    Flatbed conversion, camper design for light weight camper, heavy person.

    I could not agree more! When I outfitted the interior of my truck I made a dinette that could be converted to a bed. We converted it to a bed on our first trip to Baja in the truck in 1997 and it has stayed that way since. we just use trays on the bed for dining.

    Skills to build my own expedition vehicle??

    LMTV Conversion

    Hunt down a used U-Haul truck with a box the has close to the LxWxH and features you want, strip the box, then sell off the truck. I have heard of people that netted their box for just a couple hundred bucks, and one guy got a free box AND a couple of hundred bucks out of the deal! Good luck!
