RVelectricity – Just Ask Mike (J.A.M.): Cybertruck pop-up camper?

Welcome to my J.A.M. (Just Ask Mike) Session, a weekly column where I answer your basic electrical questions. If you’re a newbie who’s never plugged in a shore power cord (or ask – what’s a shore power cord?), or wonder why your daughter’s hair dryer keeps tripping the circuit breaker, this column is for you. Send your questions to Mike Sokol at mike (at) noshockzone.org with the subject line – JAM. This week I talk briefly about the Tesla Cybertruck CyberLandr.


Dear Mike,
I saw this custom pop-up camper late last night that’s mounted on a Tesla Cybertruck. Do you know anything about it? —Sleepless in Sacramento

Dear Sleepless,
Nope, this is the first I’ve seen it, so thanks for sharing. Here’s what I know so far from a press release on TOGO.

CyberLandr makes a splash with this Tesla RV add-on

The new Tesla Cybertruck hasn’t hit the road yet, but buyers are lining up to purchase the RV addition known as the CyberLandr. Produced by Stream It, the CyberLandr will add a high-tech, disappearing camping space to Tesla’s groundbreaking electric truck for approximately $50,000.

More than 1,000 units were purchased within 15 days of presales opening. Stream It expects sales to top 10,000 units in 2022. The CyberLandr interior is expected to include sleeping space for up to two adults and two children. It will also include a state-of-the-art kitchen and bathroom, voice-control features, and a StarLink satellite dish.

Please comment…

What do you think? Would you pay $50,000 for a pop-up camper to hang on the back of your Tesla Cybertruck? Or is this just a crazy idea for people with too much money? Please leave your comments below.

OK, everyone. Remember that electricity is a useful and powerful force, so we all need to pay attention to safety precautions while using it.

Let’s play safe out there….

How can they claim to make this for sale when the truck (and its actual dimensions) don’t exist yet, except as one impractical prototype?

While the Cybertruck camper is insanely expensive, it got me thinking about a pretty rare camper… a slide-in camper with a pop-up like this one. One of these mounted on a Ford Lightning should have minimal impact on battery mileage while still giving you some room to stand up. Thoughts?

Well, I find it completely intriguing. Would be interesting to see one in real life. And of COURSE it will have Starlink 😆😆😆

It’s just plain UGLY!! 50G’s on top of the Cybertruck window sticker. I’ll keep my Winnebago Class C.

The kids stack on top of each other and the adults sleep on the truck seats. State of the art kitchen is one of those 12v plug in lunch warmers and bathroom is a gallon jug. It is ridiculous what some people will spend money on.

Can’t comment – still laughing! Clearly there are at least 1,000 folks out there with WAY too much money…

Only Tesla “fanboys” would even THINK this was a good idea. Watch for them in Marin County, CA.

I would love the power of an ev, but it is so ugly, why would you add to the ugly with another 50 g’s?

The Ford Lightning will actually be sold, and in significant numbers. The dimensions will be the same as the Conventional F-150, so there will be many camper options available.

re:  crazy idea for people with too much money

People with too much money support a lot of us medium income folks.

I know a rich couple who have three houses that they are constantly remodeling. They have a full time staff of: two skilled carpenters, a painter, a dog walker, and at least six grounds-keepers, plus cleaning staff.

Very optimistic on their part! Without dimensions it’s hard to calculate capacity but, my guesstimating would be the bed of the truck wouldn’t more than 6’X6’ at the most. They have to be VERY creative to put all that into 36 sq.ft. To answer the question NO!

After looking at the picture, I can’t see how it sleeps 2, has a modern kitchen and bath. I guess it’s magic and that explains the $50K price.
