A new towable camper arrived at the Elkhart RV Dealer Open House this year. Occupying a space just outside the entrance to the RV Hall of Fame property, Camp365, which bills itself as The Cabin That Goes Everywhere, made its Open House debut.
This new camper, with a starting weight under 1500 pounds, can be towed by any vehicle on the market. Camp365 states that the adjustable wheelbase can be cranked down to just 48 inches and it can even be towed by a Toyota Prius or a Mini Cooper.
The Patented and Ingenious triangle-shaped camper starts at $23,449 and opens 12 feet wide and 8 feet deep, with over 7 feet of headroom for a total of 700 cubic square feet.
The Camp365 uses an ingenious system of accessories that slide in and out of the living space. A table, sink, stovetop, and even a toilet are all part of a nifty system to slide and swap accessories.
A 12-gallon tank provides hot or cold fresh water and empties into a 12-gallon gray tank, courtesy of the stainless steel sink. The slide-out toilet with the built-in black tank slides out into a space where the privacy curtain doubles as a changing area inside the small but spacious camper.
There are plenty of options available as well, including TV mounts, bunk beds for the kids, a fold-out solar panel for the existing solar-ready connection, and a rack for paddleboards, bikes, canoes, or kayaks. Step outside and take advantage of the optional shower and another private dressing space.
The floor of the Camp365 opens up to reveal in-floor storage, part of the 39 cubic feet of overall storage available. Efficient heating and air conditioning are taken care of by the latest technology, keeping you at just the right temperature as you move quietly around the Camp365’s soft MarineMat flooring, warrantied for three years.
The USB, 12V, & 120V AC ports keep your essentials charged and running so you can enjoy and share your camping journeys.
When closed up, the Camp365 is a durable, aerodynamic hard shell towable. When parked and fully opened, it’s an all-weather, 365-day camper that can be used from Florida to Alaska.
The sleek and modern Camp365 uses no wood in construction, which means no rot and no mildew for your rustic outdoor adventures. You can even take the Camp365 through rugged terrain with the optional 14” off-road wheels, rims, and extra-wide fenders, giving you another 5″ clearance over the roughest terrain.
Once your great camping trip is over, the Camp365 folds up and fits in your garage or storage shed, ready for your next adventure. The patented Cabin That Goes Everywhere may be the new kid on the block, but that kid has nearly 10 years of engineering and development.
Make camping a year-round activity, check out the Camp365 travel trailer. It’s definitely not your Grandfather’s pop-up.

Excellent article–really gets the essence of this remarkable product!
No such thing as “700 cubic square feet.” I think you mean “700 cubic feet.”
At almost $24,000 it’s not worth the money!

I’d love to see pictures of the inside!

First time I read through the article, the interior pictures just didn’t show up. I went back to glance at the outside again, and found exactly what I’d hoped for. That was fast! (kidding) Interesting trailer! Thanks.
People need to quit stating small trailers can be pulled by a Prius or a Mini. We have an 11ft Camplite with a 1900lb dry weight. Our Outback was rated for 2700lbs. That does not account for aerodynamics. The coefficient of drag killed our Subaru. Dead.
I now tow with a 5.7l hemi.
You might be able to tow this thing off the lot in a Prius or Mini but it will absolutely kill it down the road.
Thanks for being honest and practical about the facts of towing, plus all the “stuff” and the weight of the persons in the tow vehicle not to mention the drag then the mountains.

I have personally towed the Camp365 behind the following vehicles: Subaru Forester (2.5 liter 4 cyl.), Jeep Renegade (2.4 liter), Polaris RZR 1000 (UTV), Yamaha Viking (UTV), and Nissan Titan pick-up truck. In all cases, the CAMP365 towed exceptionally well at highway speeds or on backwoods trails. Unlike traditional trailers, the Camp365, when closed for travel in only 4 feet wide (tires are 72 inches wide) and just 6 foot, 7 inches tall, which mean less than one foot of the top of the unit is exposed to wind behind the tow vehicle so drag is minimal.

I have family that tow a 1990lb dry weight with a Subaru outback and have no issues. Knowing they were pulling it, they added a cooler to the tranny and made sure the total weight of both vehicles and cargo were well within limits. Not sure why yours died (you didn’t mention specifically what died) but maybe that was the difference?
I pull a 3094lb TT behind a Mazda cx-9 and have no issues, but I did add the tranny cooler, wd hitch, and manually shift when doing hills using the speed shifter. I also use the TT brakes appropriately.
Our 2012 VW Routan went from about 22 mpg to 19 mpg while towing this. We traveled from Austin TX to Albia Iowa to get it and drove it all the way back, so our mpg was pretty solid. 3 mpg loss doesn’t seem so bad to me. We didn’t have it filled with water or anything though, just the camp365 with nothing loaded in it.

And this is for sale at $24,000???????????????????
Good luck to the company for trying, but I doubt it.
David James says
We are interested in pulling it cross country, Not pulling it one mile to a hunting camp with a ATV or Utv, and that type at 24 K, Not in the world

Where do the beds go when it is folded up?
The bed frames fold in with the walls and the mattresses are inflatable
I purchased one of these about a week ago. It’s been amazing! We actually DID have an issue with it but they drove 6+ hours to come pick it up, tow it back, fix it and bring it back again – outstanding company with incredible people! IMHO it’s worth the price because it’s built to last, you can store it in your garage and tow it with just about anything. We have a boat and this trailer in our standard 2 car garage (hoa won’t allow them otherwise) and there’s room to spare. Our minivan mpg only dropped from 22 to 19 while towing it. It’s amazing…
Man! just watch the youtube video on setting it up, including bed and other stuffs… Don’t miss the water system setup and the AC setup. Looks like it will take a long time. To the point I feel this is embarrassing… So it’s a no for me. On top of all the setup time, it is not even a fully hard sided trailer. and there are many places that won’t allow trailer that is not fully hard sided. such as Yellowstone fishing bridge. So please think twice before buying this junk.
I think there are other fully hard sided trailers that is a lot easier to setup with build in hot water and kitchen in the similar price range. A-frame pop up trailer like aliner or chaletrv come to mind. Aliner and Chaletrv also can fit in any size garage easily. Can be tow with small suv or minivan too. So I don’t get the point of this seemingly high tech but sadly pointless junk!

I have to laugh at the negative comments by keyboard experts that have never owned or have any idea what a pop up let alone anything that can be used year-round costs! The idea is flexibility so hauling a mobile house like a travel trailer in comparison is not a comparison! Anything of quality to compare to the Camp365 you are talking in the $40,000 plus price point along with you will not be able to configure the same. Everything in this market is a give and take structure so the give here is configurability and true four-season useability but the take is time or your convenience. Get off your keyboard and check one out if you truly want a real-world experience!
