    DIY Composite Flatbed Camper Build

    Since you are over in Idaho, call FMI. They are in Post Falls and Jerome. They mold the Fox Blocks I use for concrete homes and I have had them cut sheets of foam 1 and 1/4" thick for our horse trailer. I even had them cut the Neopor for the higher R factor. I am not sure they sell to the...

    "No More Projects!", says I. And then...1972 Superior 2200. Couldn't pass it up.

    I am getting a real kick out of this read. I resurrected a 1978 GMC Royale and faced a lot of these exact challenges. Yes, it had the "poop burner" into the exhaust and the hot water heated off the engine. I sold some of the original hubcaps on Ebay and went for some 16 inch Alcoa wheels...

    Cirrus 800 Truck Camper

    I thought for the closeout special $, they were pretty nice, but since no longbox version, they were off my list. I watched a series of videos from the factory and was pretty impressed with the build. I like the Euro style and the thinking that gets away from the 'traditional' propane...

    96' Ford 7.3 diesel 4x4 with Lazy daze Camper ..opinion on value

    I would think any solid truck camper would be worth a minimum of 3-4k. Since it has been stored inside, it probably has not leaked and is not dry rotted (both of those conditions is what sinks them). My question about the camper is "where are the jacks"? Does it come off the truck, or is it...

    Bundutec Hardside Campers BunduVry?

    CCH, I just don't see the value in having a ton of dealers. For those of us who have owned various campers, repaired them, etc. we know how things go together and are pretty self sufficient, plus we have our own ideas of what we want. When you are out in the middle of nowhere, what can a...

    C5500 TopKick 4x4 Crew Cab Build

    Impressive Video If I did not know any better, I thought I was watching an Alberta Tourism video. Extremely well done and great drone flying shots! That young man is going to do quite well with that ability. Must have some good parenting!

    Can't find what I want so the build begins.

    Sweet Build Boxcar, great build and excellent restoration of the boat. I ran a Johnson Red/White 10 HP motor forever on a 14' Alumnacraft. I liked it because it was a 1958-just like me:). But I did not like portaging it-those old motors are heavy! Up on the shoulder with one of those...

    DE VII - Big Skies Trip Report

    Nice Road Trip I enjoyed reading your road trip, and thought it was neat to get it from different perspectives. Friends of ours used to live in Dillon and Great Falls, so we have been in a lot of those spots. Next time in the area, hit the Elkhorn Hot Springs, north of Polaris. We went up...

    1976 Ford F-250 Bug Out Camper/Utility Bed Rig

    "The truck was purchased by my father when he was in Highschool in 1982. He sold it to me in 2015 and it's been my work in progress ever since. The Camper was made by My grandfather and his brothers who founded Trail Haven Enterprises in Albion, IN during the camper crave of the 60's and 70's...

    Upgrades to my truck for hauling a camper.

    RegCab, are you running a swaybar? The big Hellwig made a large difference in stability and minimized the 'rocking ocean' effect. "SRW's and cabovers are sketchy in emergency collision avoidance situations." Yes, those of us with Truck campers always have to be in 'loaded truck mode...

    Ski Bum Truck V2.0, F450 Rough Road RV

    Great Trip Report Just read thru your trip report. I worked in Calgary in 1980, about 90 to 100+ hours a week for 10 weeks. I was stoked with the thought I would go spend time in the mountains, and was bummed when I found out I could hardly leave the jobsite (Deerfoot Trail concrete...

    Upgrades to my truck for hauling a camper.

    Built in trailer brakes I have a built in with my company truck, a 2013 F150 2wd. I agree with you on those on how smooth they are. I really like the brake controller, but the truck is a bit scary (it sways a bit over 60 mph) with a reasonable heavily loaded (5-7 k) trailer. The dash...

    Reality check for diesel-systemed truck camper

    I like that this thread has a number of differing opinions. Reading it has one swaying back and forth with the perspective of the poster's experiences. It is also an older thread, so I am not sure it if the Wallas diesel stove/heater option was available for overland campers when the OP was...

    Avion C-11 Resto-Mod

    Another ReStart Interesting thread. I wonder how many hands this old Avion has been in? Seems like many a restore has been started. Take it slow but very steady and you and it should both come out a winner and I bet your wife will come to appreciate it when everyone wants a tour and she...
