It’s always fun to find something completely different, and that’s what you get with the Haaks Opperland campervan. This is actually an itty-bitty two-storey cabin that sits on the bed of a compact Fiat flatbed truck.

Simply drive the home to your location and drop it off. The 13-foot-long building then pops open, and the truck is free to drive wherever you need to go!

I’ll confess up front: It’s not even remotely affordable at more than $140,000 (especially since you’d have to ship it overseas — it’s built by a Dutch company), but the idea is brilliant and maybe it’ll catch on!

This is the Neuron EV Micro Truck Concept electric vehicle. It’s a multifunctional modular truck that can have a variety of purposes including the potential for motorhome and travel trailer use. I wonder what the range and efficiency of something like this would be.

The Neuron EV STAR is a multipurpose micro truck set to disrupt the market by creating a new wave of electric car culture. Its clean and minimalistic design is reflective of the company’s product philosophy of simply versatile.

This is the Hymer Galileo self-driving camper concept. New Atlas just did a piece about it featuring a fold-out deck. I wonder if there will be an off-road package?

It’s sort of like a self-driving tiny house in a way, isn’t it? Crazy to think… But who knows, maybe someday, pretty soon, something like this will be available, right? Well, not too soon. In the press video, it says year 2030+. Which, hey, that’s not too far off really (can you believe it?). Anyway, check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments. One thing that’s surely coming soon is the concept of a self-driving motorhome! That might be nice for some long days on the road. Do you like the idea of self-driving? Why or why not?

With stories of people creating their very own all-electric motorhomes and van conversions, it can’t be long before we actually see something like a ‘Tesla Motorhome’ become available, right? In fact, there’s already news of an all-electric VW bus coming back to the United States.

That’s why I’m glad Motor1.com created this now viral rendering. Why wouldn’t Tesla possibly create an all-electric motorhome? And if not Tesla, then why not any other RV manufacturer that can simply use a Tesla Semi or maybe the upcoming Tesla Pick Up Truck as a base?

Garrison Architects created this prefabricated modular stackable tiny housing concept for the purpose of emergency/disaster housing. At a first glance, they look like shipping containers, but they’re not.

Inside each unit has a kitchen, living area, dining area, bathroom, plenty of storage, and 1-3 bedrooms depending on the design. They also offer ventilation to help reduce air conditioning costs.

As much recycled materials as possible are also used to create these units. In addition, no formaldehyde is contained in the wood used. And they’re also aiming to make the units self-sufficient.

This tiny unfolding shipping container home is one of a kind, although it did disappoint me a bit. I’ll tell you why later.

Designed by artist/architect Adam Kalkin, it’s officially dubbed the Illy Push Button House and was created for Illy. At just 20′ by 8′ it unfolds into five different rooms. Yes, this design packs a kitchen, dining room, bedroom, living room, and library. And guess what? It transforms at the push of a button. Hence the name. If that’s not cool enough you should also know that it’s prefabricated using recycled and/or recyclable materials. This might be a tiny house that’s truly at the cutting edge of sustainability and innovation. But there’s a catch… It still needs a roof once it’s unfolded. I didn’t like that.
