A small tuning studio Modern Classic Rides has turned an old Volkswagen Beetle hatchback into a vehicle that combines the functions of a truck and a RV. According to the Motor1 edition, the Beetle cargo platform is capable of carrying a tent, which can accommodate two adults.
The tent is based on an aluminum frame, which, in turn, is attached to the cargo platform of the pickup truck. Setting up and assembling the tent takes only five minutes, and for transportation, all its components are packed in a relatively small box.
- The tent can be supplied with electricity: the design provides for a 12-volt socket, a USB port for charging gadgets and an LED "chandelier". Electrical devices are connected to the vehicle's power system. The specifications of the pickup itself in Modern Classic Rides are not disclosed.
- The head of Modern Classic Rides, Stephen Goodfellow, has developed a pickup-camper based on the "Beetle" for those who like to spend the night in nature, but prefer the most compact solutions. At the same time, a more extreme version of the truck is in the process of being created: with a diesel engine, ground clearance increased by 50 mm and off-road tires. In addition to a tent, such a "camper" will also be equipped with a refrigerator and a stove for cooking.
"Beetles" are being transformed into pickups by another American company - Smyth Performance. At the beginning of the year, the company released a kit kit with which you can turn a hatch into a truck yourself.
