Baja Style Truck Camper Build

#20
Thanks! I will get some pictures over this weekend and get them posted. Interior not finished currently...my kid's sports had taken over but will be ending for the season by mid-May. I have the wiring (minimal) done inside and have LED lights taped to the ceiling to make sure of placement and the switches are just hanging by wire at the moment. Will get back with ya after the weekend.

Took a quick ride up Nate Harrison Grade last Sunday to get a couple pics not in my driveway. Nice easy ride with great views. Camper handled well with no weird creeks or groans. I also started laying in the insulation I got. Both sides are complete with only the top and doors to do...then paneling goes in. Just barely noticeable are the back up/utility lights above the doors. I didn't want big lights hanging down. They are COB LED lights mounted to custom brackets. I also have the same lights inside. The rear lights are switched via engaging reverse on the truck and also via a switch in the camper...with diode in place.

I also purchased RV style door catches to install. The rubber catches I currently have work, but only if there is no wind! Those big doors are like sails.

Years ago during the week,my wife and I bombed up the grade and nearly got wiped out twice by speeding residents of the reservation.
I used bungies for our Callen in the wind.
Looking good indeed!

I got one quick photo last night of the partially completed interior. Passenger side panel is up and the window is framed. Drive side panel is up but window is not framed yet. Still have the ceiling and cabover portion to complete then trim work, etc. Currently the panels are white vinyl MDF but I may see how cherry stained birch would look. Any thoughts for you all? It's really white in there! LOL. Maybe after adding window coverings it will break it up enough.
