WASHINGTON, D.C. — Garrett Finney used to work for NASA designing living spaces on the International Space Station. In 2009, he left to build lightweight campers, and after a few years and a few models, came up with the FireFly, writes Technabob.

The camper fits into the bed of a truck or onto the back of a small trailer, says Technabob. Built primarily from aluminum and EPS foam, it weighs just 600 pounds.
