Get a taste of van life with this unique living space for your car

Everyone's been seduced by the idea of camping at one point or another, right? Spotting the stars at night, falling asleep to the sounds of the woods, waking up to a sunrise … There's just something magical about sleeping in the great outdoors. But, of course, reality is often disappointing. Tents, in particular, can be tiny and hot, and they definitely aren't ideal for long-term camping trips. 

But perhaps the Carsule can break the mold. This pop-up cabin for your car isn't so much a tent as it's a genuine living space that you can plop anywhere. Designed for vehicles with an upswinging tailgate, the Carsule adds a cozy place to sleep and lounge that, at two meters high, is tall enough for almost anyone to stand and move around. 

With the Carsule's netted exterior, you can actually enjoy the outdoors around you, unlike in a tent (and without worrying about waking up to a million mosquito bites or hungry bear hovering above you). The Carsule is light and easy to transport, plus it's simple to set up. As it's waterproof, you don't have to stress about the weather, and it offers UV protective coating, so you don't have to worry about sun damage, either.

"The design is a great idea, and it looks nifty when set up," one Amazon reviewer noted. At the same time, AskMen explained, "Its expansive space also allows for a nearly unlimited number of configurations."

No more envy over #VanLife Instagram accounts: Now, you can drive your car anywhere you want and pop out your Carsule whenever you're ready to sleep or relax. Usually $379, you can grab a CARSULE Pop-Up Cabin for Your Car for $279.99.
