Following success with the Good Design Awards based in Australia, AIR OPUS was nominated by the German Design Council for entry into the German Design Awards 2018.

Campfire Magazine first discovered our OPUS Camper a few years ago, and it soon featured in a review of ‘cool campers’. This time they comment “Our winner, by a wide margin, is the utterly fantastic OPUS. So, why the OPUS? Well, for its looks, its ease-of-opening, its build quality and its all-round versatility. Price isn’t bad either. In appearance, it’s a mix of a safari tent and sci-fi – airy, spacious and with options and accessories to suit family size ( four to ten berth) and your camping and outdoor life. The kitchens are beautiful, the beds comfortable and the sitting/dining room made for socialising. What’s more, the new AIR OPUS inflates itself in two minutes. It’s lightweight and low-profile and the racking system means you can load it with bikes, kayaks and more for your travels.
Taking to the Live Stage on Sunday 22nd October the crowds gathered in anticipation for the product reveal. Katy and Brett from OPUS HQ introduced the Off-Road Concept, using AIR pole technology to inflate the camper. Due to expansion across Europe the Off-Road Concept is intended for production in due course. Following the reveal Steve Groves, Winner of Masterchef: The Professionals used the external pull out kitchen of the Off-Road Concept to cook up a tasty mackerel and herb salad taco. Steve commented “If I was going to cook outside, this is the kind of set up I would want. Its nearly as well equipped as my kitchen at home – it’s a breeze!”
At a first glance the AIR OPUS looks like an ordinary trailer. But with the push of a button it inflates itself at lightening speed to a four berth camper with kitchenette.
Anyone who seems a car towing an AIR OPUS may think that it is a normal folding camper, but nothing is less true. In this trailer there is luxury accommodation that inflates in around 90 seconds using an internal pump.
Editor Rafał Jemielita comments on the comfort offered inside the AIR OPUS, along with the leatherette seating area, 240v power, microwave, gas stove with options including USB ports and audio systems.

Claire Maxted discovers if an AIR OPUS camper is the perfect base for outdoor adventures. “The AIR OPUS Camper is a great alternative to a caravan. It’s lighter, quicker and more rugged to tow, smaller to store, quick to set up and gives much more space than a camper van. It’s definitely worth investigating if you’re adventurous but want to come back to luxury, spacious dining and sleeping”.
The trend-setting AIR OPUS Self-Inflating Camper has added a Good Design Award to its accolades in Australia’s internationally coveted 2017 Good Design Awards. Only the Tesla Model X and semi-autonomous Caterpillar digger could beat the AIR OPUS for top honours in its category. Other winners in the category included global style and engineering leaders such as Audi and Mazda.
Camping in style has just been made easier than ever with the July launch of a revolutionary self-inflating trailer tent that looks set to give both traditional trailer tents and caravans a run for their money.

Any camping enthusiast knows that there is nothing worse than setting up a tent – except maybe doing so in the dark or the pouring rain. Trying to force the stakes into the ground, crawling around in the dirt and dealing with the ill-fitting canvas must be an ancient form of torture. British camping giant OPUS has developed a solution – The AIR OPUs Inflating Camping.
In the words of the German Design Council “Your extraordinary design expertise has attracted our attention: it has the potential to win one of the leading international design prizes.

FutureEnTech highlights technology to their followers. In their own words “AIR OPUS makes camping in style even easier for adventurers everywhere!”
Any seasoned camper knows that there’s nothing worse than having to set up a tent in the pouring rain, or even worse, in the dark. So, the British-designed camping brand OPUS has long been on a mission to make camping easier and launched their first trailer-to-tent vehicle some years back.
Air OPUS camping trailer inflates into a home away from home in 90 seconds. When we first discovered the British-designed OPUS camping trailer back in 2013, its combination of compact pop-up construction and comfy interior design made it one of our favourite campers of the year. Since then, the OPUS has gotten a few extra tricks up its sleeve including an all-new tent inflation system. With its integrated air poles, the new inflatable AIR OPUS trailer tent sets up in about a third the time of the original.
While we love camping more than most other getaways, there’s one part of it that we just don’t enjoy. We’re talking, of course, about pitching a tent. Dealing with the ill-fitting canvas exteriors, trying to tame the long and unwieldy poles, and driving stakes into the unwilling ground can turn any campsite oasis into a nightmare. But what if your tent could set itself up? Well, then you’d have the AIR OPUS Camper Trailer.
