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.
Both models have been built using composite materials that allow light weight but are tough and durable, suitable for outdoors. When the popup camper is packed for driving, it follows the vehicle’s outer lines, causing minimal extra draft.
Think of a tent instead of a campervan
The Leentu popup campers resemble the concept of a tent rather than spaces and rooms that you can find in purpose-built campervans or motorhomes. When the Leentu camper is unpacked, it provides space upwards and stretches over the vehicle roof as well.
That’s where the sleeping compartment for two travelers is located: on the roof, extending towards the back of the truck.
Solar panel is included in the high-end model that helps modern adventurers to stay away from civilization and electric outlets a little bit longer. The camper has power outlets for charging mobile devices.
Other than that, features are minimal, but these campers have been designed for adventurers who can survive without all modern conveniences.
Leentu is a startup that is about to start production and shipping the products to customers in the US.
The video clip below shows how the Leentu tent structure pops up at the back of the truck.
