Here are some of my initial thoughts.

1. How long are those beds? I'm 6'2.
2. Why have the entrance go into the bathroom. That could get awkward.
3. The toilet is right under the shower head. I guess that could work but... idk weird to me.

It claims that it only lowers battery range by 5% and is less than half of the beds weight capacity. Overall I think this thing has potential and looks really dope.

What does everyone think?!

What projects have you done before, successful and unsuccessful?

Why do you think you'll be able to manufacture these?

Looks like a outhouse on wheels.
Technically it's a house you can take out so...

But I like the design. If we end up getting the pass-through to the cabin it would be a shame to not be able to use that passageway with this camper. But otherwise, I like the design and think it is one of the better ones out so far. I've probably got another 2 years though till I get my CT so I'll be curious to see what else is out there by then.

Great design. Hope the best for you and your team!
I will need a much lower cost version :). Just the basics please

pretty creative with that 4 pop up design, I wonder how it pops up and it strangely feels like a huge waste of space, where will you keep anything?

Big fat honking NO.

NONE of the items make sense.

Cook inside, where's the steam/oil go? Why go away so you can stand in a box and cook inside? Cram all the food in there so you can bring it out? Everyone else is chatting by the fire while you're in your cubicle away from your cubicle.

BestInTesla suggested you could take this thing anywhere. "If you have ordered a cybertruck for your company and usually get a little mobile home up as your office at the construction site now you don't have to. You have an office right there with you." (shows woman with safety vest on laptop) "...can take a shower, and can have a shower and have coffee". LOL. Who takes a shower at the office? Why? Where on earth can you NOT get a cup of coffee? I get that he's geeking out about playing around with possibilities. When it comes to suggesting a product can actually provide good, play time is over.

I could keep going about all the stupidity.

As for a remote camper replacement, this is designed by someone in a cubicle who wanted a cubicle in their CyberTruck. What's the point of getting out to stay in??
You are right, of course. What idiot would ever buy a camper or an RV. Clearly not you, but I do see a lot of them driving around, various sizes and shapes, and the huge ones clog the camping sites that once were full of tents. I know people that drive these 31’ RVs to Baja and South Padre Island and live in them for months. Not camping, but remote living. No hotels close by. Is it ‘roughing it’? Hell no. It is car camping. The big question is whether it is big enough to sell, not whether it appeals to you.

With a six foot bed the 'beds' in the trailer only looked six feet long. Also I agreed with the fellow earlier about the seats being unecessary. In fact the cab of the truck has some very nice seats :) I prefer the more bed oriented campers.

No one would overland in this thing. It is a weekend camper at best.

R value of 2? This thing will have tons of gaps and allow bugs in.

Where do all the mechanicals go? What about the water tanks? Plumbing?

I see no practically, reliability, or effectiveness in this design.

One common feature of truck campers is to be able to drop the camper at a campsite and use it as a stand-alone shelter. Most of them have corner jacks which reach over the side of the truck to enable this use-case.

There's a trade rag called "Truck Camper Magazine" which is a pretty good source for information about previous attempts to solve problems like this. There may be some useful ideas there which can help evolve the design, and there's a parts bin you can use as well.

Also you might find the design process behind the Taxa Cricket camper to be interesting. It's a compact travel trailer, so it's just a possible source of inspiration.

As for me, a travel trailer fits my needs better than a truck camper (family of 5 and minimal offroading). Using a travel trailer makes all of the tricky systems integration problems go away. Plus, I get to use it with my existing truck this summer, and I'll swap in my EV tow vehicle whenever I get it.

I thought the same thing. Also, if the parts and craftsmanship were excellent, then it would spring a leak, bind a slide, or crunch a sink in years instead of months. There are more moving parts than the pop-outs on an RV.

Looks like smoke and mirrors at this time. Would love to see in person and check out the hydraulics or electrics that power the thing up and down and in and out. A "must-have" is Tesla's camper mode to heat and cool the thing. But yeah, if it all works, I'm in...but as a touchy-feely kind of guy, I 'gotta see a working model.

This product is not for me. I just came to say that the CT in these renders looks beautiful. I generally like the CT in spite of its looks, but it looks great here. Must be the shininess.
