Camping products designed to glam up your rustic millennial camping adventure!

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. The pandemic may restrict my actual traveling plans, but it definitely cannot restrict my daydreams about vacations! Jetsetting on a flight may not be a practical option right now, but I do think Camping is a plausible plan! Although camping does have a few downsides too! I mean, you have to get down and dirty, live life on the road, and tackle the moodiness of the elements. In such a scenario, having a set of trustworthy and handy camping products can make a world of difference! Having the right products by your side can make your life much easier during those crucial moments. From an avocado-shaped tent to a portable bbq grill that folds into a suitcase, we’ve curated some fun and functional camping product designs for you! Enjoy.

You can find these unique tents in the Borgloon forest in Belgium if you are looking for a safer alternative to the usual touristy destinations post the pandemic. In fact, it has gained attention only now when people are looking to camp outdoors because it is safer, won’t require you to fly, budget-friendly and avoids the crowds. Designed by the Dutch artist Dre Wapenaar, these ‘Tranendreef’ tree tents blend architecture and sculpture into one functional structure. The tent is suspended above the ground and basically hangs on the tree like fruit. The guests use a ladder to get inside/outside. It can host two adults and two small children. Originally installed as part of a public art project called ‘Pit’ (hence the avocado shape we assume) organized by Z33, it brought art into the public space of Borgloon.

The Z-Triton Electric Houseboat was created as a vehicle that could serve as an alternative to the traditional camper. It is comfortable enough to house two adults for a weekend getaway and the choice of land or water is up to the travelers. The amphibious nature of the modern camper fits into the flexible lifestyle we lead today, especially since air travel is not on the cards anytime soon it is opening up a lot of avenues for local trips in less popular/offbeat locations. The durable houseboat measures 3.6 meters in length, 1.2 meters in width, and 1.55 meters in height.





The Nomad Grill and smoker doesn’t come with any smart buttons or functionality but the intuitive industrial design makes it better than any smart options out there. It’s ultra-portable, has a cool modern design, and packs down to the size of a small briefcase. To make sure the heat stays inside and not radiate to the outside of the unibody case measuring 2×2 feet, it is crafted from anodized aluminum. The inside cooking area gives you 212 square inches of space for smoking or you can opt to double the space with open-grill mode. That’ll give you enough cooking area to barbeque steaks, ribs, or burgers – or even two racks of ribs or 30 burger patties.

Modern lifestyle has created a new genre of digital nomads – people who love the outdoors while balancing their work/ tech life. After all, while we crave a digital detox, we can’t really completely cut off from our smartphones. How can the humble trailer designs be adapted to meet their new-age camping needs while maintaining that sacred indoor-outdoor balance? The answer to that is the “NoMad” – a light and resistant vehicle that is presented as a fusion between a traditional tent and a futuristic-looking van designed by the ABIBOO Studio. Each NoMad creates this balance by designing 3 unique compartments – a wet area that holds the kitchen and bathroom, a living room/guest room/workroom, and thirdly a master bedroom that separates from to living room to help you disconnect at the end of the day. The layout of the trailer holds the wet area at the center of the design, automatically creating a barrier/ separation between the living room and the bedroom. Given the space constraints, every bit in the vehicle design holds storage space and hidden seating space. Smart use of terraces means we can leverage the outside space once the trailer is settled in.

The TACTICA M.020 Camping Tool Card is the novelty you want to always have in your wallet for the multitude of uses it brings to the fore. Ideal for adventure seekers who want to carry as little gear as possible, the multitool has a surprisingly great combo of minimal size (about that of a credit card) and more than 15 functions that come really handy for people who hike, camp, or go for an unexpected adventure quite often. TACTICA M.020 is made from a single piece of super-tough Grade-5 titanium or 420 stainless steel (depending on the one you choose). Well suited for any tasks at home or in the outdoors this tool includes functions like – a sundial, screwdriver, rope tensioner with finger pulls, saw blade for cutting, pry bar, metric ruler for measuring, fire starter courtesy the removable ferrocerium striker rod, tent peg puller for camping in a jiffy, can opener for home use, and bottle opener for times when you desperately need one!

For the good of every camper, Pyro Camp Fire and Grill presents a portable alternative to setting up the fire under the night sky and grill to prepare a sumptuous meal in the wilderness. Pyro Camp Fire is a portable fire pit constructed chiefly of American steel. It is provided with a grill/griddle extension for enthusiasts who want to create an inviting ambiance by burning wood or charcoal in a safe and clean manner. And when the stomach calls, the top extension can be swapped and you are good to prepare a meal or heat up the precook food on you. Designed by a team of camping and overloading enthusiasts themselves, this portable fire pit has an 18-inch long and 14-inch wide combustion chamber, while the contraption measure 9-inch tall.

Thomas Hoffman, a design student at the University of Colorado, managed to work at EarthRoamer (famous overland camper builder) as part of his senior design project after graduation. This polished his overlander skills, and he finally had the confidence to create something of his own – in the process, creating a teardrop trailer startup that now can be deemed as the best camper trailer out there money can buy. The NS-1 (Nomadic Systems 1) was in the works ever since his design project at the university, and once Hoffman was confident about his skills, the project finally saw fruition. This all-electric rugged camper runs solely on solar power with the ability to power the onboard electronics and appliances, including cabin heater, kitchen, lights, and more.

The Muzen Wild Mini Rugged Outdoor Speaker lets you listen to music anywhere! Portable and compact, it’s perfect to carry on all your camping and outdoor adventures. Equipped with a built-in outdoor flashlight that comes in three modes – high, low, and SOS, the speaker can light up those dark areas you encounter while camping. Boasting a six-hour battery life, the speaker is durable and water-resistant as well, so you can carry it to the beach without fear of spoiling it. Listening to your favorite tunes, without damaging the speaker playing it, is now possible with Muzen’s Outdoor Speaker!

The BioLite Headlamp 750 is a wearable light that helps you see in the dark without having to hold a torch in your hand! Perfect for camping and other outdoor adventures, you can wrap the lamp around your head and make use of its eight lighting modes. You can adjust the settings and the brightness according to your need and the need of the environment. The headlamp’s 3D SlimFit construction ensures it stays tightly fitted on your head, so you can carry out your tasks without the fear of it slipping off!

Lee’s induction dual stovetop was constructed to make those tiring, family trips a little bit more relaxing and easygoing because that’s what camping’s all about if you’re doing it right. Eating is a necessary part of any family trip and cooking for the whole family can sometimes take up that prime golden hour time that should be spent fireside. The design for the induction dual stovetop provides two induction surfaces suited for various kinds of cookware and less time spent actually cooking. Since the family was at the center of this design, Lee incorporated a safety sensor that must alert users of surfaces that might be too hot to touch and an intuitive interface that younger folks can understand just as well as the adults.

A trailer designed for the modern Nomad to meet their futuristic outdoor camping needs!

Modern lifestyle has created a new genre of digital nomads – people who love the outdoors while balancing their work/ tech life.

Given the space constraints, every bit in the vehicle design holds storage space and hidden seating space. Smart use of terraces means we can leverage the outside space once the trailer is settled in. Overall the design balances four aspects – lightness (hence saving fuel), creating resistance to avoid collisions or overturning of the vehicle, a minimum thickness that provides the best insulation, and finally, an aesthetically packaged home interior and exterior. These mobile homes can be installed in unique outdoor sites. Its size makes it easy to park in the city and in the garage of the main residence, an important condition for those who want to choose when, where, and for how long to stay in one place.

Working from home and telecommuting has showcased the futuristic scenario where commuting is a bare minimum. As journalist Kimberly Mok, author of the book The modern house bus, points out, “The Internet enables a growing number of people to work from home or travel and work full-time, combined with a strong interest in the minimalist lifestyle. It makes us see more people turning their vehicles into homes that they can take wherever they go”. Freedom from location brings to mind new age campsites equipped with great wifi connectivity and other digital requirements – supplemented by bathrooms and a food store, surrounded by a lot of green or endless kilometers on the beach – and meeting likeminded people when they come across your pathway or have a meetup set with your friends. Call me a romantic, but I do think it would make the perfect meet-cute! The future is an evolution of our past when met with today’s challenge to design a future that is uniquely ours, the digital nomads!

This outdoor fire pit + flexible grill is the perfect accessory to elevate your camping trip!





Setting up fire and cooking are two integral things that the average adventurist does wrong. It’s not easy camping if you are not sure how you’re going to set up a fire, and eventually cook the food you have been carrying. Fire pits are an option, but most of them you find on the market weigh heavy and occupy a lot of space; owing to which many campers take to the woods without the equipment. For the good of every camper, Pyro Camp Fire and Grill presents a portable alternative to setting up the fire under the night sky and grill to prepare a sumptuous meal in the wilderness.

Pyro Camp Fire is a portable fire pit constructed chiefly of American steel. It is provided with a grill/griddle extension for enthusiasts who want to create an inviting ambiance by burning wood or charcoal in a safe and clean manner. And when the stomach calls, the top extension can be swapped and you are good to prepare a meal or heat up the precook food on you. Designed by a team of camping and overloading enthusiasts themselves, this portable fire pit has an 18-inch long and 14-inch wide combustion chamber, while the contraption measure 9-inch tall. The entire pit weighs only 14.5 pounds making it appropriate to carry on every camping trail you’re headed for. The standout here is its side-loading system that lets you easily add wood without having to remove the top fire screen or grill.

The lightweight and compact fire pit accommodates up to 16-inch firewood and burns it safely within the combustion chamber covered with a protective mesh of perforated stainless steel. The mesh around the Pyro Camp Fire offers an unobstructed view of fire encircling within, and also provides excellent airflow for complete combustion while containing burning embers safely inside. Pyro Camp Fire includes a removable top fire screen and the ash catcher in the base. While the stainless steel base can be removed for ease of cleaning the ash and debris, the top mesh screen can be removed for open fire experience and swapped with the grill/griddle. The grill cooktop seasons just like cast iron to function as a fantastic cooking surface. The extension includes a cutting board that provides additional prep space.

With Pyro Camp Fire in contention, it’s time to give your camping gear a second thought. If you have been carrying a heavy and outdated fire pit, or don’t have one at all, Pyro should be a nice portable and safe option. Since the fire pit is nicely covered with fire screen all the time, burning embers are controlled within, ensuring even kids can be around it without you having to worry too much. If it interests you, the Camp fire pit retails for $249 and with the grill extension, the price scales up to $349.

This tiny A-frame cabin can be transported anywhere for a spontaneous escape to nature!

Being cooped up indoors as a result of the global pandemic, many of us have been getting creative with new ways of traveling and escaping to cabins in nature. Some of us are road tripping and stopping at peak destinations along the way, some of us are migrating back home for more nostalgic ventures, and then the rest of us are sticking to good, old-fashioned camping. Designed especially to bring people closer to the great outdoors, Bivvi is a modular and transportable A-frame cabin that can either be attached to your car for road trips or to a chosen foundation for permanent placement.

The creators at Bivvi make up a team of travelers and adventure-seekers– they built Bivvi so that we can be too. They set out to build Bivvi after noticing the inherently immobile and expensive nature of cabins and other modes of residence for travelers already on the market. Taking on mobility as their main source of inspiration, each Bivvi Cabin can be attached to a trailer hitch and tow so that they can be transported anywhere. The team behind Bivvi even outfit their A-frame cabins with off-grid capabilities including three 600W AC outlets and a 100W solar panel, so they really do mean anywhere.

Bivvi’s triangular shape measures 8-6’’ wide x 11’-6’’ long and 10’-6’’ tall, providing enough space for a full-sized bed and an optional desk to fit inside the cabin’s interiors, which are paneled in pinewood or plywood, with options for either Douglas fir or birch. The bed can be positioned just underneath the Bivvi Cabin’s triangle picture window, so guests can sleep and nestle as close to nature as possible.

To get even closer to nature, each cabin is also prefabricated in a factory with sustainably sourced materials to maintain eco-friendly building practices. Offering natural ventilation window openings, stained and sealed tongue-and-groove cedar siding, full insulation, locking door hardware, additional porthole windows, and durable metal roofing, a Bivvi Cabin provides all one might need to get away to the great outdoors.

Domino off-road trailer transitions from travel to camp mode on the push of a button





Australian families are catching up to the idea of outdoor adventures with a bespoke camper trailer tagged behind their trucks. Designed for the outdoorsy Aussies, to accommodate an Australian outback, the Offline Campers’ dual-mode off-road camper trailer called the Domino is built on a similar bed as the company’s previous Raker model. The Domino is perfect for small family adventures owing to the trailer’s generous internal + extendable space and quick transition from a day ride to a comfy night sleeper.

Packed with almost everything your family would need on the road, the Offline Campers’ Domino is ruggedized and conceived in the shape of a teardrop trailer. That said, it has more to it than just being a random trailer. It is the brand’s first hard-roofed interior camper with jaw-like rear doors and dual-mode functionality. During the day, Domino rides in the travel mode, and by night, just open its jaws and instantly transport yourself onto the comfy queen-sized mattress (don’t forget to shut the jaws from within) in camp mode.

When you demand some extra space, the Domino allows you to deploy an electric-powered annex tent at the push of a button. Once deployed, it opens up additional two meters of space (with the support of a few tent poles) and still lets you access the bed and the storage underneath it without any hassle. The living space, complete with the installed extension, offers ample camping are for two adults and a child.

For all the camping fun on the road and at the park, the Domino has a slide-out kitchen complete with a flip-out countertop, three burner stove, cooking utensils, fridge, and a storage compartment on the side. Onboard the Domino is a 200Ah lithium battery, an inverter, and rooftop solar panels that support the annex tent’s transition and take care of the other power needs. Starting at AUD 64,400 ($50,000), Offline Campers’ Domino makes for one robust companion that you would want for a big, off-road family adventure!

Camping tents that meet all your modern millennial Glamping needs!

All of us have some fond camping memories from our childhood – snuggling into sleeping bags, roasting and munching on marshmallows, and giggling with our friends as we give someone a toothpaste mustache! Although times have changed since then, and camping has received a massive makeover and a new ferocious nickname – Glamping! Glamping is the new, improved and dazzling version of camping. Gone are the basic little tents and sleeping bags that we spent our nights in – luxurious tents, glamping pods, glamping cabins, and innovative campsites are all a result of the Glamping movement. So, we’ve curated a collection of super comfy, cozy, and advanced camping options that’ll have you itching to make your next getaway a Glamping one!

You can find these unique tents in the Borgloon forest in Belgium if you are looking for a safer alternative to the usual touristy destinations post the pandemic. In fact, it has gained attention only now when people are looking to camp outdoors because it is safer, won’t require you to fly, budget-friendly and avoids the crowds. Designed by the Dutch artist Dre Wapenaar, these ‘Tranendreef’ tree tents blend architecture and sculpture into one functional structure. The tent is suspended above the ground and basically hangs on the tree like fruit. The guests use a ladder to get inside/outside. It can host two adults and two small children. Originally installed as part of a public art project called ‘Pit’ (hence the avocado shape we assume) organized by Z33, it brought art into the public space of Borgloon. The designer also created ‘field furniture’ – seating, washing, toilet, and BBQ units to complete the camping site with the tents.

Camping and caravanning have always been about getting down to the bare necessities of life, living life on the road and at the mercy of the elements. However, New Zealand-based design and architecture firm W2 has decided to help amp up the experience! Their revolutionary trailer design, ‘Romotow’, the name an amalgamation of ‘room to move’ contains all the usual RV features but with an innovative 90-degree twist. With the press of a simple electric button, it swivels open, rotating at 90 degrees, to reveal an open synthetic teak deck. With this, it increases the living space by 70 percent, and the area can also be used as a party deck! Measuring 30 feet by 8.5 feet and offering 290 square feet of living space (the same as a lot of tiny apartments these days), the caravan comes along with a living area, bedroom, kitchenette, and bathroom, all with stylish fixtures and spacious interiors.

Get ready to take a beautiful virtual tour of the O2 Treehouse by Treewalkers that blend the best of our childhood imagination with glamping reality while keeping it all an eco-friendly experience! Treewalkers is one of the leading players in the world of treetop construction – they actually make treehouses that adults cannot reason out of. The treehouses have unique geodesic domes and can be connected to create entire villages. The houses are modular so it enables franchisees to start their own village setups with one or more units – this can be a sustainable hotel, unusual Airbnb getaway, or simply a camping site that offers a different kind of stay. The innovative modular lattice design is what makes this a flexible accommodation — while catering to the individual’s needs and it also allows them to customize details. The units come with a standard bug-proof outer socket, interior furniture, and canvas canopy roofing. As part of the franchise program, hosts have the option to open up their Treewalker to other hosts in exchange for points that can be used towards other stays – sustainable community tourism! There are many intriguing shapes but the most iconic one has to be the A-shaped floating tent because that is something we have all tried to create with a blanket in our living rooms.

Jupe is a portable off-grid shelter that flatpacks so you can pick any spot on the planet and pitch your tent. The futuristic silhouette is inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: Space Odyssey which explains the aluminum pole frame and glowing Firesist fabric exterior which also make it suitable to withstand different climate conditions. The mission was not to make a quick place to stay but to create a gateway to the outside world. It can be assembled in hours and gives you a 111-square foot space featuring tall ceilings, finished Baltic birch wood floors, a queen bed, and a storage area – think something right in the middle of a tiny home and glamping pod. The large entryway doubles up as a window for your chosen scenery which you can endlessly gaze at from your queen-sized bed. The shelter also includes a 200 amp hour battery and solar array with electrical outlets, USB charging stations, dimmable LED lighting system, and a private wi-fi network if you cannot be completely off the grid.

While looking at interesting campsites I found Culture Campsite which was designed by architects to be an urban oasis filled with quirky pods that will give you the escape you’re craving while not ‘wasting’ any resources or time! A team of Dutch designers and artists transformed a concrete parking lot in Rotterdam’s Delfshaven area into a sustainable urban camping ground making it more accessible for people. There is a range of cool architectural cabins to choose from and they are all built using upcycled and waste stream materials. The idea was to show not tell – this way people could experience living in a sustainable structure themselves and find that it can be incorporated into their lifestyle! The pods are all smaller than a tiny house but way more exciting than a tent because of their unique builds and each of them showcases innovative sustainable elements. Every cabin offers a special experience and my favorite one is the Val Ross cabin because it reminds me of the rocket emoji.

The minimal circular cabin is a luxurious treat we deserve! One of Lara’s most exclusive features is a round patio complete with a jacuzzi and a lounging area. While the cabin is envisioned to be set amidst trees to provide privacy, the designer has added a handful of plants to brighten up the woody design of the patio. The white exterior contrasts elegantly with the lush natural location. The tiny cabin’s ground level hosts a sem-circular room with a modern fireplace – the ones where there is a slit in the stone for the flames! It also has a fully functioning bathroom, however, the provisions for a pantry or a small cooking space are missing for now. There is another small seating area just outside the room and the fireplace built inside is also shared by this space through the glass encasement. Even though the glamping pod is small, the sweeping floor-to-ceiling windows make the space look bigger while allowing for natural sunlight and ventilation.

Designed to be portable, adjustable, and modular too, the Beluga easily transforms based on your needs. The tent accommodates two people, although its modular nature allows you to attach multiple tents to each other to create a large camping community. The tent comes with an inner enclosure, held in place using aluminum rods, and covered with an outer cover that helps properly shield you from elements like the rain or even the sun. To help extend the tent’s footprint, the Beluga even comes with an awning that attaches to the entrance, giving you a nice shaded ‘patio’ of sorts right outside your tent. The magic, however, lies in the fact that all these components, the enclosure, clad, and the awning can be used in a variety of ways. The awning and outer clad easily double up as two individual hammocks when you want, or a hammock with its own cover when you’re looking for some shade. You could even set them up as a roofed shelter away from your tent, or even use them as awnings outside your RV or caravan. No matter your camping setup, the Beluga adjusts to give you just the shelter you need… and even if you’re faced with inclement weather or a damp/muddy campsite, the tent itself comes with an elevated entrance, so water or mud never seeps into your enclosure.

This will sound lame but the Hanging Shelter (Hængende Ly in Danish) is actually the literal meaning of hanging out – you see it? It is a lot more than a hammock strung up on trees, in fact, it is a very unique accommodation that has been custom designed using traditional shipbuilding techniques. The enclosed treehouse is nestled 2.5 meters above the ground that offers 360-degree views of the lush green Genner area in Denmark. The only way to get in and out of the Hanging Shelter is via a basic ladder. The structure is constructed with steam-bent oak which forms the curved walls and floor – something that sets it apart from similar tents and is hard to miss! To give it a height there are eight additional arched wood frames that continue to shape the rounded walls vertically. The design team has used a thin, clear membrane to wrap the entire shelter in so that you are protected from different weather conditions and are still able to soak in all the natural greenery Genner has to offer.

The O’Reilly’s campground is nestled in Queensland’s lush Lamington National Park and is an example of how glamping can be eco-friendly if we make the right design choices! The project shines a light on architecture-inspired ecotourism with a fully functioning campsite equipped with all amenities. O’Reilly is different because it was created keeping sustainable building practices at its core so as to not disturb the pristine landscape but at the same time let guests be immersed in it. The campground includes buildings featuring a kitchen, common gathering spaces, a fire pit, and more. All the facilities were carefully constructed by consciously choosing to make it environmentally friendly – lightweight structures used sustainably sourced timber, an on-site sewer treatment to avoid adding waste to natural water bodies, collecting rainwater, having passive solar access, cross-ventilation to reduce power consumption, growing and preserving vegetation and more.

 

We all like a comfortable camping experience once in a while, or to be more millennial, a comfortable glamping experience once in a while! But what about our feline friends? Wouldn’t they like a warm tent to cozy up into? I mean maybe they haven’t ever thought of it…but I’m sure they would enjoy it! Well, the Cat Camp is here! And it’s a mini indoor tent, especially for our cats. It’s quite similar to the mini display tents seen in outdoor shops, and it’s exactly like the larger tents for humans except its tiny…and cuter! 21.5 x 21.5 x 14 inches in size, the Cat Camp is spacious enough to accommodate almost all breeds of cats. A side-zip makes it extremely easy to enter, and it pitches just like a normal tent. Durable and high-quality materials were used to create the tent, ensuring it can withstand your pet’s sharp claws and teeth! Layered with microfiber fleece, the tent is fluffy and warm. You can easily remove the lining whenever it needs cleaning.

This futuristic luxury camper comes with HEPA filters + pet bed for a unique glamping experience!

Whenever I go camping, usually on the walk over from my tent to the campsite’s outhouse, all it takes is the sight of a luxe RV trailer to convince me of investing in one for my next trip. While the unique, sweaty joy that follows waking up in a cozy – if not sweltering hot – tent is irreplaceable, there’s a regal comfort to an RV’s rugged and homelike nature that always seems to outshine the old camping tent. There’s a new RV pulling into the campsite from the team behind Bowlus Road Chief, known as the world’s first aluminum travel trailer, and it’s the debut of their latest luxury RV, the Terra Firma.

For most, RVs are so beloved because they offer the thrill of traveling off-the-grid while catering to the convenience of modern-day amenities like running water and filtered air. Boasting that and so much more, the Terra Firma tailgates Bowlus Road Chief’s Endless Highways Performance Edition, complete with the same 26-foot length body, reflective chrome exterior, in-floor heating system, and large lithium iron phosphate battery pack that allows for a week’s worth of off-grid traveling. On the inside, Terra Firma brings the elegance equal to that found in private jets and newer Tesla models equipped with plenty of high-tech features that meet the needs of even your furry travel companions.

In addition to smart technology that takes care of your doggo, Terra Firma features HEPA Air Filters with UVC to ensure you and your party are always breathing clean air no matter where the road takes you. The team at Bowlus Road Chief was sure to also include an embedded water filtration system that utilizes carbon filters through a two-stage filtration process, assuring travelers that they can look forward to clean, fresh drinking water after each hike. GPS tracking also runs through Terra Firma, allowing travelers to share their RV’s location and trip status with chosen users for an extra sense of security.

Lastly, whether you’d like to bring your cat or dog along for the trip, Terra Firma includes a built-in, personalized pet bed, along with pull-out food and water bowls. If your pup is ever too tired to join you at your side for a good hike, with Pet-Flex remote temperature monitoring, you can head up the mountain assured that sure your pets are safe and happy. Terra Firma is spacious enough to provide plenty of storage options, a tuckaway dog bed, and a master bedroom situated in the iconic curved end of the cabin, so let’s just ditch the tent already.

This trailer comes equipped with a 360-degrees rotating hitch to keep you off-grid for seven days

During the pandemic, there has been a considerable demand for safe options to get into the outdoors while maintaining the social distancing norms. When hotels remained closed, and the conventional form of tourism was brought to a standstill, there was a considerable rise in the demand for RV, campers, and travel trailers. This demand saw camping trailers with the ability to keep inhabitants off-the-grid fly of the shelf in no time. No wonder then, Taxa Outdoors is making all possible commitment to cater to this demand with a significant revamp to its overloading trailers led by the all new TigerMoth Overland.

The new trailers keep with the Taxa Outdoors’ philosophy of delivering adventure vehicles that can safely and efficiently get the outdoorsy off-the-grid and pamper them in substantial luxury. The company has four towable trailers it calls “mobile human habitats” and the updated lineup for 2021 sees three revamped overland editions. These overhauled overland edition trailers – the Mantis, Cricket, and TigerMoth (all overland models) – have the equipment and forte to take habitants to isolated and remote locations.

The improvement to 2020 Mantis, the new Mantis Overland features improved air conditioning and its kitchen has been updated for better facilities on the move. The more economical Cricked Overland edition is inspired by NASA and has been designed to accommodate two adults and two children. It now has an increased ground clearance, which is also a feature in the TigerMoth Overland. Priced at $24,950, the Tiger Moth Overland is the least expensive of the lot and it comes with an optional air conditioning unit, features a new 360-degree rotating hinge, upgraded suspension, and a pull-out kitchen.

TigerMoth Overland edition, Taxa Outdoors notes, is a habitat built for adventuring. In that accord, the ground clearance of the trailer is increased with the Timbren 2200lbs axles-less suspension. The Overlanding trailer with a dry weight of 1,458 lbs, has a number of premium accessories onboard necessary for those venturing off-road. TigerMoth has been designed to sleep up to three people using an optional roof tent extension and it can, thanks to the electrical solar, and water systems, stay off-grid for up to seven days.

Another interesting aspect of the trailer is its articulating lock n’ roll hitch, which utilizes “360 degrees of rotation and 3 axis movement,” giving more freedom of movement necessary in unpaved roads. With the higher suspension, off-road capable hitch, and 5.5-square foot pull-out kitchen (complete with two-burner stovetop), the TigerMoth Overland is an appropriate off-grid camping trailer for adventurists in 2021.

BMW is associated with luxury, not with adventure but this concept really turns the brand image on its head to give us a sporty yet sleek coupe camper. To accommodate the trailer, the designer has taken out the backseat from the car and optimized for time off the grid. The vehicle is a 500 horsepower single-bed camper. The interiors include all elements ideally needed for a road trip – a bed, a pair of solar panels, and a kitchenette. The suspension has been lifted and the tires have been replaced with robust BFGoodrich ones which makes it ready to take the road less traveled.

W2 Architecture’s revolutionary trailer design, Romotow, the name an amalgamation of ‘room to move’ contains all the usual RV features but with an innovative 90-degree twist.

Measuring 30 feet by 8.5 feet and offering 290 square feet of living space (the same as a lot of tiny apartments these days), the caravan comes along with a living area, bedroom, kitchenette, and bathroom, all with stylish fixtures and spacious interiors.

The Z-Triton Electric Houseboat was created as a vehicle that could serve as an alternative to the traditional camper. It is comfortable enough to house two adults for a weekend getaway and the choice of land or water is up to the travelers. The amphibious nature of the modern camper fits into the flexible lifestyle we lead today, especially since air travel is not on the cards anytime soon it is opening up a lot of avenues for local trips in less popular/offbeat locations. The durable houseboat measures 3.6 meters in length, 1.2 meters in width, and 1.55 meters in height.

Nissan NV350 Caravan Office Pod Concept is your ticket to freedom when it comes to working productively after witnessing the most mesmerizing sunset from your favorite picturesque location on the outskirts of the city or maybe even on an adventure trip. The mobile office pod housed inside the back of the electric van is something you’ll be so desperate to jump right into. In ways, it can rival the most jaw-dropping work from home setups without a semblance of doubt. The smartphone-controlled office pulls out from the back of the van out in the open and is for sure a dope for people who love working amidst natural settings. When you’ve worked enough for the day or simply want to take a short break between work, just climb on top of the luxurious roof balcony with a rooftop deck for relaxing in style.

The Solo 01 was inspired by the designer’s own dream to travel the world and own a house – a dilemma everyone in this generation can relate to. It is a compact 6 x 6 feet space that includes all necessities that a person needs to turn a house into a home they can comfortably live in. It is the perfect modern home on wheels for the solo adventurer, “This ingenious small space design transforms a customized 3 wheeler into a comfy mobile home/commercial space. We’ve maximized the total area to give you value that isn’t minimalist but fully utilitarian. The concept is the fruit of research into actual needs; we’ve outwitted complex challenges with simple solutions” says Arun while describing his project.

The camping trailer is made from composite aluminum on the outside and comes complete with a bathroom, a kitchenette, dining cum sleeping area, and lots of skylights to ensure the compact interiors are well lit throughout the day and present a panoramic view by the night.

The all-terrain Mink 2.0 Sports Camper focuses on minimalism while not sacrificing on functionality and quality of built – making it a good option for people who long for infinite freedom. While the camper may look small from the outside it makes use of the interior space quite well. The camper has an expansive panoramic viewing roof balanced out by the contoured windows on each side for enjoying nature’s grandeur en route to an adventure trip. For sound sleep, there is a bunk bed that doubles as extra storage space and has a queen size comfy mattress. To stay clear of cold weather during the night time one can go for the additional oil and solar-powered heating system. What personally appeals to me is the pop of yellow that makes this trailer stand out from the crowd of greys – appealing to the millennial-friendliness of this design!

The Scout camper features lightweight composite sandwich-panel construction and starts with the Compact model, which is the smallest livable module measuring 65cm wide and 1.44m long when folded. The Scout Compact unfolds to 60x190cm giving a rider just enough space to lie down. The Scout Center is slightly larger with a sleeping space of 90x190cm, other dimensions are nearly similar with a width measuring 95cm when folded. The Comfort is the most spacious variant but is planned for launch in the future. The trailer will measure 95cm wide and 1.64m long and should be able to transform into a two-man shelter with a 120x200cm playing field. Interestingly, the campers also offer a small covered tent with standing height. Attached to the main Scout body with a canvas supported by telescoping poles. This area either serves as an entryway awning or transforms into a tent with optional waterproof canvas draped around the sides.
