The fifth- and sixth-generation of the Chevy Camaro is known for its high beltline and low roofline, resulting in an aggressive exterior design yet cramped interior space. Despite this, one fifth-gen Camaro owner decided to transform his muscle car into a live-in camper.
When one usually thinks of camper vehicles, they might tend to picture upfitted versions of the Chevy Express and GMC Savana, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter or the Ford Transit. In this case, the owner of this Chevy Camaro actually downsized from a Sprinter Van to the muscle car. Regardless of the size difference between the two vehicles, the owner still managed to fit a kitchen and bed in the interior, complete with solar panels mounted to the roof to provide electricity when the engine isn’t running.
When the owner isn’t sleeping, he uses the passenger-side rear-seat as a chair for eating or using his computer. Positioned behind his kitchen, this seat is relatively roomy considering the size of the Camaro’s back seat. When it’s time for bed, window covers block-out any external sources of light from penetrating into the cabin, and the owner sprawls out on a bed that spans from the driver-side rear-seat through the pass-through to the trunk. While the owner can stretch out, it’s worth noting that he doesn’t have much room to move around.
As for storage, there isn’t much left after the bed and kitchen have been set up. That being said, this Camaro does feature a minimal amount of “closet space” in the passenger-side of the trunk.
What do you think of this living arrangement? Is it worth the savings in rent or mortgage payments, or would the claustrophobic nature of the Camaro’s cabin eventually drive you crazy? Let us know in the comments below.
