So I initially reached out to Jay of Ovrlnd Campers in April of last year and put down a deposit for a camper for a 5’ bed Tacoma. I’ve started a build thread on Tacomaworld, but figured I’d start one hear to get more input / ideas on mods too.
Worked on the interior, covering the insulation with abs plastic sheets for protection/looks. On the upper portion of the camper I added adhesive velcro to the top of the lower portion of the camper to cover the insulation.
The side opening doors originally just folded flat, this was pretty high for me but doable. My wife though, she needed something lower so i took some inspiration from alu cab’s fold down side tables and made these out of 10 series extruded aluminum, and 1/4 hdpe sheets I had laying around. They work perfectly with my camp chef stove and I also added some attachments for he front runner cutlery set I got for Christmas.
I feel like I have a million small projects going at once. So I’ve also started the interior build. This will be out of 80/20 and other misc materials, basically a goose gear inspired build. One project I have completed is some front runner outfitters wolf pack brackets for the roof rack.
Between yesterday and today, I’ve mounted up some exterior lift struts to help with opening the top. The front was a proof of concept, and worked out pretty well. I am going to have to make custom rear mounts but that shouldn’t take long at all. I also found a place for my blue ridge overland gear bags. I was really wondering where to put them. I ordered 4” tall bags over Black Friday, I think one more 6” bag will fill up the panel nicely. I think I’m going to put electrical accessories / cables / headlamps / extra batteries in these.
