Making use of a pick-up truck’s platform for camping purposes is an old trick, but a startup called Leentu believes it has a winning proposition. Leentu has designed a compact, light-weight camping system for Toyota pick-up trucks.
Certain types of trips to the great outdoors require that you have both a tent and a way of moving along rivers, lakes or the sea. The fewer products you have to carry, the happier camper you are. A company called Traft is trying something new. They have created a two-in-one product, a tent-raft, that floats so that it can be paddled, and it doubles as a dry-land tent.
A large, inflatable tent that you can setup in 90 seconds. It sounds incredible, but it really seems to work. A comfortable, fully equipped tent with beds is ready for use so quickly. The thing is that it is not your ordinary tent that you carry along, but a tent that travels on its own platform.
