In a significant advancement for the electric vehicle (EV) and recreational vehicle (RV) industries, CAMP365 has introduced the T Model Truck Bed Camper, a game-changing addition to their innovative lineup. This new model, announced on November 7, 2023, specifically caters to the burgeoning market of electric pickup owners, offering a solution that minimally impacts vehicle range while maximizing comfort and utility.

The T Model, proudly made in the USA, is compatible with popular electric trucks like the Rivian R1, Ford Lightning, Tesla Cybertruck, and other mid-size pickups. Weighing between 700-800 pounds based on options, it is notably lightweight and aerodynamic, setting a new benchmark in the pickup-camper category. Unlike conventional campers that can reduce a vehicle’s range by nearly 50% with an 8,000 pound payload, the T Model’s sleek design results in an estimated range reduction of just 5-10%, a significant improvement that addresses one of the main concerns of EV owners.

When folded, the camper measures approximately 4′ x 7′, fitting comfortably in a truck bed and easily stored in standard residential garages. In minutes, it unfolds into a spacious interior of 63 square feet, offering a 9′ x 7′ area with 6’8″ headroom, comfortably sleeping 4-5 people. The T Model’s patented technology enables easy loading and unloading by a single person in about 10 minutes.

The camper’s features reflect CAMP365’s commitment to quality and innovation. The T Model boasts a folding queen, twin, or bunk comfort system, a 24-gallon water tank, hot water shower, sink, faucet, toilet, and an induction cook-top. Its all-electric setup is solar-ready, and it includes electric heat and A/C.

Additional amenities include 75″ of dry storage, a large lockable bed storage drawer, exterior racks suitable for e-bikes, bikes, or kayaks/paddleboards, two side awnings, and Starlink internet access.

Kevin McGregor, CEO of CAMP365, expressed pride in the T Model’s modular design, noting its spaciousness and minimal impact on vehicle range. This innovation continues CAMP365’s legacy, which began with the world’s first fold-out cabin camper in 2018.

Manufactured in Iowa and Minnesota, the T Model starts at $25,000, with reservations available for a $100 fully-refundable deposit. Production is set to commence in early summer 2024.

CAMP365 has established itself as a leader in the outdoor and recreational industry since its inception. Its commitment to quality, functionality, and innovative design has yielded a product line that integrates seamlessly with the modern adventurer’s lifestyle. Holding over 17 patents, CAMP365 offers a range of made-in-the-USA campers, including towable, truck bed, and emergency response models.
