Earlier this year I showed you NASA’s former senior architect’s Cricket RV trailer.
Well, Garret Finney is at it again! This time he’s working on an even smaller micro camper.
It’s called the Firefly. And it’s something that can be used for camping trips and traveling.
But it can be more than just a weekend camper too. I’ll explain below.
Introducing: The Firefly
Finney thinks the Firefly can be used in industrial and disaster-relief situations as base camps in areas with little to no infrastructure or where systems have been temporarily compromised as well.
I’d rather see people like you and me using them for lightweight and fun travels though. Anyway let me show you more of Garret’s modern take on the vardo which you can put on a small utility trailer, in the back of your pick up truck or on its legs (yes, it has legs).
Camper in Truck Bed Mode
The Firefly weighs just 600 lbs so it’s really lightweight and can even be towed by 4-cylinder vehicles just like most teardrop campers and just like Finney’s Cricket trailer. But even lighter!
The Modern Camper on its Legs
It also has legs that can be deployed so it can be set up at campgrounds (or anywhere, really) just like most truck bed campers have.
On a Utility Trailer so you can Tow it
The Firefly also has lots of utility features that make it easy to bring your stuff with you.
Let me take you inside…
You Can Even Tow it with Small Cars!
If you’re interested in purchasing the Firefly when it’s out I encourage you to fill out this form so that Finney and his team can keep you informed as to when it’s available to the public. To see more photos go here.
