Thanks for posting, awesome setup! Quick question comparing the van to the truck camper which has more room once set up. I m considering a 4x4 e350 eb converted to camper or truck plus pop up for family of 4 plus one more on the way. Thanks again
That's very interesting to read about you selling your SMB for this set up. I started out doing the trailer thing, Tenttrax, AT Chaser and finally a Kimberly Kamper, but sold them because I got tired of towing trailers off road. I decided to upgrade to a FWC with a diesel and after using it, I'm really pleased with it, but kept thinking a SMB might be better. The walk through was the most attractive feature.
I dig your build.
7.3 Super Duty, 4X4, Ext Cab Shortbed, 6 Spd Manual. Hawk FWC
2006 Jeep Unlimited
Lexus is250 AWD (Hers)
1980 HJ45 Diesel LBP (Sold to some dude in Utah)
1984 Troopy, ExPo White (Sold to the same dude in Utah that bought my other dream truck)
Kimberly Kamper (Sold to the Toyota Shaman)
the pop up is bigger by far...4 plus 1 is going to be tight for sure....but if you just need bed down space you will be fine either way. The pop up is just more user friendly and you still have a truck at the end of the day.
Yeah...we did the trailer thing too. They are great to stake claim to a great camp spot...you can leave behind and head out to explore. It is the times when your on a trail that turns into a sucker hole and you get all jammed up in a trail....not fun man handling the trailer. The SMB walk threw was great.... when it is blowing snow or piss'n rain, you cant beat it. We can set up our pop up and close it up faster than our electric top on our SMB.....I still would not go back to the van
Thanks for responding, and again awesome set up!
no problem. I just got all of my solar fired up and working. We are off to the white rim and the surrounding area for 2 weeks as of tomorrow. I will be with 2 sportsmobiles...hope to see some of yall out there or along the way.
Great looking rig!
I dig it.
