Sure, this vintage, retro teardrop camper is utterly adorable -- but is it functional? Just wait until you see all the things it can do!

In the video below, Gidget's owner takes you on a tour of the tiny camper, lounges on the bed inside, pulls out all the multi-purpose shelving and compartments... and by the end, I guarantee you'll want one of these for yourself. After I saw how it functions as a home, that's when I really fell in love.

Designed to provide everything a traveler would need to hit the road for a weekend or a long trip, Gidgets are self-sufficient and environmentally friendly. Complete with a water and waste tank, and made with salvaged natural timbers or sustainable suppliers, they come with fully-functioning technology and anti-theft device, with flashing lights and sound SOS plus panic button inside. Passengers feel safe and secure while traveling. The Gidget also boasts a large glass cooktop stove with fully-functional kitchen. You can sleep under a million stars with the 1500mm wide skylight, watch TV in bed, or rotate the entertainment console to the outside and enjoy a game or movie night with your family and friends. Oh, and get a great night's sleep in a comfy queen size bed!

Gidgets are made and sold in Australia, but many people in the US are starting to closely follow the brand, hoping to snag one of these adorable campers.

Enjoy the tour, and please SHARE this video with your friends!
