The Fieldsleeper is a unique motorhome designed by a company named Tonke. I found out about these gorgeous campers thanks to the famous 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.
But anyway you’re here to see the Tonke Fieldsleeper 1 Camper because it’s that AMAZING motorhome that DETACHES from itself. Pretty smart concept! And the exterior has a very yacht-like style. It’s very cool! If you like mahogany and gloss, you’ll LOVE this…

If you want you can check out the rest of the pictures and watch a video of how it works:
This tiny house functions easily as a motorhome when it’s attached to the flat-bed van.
But it’s built to high quality standards with wood. It may remind you of a yacht or sailboat in some ways.
Inside, it’s just as nice as you’d imagine.
Everything is spotless and perfectly built.
It isn’t called the Fieldsleeper for nothing, it features a comfortable sleeping space.
Wake up in comfort, and if you need to, you can move!
That’s the beauty of a camper/motorized tiny house with a detach function like this! Incredible!
Tonke’s Fieldsleeper is a Detachable Motorhome. See?
So if you wanted, you could easily park your tiny house, and use your vehicle for utility.
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…
- 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.
