German business Owomo is hunting to simplify the establish-your-personal camper/foundation camp course of action with a collection of plywood panels that serve as lids for the popular grey Eurobox. The panels and accompanying equipment interconnect like puzzle pieces, developing essential household furniture these kinds of as beds, tables and lounge chairs. With a several Euroboxes and a several hundred euros' worth of Owomo panels, you can develop a modular indoor/out of doors camper floor system with loads of transportable cargo storage.
We have included dozens of automobile-to-camper RV add-ons, camper-in-a-box kits, modular in-automobile beds, airline-ready suitcase campers, and even at least one camper-in-a-bag, but Owomo's procedure appears to be the easiest possible remedy. It reminds us a great deal of an additional modular German camper package we covered a number of a long time again, the Cübes technique from Camp It Straightforward, but in its place of developing its possess proprietary bins and lids, Owomo depends on the standard cargo packing containers already pretty ubiquitous in European tenting and overlanding.
Each Owomo panel will work as a snug-fitting lid for a 60 x 40-cm (24 x 16-in, W x L) Eurobox, its rectangular base floor fitting securely inside the box to create a easy building block. The jigsaw puzzle-like edges stick out so that the panels can safe together to generate flat surfaces. The height of the boxes should not subject so extensive as they're the exact same or various in a way which is appropriate with what you are constructing.
Over and above filling out the inside of a cargo van with a total-width sleeping system ready to be topped by an inflatable or folding mattress, Owomo demonstrates its two-component constructing blocks being used to make a variety of models of in-van and out of doors benches, facet tables, desks, chairs, cabinets and solo beds. It even stacks many Euroboxes into an out of doors bar.
The Owomo panels remind us a good deal of the puzzle-like multicolor foam participate in mats that line the flooring of quite a few a daycare center and pediatrician waiting around location, but Owomo's layout is, of system, a heavier duty building. Each and every 1.8-cm-thick (.7-in) panel is designed from Beech plywood, and when it seems to be rather lightweight, a one panel weighs shut to 3 kg (6.5 lb), far more than the standard Euro box by itself.
In addition to the perforated panel pictured, which capabilities a central pull manage for simple removing, Owomo features a sound panel for the development of Do it yourself modules these types of as an inset sink or stove and a set of back again supports that prop up a panel to make a seat again. The panels price tag between €59 and €69 (US$65 and $76), dependent on design and style, and the back supports price tag €49 (US$54) for each pair.
Owomo estimates that 10 panels will operate very well for filling out the inside of a total-measurement van like the VW Crafter or Mercedes Sprinter with a 205 x 125-cm (81 x 49-in) sleeping system, so you're hunting at €590 (US$649) for the panels in addition the price of the containers, if you don't currently individual them. Over and above camping, the made-in-Germany Owomo system can be utilised for commercial needs, this sort of as to create a workbench out of crates crammed with equipment.
The video beneath does a awesome position demonstrating how the Owomo panels renovate essential cargo boxes into quite a few designs of useful household furniture.
