The idea for the modular Nestbox came when one of Egoe nest’s founders purchased a motorhome, but found several restrictions with its large size and clunky handling, according to the company’s website. To address these issues, the Czech Republic-based company built easily installable modular boxes of varying sizes that contain the typical camper van and motorhome amenities, all inside of one unit.
While the idea of a trunk-extended camper box isn’t new, the Nestbox design won its makers the Red Dot Design Award pick for the “Best of the Best” category this year after the judges deemed the modular setup a “new aesthetic for self-determined traveling,” according to its award page.
All of Egoe nest’s products, including the Nestbox, are made in the Czech Republic, but the company has around 20 dealerships across the world. Since its unveiling, the Nestbox has become popular in its home country, Slovakia, western Europe, and South Korea, although the camper box is also now available in the US by popular demand, according to its maker.
