Netherlands-based Haaks has created a tiny two-story sustainable camper home on wheels.

Haaks was first started in 2017 when its founders Pim Gijsbers and Jules Luijpen decided that they wanted to find an original product to bring to the camper market. Now, the company has two camper home models and a "Nano House" unit.

The company designed its flagship Opperland camper around three central themes: comfort, sustainability, and freedom, according to a YouTube video linked on Haaks' website. These themes can all be seen throughout the camper van, from its two-story concept to the sourcing of its materials to the flexibility of the unit and vehicle.

The Opperland camper unit comes with a wood-detailed Fiat Ducato that the tiny home was designed to travel on.

In total, the camper and its Ducato base starts at €129,982, about $142,690, including Netherland's private motor vehicle and motorcycle tax (BPM) and the European Union's value-added tax (VAT). Haaks is also considering creating a rental option.

For example, there are solar panels on the tiny home, and its wooden walls — which are processed to allow it to stay rot-free for 25 years — come from "well-managed sources," according to Haaks.
