    I want to go camping myself
    I am thinking how to convert my 2013 Prius C to camper

    background information
    • I am 5 ft 8 inch (This is important because I want to put a mattress inside my car)
    • want to go 3-5 days trips

    Things that I want and the difficulties are
    • I did measurement. I think my Prius can put 5 ft 2 inch in the rear seats are flipped down.
    • I want to make sure that the conversion would be easier reversable because my car is also my family car
    • I am not sure how to let air in to the car at night. I don't want to open a big window gap to let insect get into the car.

    Do you think that Prius C can support a roof top tent?

    For the air circulation, do a search here and a general web search for Prius camping. Sorry I can't refer you to specifics but I've read several different ways of having windows open and keeping bugs, rain and ice out.

    Easiest way I can think of to convert it to a camper. Drive to a camper store. Trade it in for a camper. :D Sorry, I know this doesn't help, but I couldn't stop myself.
