I agree, the price is way too much, I bought a 2021 Coachmen Viking 17FQS (New) last fall for $24k and it included kitchen, bathroom, dining area, and queen bed.

Exactly...and that coachman has about 10 time the exterior material, plus wheels, axle, cabinets, etc.

I like the space camper, but unlike Big Money Grip @Ogre , I'm more like a reluctant $3k sure, but $5k mmmmaybe?.

Looks pretty dope but yeah $24K is def steep. If I DID buy it I would def want all the add-ons to make it worthwhile, but I can't imagine how much all-in.. Not to mention where TF I'm gonna store the damn thing! It would take up an entire garage bay on that stand.

LOL

For reference most roof top tents are in the $2000 - $5000 ballpark. You can get a full on truck bed camper with a crapper and a kitchen for $25k

This is a bit nicer than a RTT but $24k is cray cray

The new grifter targets... Cybertruck owners who plan to camp.

These campers are all a joke that no one should be dropping real cash on until they have real products. And they can't have real products until the cybertruck is really available.

It's insane the other one has been fully funded on Kickstarter or whatever website they used.

You have no idea what end product you are putting money down on until the truck has been released. these camper designs are just fantasy at this point.

Btw, agreed that price is insane for essentially a fancy bed cover. Designer smoking some serious crack thinking that is acceptable pricing. You can literally buy an RV for that price. A bed cover is like 1k. A fancy bed cover should not be anywhere over 5k.

yep. The whole crowdfunding movement is a little weird

I do not understand the benefits of a tent on the truck. The only thing I’ve heard is protection from bears and scorpions. Bears can climb trees, so how could they not climb onto the back of my Cybertruck?

I would much rather put a $100 Costco tent next to my truck. Or just sleep under the stars (better view, save $100), and if the weather turns, then I’ll move to the cab. Ideally, the front seats will fold flat so I can just move my Thermarest from outside.

This saves me from having to unload all of my gear (mountain bikes, backpacks, rafts, microwave oven,…) from the bed of the truck and also saves me, I just learned, $24,000.

A lot of my friends feel the same way.

In my book it boils down to how much time it saves you setting up and breaking down and the comfort of having a better mattress on a flat level surface.

Is that worth… $24k? Nah. Maybe $5k if it saves a bunch of time and effort. But much like you I ride mountain bikes a lot and want to use my truck at the destination.

I love great ideas for the CT but my wife prefer total comfort if she go with me for the traveling. I will stick with the reservation with Cyberlandr.

I will say. This platform has piqued my interest enough to reinvigorate my enthusiasm for CT. Its been dying on the vine lately...

Still, not enough to take SpaceCamper seriously at that price point.

That is correct. It's also correct that I own none of those overpriced tents.

I guess I sort of can see some utility to having all these features in a 40 sf space, but unless I am camping in a parking stall, its a tough sell for me. Most often if you are somewhere comfortable enough to pop up your $25k posh camping shell you will likely be out camping with space to set up a small kitchen, table and tent etc. with much more utility and space than cramming it into the bed of your truck.

This is probably the most aesthetically accurate shell for the truck that I have seen so far. And if it were just a shell for $4k to $5k i would probably put a deposit down.

I think the coolest option out there right now is what we are seeing with Heimplanet and Alpha Motors. They have an inflateable structure that attaches to the truck and adds a ton of space. I can easily see the CT having a compressed air reservoir and this tent folding up like a airplane escape slide and pushing a button and having your tent up in 20 seconds. I would pay a couple thousand for that.

If you haven't checked out what Alpha Motors is up to lately you really need to check it out. They have some of the coolest concepts around and I think we all need to be rooting for them. And no, i am in no way financially connected to them. I have said a couple times that it would be a really smart move for tesla to buy Alpha and make those vehicles a reality. There is a very small chance that they will ever make it to reality and they have such a cool concept and I really think Telsa needs to keep getting out of its comfort zone to stay on top.

Why not build this idea for existing trucks? It’s pretty cool but they need to sell it under $10k. Otherwise just buy a camper/trailer.
