The VW Camper Van tent is a officially licensed 1:1 Scale replica tent of the iconic 60′s VW Transporter. Whilst seemingly a leftfield idea 40,000 people have already ‘liked’ the VW Camper Van tent on Facebook so we may be seeing a few of these in our favourite campsites this season.
Created by The Monster Factory and sold by Firebox.com the VW Camper Tent is a 4 man tent that will make you stand out amongst the more traditional campers this summer. With original vans fetching up to £25,000 this may be the closest many of us get to a night in a VW Camper. The tent is available in red, yellow and blue and has two rooms with the tent doors even positioned to open like the original VW Camper Van doors.
There is 182cm of headroom and the tent weighs in at a credible 12.5kg.
Retro camping a go-go
“We are incredibly excited about the VW Camper Van Tent”, says Ryan Collins, Head of Buying at Firebox.com “Not only is it on trend, with the 1970s already taking over summer fashion, but we believe there will be a huge appetite for retro themed camping products. In fact, we predict the VW camper tents will become as iconic as the van itself.”
We’re tickled by the VW Camper Van Tent, it’s not going to replace your favourite Outwell but if you’re looking for something to take to a festival or want to stand out amongst the ‘cool campers’ in their tasteful teepees then the VW Camper Tent could be for you. If you don’t like it, just chill (man).
