Frequently Asked Questions
Should a vehicle with FLIP Camping Box or FLIP Adventure Bed additionally be approved?
No, FLIP products are installed or better said secured in a vehicle like any other luggage should be. It does not interfere with the vehicle and does not change it in any way.
Which vehicles are compatible with FLIP Camping Box and FLIP Adventure Bed?
We have developed and designed FLIP Camping Box and Adventure Bed to perfectly fit into over 60 different cars. You can check to see if it fits into yours here. If the Camping Box fits Adventure Bed fits as well and vice versa.
What is the main difference between FLIP Camping Box and FLIP Adventure Bed?
FLIP Adventure Bed doesn’t have the organised space beneath the bed. No drawers, boxes, sinks, or fridge like in FLIP Camping Box, so you can organise it on your own based on your needs, which mainly depend on what your hobbies are :-).
How big, comfy and durable is the bed? Is it the same for FLIP Camping Box and Adventure Bed?
Extractable bed that is made of anodized lightweight but strong aluminum profiles and crosses for extra strength is fully adjusted to the maximum width and length of your car. The size of the bed is the same for the Camping Box and for the Adventure Bed.
Comfortable cushions are made of breathable foam with durable covers and embedded wooden panels for perfect stability.
Recommended load for the bed is not to exceed 220 kilograms. 1 kilogram is 2,20462 pounds.
How is FLIP Camping Box or Adventure Bed mounted in the vehicle?
The FLIP products are designed to be located behind the rear seats (in most cars; depending on the model) and fits tightly between the two sides of the car boot and does not move while driving. In case you remove rear seats from the vehicle your FLIP product should be anchored to existing anchoring points in the vehicle with certified straps. Anchoring is recommended also when seats stay in the car.
Where should I store my luggage, since FLIP Camping Box occupies the entire trunk?
There is enough space in the FLIP itself to store cooking utensils – containers, cutlery, food, spices, etc. Personal items (clothing, cosmetics, etc.) are stored in the rest of the vehicle (most often under the bed – you can take rear seats out of the vehicle to gain more space). A rooftop cargo carrier, which could also be practical for personal luggage, has proved to be the most useful for larger pieces of luggage (camping table, chairs, inflatable SUP…).
How heavy is FLIP Camping Box? Can I put it in a car on my own?
Of course, innovative plug&play design is its main advantage. Namely, it consists of two modules, which you place individually in the vehicle. In addition, you can also take drawers from the modules, making it easier to carry FLIP Camping Box around. In each wooden module we also incorporated convenient recesses for easier handling.
A weight depends on the FLIP model. The weight of wooden crates, along with the technique, the drawers and the mechanism for the bed, ranges somewhere between 30 and 50 kilograms per set (i.e. 15-25 kilograms per element). Cushions weigh around 10-18 kilograms.
1 kilogram is 2,20462 pounds.
How heavy is FLIP Adventure Bed? Can I put it in a car on my own?
It is indeed very easy. The weight of the frame is 19kg as the weight of the cushions weigh the same as for the FLIP Camping box.
Where are FLIP products made?
FLIP products are proudly designed and made in Slovenia. All the materials being used are either from local suppliers in Slovenia or from the trusted suppliers from the EU member states such as Germany, Austria and Italy.
Will I drain a battery using a water pump that is installen in a FLIP Camping Box?
The water pump has extremely low power consumption and with normal use does not drain the battery.
How long can I leave the cooling box attached to the 12V in the vehicle while the vehicle is standing? I don’t want to drain the battery.
This depends on the size and power of the cooling box, the capacity of your starter battery in the vehicle and the surrounding temperature. We recommend leaving it plugged in as little time as possible (when the vehicle’s motor is not on) as it can drain your battery in a few hours.
We recommend an additional portable battery.
