Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the Sydney Opera House is a masterpiece of 20th century architecture and one of the most recognizable and iconic buildings in the world today.
Designed by Dutchman Reynard Beheer, the Opera is neither a masterpiece of 20th century architecture nor recognizable and iconic — but you can sleep in it without getting arrested.
Built in Europe from components like stainless steel, lightweight aluminum and teak and oak, the Opera is a pop-up private suite which can be set up in minutes without pegs or poles. Set atop a trailer equipped with LEDs for safety, the camper can be towed by a standard sedan.
Once expanded, the Opera gives its owner access to amenities like a 9.5 gallon fridge, LED lighting, thermostat-controlled heating and two electrically adjustable beds that can link up. Add in touches like a ceramic toilet, teak veranda and external shower, and you’ve got a masterpiece.

“If you make the Opera your travel companion, a whole new world will open up to you,” says Beheer’s firm Your Suite in Nature. “A world in which you can enjoy the luxuries of a comfortable hotel against the backdrop of your favorite natural landscapes. A world in which you have the freedom to go, or stay, wherever you wish, while relishing the purity of the outdoors in style.”
Tipping the scales at around 3,000 pounds, the Opera is available for approximately $36,000.
