Life on the road is appealing to many of us outdoors folks who have dedicated our lives in search of the next adventure. Whether you’re a hiker, climber, backpacker, mountain biker, or paddler – we all dream of more comfortable ways to spend our nights in the outdoors besides sleeping in a tent. Whether you’re ready to jump into life on the road, full-time, part-time, or just on the occasional weekend, we have good news for you. The FIETE lightweight cabin attaches to SUVs and is an on-the-go cabin that provides comfortable sleeping, a toilet, shower, and full kitchen for two people and is the ultimate comfort on all your adventures. SUV owners who aren’t interested in a build-out and have been searching for a cabin or camper option for their vehicle should read on!
The German company GEHOcab is all about designing lightweight carbon-fiber cabins to attach to vehicles – mainly pickups and SUVs. If you aren’t an SUV owner, they potentially have an option for your car as well. However, we’ll be discussing the FIETE today. This cabin is incredibly compact. The floor-length is just over four feet, but there is a table, chairs, a sliding bathroom, and a small kitchen in that space. Even in a small area, the FIETE provides all you need. The additional bed space is approximately four and a half feet by six and a half feet. You can still sleep comfortably – provided you aren’t seven feet tall! The standing height in the living space is a little over 6 feet, so if you’re on the taller side, you may want to request additional height from GEHOcab. There is a sliding wall that extends the bathroom space so you can comfortably shower, which is often a rare luxury when you’re out in the middle of nowhere!
Besides the creative use of space, this cabin provides some attractive features to make a nomadic life more comfortable. The cabin boasts a luggage flap in the rear for additional storage, so your living space doesn’t feel cluttered. Your cabin also comes with frost-proof water tanks that store 23 gallons of freshwater, enough for extended time away from a water source. For consistent power, you have a built-in battery and solar panels. A kitchenette with two drawers, a gas cooker, and a compressor cooler round out the cabin’s rear. One of our favorite luxuries of this cabin, which are hard to find, is the cassette toilet and openable shower. No more hole digging or baby wipe showers when you’re in the great outdoors when you bring your FIETE along.
For a whopping $123,095, you can have a FIETE of your own for all your off-road adventures. While this is a high price to pay for off-road luxury, you are getting many features not available in other campers and cabins, and the FIETE is much lighter than its competitors at 242 pounds when dry. If you’re ready to purchase a FIETE for your SUV, the first step is to get in contact with GEHOcab via their website to make sure your vehicle is the right fit for the camper. If you’re ready for the ultimate off-road luxury and you’ve got the coin and an SUV – the FIETE is an excellent choice for you.
