Inside luxe micro-home with kitchen and living space that can be attached to car
Future Tesla Cybertruck owners have the chance to turn their vehicles into a micro-home on wheels, thanks to an amazing new attachment.
You may need to save up though, as it won't come cheap.
US company Form Camper has designed a fully detachable accessory for Elon Musk's much-hyped truck.
This comes equipped with a shower, double bed, kitchen and a living area.
However, you may need to save the pennies, as the attachment is a cool £51,824.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed the Cybertruck for the first time in November 2019 and famously managed to shatter two of the vehicle's 'bulletproof' windows during the launch event.
The prototype hit the streets of Manhattan in May of this year, as hundreds of New Yorkers lined up outside the Tesla showroom to catch a rare glimpse of it.
Musk said last month that the vehicle will go into 'volume production' in 2023, rather than in 2022, as originally predicted.
He said that 'several supply chain shortages' were the cause behind the delay, with prices set for around £29,839 ($40,000) to £52,225 ($70,000) in the US.
The all-electric truck's body is based on a 1976 Lotus Esprit sports car Musk owned back in 2013.
While the rest of the design pulls inspiration from vehicles in films Blade Runner, Mad Max, Back to the Future and Alien.
The camping accessory, which is called Form is the brainchild of a group of industrial designers and engineers from California.
It is designed to slot into the truck bed of the Cybertruck and folds away until it's activated.
The bed, which comes fitted with hidden storage space, can be turned into a single or a double depending on the user’s needs.
Campers sleep on a memory foam mattress and lay under a vaulted ceiling.
Also included in the attachment is a Nebia shower and a compact cassette toilet, which has a portable tank.
The toilet space is separated from the rest of the camper by a curtain, and, when not in use, the toilet area turns into a cushioned bench.
The kitchen comes with a Dometic fridge and stove, as well as ‘high-end cookware’.
Part of the kitchen is external, with a sink and cutlery drawer sitting under the awning, and a foldaway chair and table have also been built into the furnishings.
Solar panels have been built into the design, which offer 400 watts of power.
Overall, the camper has 71 sq ft (6.7 m sq) of floor space – 38 sq ft (3.5 m sq) of which is at the level of the truck bed.
According to the manufacturers, it will have a dry weight of approximately 1,000lbs (454 kilos), which will impact the range of the truck by less than 5%.
The attachment isn’t only compatible with the Cybertruck – it’s also designed to work with the majority of pick-up trucks, such as the Ford F-150 or the Chevrolet Silverado.
The company brands the attachment as a ‘modern-day stress-free camper’, adding that the ‘Form is spacious, lightweight, and solar powered’.
The 'Form' attachments will be shipped directly to buyers' homes, with the company predicting that the first models will be shipped 'in the latter half of 2022'.
Elon Musk also seems to approve of the attachment, as said in a tweet back in July that it was 'cool'.
