Hero Camper turns almost any vehicle into a mobile home with Kepler Skybox
Folks, the building in front of you is known as the Kepler. It is a roof tent that you can attach to most vehicles and turn your car into a mobile home. The minds behind this build are none other than Hero Camper, based in Denmark.
Yes, you’ve heard of Hero Camper here at self-evolution. They are the team responsible for a clean and minimalist motorhome that we presented some time ago. And in the same way that their trailer offers spacious, safe and durable construction, the Kepler offers the same, as does a rooftop tent. It’s time to see how this addition to your lifestyle can completely change everything.
There are several reasons why I have chosen to bring the Kepler to your attention, but the main two are its ability to accommodate three people for EUR 3,194 ($ 3,632 at current exchange rates). This might sound like a pretty high rate for a rooftop tent, but I urge you to keep reading.
Well, like any rooftop tent, the Kepler also requires that you have a stand or racks for that. There is no mention of the type of media or media suitable for Kepler. Also according to its construction, Hero Camper offers brackets at 265 EUR (301 USD at current exchange rates).
So why are you paying close to $ 4,000? First off, the whole build you see weighs just 90 kg (198 lbs) with the included ladder and can support a maximum load of 300 kg (661 lbs). Looks like it can really fit up to three adults and even has room for cargo.
To do this, Kepler is constructed using a abs rigid shell with an outer shell in 600D polyester. In total, a water column pressure of 3000mm, which makes it resistant to rain and storms lasting for several days. The PU coating and UV50 + index will keep the interior as cool as possible if you are in direct sunlight. The floor is made using a honeycomb panel and a ripstop poly-cotton canvas with 320 g / m² and PU coating make up the canvas you see.
Making sure you and your guests get a good night’s rest, Kepler comes equipped with a memory foam mattress, one of the reasons this build seems expensive. Inside there is also LED lighting to help you see in the dark or scare off the Boogeyman. However, be forewarned, the lights will attract bugs and other bugs, but Hero Camper has you covered with mosquito nets on all openings.
The rest of the build includes shoe storage on both sides of the tent and an aluminum telescopic ladder with just one button. Speaking of telescopic action, it’s the same way habitat is set up. Fast, easy, painless. There are also side windows for a peek and a stargazing part too.
When opened, Kepler is 120cm (47.2in) high, 200cm (78.8in) long, and 190cm (74.8in) wide. Closed, you are looking at a construction that is 33cm (13 inches) high and 120cm (47 inches) long, so it’s not a giant bulge above your sleek, modern vehicle.
Now I understand this might be a pretty expensive rooftop tent, but the Kepler seems to offer the features and construction to withstand that asking price. Then again, since you might have to go through a dealer to get one of these babies, you might end up paying a bit more. Still, a rooftop tent is a great alternative to buying a completely new vehicle.
