Let's use this thread to collect examples of customized hard sided truck campers. Their owners started with commercially available truck chassis and campers, then modified them to significantly improve their capability for overland adventures.
These large campers trade ultimate off-road capability for lots of room, comfort and convenience. They are particularly useful for a traveling family. I'm including the heavy pop-up campers in this section, since they require a stout chassis.
I want to limit this section for vehicles that have customized chassis and/or campers. And I'd like to direct chat about the examples to their respective build threads.
Here's one example of a customized truck camper, designed for adventure travel:
