This camper pod expands to three times its size

There’s no denying that we’re in the middle of a “tiny home” revolution, with more and more people opting for off-the-grid housing to break away from the daily grind. However, a new French startup company called Tipoon is taking that concept one step further.

Rather than tow a cumbersome and top-heavy caravan on your next camping adventure, or drive a large RV, you can now invest in a compact yet spacious “pod” that feature’s all life’s necessities and more.

It’s an insulated poly-composite pod which expands at the hit of a button to head height and has room for up to four people comfortably.

However, Tipoon hasn’t done anything by halves. You can enjoy a sleek and slim kitchen with a bench, sink, and stove, as well as the option for a 50-liter fridge and water heater.

Tipoon is still in the finalization of development, so some elements are likely to be changed and the price is not precisely defined, but it will be between 20,000 € and 25,000 € ($22,700 – $28,400), depending on the level of equipment chosen (trailer included).
