Ragnhild Lübbert Terpling Urban Sleeper

The Terpling Urban Sleeper is one of the only fully folding, free standing, self-contained designs currently in existence.

Its convenient design allows for the unit to be packed up within a matter of seconds if required.

The structural poles for the design are built in and none-removable but I can’t help but feel that there would be more structural integrity if the poles were angled and met at the top of the frame.

Pros

  • Compact Design
  • Freestanding
  • Large front opening
  • No assembly required
  • Contained structural elements
  • Fully Waterproof
  • Design allows for excess water to drip off naturally. Plenty of ventilation will prevent mildew forming.

Cons

  • Due to folding design it’s harder to build in a roll mat
  • Limited visibility top and behind
  • Lack of ventilation
  • Hot in summer
  • Could collapse (domino effect) under high winds/rain
  • Not kept taught length ways
  • No mosquito nets
