Skip to comments.Plug in, Hit the Road: Toyota Prius Camper (What we'll all be living in soon?)
Posted on 03/17/2012 12:22:12 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
There are little Prii, big Prii, plug-in Prii, racing Prii, and now just revealed at this weekends Tokyo Auto Salon there are full-fledged, fully-equipped, and very Real Toyota Prius camper vans.
Starting with a new, 3rd-gen Prius, the conversion company adds a streamlined, fiber-reinforced plastic shell that expands the Prius interior into something thats, well, livable! The living area has room for a small coffee table with booth-type seating and underseat storage which can be converted to a queen-size bed (as shown, below), with an additional permanent bed in the forward section (above the cockpit). At the rear of the shell, the Prius RV features a shower/bathroom stall, which seems big enough for (quick) standing showers.
No word, yet, on storage capacities, kitchen amenities, or price but even if those are minimal (theyd have to be!), this little camper would certainly go a long way towards making cross-country camping trips greener, cleaner, and more affordable if it ever came stateside.

Some of the comments referred to it as a Prius with an Elvis haircut. :)
It doesn’t look tall enough to stand up in.
"looks like a sex therapist going on a house call"
Looking at the photos on the original site, it looks like the rear hatch is removed for this mod, so they may have seen the TG show.
That is one ugly conversion.
Looks like a Prius with a hunchback.
Prius with a goiter.
Is that the episode they camped on a cliff and the tent caught on fire? Funny
