    Default Syncro Doka Double Cab

    Very unique and looks well executed.

    Saw it on Samba

    Very cool in almost ever aspect-except the lack of windows! I think I would have put several in the lift-up walls or the camper walls so the pop-up panels cover them but maybe they had their reasons. Also, it appears the only entrance/exit is via the pass-through. Space-saving, but claustrophobic! Maybe the shower is also an entry?

    Yeah, that's one cool truck.

    I guess having the pass-through as the only entrance enhances security, but it sure seems like it would be a pain. I think I would have made the table easily movable / removable, and done a rear entrance.

    Even a small door, just in the lower (non-moving) section of the back wall, would have been better than loading clothes and groceries through the truck cab, in my mind.

    Cool looking rig regardless.

    I like it a lot as well. I would want a hatch over the bed for emergency egress at least. I was also really surprised to see that the spare tire on the back lifted up with the top - probably there was not enough strength in the rear section to have it mounted to the lower section? He does state that the camper itself weighs about 1200 lbs.

    Also not sure what the crank is next to the stove in the following picture?

    Would love to see something similar to this for a Jeep Unlimited... but it would need to be built much lighter of course. I think it would be possible to do since the "shell" wouldn't need to be very structural since the bed would be supported mostly by the roll bar similar to the action camper and ursa minor.

    That is cool, think I would ditch that toilet and shower, that takes up an awful lot of room.

    Right- I think I would have made due with some sort of outside bathing arrangement. IN a camper that small, living space seems more important to me.

    Yeah, that whole toilet next to the cooking area, kinda weirds me out.

    I have one of those shower/toilet privies that sets up in seconds...keeps the "smell" out of the living area too.

    Seems like in this arrangement you could start your coffee while taking care of "regular" morning business
