Tesla began selling tents for the Cybertruck, which turned out to be nothing like the ones advertised

Tesla has started shipping Basecamp, a $3,000 Cybertruck tent. The first buyers note the high quality of the construction, materials and accessories of the tent, but admit that the final product was not at all similar to what the company showed in the advertisement at first.

Basecamp is part of a series of accessories planned by Tesla for the Cybertruck back in 2019. According to the original concept, Basecamp looked like a tent, the design of which followed the overall design of the Cybertruck.

Last week, the company began installing Basecamp in some customers’ cars. Judging by the photo from the reviews, the appearance of the awning is far from the advertising concept.

However, as the buyer under the nickname TownBiz writes, Basecamp is made quite qualitatively.

“The materials and fittings of the tent (zippers, flaps, tubular card etc.) seem really high quality and well made, as you would expect from a premium Heim Planet brand. The view from the tent windows is simply fantastic, and the window fasteners are thought out to the smallest detail. The mattress is a foam cushion about 4-5 cm thick, segmented so that the tent can be folded,” the buyer points out.

He also noted that it is not difficult to take down and fold the tent, although it can be difficult to pack a folded tent into a cover.

“I still can’t say for sure if I recommend Basecamp. $3,000 is a lot of money, and it can buy you a lot of great hiking gear. However, I don’t think $3,000 for a high quality body tent is that crazy.”
