Microcamper pick of the month: Stealth campers – indistinguishable from any other car

We’ve focused on stealth camping in the last post and this one is going to complement it with good examples of stealth campers – some surprisingly small yet full of space 🙂

The first one is a tiny Nissan Versa – a stealth camper for the minimalists!

The author Joey White (@joeywhitedesigns) made sure this car’s limited space is utilised to the last bit and he made a good job out of it.

What I like about this conversion:

  • using a lot of the space inside the car for storage or room to sleep (including the passengers seat area)
  • left 2 seats in (one for driving, obviously :D, another at the back for an office / kitchen 🙂
  • plenty of storage, clever solutions for such a small car
  • includes a sink with running water and electricity!!

VW Golf stealth camper – taken to another stealth level!

You wouldn’t be able to tell if someone is sleeping in this car even if you had a suspicion. Very neatly masked by it’s author A freedom project.

What I like about this conversion:

  • nice walkthrough of his DIY process
  • good use of car window rain shields
  • clever stealth curtain in the middle of the car so that no one can tell what’s going on in the back + your feet sticking out are under a black blanket, which could be anything – bags, material etc.

Car camping and microcamping allows me to keep traveling and exploring with a much greater level of freedom & privacy – to go anywhere and sleep anywhere. I didn’t have 30K to buy a VW Multivan, so found my way to the world of everyday car camping conversions. Here I share my experiences and what I learn.

  1. I just switched from a Doblo * damaged by an irate driver who did not like my grey hair. Just acquired Berlingo with camping box where rear seat was. Current CCC insurers have refused to insure my “motorhome”. CC club uses A plan. Adrian Flux tried to cheat me. Anyone any success. 12 years ncd not considered.

    1. Hi Caroline,

      sorry about your bad experience. This tends to differ for each insurance company, so best thing to do is to talk to a few of them and pick the one that seems best. Adrian Flux tend to have good reviews by other campers, not sure what “tried to cheat me” means here.
