Campers looking for portable shelter that is perfect for the lake will love this.

The Sealander is a camper that attaches to your car to easily take it on your next trip, but also turns into a small boat.

How it works: The Sealander attaches to vehicles with a tow hitch. When it's time to float, there is a portable propeller to attach, at which point the boat can be launched.

The design is deceptively small. The vessel only fits a couple of people at a time, but there is room for sleeping, cooking, lounging, and taking in the sights, both in the water and on land.
