A California start-up has unveiled designs for a wedge-style camping attachment that turns Tesla's Cybertruck into a "swiss army knife".

Space Camper's $24,000 robust add-on offers 'limitless' customisation to Elon Musk's elusive vehicle. The camper section sits into the bed of the pickup and includes a large roof that can open up to provide up to 8 feet (2.4 meters) of standing space.

Once erected, the Space Camper reveals built-in steps that allow for what seems to be easy access inside, where it has a detachable fold-down bed that can be turned into a sofa with an adjustable backrest and a small sink and storage spaces.

The camper runs on Tesla's battery pack and also taps into the onboard air compressor to pop its roof in seconds. All available electrical equipment, including the induction cooktop, fridge/freezer, water heater, interior and exterior lighting, and power outlets, will run off the truck's hefty battery pack, as Tesla aims to provide a range of up to 500 miles (805 km).

The camper's interior is very flexible with the various additions that can be included. A modular ecosystem with add-ons like a kitchen, outdoor bathroom, and solar-tripling rooftop charging system promises multifunctional performance.

The camper has illumination, four electrical outlets, as well as USB charging, an adjustable awning, and even a keyless entry for the rear hatch. The camper comes with a built-in exhaust vent to keep the interior pleasant when cooking.

Space Campers also offer solar panels on the roof that can be integrated into a custom roof rack, an additional tent thermal insulation kit, custom sheets, electric blanket, thermal padded flooring, and even a built-in movie projector.

On the outside, a shower enclosure would deploy from a rack-mounted case and provide privacy for the hot/cold shower and portable toilet.

The estimated base weight of the camper will be 470 lb (213 kg), but it is ultimately waiting on final Cybertruck specs to finalise its design and spec sheet.
