The minivan-based camper was created by White House and can sleep up to four adults
The sixth generation of the Honda Step WGN served as a base for a very cool-looking camper by a Japanese company called White House. The model will debut at this year’s Japan Camping Car Show, adding a pop-up roof, swivel seats, and a fully-equipped kitchenette to the already practical interior of the three-row minivan.
The model is part of the “Deck One” camper series and is called “Pop Joy” due to the pop-up roof. The latter increases the height of the vehicle to 2,045 mm (80.5 inches) but follows the simple lines of the original design, blending with the bodywork in the closed position. When it opens up, it increases the interior space of the Step WGN, making room for a double bed measuring 1,880 by 1,030 mm (74 x 40.6 inches).

Inside the cabin, the seats can fold flat, creating a second double bed. As a result, the Honda Step WGN “Pop Joy” can sleep up to four adults, or two adults and two children during the family vacation.
The seats of the driver and the front passenger can swivel 180 degrees, combined with a table/desk. Campers usually get hungry which is why White House added a fully equipped kitchenette. This is mounted at the back and includes a microwave oven, a gas stove burner, a portable fridge, a small sink, an extra storage compartment, and a sliding kitchen countertop that can also serve as a dining table.
In Japan, the sixth-gen Honda Step WGN is available with a turbocharged 1.5-liter VTEC engine or with the hybrid 2.0-liter e:HEV powertrain. The minivan comes in RWD and AWD flavors making it a perfect vehicle for camping trips.
Pricing for the Honda Step WGN “Popjoy” ranges from ¥3,592,600 ($27,736) all the way up to ¥6,044,500 ($46,684) depending on the trim of the donor vehicle. The camper will make its public debut at this year’s Japan Camping Car Show, held at Makauhari Messe near Tokyo between February 4 and 6.
