This little pop-top camper might not look like much from the outside, but for 22 year old Lily Kemp it’s home. For her it means freedom and provides an escape from the rent trap.

With prices in Auckland City (New Zealand) going through the roof Lily spent just $1500 to buy and do up an old pop-top camper that she now lives in for a fraction of her previous rent. Best of all, she still gets to enjoy all the benefits of central city living.
She now has a space that she can truly call her own, decorate however she likes and even take away with her on holiday or if she moves. The camper contains almost everything that Lily needs, including a galley kitchen, fridge and gas stove.
Although she is able to use the kitchen inside the main house, she seldom does.The whole pop top camper is powered via a very simple PV system, which Lily picked up on TradeMe for only $60. Amazingly, this is able to power all of her electrical needs, charging her cell phone, battery bank and powering a fan and the LED camper lights.
