Trakke Jero Portable Yurt
A yurt may sound like something new from Yoplait, but no, it’s actually a portable structure developed by the nomadic people of Central Asia that’s been used for at least 3,000 years. Lesson learned.
A Scotland-based company called Trakke has leaned on the yurt for guidance with its new product called Jero, a 129 square foot space for camping out or even using as a spare bedroom in the backyard. It reportedly takes less than two hours to put together, and that’s without tools but with friends. It’s made with marine-grade plywood, and features a rot-proof and waterproof canvas covering, telescopic roof poles, and a removable door. Trakke says it’s sturdy, but also lightweight, so you can carry it by car with no problem. $7,447 will make you the most unique camper in North America. [Purchase]
