ioCamper truck—An amazing, expandable truck camper

You have to see the ioCamper truck in action to believe it because this is unlike any other truck camper you’ve ever seen.

Once at camp, the ioCamper truck, like magic, unfolds, expands, and transforms in under 15 minutes to give it the interior look, space, and functionality of a travel trailer that sleeps 4-5 people. When it’s time to go, it folds up again and appears as an ordinary truck camper.

When closed and driving down the road, the ioCamper measures almost 14 feet long from the front overhang to the back wall. But when expanded, the length increases to more than 19 feet and increases the interior living space by approximately 30 percent.

The ioCamper truck is made from the latest fiberglass-reinforced PE material with high-density insulation materials and can be mounted on any dual-cab pickup truck.

Thanks to special double rubber and silicone seals and properly designed joints, the ioCamper’s structure is completely waterproof and windproof.

This unique RV is available as a fully appointed model that’s ready to use right out the door, or as a shell only for those who want to build out their own RV interiors. Even so, the shell version still includes a double bed, a lockable door, roof ventilation, and windows.

The full model is a stylish RV that in no way resembles most camper trucks. It features:

  • A kitchen with hot plate, sink, and a small refrigerator/freezer
  • Dining table
  • A small bathroom with sink, shower, and toilet.
  • Double bed
  • Twin sofas that convert to single beds
  • Screened windows with blackout shades
  • Rooftop ventilation
  • 12-volt battery power
  • LED lighting
  • USB sockets
  • Large storage compartments below and above
  • 50L fresh water tank

ioCamper is a small company whose products are distributed by Richter-Manufaktur of Germany.

The company’s website advertises “worldwide distribution.”  However, when I communicated with Michael Richter, he admitted they are still looking for dealers in the USA and Canada (so if any RV dealers reading are looking for a new RV line to add to your inventory, check it out).

Wow! Thank you, Cheri!

Where was all the furnishings stored before opening the rear extension? All that open area while setting up is bound to attract many mosquitoes to deal with later. As others have noted being tied to the truck without the ability to use the truck for transportation would suck. As with most German over engineered products, great ideas but lacking common sense, maybe across the big pond they go camping to enjoy the outdoors, but here in the USA we go camping, sightseeing, and of course shopping.

Very similar to the A frame trailers. But to make it truely usable it would need front landing legs so you could unload it to go exploring.

And the rear legs don’t look too robust…

My thoughts exactly. It looks beautiful but I wonder about wind and how long it would
be before those side panels loosened and leaked. I would definitely want to be able to
suspend it on its own supports to still have access to my truck to tour around wherever I am.
But the concept is great and the look is clean and modern. Love it!
