Officially unveiled in November 2019, the Cybertruck instantly proved to be one extremely divisive vehicle. Then, as its unique, angular and, some say, ugly aesthetics started to grow on even the harshest critics, it spawned countless renderings, fan-art and concepts of similar or related products that Tesla could make or, better said, that fans wanted to see made.
The Cyber Camper is one of them, and we’ll be discussing it today. It originally emerged online in March this year, but for whatever reason, it’s only now that it’s getting increased traction. Just in time for autoevolution’s Tesla Month, a virtual, all-things-Tesla party we’re throwing. Everyone’s invited.
It comes in double configuration, solo and duo, with the difference being, of course, the number of people it sleeps inside. The Cyber Camper is made of the same stainless steel alloy as the rest of the truck and would offer a tougher, more comfortable and reliable alternative to a pop-up tent.
“So I'm liking something a bit larger, like this insert camper that you can add to the vault of the Cybertruck,” joeguy07 says in the description. “These renders need work, but I want something in the vault so no need to tow and can travel almost anywhere all the time. So hope that there will be a camper style like this by Tesla or 3rd party companies that would be amazing.”
Considering the specs on the all-electric truck, it makes sense to want to use it for overlanding and not just the usual work you put pickups to. With all-wheel drive (except on the single-motor option), adjustable air suspension that provides up to 16 inches (40.6 cm) of ground clearance, ability to haul 3,500 pounds (1,587 kg) in the 6.5-foot (198-cm) cargo bed, and an estimated driving range of up 500 miles (804.6 km) on a single charge, and a scratch- and dent-resistant body, this thing begs to be taken on such adventures.
A built-in camper in the back seems a logical choice. But it’s probably not the best.
What good is a solid shelter in the post-apocalyptic world if you can't drive fast or far enough to escape the zombies?
