AIR OPUS Debuts Self-Inflating Camper

Mon Jun 19, 2017

AIR OPUS has debuted its self-inflating camper that can be ready for campers in just 90 seconds. The AIR OPUS reduces overall setup time and removes the tradition of setting up poles. By just pressing a switch, an electric pump fitted inside the camper begins to inflate the tent.

What starts off as a crumpled up sleeping bag-looking tarp soon expands into an artsy, stylish silhouette, inspired by the Sydney Opera House, according to MRV The Buzz. The unique, sleek design and innovative simplicity of the AIR OPUS has caught the attention of Good Design Australia, which recently awarded the AIR OPUS a Good Design Selection in its Automotive and Transport product design category, where the AIR OPUS will be competing with well-known models like the Tesla Model X.

Available for full sale in late fall 2017, Purple Line is currently collecting forward orders on the product.
