A couple turns a truck into the most unique camper ever
This German couple took a sleeper cab and converted it into their campervan.
Before its facelift, the MAN TGX had one simple mattress behind the driver’s seat.
It now has an electric lift bed, a balcony and even a shower.
Manuela and Peters’ parents decided to combine their love of all things cars with a new challenge.
They call it the Tiny Truck Camper Project.
First, they purchased a MAN TGX as the base for their vision.
They couldn’t find a trailer the size they wanted, so they bought a 7.5m trailer and cut it down to 3m.
Now the space has been transformed into a beautiful and cozy home away from home.
Their newest addition to the truck was the porch.
Adding the roof to the back of the truck gave them 3 metres² More floor space, which is huge by wagon standards.
The couple also replaced the standard chairs with padded ones.
The main area is now also lined with a stylish, modern table cabinet, made with the help of IKEA, the DIY lover’s best friend.
Here they cook their meals, with a view out the window of whatever part of the German countryside they have stopped by that day.
There is also a TV and ample storage space hidden underfoot.
The bed is placed on an electric lift, and is slowly lowered by pressing a switch until it rests on top of the kitchen table.
The couple made the bed themselves with a slatted base and double mattress.
But perhaps the most impressive achievement in this construction is their bathroom.
Although the room is small, it is fully tiled and equipped with stylish modern fixtures.
With a water heating system and rain shower head, this is a DIY camping shower like you’ve never seen before.
At first glance, you will wonder where the toilet is located.
Pulling out the drawer reveals it, neatly hidden under the sink.
Although we’re not sure how the actual sewer system works here, it’s a pretty ingenious design.
The couple has been on the road with their Tiny Truck Camper recently, taking it around the Netherlands and Luxembourg as well.
The best part?
Tiny Truck Camper fits perfectly into a regular parking spot.
