After a tiring week at work, with the weekend joyfully looming ahead of me, I often find myself fantasizing about a short sweet getaway! Just a few days away from my hectic life, and this hectic world, in a bubble of my own, where all my worries are nowhere to be seen. And I do think Camping is a plausible plan! There’s nothing more comforting or exciting than lounging about in a cozy camper while you explore the countryside. You never feel out of place, because these little campers manage to feel like a home on wheels. Fill it up with your dear belongings, and it’s your home away from home. Not to mention the camper designs today are super innovative and inventive! From a Wolf Rigs Hummer camper to a Toyota Hilux camper that is the most rugged two-bed, pop-up roof overland rig you’ll ever ride – these resourceful campers manage to cater to almost all of our needs, solving various problems, and turning our camping experience into a fulfilling and comfortable one.

1. BR75

The SUV adventure camper BR75, as it is called, is a Toyota Hilux turned into an incredible camper for four people. Owning to the Hilux’s extremely tested mobility and robustness, the BR75 naturally makes for the most rugged truck camper you can drive to places that are out of reach for others.

Why is it noteworthy?

Direct Cars has mounted a camper module to the back of the Hilux, without altering the mechanics or form factor of the five-seat pickup. By combining a full-fledged pickup and a camper, the Japanese SUV Adventure Camper BR75 becomes an all-terrain overland rig to keep you cozy no matter how remote a place your journey takes you to.

What we like

  • Laid out with seats and a folding table, which can transform into a double bed on demand
  • Comes with an optional pop-up roof

What we dislike

  • There is no reference to a toilet onboard, you’d probably have to carry a portable seat along

2. The GO Camper

The GO Camper is a towable, lightweight camper that can attach to vehicles of any size, even a Mini Coop.

Why is it noteworthy?

SylvanSport, a USA-based, outdoor adventure goods company, developed their GO Camper to brace all elements while also providing an accessible and versatile living space while getting off the grid for a bit. Described by National Geographic Adventure as the “Coolest. Camper. Ever,” the GO Camper is a super lightweight, towable pop-up tent camper that can accommodate up to four people.

What we like

  • Can be attached to vehicles of all sizes, even the tiny Mini Cooper
  • An equipment rack provides extra space to keep all the accessory equipment that will make maximize any camping trip adventure

What we dislike

  • Not the best size for a family, or if multiple people are traveling. More suited for solo travelers

3. Emma

A camping trailer with a distinctive personality, Emma is designed to make those scenic rides in the city outskirts more exciting. The trailer is fashioned with a glass door on the passenger side. Kuckoo will give adventurers an option to customize the camper with a glass door on the driver’s side as well.

Why is it noteworthy?

The glass sides of the Emma along with the rear glass window and a skylight in the living area, make this camper a day rider’s delight. And if you like sleeping in the great outdoors at a campsite, it wouldn’t get better than safely cocooning within the Emma and still having full, unobstructed sight of the stars and the surrounding.

What we like

  • Excellent for panoramic journeys and extravagant halts under the starry sky

What we dislike

  • It’s still a prototype!

4. The Campervan Raptor XC

This ingenious expandable camper comes with a slide-out expansion option right above where the lift-up tailgate galley would be. This turns the compact teardrop into a full-sized caravan to accommodate a family of four. When completely expanded the camper makes enough room for a master bedroom, indoor kitchen, wet bathroom, and a sizeable dining area. So, we are talking of the best of both worlds – the compact footprint of a teardrop trailer and the airy layout of a large caravan!

Why is it noteworthy?

Demand for camper trailers is skyrocketing lately, as more and more people are fancying adventurous life on the road for a fortnight or even for life. This has had a surge in the number of camper trailers in production as makers try to fulfill the unique set of demands of customers who won’t settle for anything ordinary. The Campervan Raptor XC teardrop camper by Hunter Nature is another prime example of a rugged camper that has plenty of room thanks to its ingenious design.

What we like

  • Loaded with BFGoodrich all-terrain tires in alloy wheels, and an independent suspension system to ensure a smooth ride.
  • 160-W solar panels on top

What we dislike

  • Made to be towed with a Land Rover Defender or Toyota Land Cruiser – which can be limiting

5. SkyView Camper

Teardrop trailers have cramped-up interiors and most travel trailers are built to look alike. Marrying the advantages of a camping trailer in a teardrop form factor with artistic leverage and space to accommodate two people in harmony; SkyView Camper is set to be that tiny home trailing your car.

Why is it noteworthy?

Inspired by mid-century modern architecture, the SkyView boasts a modern shape with a commitment to the best utilization of space. So, within a 143-in x 76-in space you get a well-designed and spaciously crafted living/sleeping area for two people.

What we like

  • Inspired by mid-century architecture
  • Features a minimalistic design language

What we dislike

  • Only suited for two people

6. The Mini Pop Bee Active Gear

Mystic has outfitted this camper for off-road rides in a delightfully compact form factor that should not leave you wanting even if you have to extend the road trip for some reason. Despite sharing traits, the Mini Pop Bee Active Gear has a more integrated design than other similar truck campers on the market; it offers access from the rear door, and is aptly sized to accommodate up to four people. This is done comfortably by converting the small cabin into a bedroom and pop-up roof providing more space to sleep additional travelers in the flip-up bed.

Why is it noteworthy?

Camping in the wild is an experience none of us adventurers can resist. Therefore, the vehicle for our adventures should have the competence to negotiate rough terrains and present a glamping- esque experience. The Mini Pop Bee Active Gear based on the truck variant of the Daihatsu Hijet ticks all the boxes. Available in a 4-wheel drive model, the truck camper is fitted with rough terrain tires and suspension to bear the brunt.

What we like

  • Affordably priced
  • Option between 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive models

What we dislike

  • Old fashioned aesthetics
  • No integrated stove in the kitchenette. You need to carry your own portable stove

7. Patton

Wolf Rigs dubs this guy as the “go-anywhere overland comfort castle,” after a good sight at the images, I’m sure you’d be left with little doubt. For whatever little skepticism, the camper is a converted Hummer H1 designed to stream roll over the petit RVs, thanks to its dominant look and the Humvee chassis.

Why is it noteworthy?

This military-grade camper is called the Patton and, as expected from the look of things, it features a shell and frame made completely from aluminum; essentially to keep the weight of the vehicle as light as possible. On the outside, it may strike dominance with its beastly appearance, but on the inside, this guy has been nurtured with utmost care and fineness.

What we like

Interiors are naturally lit with skylights and windows in the loft

Wolf Rigs allows customizing the Patton with installs you’d want

What we dislike

  • At $350,000, it is an expensive option
  • Not the best camper for off-grid stays

8. The Bailey Discovery D4-2 Camper Trailer

The Bailey Discovery D4-2 Camper Trailer is one such creation, tailored for adventure enthusiasts who can’t help but satiate their wanderlust – exploring the untrodden trails. The USP of this camper trailer is its inflatable awning which creates almost double the private space you need for your escapades under the star-studded nights.

Why is it noteworthy?

On the inside, D4-2 is equipped with all the amenities and a fully furnished interior. Enough to suffice the needs of a couple on their long road trip – with the odd guest coming along the way for a couple of days. The big windows on all sides and the skylight fills the interiors with enough sunlight for a calming feel. The lounge area includes two couches and a fold-down table. In the kitchen, you’ll get an oven/grill combo appliance, a drop-down worktop extension, and a sink. On the opposite side, there is a mini-fridge with space underneath to store food and beverages. You also get the convenience of a shoes and clothes closet along with a separate area for cabinet storage. Of course, there is a good-sized bathroom too!

What we like

  • Feels like a separate space
  • Made from weather-resistant fabric

What we dislike

  • The attached sleeping tent is optional

9. The FlexCamp Off-road Camper Trailer

Designed for urban landscapes while exploring the countryside, the FlexCamp off-road camper trailer expands vertically and to one side to increase the inside space by almost double. It’s essentially a very basic trailer or pickup-top box that morphs into a micro-cabin for four people!

Why is it noteworthy?

Given the German company’s prowess in developing robust, all-weather campers in the past, the FlexCamp is another winning design in the making. Mind you, the boxy shape makes it perfect to mount on a pickup bed too. Once parked for camping, the 126 inches long camper trailer’s hydraulic system lifts the roof up and expands the sidewall. That turns the camper’s height from 79 inches to 120 inches, and the width from 80 inches to 131 inches.

What we like

  • Expands to the size of a micro-cabin
  • The drawers beneath the bed are accessible both from the outside and inside

What we dislike

  • The pull-out dry toilet isn’t the most comfortable option

10. Space Camper

Space Camper is the latest name to enter the domain of Cybecamper idealizers. This space has gone incredibly buzzing since the Elon Musk detailed at the Cybertruck announcement that it would be accompanied by a trailer and a pop-up tent of its own, giving rise to a host of designs imagining the camping version of the Cybertruck.

Why is it noteworthy?

Equipped to take a couple anywhere on tar, gravel, and boulders – the Space Camper is designed from aerospace-grade materials for durability. The wedge-style unit tethers to the back of the Cybertruck without much fuss. It is positioned close to the road and can be pulled up to camp anywhere instantly.

What we like

  • Designed from aerospace-grade materials
  • The camper is packed with extensions tucked away under the bed which can double as a table and seating

What we dislike
