With so many ways to turn your car into a camper, why should you do it with a TentBox? Type in ‘how to turn your car into a camper’ into Google and you’ll be shown a variety of methods within videos that just look overly complicated. Take the boxes that turn your car into a camper; these boxes are supposed to be an all in one box that provides shower facilities, cooking facilities and can even convert into a variety of items such as tables and chairs. While these are quite cool, they don’t provide sleeping quarters and they look so overly complicated, that you’ll be fiddling around with the components trying to build a table for quite a while.

Next, you’ve got the option of putting a makeshift bed in the back of your car. This requires taking out your back seats and good carpentry skills to build a folding wood bed. Without the required carpentry skills, you might end up with splinters in your back from the bed caving in. Even perfectly executed, if you’re on the taller side, there’s no way to lie out straight and you’ve always got to keep switching your back car seats in and out after you’ve finished camping.
