The $69,500 attachment called Form that turns a Tesla Cybertruck into a micro-home

It’s camping, but not as we know it.

Future Tesla Cybertruck owners have the opportunity to transform their vehicles into a micro home on wheels thanks to an amazing attachment. Although it’s not cheap.

US company Form Camper has designed a fully detachable accessory for £ 51,824 ($ 69,500) for Mr Musk’s much-lauded truck, which comes with a shower, double bed, kitchen and living area.

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, first unveiled the Cybertruck in November 2019 and is known to have smashed two of the vehicle’s “bulletproof” windows during its launch.

The prototype hit the streets of Manhattan in May of this year and resulted in hundreds of New Yorkers lining up outside the Tesla showroom for a rare glimpse.

Speaking to shareholders at Tesla’s annual meeting last month, Musk said the vehicle would go into “series production” in 2023, not 2022 as originally forecast.

Musk said “multiple supply chain bottlenecks” were causing the delay, with prices in the US being set at around £ 29,839 ($ 40,000) to £ 52,225 ($ 70,000).

The body of the all-electric truck is based on a 1976 Musk Lotus Esprit sports car from 2013, and the rest of the design is inspired by vehicles in Blade Runner, Mad Max, Back to the Future and Alien.

The camping accessory called “Form” – the idea of ​​a group of industrial designers and engineers from California – is pushed into the cargo area of ​​the Cybertruck and can be folded up until activated.

A rendered video of the design shows the attachment opening and protruding from the truck bed. Tent-like nylon awnings emerge from both sides of the vehicle, creating a porch space.

Inside, the bed can be converted into a single or double bed with hidden storage space, as desired. Campers sleep on a memory foam mattress under a vaulted blanket.

The camper has a Nebia shower and a compact cassette toilet with a portable tank. The toilet area is separated from the rest of the motorhome by a curtain and when not in use the toilet area is transformed into a padded bench.

For eating, campers can use the Dometic fridge and stove as well as the “high-end cookware” in the kitchen.

Part of the kitchen is external, with a sink and cutlery drawer sitting under the awning, and a folding chair and table have been incorporated into the furnishings.

Solar panels are integrated into the design and offer 400 watts of power. The camper has a total of 6.7 m² of space – 3.5 m² of which is at the level of the loading area.

According to manufacturers, it will have a dry weight of around 1,000 pounds (454 kilos), which affects the truck’s range by less than five percent.

Not only is the attachment compatible with the Cybertruck – it’s designed to work with most pick-up trucks like the Ford F-150 or the Chevrolet Silverado.

The company describes the attachment as a “modern hassle free camper” and adds that the “shape is spacious, light and solar powered”.

The idea for the design came up a year before Musk first introduced the Cybertruck.

The makers of Form Camper bought a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and began to imagine how they could turn it into a motorhome.

Form Camper told MailOnline Travel: “This process gave us an insight into the great possibilities of a camper.

“Sprinter RVs generally cost well over the six-figure range and if you aren’t willing to make a living from your van permanently, most of them will end up having limited use.

“That led us to believe that there are ways to modernize and make the camper experience more flexible and enjoyable.”

The ‘Form’ attachments are sent direct to the buyer’s home address. Form Camper predicts that the first models will be shipped “in the second half of 2022”.

The “Form” is not the only attachment that is supposed to give the Cybertruck a camping twist. In April, the “CyberLandr” was unveiled by founders Lance King and Bill French.

This is a non-detachable attachment that is installed in the cargo bed. The design includes underfloor heating, WiFi and a sink with a voice-operated tap.

Elon Musk seems to agree – in July he did tweeted that it was “cool”.
