    Truck Utility SpaceKap to Camper Conversion

    I looked at the 2.7 and it wasnt up to par for actual hauling and pulling. I rented and tested it for a week and ended up with the 3.5 as it had more balls. I tow even heavier now and needed the higher payload capacity to stay within the laws limits, so I have the 6.7. Once you step up to...

    Plan to go down to the Galveston beach area this weekend to test out some off grid camping.

    Ill be honest and say I wasted some space but by the design of it, I think I captured enough useable room for my trips. Some of my items go into the support trailer when traveling.

    I don't really have any updates but I am looking forward to bring this setup out in the cold for deer hunting in a couple weeks. We have only spent one night inside it, and it stayed very warm with the heater. I will post some more pictures once we get over to Louisiana.

    Deff avoid going with the 2.7L as it wont have enough power to get you anywhere on the inclines. I would stick with a v8 or 3.5L ecoboost as the turbos give you better power. As mentioned if you keep the shelter light you shouldn't have issues.

    Honestly I haven't weighed it yet but while jacking it up I could tell my jacks were struggling a little more. I still think I'm sub 2k but my F250 doesn't notice the extra weight much. I also didn't skimp out on materials. If you stick to 1/8" paneling and light material, you can keep the...

    Well, A LOT has gotten done. Took it out to camp for a night with the kids and had a great time. Couple items to fix but so far so good! I need to finish some cushions and some trim pieces but overall I'm very happy with how it looks. I still need to put the vinyl on it for the name.

    Of course. I cannot wait for the day I get to mount it onto the truck.

    The Grand Terrainer: 2017+ Ford F-250 and SpaceKap Diablo 8'

    Yours looks great, nice and clean. You’re right that the area is tight in the top space. I made mine accommodate a queen up top with a section that slides into place. I can fit up there but it’s tight. Great spot for a couple kiddos though!

    Another Spacekap Build

    Looking like a great start! I’m getting close to the end of my build. The wood tongue and groove walls added a lot of weight to mine, but it’s sitting on a 12’ F250. Will give this a follow!

    One thing I will lack on the truck is a space for storage and a potential shower. Well, I bought a small trailer and converted it to have a heated shower via propane and solar power for the pump and plenty of storage. This will house our "stuff" and also a spare for the truck since I can't fit...

    I then continued with the paneling, 12v cooler sliding storage, trim and then the painting.
