Hate it or love it, the controversial Tesla Cybertruck will begin production later this year, and Tesla is currently taking reservations that require a $100 down payment. (That is, Tesla’s says the Cybertruck is coming—but maybe don’t hold it to 2021—what with the company’s history of missing big new model introduction timelines.) Either way, the Cybertruck is nigh, and with the growing hunger for the great outdoors we are witnessing, it was only a matter of time before someone designed a camper for Tesla’s Blade Runner-inspired electric pickup truck.
We present to you the electric CyberLandr, a retractable camper that provides future Cybertruck owners all things essential to life on the go. This futuristic in-bed camper comes equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, and office and can transform into a bedroom and living room in seconds.
The best part about the expandable CyberLandr camper is that it completely disappears when stowed away within the Cybertruck’s bed. And because its functionality allows the tonneau cover and tailgate to close, it helps maintain the stock pickup’s center of gravity and won’t impact its aerodynamic drag. What’s more, the camper’s additional mass has a minimal effect on the range (it is estimated to reduce range by five percent), does not obstruct outward visibility (beyond the Cybertruck’s nonexistent rear visibility), and an available dolly makes it easy to remove from the bed. Dry weight stands at 1,200 lbs; wet bumps that up to 1,360 lbs. The camper holds 40 gallons of fresh water and 20 gallons of gray water.
The built-in kitchen features a tri-level sink with a colander, wash bin, and drying rack; there also is a cutting board and the drawers open and close automatically. Because tech, the sink features an intelligent faucet that can be touchlessly operated by voice control or used manually. Other goodies include a porcelain countertop with over five square feet of working space, an invisible induction cooktop, and a compressor fridge.
Need to get some work done? A set of plush free-standing chairs made out of high-density foam with pivoting tables have you covered. You can connect to high-speed wireless internet (requiring a paid subscription) via the Starlink satellite dish. At this point, most of us have had more than our fair share of Zoom meetings. If you must attend a meeting, though, the 32-inch Smart TV works like a second monitor and connects either by a cable or wirelessly using Apple AirPlay 2.
In the mood for some relaxation or need to catch up on sleep? The reclining office chairs transform into a comfortable RV queen bed and are also removable when you need to use them outside at sunset. Dual pane windows with electrochromic dimming provide additional privacy, and a surround sound system can stream your favorite meditation music. There is sleeping capacity to accommodate two adults and two children.
After a long day of hiking or cycling, a soothing cold shower is rewarding. The bathroom—yes, there is one—has a spa-style shower head with five flow patterns, a heated one-piece porcelain floor, and a self-cleaning dry flush toilet. A toilet that cleans itself means there is no black water tank or cassette to empty. And you don’t need to worry about running out of water thanks to the recirculating shower and an onboard four-stage water filtration system with UV sterilization. This filter system guarantees clean drinking water no matter the source, whether from a stream or lake.
The CyberLandr features voice-activated home automation, a 360-degree view surveillance system, and motion sensing exterior lighting for added security. The automation technology allows you to control the lights, climate, and electrochromic dimming via voice commands. It also has an accompanying smartphone app to adjust settings remotely and to deploy and stow the camper. Additionally, the CyberLandr has 500-watt solar panels that also replenish the Cybertruck’s batteries and supports over-the-air (OTA) updates. All equipment comes standard, and there are no extra cost options.
Besides traditional camping and overlanding use, the CyberLandr is ideal for tailgating at sporting events, attending kids’ soccer matches, and nearly any destination your adventurous spirit desires.
You can reserve the CyberLandr now, and if you do so during the launch promotion, it can save you a whopping $10,000 while supplies last. This promotion is limited to 20 orders and requires a $5,000 down payment for the discounted price of $39,995. It is worth noting that there are other incremental discounts, each one with limited quantities. When all promotions are exhausted, the price increases to $49,995—higher than some of the prices Tesla is promising for the Cybertruck itself.
For those pursuing the ultimate adventure, CyberLandr offers an innovative way to bring the comfort of home on the road and go anywhere. If you want to explore uncharted territory without the extra work of hauling a camper trailer, the CyberLandr is the right weapon of choice–if you are a Tesla Cybertruck owner, of course. As a photojournalism professor once said, the best camera is the one you always have with you, which we figure applies equally to campers.
