Revolutionary CyberLandr Truck Camper Gets $100M in Pre-Sales Orders

When it comes to the design of today’s truck camper, if you’ve seen one you’ve seen them all largely holds true. Not so for the soon-to-be launched CyberLandr by Texas-based newcomer Stream It. Built exclusively for the Tesla Cybertruck, this space-age truck camper is completely hidden, all-electric, and extendable. In fact, from a distance you can’t even tell that there’s a camper mounted on the truck until its popped-up. No, folks, this is not your grandpa’s truck camper. It’s not even close.

Demand for this revolutionary camper is already high. The CyberLandr has already garnered over 2,000 pre-orders with over $100 million in sales, according to Stream It.

As expected, construction of the CyberLandr will be unique. The design will feature three extendable levels of insulated, lightweight composite panels that are both strong and lightweight. The interior of the camper will consist of two rooms: a wet bath and a multipurpose living area. Features include a kitchen with a porcelain countertop, a small DC compressor refrigerator, a dry-flush toilet, a heated floor, a recirculating shower, two pivoting dinette tables, an ultra HD smart TV, and a collapsible, queen-size bed.

The company claims that the 1,200-pound, non-cabover camper can be extended and ready for use in under two minutes by using a smartphone app. The height of the camper when fully extended is expected to be around 11 feet.

“Our entire team is super excited to share CyberLandr with the world,” explained Stream It CEO, Lance King. “Finally, we will be able to take a kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom and office with us everywhere and anywhere we go. We will be able to take our mobile tiny home through a drive-thru, an automatic car wash, into the mall parking garage, as well as back country trails. More importantly, because it is always available our customers are telling us they plan to use it seven times more than they would a traditional RV, including at youth sporting events, tailgate parties, a picnic at the park, a shower after a day at the lake/beach, and much more.”

Exterior features of the CyberLandr include an extendable compact design that can be parked practically anywhere, including in a home garage. The camper will feature dual pane windows, a retractable 500 watt solar power system, a Tambour-style exterior sliding door, high-speed satellite internet for home/office use, and surround-sound audio. An optional dolly system will allow the camper to be installed and moved. Details on the dolly system, however, are lacking with the system still in development.

Leveraging the Cybertruck’s massive battery system, CyberLandr will be 100 percent electric. The truck camper will run exclusively using the truck’s 100 to 150 kilowatt-hour battery system using 110 volt and 220 volt inverters provided by the truck. Going this route makes sense since the camper will be able to leverage the Cybertruck’s massive battery system without adding any additional weight or loss of storage space inside the camper. Cooking will be accomplished using two induction cooktops.

CyberLandr’s plumbing system will feature several innovations as well. The camper will come with a virtual 40 gallon fresh water holding tank and a virtual 20 grey waste water holding tank, plus a recirculating shower. The recirculating system recycles the water from the shower and passes it through a four stage filter that includes UV light sanitization. The dry-flush toilet operates electrically similar to the imported Wrappon. The toilet has a long disposable bag and each flush twists and seals the bag to isolate the waste. Each bag is good for 12-15 flushes. Simply lift the lid to find the flushing bag inside a large garbage liner. Each bag is disposed of like a diaper.

Of course, one thing that helps make the CyberLandr unique will be the Cybertruck itself. The angular, space-age truck will sport a stainless steel body, armored glass, seating for six, a self-leveling suspension system, and onboard air. Several models at various price points will be offered. All models will offer 100 cubic feet of storage space and a 6.5-foot-long cargo area. The long-range version will have an estimated 150 kilowatt-hours of battery capacity and accelerate from 0–60 mph in 3.2 seconds and have an estimated range of 500 miles. The short-range version will have an estimated 100 kilowatt-hours of battery capacity and accelerate from 0–60 mph in 5 seconds but can go only 240 miles. Maximum towing and payload is listed at 14,000 pounds and 3,500 pounds respectively, impressive numbers indeed for a “light” truck. After several delays, the Cybertruck is now scheduled for release in 2023.

According to King, the company is currently working on CyberLandr prototypes and still hasn’t rolled out a production model yet. With promises to deliver these alongside the Tesla Cybertruck in late 2022, the company has a little more time to get everything right.

“We think the world is ready for a re-invention of the RV that is thoroughly modern and dramatically reduces the compromises and maintenance of traditional RVs. For example, by disappearing it is not only less conspicuous but also much more aerodynamic so there is a minimal effect on range and much lower operating costs. The combination of Cybertruck and CyberLandr means you can enjoy the journey as much as the destination because together they provide an improved driving experience compared to a traditional RV or van, with better maneuverability, visibility, and drivability. And with electric propulsion, now we can enjoy Mother Nature more while treading more lightly upon her,” King said.

It will be interesting to see how the CyberLandr prototype turns out. Will it be a hit or miss? We can’t wait to see. The big hold-up now is a truck to mount it on.

    • oups sorry.. i didn’t see the video. Quite fast to get the sleeping space but it is possible to sleep. Space for seating o sleeping, looks small, anyway.

  1. Amazing that many of your readers appear to be luddites. Innovation is necessary and change takes some getting used to.

    • Not a luddite at all. But as someone who uses their truck camper a lot and has had to deal with mechanical issues big and small over the years, I subscribe to the KISS principle.

      Electric vehicles are the future and make total sense for urban travel and over the road travel where charging stations exist. Back country travel where vehicles are subjected to rough roads, extreme vibration and no charging stations, are a different matter. I can’t see the agencies managing public lands being willing to tear up the landscape to install charging infrastructure.

      And the vehicle featured is overly complex to travel the backcountry unless you’re an electrical engineer. Remember, 30 years ago, vehicle owners manuals showed how to adjust engine timing and carburetors. Today they warn against drinking the battery water. Few people can or want to know how to fix their vehicles- they just them to work.

    • Innovation is nice but in this case it is just so falsely advertised, the vehicles as well as solar. People are learning that all the hype about no out of pocket costs and free air conditioner or free generator on and on. Sooner or later people who are selling power over the grid will be paying for the use of the grid and the IRS will realize that doing that is an income. Worldwide electric vehicles are 1%, that’s a long way to go.

    • Many innovations have been incorporated into truck campers in the last 10 years or so, cassette toilets, Truma air/water heaters, induction stoves, insulated windows, lithium batteries to name a few. The Tesla camper and truck was probably not designed for the kinds of camping most of us do. It isn’t big enough, tough enough, time tested or pretty. But some of its innovations may find their way into campers we might buy in the future. In the meantime, I am sure that Tesla owners will be interested in what ever the first version Tesla truck camper looks like. It will meet the needs of outdoor concert lovers, and some full hookup RV park campers I am sure, but not the rest of us. I am content for now with my 2013 Alaskan 10’ on a 2019 Ford F-250 long bed gasser.

    • The fact is that there can be too much technology and there are people who are more comfortable with the KISS method of doing things. Technology carries a big downside of being toxic in its production and lithium batteries are no exception and try to recycle a lithium battery very difficult and expensive!

  2. NOPE! The truck is useless enough, now this! The truck itself is a near useless concept. Those high angled l sides prevent one from reaching over the side to get something out of the bed, utility box, flatbed, no, bed length, no. These electric vehicles keep advertising their acceleration capabilities but fall short of giving the range if you drive it that way. The range is given with one person, no cargo, flat ground, 100% charge. Then to avoid showing how long it really takes to charge they give an 80% charge but fail to give the new 80% range. The main difference is cheaper fuel source (for now) and an expensive very heavy fuel tank vs higher priced fuel and a cheap lightweight fuel tank with much greater range that fills quickly.

  3. I will say this isn’t a camper for me, it just has that “sardine in a can” feel to it and as others posters have said too much electronics even to get the door open. I would also like to know what is the real range of that rig with 1200 pounds sitting in the truck bed, most likely the real range would shrink drastically as other real life testing (YouTube) that been done on other electric vehicles.

    Hey buddy can you give me a charge!

    • When I was a kid in the ’60s we’d play in the discarded box of a new refrigerator. That’s what this looks like to me. No thanks to the cramped truck space or the cramped ‘camper’.

  4. Looks mildly absurd. The seats don’t look comfortable and the bed deploying over the living space raises many questions.

    In contrast, after my first impression of the the Silverado EV as hopeless as a camper platform (small payload, wings like an Avalanche), I’ve changed my mind. Put a Canopy on the Silverado EV, put the mid gate down, put a mattress in the back 6 feet of the now 9 foot bed, and you have a mini camper with heat (heat pump) and storage space. Its not a full camper, but perhaps close to the utility of a truck with a GFC topper on it.

  5. I guess you’re going to need to be under 6′ tall to function in this and it would be hard for two people to function in it. Anyone know the ceiling height and bed dimensions?

  6. It sure didnt fall far from the ugly tree. I’ll echo what a previous commenter said – it’s too bloody complicated and there won’t be charging stations in rural America for a decade at least. A lot of rural America barely has high speed internet now. Turning off the curmudgeon spigot now.

  7. While I like this concept, I think they have too many technical issues to overcome and still offer all their promising. My biggest issue is lack of mechincal space. I understand they plan on hiding tankage in a well under the bed but that still leaves space, for things like the furnace water heater wiring plumbing etc, that don’t seem to be accounted for. The collapsing aspect will also make wiring for the lights and roof top panels tricky, It also appears they haven’t fully accounted for how to handle where the sink and toilet will go in stowed mode or how the plumbing will handle being slid in and out without a basement etc.
    I wish them well and hope the succeed because the camper market needs some new ideas. but as some one with an engineering background, who used to work on RV’s for a living I think they are in for some issues or big compromises.
