A disappearing camper for Tesla's Cybertruck sees raving sales

A disappearing camper that can be stowed away in the vault of a Tesla is seeing roaring popularity with $100 million in orders.


The camper, known as the CyberLandr, first started taking preorders in April 2021. Future customers will be able to enjoy an added bedroom, a living room, kitchen, bathroom and office to a Cybertruck for $50,000.

The camper comes from analytics platform Stream It, Inc., which moved from Las Vegas to Austin to be near Tesla’s headquarters at Giga Texas. Powered by artificial intelligence and solar energy, the company says it is disrupting the RV industry and helping with a transition to sustainable transportation. And, they note, Tesla CEO Elon Musk once called it "cool."


“We are humbled by the overwhelming response and excitement around CyberLandr,” CEO Lance King said. King went on to say “many people have asked for the opportunity to invest in the early stages of the company.” To do so, the company partnered with StartEngine, an equity crowdfunding platform, to make a limited number of shares available.

Some perks of the camper include no additional aerodynamic drag, allowing for a minimal effect on range. Stream It also boasts the compactness makes it easier to access parking and drive-thrus than other RVs.

But it could be some time before interested buyers can put it to use. Reports say that the Cybertruck, which had been planned for production this year at the new Gigafactory, may not start until 2023.
