Tipoon Camper Pod Effortlessly Expands 300%

Written by 

Carting around a full-sized camping vehicle amounts to more than some road-trippers want to take on, particularly in regions with narrow roads or low clearances.

But who wants to take the time to manually "unfold" a compact camper once they've finally arrived at the perfect vacation spot?

Tipoon The Travel Machine solves that problem by expanding to three times its compact size at the mere touch of a button. As it opens upwards and outwards, the camper stabilizes to offer an inviting space for as many as four people.

The French makers of the Tipoon claim that, in its compact state, the camper will fit "everywhere, even in your garage!" By using a handy remote control, the camper is said to open or close in mere seconds. Given the interior height of 1.9 m (6.23 ft), most people should be able to walk around indoors without worrying about bumping their heads. The Tipoon can also be customized to include the owner's favorite accessories and colors.

The whole idea for the Tipoon began back in October 2014, says its designer, Jean: “I wanted to create a slightly 'magical' solution applying sleek lines to the somewhat dull and sobre shapes of a traditional caravan or trailer – something beautiful that would be with me at home or while away, and something light that was easy and convenient to tow for those unplanned weekends (or weeks) away from it all."

After being unveiled to the public in April 2017, Tipoon's makers received enough funding to place the camper into commercial production. The first models, priced at around $30,000 USD (about 24,500 Euros), are expected to roll off the line in June 2018.
