The Fieldsleeper is a unique motorhome designed by a company named Tonke.
I found out about these gorgeous campers thanks to Lloyd Kahn over at his blog.
By the way, Lloyd’s recently released his latest book, Tiny Homes: Simple Shelters, that you can order now through Amazon.
Tonke’s Fieldsleeper 1 Camper
Inside you’ll find everything that you can ask for in a recreational vehicle:
- Double gas burner
Since it’s made in Holland, you’ll find the exterior and interior to be very yacht-like.
So if you like dark woods, mahogany, and gloss – you’ll really get a kick out of Tonke’s Fieldsleeper and Explorer Series.

Tonke’s Fieldsleeper is a Detachable Motorhome
You can unload the camper from the vehicle in about 10 minutes so you can drive around without your entire house.
But what if you aren’t camping? Then you can park the detachable tiny house in the backyard and use it as a…
- Guest house
- Bed and breakfast
- Mother in law suite
The hydraulic lifting system can lower the home until it’s only 4 inches from the ground. If you wanted you can also have wheels installed so you can move about on a paved surface or roll it into a garage for storage.
This particular model (Fieldsleeper I) offers sleeping space for up to 3 people and includes enough space to store bicycles, furniture, and possibly even a scooter.

Tonke Camper Story
The company was founded by Maarten van Soest in 2005.
Every sunset he would tow the gypsy cart with a four wheel drive vehicle up the hilltops to watch the wildlife and sunset.
Then his wife gave birth to their first child, Tonke, and he created the first Tonke Camper.
It was a safe and modern truck combined with a sailing-yacht-like interior along with the exterior of a gypsy cart.
Later he sold the first one to a well-known comedian and began the construction of his second one. And that’s how Tonke Campers began.
