How to Car Camp in a Toyota Prius



Earlier this year, we posted a report of a camper conversion kit for the Prius, but it was a permanent alteration that cost USD $40,000.  Now a removable tent extension has been developed by Habitents.
Habitents doesn't use any poles and is able to roll up small enough to store in your glove compartment - also something you don't get with a regular tent. It basically hangs off your hatchback with a couple of simple tie-downs, so it sets up easily.

A photo at the Gizmag source shows a view of the interior; the price of USD$90 could be recouped by avoiding one night in a hotel or motel.  The manufacturers have a patent pending that would apply to other hatchback vehicles.

I dont see what this accomplishes at all. There is the exact same about of room inside with the hatch closed as when open with this attachment.

I don't think so

The serial killers who like to cruise the rest stops are really going to appreciate this. So much easier to get to a potential victim.

Maus: It adds ventilation and keeps bugs out.

There are a large number of hatch-back tents. My grandparents used to travel with one which was bigger than this, though also more complex. It added a small vestibule where one could stand up and change clothes while still being 'inside'.
