Let's face it, there are countless RV manufacturers in America, but few modern crews have been able to influence the industry as much as nuCamp. This time around, they're at it again, unveiling their first fully fiberglass camper, and as you know, these things are nearly indestructible. This one should ensure the nuCamp name is never forgotten.
A few days ago, I received an e-mail from nuCamp's marketing group informing me that there are only a few days left until nuCamp officially unveils its newest addition to its family, the Barefoot. Soon after, I began to frantically search for information revealing what we'll be in for; I found absolutely nothing except for three images, but I couldn't stop there.

So, I asked Google to reveal all it knows about nuCamp's Barefoot, and to my surprise, there has been coverage on this soon-to-be-released travel trailer. I found a few YouTube channels that saw this trinket in the flesh at RV shows last year and earlier this year. Why the hold-up? It may have a lot to do with this manufacturer crafting the perfect machine; R & D takes time, and RV exhibitions are a great place to gather feedback on a machine.

Now, the information I've gathered is only from these sneak-peek videos, so bear with me if some of what I mention doesn't make it into the final product. According to We're the Russos, one source of the info I present here today, the Barefoot is a one-piece fiberglass camper. This means the shell you see is crafted without seams. As a result, it should be a master at keeping the elements out of your home.

Clearly, this design is meant to attract customers and lovers of on-road living, and to do that, nuCamp went with a retro look, a trait we see more and more of these days, history may very well be repeating itself. Other fiberglass camper manufacturers, mainly Canadian, also follow a similar shape, resulting in the Boler and Trillium habitats.

The rest of the body features aluminum accents, vintage stopping lights, and some storage options are integrated into the body too, including that nose-cone container, perfect for a spare tire and gas tanks. Sadly, mounting a bike or roof rack seems out of the question. Maybe nuCamp integrates something into the chassis; the younger generations are explorers.

As for the interior of the Barefoot, I feel the manufacturer did one hell of a job partitioning the spaces used for daily and nightly activities. At the front of the Barefoot, a large dinette is also the place where you'll rest your head at night, while a galley block is neatly adjoined at the foot of your bed and sitting on the port wall. A cooktop, fridge, and storage are available. The rear of this rolling cave is reserved for nothing more than a large fiberglass bathroom fitted with a shower and toilet. A sink is also integrated into the construction, all fiberglass by the looks of it.

What I personally enjoyed about this construction is that nuCamp spared no expense in filling your mobile home with tons of natural light. By the looks of it, there's LED lighting, but the countless windows all around are sure to keep the outside world in view, even if you choose to just sit around in bed with nothing more than a cup of tea or coffee in hand.

As for features and essentials that future owners may need to explore the world without being dependent on the grid, I couldn't find anything in the videos below. But you can be sure that if nuCamp doesn't equip the Barefoot with solar power or batteries, you can bet they will at least integrate a connection port or two for you so you can grab aftermarket gear and put it to good use. There are more than enough storage options, both inside and outside, to ensure you have what you need for an extended weekend in the middle of nowhere.

Regarding pricing, we have to wait until December 10th, 2022, and all will be revealed, including juicier images showing us just the sort of lifestyle we can lead with the Barefoot travel trailer. In all honesty, you should already be able to imagine your life with one of these eye-catching mobile turtle shells.
