s in line with the futuristic slant many EV pickups are sporting at the moment. It’s designed with these vehicles in mind, sporting a light weight (700-800 pounds) for a truck camper and a foldable design to improve energy consumption and maximize space. It can comfortably sleep up to four adults (or five with kids) and twelve people if they’re standing, with the sleeping options including a folding queen, a twin, or a bunk set-up. Inside, you’re getting an induction cooktop, a folding table, and a sink, along with a shower and portable toilet, with the option to choose between 24 gallons of fresh water storage or 12 gallons of fresh and 12 of grey.
As for the dimensions, the T Model comes in at nine feet by seven feet (in camping mode) with 63 square feet of floor space inside and nearly seven feet of headroom. In travel mode, it’s 48 inches wide, 87 inches long, and 79 inches high. It weighs 700 to 800 pounds, depending on the options you add, and can be stowed in a garage with at least four feet of width. Storage-wise, you get 75-inch-long dry storage between both folding walls, storage racks, and toy racks that can fit up to four bikes.
The Camp365 T Model will begin production in the Summer of 2024, with reservations starting at $100 and an expected retail price of $25,000. You can sign up for more info and check out the specs on Camp365’s website.
