Watch: Tiny Camper Is More Than It Seems

May 7, 2018 Updated: May 7, 2019

Update: The company that made the camper went out of business due to alleged mismanagement, and they’re no longer on sale.

At a first glance, this little camper looks like it might be good for an overnight trip.

After the woman pulls handle, it shows that the camper can expand to be much larger.

Even more surprising is that there’s a large bed with a flat-screen television inside.

According to the firm that made it, it has custom slide-out, designed to be towed behind a 4-cylinder car, a fuel-efficient design, easy to tow and move, fully insulated, and comes with a queen-size bed.

The ABC in Australia reported that Gidget, the manufacturer, “went into voluntary administration owing $3.5 million to investors and customers around the world” last year.

About 80 customers were left with about $1.5 million in unreturned deposits for the campers.

Even though Gidget went out of business, there are other firms that have picked up where the company left off.

Lower Car Insurance?

According to the Insurance Information Institute, there are, in fact, ways one can lower their car insurance costs.
“Prices vary from company to company, so it pays to shop around. Get at least three price quotes. You can call companies directly or access information on the Internet. Your state insurance department may also provide comparisons of prices charged by major insurers,” according to the website.

Meanwhile, before you buy a new car, compare the insurance prices.

“Car insurance premiums are based in part on the car’s price, the cost to repair it, its overall safety record and the likelihood of theft. Many insurers offer discounts for features that reduce the risk of injuries or theft,” its website says.
