OPUS Camper Unveils New Folding Camper Technology

Thu Jul 21, 2016

Pittsburg, California - OPUS Camper will be unveiling its new folding camper technology at the Dusseldorf CARAVAN SALON 2016 exhibition from Aug. 26-27.

This exciting, innovative technology will be further expanding on the product’s revolutionary design which blends practicality and functionality with style, comfort and luxury to provide a true “glamping” experience.

OPUS is a ground-breaking folding camper. It is ultra-lightweight and easy to tow even with a small vehicle. Its low profile allows for all round visibility, so you can hitch up and drive away with confidence. But don’t let its stature fool you. It is strong, rugged and extremely clever. With two reinforced lids and a universal racking system, OPUS is also the perfect load-carrying platform. Carry boats, bikes, kayaks, kites and adventure toys.

OPUS originated in the UK, shooting to stardom on the British version of ‘The Apprentice’ in 2013 and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Now a global brand with manufacturing outlets in Europe, Australia, South Africa and the United States, the OPUS design team has pulled the best bits from the American, European and Australian markets to build the next generation folding camper.
