Carbon-Fiber Campers suitable for the source vehicle

The Badger camper is a new line of campers offered by GEO-cab that installs directly to the source vehicle, even a smaller truck or SUV. Thanks to carbon fiber construction inside and out, the campers don’t add a significant amount of mass to their donor vehicles. The Badger is at the same time lightweight and strong because of its structure.

Who is GEO-cab

GEO-cab is the North American partner of GEHOcab GmbH. GEHOcab had great success with the KORA monocoque carbon fiber cab on the Volkswagen Amarok, designed to handle the extreme elements of off-road environments. The Badger’s design takes what was learned on the KORA and applies it to a much wider range of source vehicles.

Composition

The Badger has a full carbon fiber construction shell designed with a carbon fiber exterior with a honeycomb structure. A layer of carbon fiber on the interior further strengthens the camper. The cabin shell is manufactured by GEO-cab’s German aerospace partner INVENT and OFFROAD-MANUFAKTUR and will be built in collaboration between the German and U.S. facilities.
