Chevy Camaro Owner Converts Car Into Live-In Camper: Video11
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.

ummmm, just no, you don’t do that to a muscle car
Camaro SS – I believe it’s a 6 banger so who cares.
Why do you think its a 6? and if so your right
Look at the hood, non SS are plain in the front like this one.
Oh yeah, your right, well still, apparently people have been doing this to Corvettes and Camaros and I still think its a disgrace, but less of one on a v6
whatever gets clicks these days.
A lot of people do that. They are called poor folks.
I don’t know…. 6 or 8cyl, other than they could not get themselves a van to ‘be down by the river’ why the heck would you do this to any car, other than you have way too much time on your hands….
Just when you think youve seen the most absurd thing ever…………
Just because you can do something, doesnt mean you should.
That just should NOT be done to a Camaro!! Under any circumstance! Although I congratulate him for finding enough space in the back seat! I can’t even get into my back seat. I’m sure he could have found a bigger car to work with.
i think its awesome, if he can do that and make it witout paying ridiculous rent till he gets done school….more power to him. he is young enough and not on any medication..i say go for it! who knows what the future holds if rents and mortgages spiral out of control….
