Double up your daily driver into an overnighter with a slide-out cooking station

The VanLab Base station is designed for ultimate flexibility:

-        If you want to travel with 5 seats

-        If you want to easily fit/remove a conversion for the weekends

-        If you want to go camping, but don’t want a full ‘campervan’

-        If you want a camping option for your SUV, station wagon, MPV or 4x4

-        If you want a conversion kit to fit (almost) any vehicle

-        If you want to turn your station wagon into a 4-berth suite for the family       (throw the kids in a tent….!) 

Our VanLab Base Station is designed to turn your station wagon, MPV, SUV or 4x4 into an overnighter, with a slide-out cook station. This kit is designed for people who want flexibility. Throw it in your boot, head off on an adventure, and then take it out at the end of the weekend. When stowed, the Base Station will fit in your boot, leaving room for 5 to travel.  

You just need a boot space of at least 1.02m wide, 0.75m deep and 0.54m high and you’re good to go! In typical VanLab fashion, its available in an easy build, flatpack, kit set.

THE BED

At night, simply slide the bed support forwards to create a king single bed; 1.8m long by 1.1m wide. We designed the base station to work with your existing camping mat or inflatable mattress, and it works great with a double too. It’s a comfy space for one, or a cosy space for 2. So, just roll out or inflate your bed, choose a partner and dive in! 

At the front, the bed is supported by adjustable height legs and then an extension strut. This allows the camping station to be setup on a flat floor, like a van, or on top of folded seats like a station wagon. It takes just 2mins to setup the bed.

THE KITCHEN

The kitchen is the most important part of camp. We designed a slide out kitchen drawer using premium heavy duty locking drawer slides, capable of 150kgs. 

Just unlock the runners and slide your kitchen unit out the back of your car, where it can lock into place. You can then choose how to setup your benchtop, with our unique slotting table supports and benchtop wings. For longer vehicles, you can run the benchtop wings on the back of the drawer and for shorter vehicles, you can run them on the side. This means we have a range of configurations available to setup your camp stove, chopping boards, cooking implements, drinks tray, prep station, chilly bin or anything else you can think of.  These wings easily slot into place by hand (you can leave the tools at home) and stow away in the drawer when travelling. 

Inside your drawer you have two 106L sections, each measuring 43cm wide, 60cm long and 41cm high; perfect for all your camping paraphernalia.

At bed time, just slide the drawer back into place and extend the bed out. Simple, easy and comfortable. 

STORAGE

The drawers give you 212L of storage capacity. 

PORTABLE

We’ve cut some handy lifting holds into the kit, so you can easily load/unload from your car. 

WEIGHT

The kit comes in at 60kgs.

ASSEMBLY TYPE

Following our tried and tested VanLab Flatpack kit-set concept, the Base Station is sold as a flatpack kit for you to assemble at home. We can pre-build for collection from Auckland (additional cost).

MATERIAL

The Base Station is made from a high quality hardwood plywood core, with a High Pressure Laminate finish. High quality, strong and durable. A material we're using exclusively for this product. 

This kit is designed to offer option for easy camping with a smaller vehicle. As such, this is not self-contained and advised for camp ground use.
