So can you convert a Toyota Matrix or similar compact hatchback into a camping vehicle? Yes. Should you? Maybe.
So this is kind of a build video? I guess… When we were going nuts trapped in our 9-5, we needed to escape, and this beast (and beauty) of a vehicle was our vessel to greener pastures (and desert climates).
We managed to pack 4 seasons of sporting equipment, camping gear, clothes, food, and the most basic of necessities into this car – all while still leaving configurable space to sleep.
Was it comfortable? Yea, surprisingly.
Was it convenient? Definitely not.
Would we do it again? Heck yea.
