NEWS – I’ve never been camping because bugs, no showers, no flushing toilets, dirt, bugs, and bugs. But if I were ever to cross that activity off my bucket list, I’d consider it if I had one of these ultracool SHIFTPODs to sleep in.
The SHIFTPOD looks like an Airstream camper and a tent had a baby. It is made of reflective material to keep the 100sq foot interior cool and features 2 doors with bug screens and 6 windows with bug screens. So yay, no bugs!
The most insane thing about the SHIFTPOD is that you can set it up in a minute. To that, I say what?! No way. Check out this video:
The only downside to the SHIFTPOD is that it’s not exactly designed for the backpacker because it’s heavy at 65lbs. You won’t want to hike with it. But if you’re driving to a campsite, you’ll be the envy of all your friends.
The SHIFTPOD sells for $1299 from Advancedsheltersystemsinc.com

I love it! Except… without the optional AC system, how on earth does it ventilate? Baked potato camping?
You don’t think the 6 windows would work?
The windows SEEM a little on the small side.
Courtesy of the “Ferris” effect… This looks like it would be great for the ‘drive to the campground and setup’ glamper 👸
I’ve slept outside in a variety of ways and provided nourishment for a variety of creatures.
as a family we camped in tents, big and small; campers big and small.
my sons have two very different takeaways from their experiences.
one will sleep on a blanket under the stars, the other thinks camping is room service.
the camper we use now has the necessary amenities in a reasonably sized package. it just contains the two of us and our beasts and it has air conditioning!
I personally refuse to suffer in the pursuit of “fun”.
