TLDR: The Carsule Pop-Up Cabin attaches to your vehicle to serve as a comfortable and spacious outdoor living room.
There’s a rustic charm to camping out, pitching a tent and sleeping in the great outdoors. But be honest…if you could actually sleep and enjoy the convenience of your own personal cabin in place of that tent, you’d ditch those tentpoles in a heartbeat.
Assuming you don’t have the resources to build a personal cabin anywhere you’d like to make camp for the night, the Carsule Pop-Up Cabin ($299.99, 20 percent off, from TNW Deals) is the next best thing, turning a vehicle into a portable living room in the outdoors for sleeping and relaxing in comfort.
Successfully funded via Kickstarter, the Carsule packs down to less than 3 feet across for easy transport, then attaches right on the swing-up rear tailgate of many cars, SUVs, minivans, and more for easy setup anywhere. Once fully unfurled in less than 5 minutes, the Carsule is like attaching a 6 sq. ft. room to the back of your vehicle.
Using the tailgate and a few aluminum beams for support, this cozy, waterproof living space is big enough to sleep up to four or tall and wide enough to stand, set up a table, eat a meal, read, or even work virtually anywhere you can park your vehicle.
While tents are cramped and confined, the Carsule employs mesh siding and large windows so you can always enjoy the view while air circulates easily through the space. With durable waterproof thick felt flooring, integrated mosquito netting, UV protective coating, and other features, it’s an absolute step-up from the bare necessities of a small tent.
The Carsule is modular, so it can be attached to other Carsule units to create even larger spaces. With a guy rope attached, the Carsule is even sturdy enough to stand on its own with a vehicle or to withstand a strong breeze.
Right now, the Carsule Pop-Up Cabin is available at $80 off its regular price, down to just $299.99.
