This Tent-Camper Hybrid Inflates in Two Minutes and Sleeps Six People
There are tents, there are campers, and for those who want the best of both worlds, there are combinations of the two. Meet the Air Opus trailer, which inflates from a trailer in less than two minutes into a space with eight-foot ceilings and a six-person sleeping capacity.
While the inflatable camper looks like a tent on wheels from the outside, it includes many of the luxuries of a regular camper, like a toilet and a kitchen with a sink and a refrigerator. It also has air conditioning and heating, so you may not have to curl up in a sleeping bag wearing two pairs of socks. The camper has a double bed-sized sleeping area at either end, and the kitchen area can also be used to sleep two more. Fabric walls can be zipped between sleeping areas for privacy.

Instead of hard, unwieldy tent poles, the Opus Air uses “Air Poles” that simply inflate, for one less family argument on your camping trips, not to mention faster set-up time. Curbed writes, “From the moment you drive up to camp, the process takes just five minutes, and when you leave, a quick-release valve lets out the air and the camper folds down in about the same time.” According to Curbed, the base Opus trailer is “lightweight enough to be towed by most small SUVs.”
Opus trailers themselves start at $18,999, and to add the Air Opus system costs $2,499. For more information and to find a U.S. dealer, visit the Opus website.
