Direct connection of a simple tent to a Hiace! What's the buzz about a tent that can become a personal space anywhere?
CARSULE, an unusual pop-up tent that can be connected to a car, is sold by HNY Trading Corporation in Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture.
CARSULE is a pop-up tent that can be connected to a car, designed by MOGICS, a company based in Singapore.
This product has been popular overseas, and Mr. Otsuki, the representative of HNY Trading, has signed an exclusive contract to sell this product in Japan.
The tent features a cubic shape, which is unusual for a tent, and is 2 meters high, making it less oppressive and more comfortable than a regular triangular tent.
The tent is equipped with three large mesh screen windows that prevent insects from entering and allow you to enjoy the view outside.
It is also very compact, measuring only 86cm in diameter and 13cm thick when stored, so it can be kept in a corner of your car at all times.
One of the best features of the Carsl is that it can be connected by opening the back door of the car, which makes it easier and more compact than a normal tent.
Cars that can be connected to the CarSle are models with a back door width of 1.8m or less, a vehicle height of 2m or less, and a height of 2m or less when the back door is open.
To give a concrete example, CarSle can be connected to minivans and SUVs such as the Nissan Serena, Mazda CX-5, Toyota Sienta, and Honda Vezel.
In addition to the demand for outdoor activities in recent years, Carsl has been featured in many media, and it seems to be a popular product.
Mr. Otsuki, the representative of HNY Trading Co.
We started selling this product in September 2020 through a crowdfunding campaign in the form of pre-orders.
After we started selling the product, we received a much better response than we had expected, selling 790 units, which was more than we had expected.
At present, production itself is not keeping pace with the demand, so we are selling the products on a pre-order basis.
I think the reason why the product is selling so well has to do with the growing demand for outdoor activities due to the new coronavirus.
More and more people are going outdoors rather than going indoors to play at commercial facilities, etc., and I feel that these users are purchasing our products.
We feel that these users are buying our products.
Carsl, a tent that can be connected to a car, is a spacious and convenient tent that is easy to set up and dismantle.
In addition, they are compact enough to fit in a small amount of storage space in a car, so as more and more people focus on traveling by car, demand for a casual outdoor experience is likely to continue to grow.
