In mid-July, Elon Musk announced on the service formerly known as Twitter the completion of the first production Cybertruck, according to a report by C.C. Weiss at NewAtlas.com.
With a backlog of reservation holders, there’s bound to be some pent-up demand for accessories and upgrades, something the existing aftermarket can’t meet because of the truck’s “unique” dimensions. We’ve already seen a number of compatible accessories and campers, but they’ve all existed as renderings yet to meet reality. Space Campers changes that by presenting a prototype Wedge camper that levels out the Cybertruck’s awkward bed, airs into overnight form and uses modular components to create a versatile base camp in a small footprint.
Space Campers equips its prototype Wedge pop-up topper to a Cybertruck bed mockup to show how it will level out the sloped sides of the bed to create a flat sleeping platform. That platform features modular interior panels that can be adjusted into different configurations, including a double bed and a lounger for upright sitting.
The high-peaked Wedge roof provides 8 full feet (2.4 m) of standing height inside the pickup bed, when the sleeping platform is bed lifted out of the way, and plenty of headroom over the sleeping platform. The tall fabric sidewalls and door offer generous amounts of mesh for ventilation. The ceiling is lined with what looks like bamboo and features an array of inset LED lighting.
Instead of the self-contained gas struts commonly used on pop-up roofs, Space Campers’ struts tap into Tesla’s onboard air compressor for dial-operated automated opening, a process that takes mere seconds. Space Campers is also designing the camper to work with the truck’s keyless tailgate locking system for fast, easy security.
Space Camper’s short preview video also shows how the roll-up weatherproof storm door doubles as a large awning, setting up with help from collapsible support poles. What it doesn’t show is any modular components being set up inside or out, but the company does reiterate that the sleeping panels will double as tables and benches and that it will offer available accessories such as a kitchen, outdoor shower/bathroom, insulation and solar power.
