The key to off-road adventures? Lighten up.

Leentu’s sleek new pop-up truck camper, available now for preorder, was supposedly inspired by “aerospace design.” That means these tiny homes on wheels should fit in most garages, set up/break down in mere seconds and still offer plenty of space ... all while weighing less than 150 pounds. Actually, just 100 pounds, if you choose the pricier carbon fiber model.

The two styles of campers — built for 2005 and newer Toyota Tacoma Long Bed models — both feature a weatherproof, marine-grade tent with zippered windows, multiple USB charging ports, six feet of standing room, dimmable LED lighting, pre-wiring for solar, a stowaway loft bed with high-density foam mattress and a hinged full-height rear-door with integrated folding table.

Prices start at just over $10,000, and you can save up to 20% if you sign up for the preorder. While they're Tacoma-exclusive for now (2005 and new models), the company plans to introduce models to outfit additional trucks — like the Chevy Colorado and Ford Ranger — if market demand calls for it.
