Home on Wheels Kit Guide
Unsure if this build is right for your vehicle? Need some help figuring out sizing, dimensions or other fitting considerations? We’re here to help!
Single vs. Expanding Bed
Customize your Home on Wheels Kit with a single sleeper bed frame (Basic Bunk @ 23″ wide) or the expanding Trunk Bunk, which is great for two and telescopes between 25″ and 42″ wide. You’ll want to consider how many people will be camping in the car, the size of mattress you prefer, and whether or not your pup has bed privileges!
Bed Length & Height
Both the Basic Bunk and expanding Trunk Bunk come in 5’, 5.5’, and 6’ lengths. Here, you’ll want to consider how tall you are and how much room your vehicle has. You can also choose a bed frame height. We offer a 9.5” (regular) and 17” (tall) version. Consider under-bed storage as well as headroom when deciding. Remember, mattresses add inches!
Our leveler legs offer a solution for uneven floors by giving you up to two inches of adjustability on all points of contact. They can also make our 17” (tall) bed even taller! If you would like a custom adjustment, just contact us to come by the shop in Port Townsend, Washington! We are happy to offer special fittings, adjustments, and additions.

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!
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 lower 48/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.
