How To Poop While Car Camping/Overlanding

How To Poop While Car Camping/Overlanding


When Nature calls by dialing # 2, sometimes it's hard to answer the call when you're car camping/overlanding in your SUV/van...

Of course you can always do the most natural thing by assuming the squat position ( or other 2 variations used by hikers/backpackers/climbers )


When you're just bending over you risk getting poop on your shoes or the back of your pants, and when you lean against a tree you risk scraping your back on the bark of the tree, or you risk slipping and falling right into your feces.

Here are a few better options :

Tesla CyberTruck With Rooftop Tent or 5th Wheel ?

On November 21st, Tesla revealed its newest invention - the long-awaited electric pickup truck "Cybertruck" ! And it looks nothing like any pickup truck you've ever seen !

Tesla Images


Elon Musk stood on stage and declared this to be the truck that Tesla is offering, and the one you can put a deposit down on now to buy. A $100 fully refundable deposit gets your name on the list for the late-2021 or early-2022 production for the top-of-the-line model.

There will be three basic configurations of the Tesla Cybertruck. The base single-motor RWD version will start at $39,900 and get you 250-plus-mile range, a towing capacity of over 7,500 pounds, and a sub-6.5-second 0-60mph time.

The midrange, dual-motor AWD Cybertruck will start at $49,900 and get you 300-plus-mile range, 10,000-plus-pound towing, and a sub-4.5-second 0-60mph time.

And the top-of-the-line Tesla Cybertruck will start at $69,900, offer over 500 miles of range, 14,000-plus pounds of towing capacity, and go 0-60 mph in under 2.9 seconds.

I'm not sure if it's worth the money...

BUT...

Maybe if Tesla CyberTrcuk comes with a rooftop tent, and a slide-out kitchen it will sweeten the deal  πŸ€” ?

Tesla CyberTruck With Rooftop Tent

Or would you rather use your  CyberTrcuk to tow an RV or a 5th wheel ?
A U.K. YouTuber unveiled a rendering for a Tesla pull-behind camper designed specifically for the Cybertruck. And it looks as wild as the truck itself.
“I’ve got some exciting news: I’ve just bought a Cybertruck from Tesla,” MotorHomeMan said on his latest video. “I had this lightbulb moment — maybe I could use this as a motorhome or a truck to tow an RV or a fifth-wheel.”


According to the electric-power news site Electrek, Tesla founder Elon Musk teased a “sick attachment for the Cybertruck,” further fueling speculation around a potential pull-behind. Plus, the brand touted the Cybertruck’s more than 14,000-pound towing capacity at its launch event last month.

Musk already confirmed that Tesla Cybertruck will be offered with a solar roof option to add some solar-powered range to the electric pickup truck.

With a trailer adding a lot of roof surfaces, you could add a much more powerful solar system and trickle charge the battery pack of the Cybertruck in order to compensate for some of the efficiency loss that comes with a trailer.

Tesla could design its own trailer with solar and even an extra battery pack to match the Cybertruck’s design, but if they don’t, the market will take care of it.

Is this the future of RV/travel trailers πŸ€” ?

Best Roof Top Tents : Tepui Ruggedized Kukenam Rooftop Tent

Rough, tough, and ready for a cross-country adventure, the Tepui Kukenam Ruggedized 3-Person 4-Season Tent is the next best thing to owning a camper van without it costing you an arm and leg !

The “ruggedized” designation means it comes with diamond-plated aluminum flooring and a condensation mat that keeps your mattress off moisture that may form on the floor, a great upgrade.
The Ruggedize  Kukenam Roof Top Tent is the toughest roof top tent on the market. It is perfect for 4x4 trailers and tough off-road rigs.

Features :
  • Two built-in screened SKY panels which allow for a great view of the stars and surrounding trees when the rainfly is removed
  • Diamond Plate Base
  • 360g Dual Stitched Fabric (40% heavier than standard models)
  • Anti-condensation mat (1/2") under the mattress
  • Fully wrapped 3/4" heavy duty internal frame
  • Heavy duty 3-bolt hinges and welded aluminum base construction
  • Extra-large internal pockets, gear anchor points, and bedding straps
The Kukenam Ruggedized SKY Roof top Tent comes with a durable Diamond Plate Base designed to resist all kinds of branch hits and other unpredictable eventualities of a heavy off road experience.

Even the dual stitched fabric is 40% heavier and stronger than in standard models! It comes with a new anti-condensation 1/2" mat under the mattress, large internal pockets, gear anchor points and bedding straps. To top this amazing features, it has two build-in screened SKY panels that will let you see a fantastic view of the stars and surroundings.

Cons :

The Tepui Kukenam is a bomber structure, with much, much heavier materials than a standard camp tent. The poles and fabric are many times thicker and stronger than even a rugged camping tent.

With its weight of ~ 172 lbs, it's not an easy task to install it on your car, and you'll need the help of a strong friend ( or two ! ).

Best Pro :

This roof top tent is crazy comfortable !

The Tepui Kukenam is very spacious, at 56 x 96 x 52 inches (L x W x H). It feels grandiose for two people, and would be sufficient for three (although snug). There are lots of pockets to organize gear, and even one large enough to stow sneakers.

Memory foam mattress :

Sleeping pads for camping have come a long way in the last few years. But they can’t match up to the memory foam mattress in the Kukenam !

Memory foam is heavy, but oh, so comfy. The Kukenam’s footprint is 56″ x 96″, which is 16″ longer than a standard mattress and between a full and queen in width. So there’s plenty of room for two adults to stretch out. Three would be a squeeze, but you can do it if you’re really friendly.

All in all, the Tepui  Ruggedized Kukenam rooftop tent would be the right choice for someone with a large SUV or a truck.
