Due to the extremely high price and logistical difficulties of shipping a fully assembled Home On Wheels Kit this is not a service we can offer at this time.

Have you ever lived or traveled extensively out of a vehicle?

The entire inspiration for Camp N Car comes from the shared experiences of the companies founders. Our managing director Steve Moore lived out of a special Honda Element camper in Alaska for 6 months which was designed by our Technical Director Martin Nerbovig. Through this experience he gained a deep insight into living a fulfilling and minimalist lifestyle on the road. After awhile friends started asking about getting builds of a similar nature done for their vehicles and here we are today! We are happy to share our experiences and skills with the world so that others may share in the same kind of joy that this travel brings.

What is the weight capacity of the bed?

To be honest, we haven’t been able to establish a maximum weight capacity because we haven’t been able to break it in our torture testing. The Trunk Bunk is very strong and can support hundreds of pounds with ease, we have had multiple people standing on one slat with one foot with the bed fully expanded and it hasn’t so much as bent. So long as you’re not using the Trunk Bunk for industrial hauling purposes and stick to using it for your gear and a few campers, you’ll be fine.

Why does the Home On Wheels Kit cost this much?

Everything we make is designed with a great deal of thorough engineering and care using advanced software and expensive machinery. From there we pick top quality and sustainable materials and hand craft everything here in Washington State to an extremely high standard. Additionally, our employees are highly skilled craftspeople who are paid living wages and are treated like our family.

The reality of doing all of this means we can’t offer goods that are as cheap as stuff you can buy from overseas manufactures, but we are determined to continue being a company that manufactures solely in the United States and supports our local economy. Once you make your purchase you will see the quality and customer care make it all worthwhile!

Furthermore, your purchasing of this unit helps fund our donations to the Homes On Wheels Alliance so that these kits can get into the hands of nomads in need.

Can you ship out of the United States? How about Alaska or Hawaii?

Yes we do, but you will need to contact us to make a special shipping arrangement. We offer free shipping to all customers in the contiguous United States but for anyone outside the US or in Alaska/Hawaii we will need to generate a custom shipping quote and charge accordingly.

What if my vehicles surface area is uneven?

We have just the solution for this issue! Our leveler legs can be purchased alongside your Home On Wheels Kit and provide you with up to two inches of adjustability on all points of contact so that you can level out all components of the kit. For vehicles with even bigger sloped areas some DIY solutions to fill those spaces may be required. If you need advice or have questions on this front don’t hesitate to contact us!

Final Considerations

The Home On Wheels Kit is a fantastic product that will turn your vehicle into a cozy home on wheels without needing to spend six figures on a fancy conversion job. It’s easily assembled, a breeze to remove and tons of fun to use. Given that these take a little while for us to produce, we recommend ordering soon! If you have any questions or feel uncertain about anything please don’t hesitate to contact us.

  1. Rebecca Horowitz

    This was the absolute PERFECT kit for my Toyota Sienna! The Home On Wheels kit fits inside my minivan like a glove and gives me a gorgeous and highly effective way to turn it into a sweet little camper. I love the expanding and contracting bed platform that allows me and the hubby to sleep on the bed together or take comfortable solo trips.

    My favorite part is how easy it is to remove and put back in so I can go back to using the van normally during the week. I can’t wait to take this thing on more long road trips and see what it’s really capable of! If you’re hesitating about getting one of these JUST BUY IT! They’re made of really nice wood and the guys at Camp N Car are super nice and helpful. Totally worth the money and one of the best camping gear purchases I’ve ever made.

  2. Martha Wells Williams

    5 for both marketing and community service with the 1 to HOWA for every 10 HOW kits purchased.

    5 on the superior craftsmanship in your HOW kit.

    I Know I sure do appreciate you as I am a very low income senior disabled military veteran needing to get my nomad vanlife together.

    This time my vanlife will be greatly improved over my past cardwelling-while-homeless experiences. I curtsy in appreciation to HOWA, and campncar too.

    Thank You.
