FireFly: Compact Camper That Fits in a Pickup Truck Bed

Garrett Finney used to work for NASA designing living spaces on the International Space Station. So naturally he is a smart guy. You have to be to work for NASA. In 2009, he left to build lightweight campers. So what kind of camper does a former NASA designer build? The awesome kind. After a few years and a few models, he came up with the FireFly.

The camper fits into the bed of a truck or onto the back of a small trailer. Built primarily from aluminum and EPS foam, it weighs just 600 pounds, so light vehicles can haul it pretty easily. The interior is small of course, but how much does one person need? You can put your gear beneath the beds, which fold up to provide you with sitting benches and tables.

It comes with optional lander legs too, although I see them as a must unless you’re going to leave it in the back of your pickup truck. It even has a nice little window so you can look at your surroundings. Check out more images of FireFly here. I can’t wait to see what other designs he comes up with.
