    Camper Build for JDM 4x4 Toyota Dyna Truck

    That looks like a great truck. More on the camper build please. Also noticed right hand drive like here in Australia.

    Favorite glues for XPS foam.

    Teroson ms 939 is very good, 3 MPa strength, fast cure. If you're doing a lot invest in an air compressor fired sausage gun, worth the spend. https://www.henkel-adhesives.com/au/en/product/flexible-sealants/teroson_ms_939.html Sent from my SM-T860 using Tapatalk

    Designing a Subframe for a pickup / Ute Camper Build

    My subframe is 2 inch aluminium square tubing which I had welded together. Maybe 6 pieces crosswise and 2 lengthwise. Base is only 7 foot x 7 foot with overhang over cab. Whole thing sits on a VW Amarok dual cab flatbed. Sent from my SM-T825 using Tapatalk

    Designing a Subframe for a pickup / Ute Camper Build

    Sounds like a great project. Good luck! With moving the cab and camper together... that's a big box to stop flexing. I have a lot of movement between my cab and camper and mine is tiny. Maybe a flexible rubber pass through might be better? I've seen these on trucks. My top panels are simply...

    Exterior wiring through foam composite

    Hi all, Any ideas for wiring exterior items (eg lights) through foam composite panels? Are there long waterproof grommets? Something to stop the wires rubbing? Also if I fill with silicon how do I replace faulty parts when the wires run through the shell? Thanks for any ideas, Jim.

    Webasto Dual Top Reviews wanted

    Hi Darwin, There's some decent reviews on youtube that you can watch. They seem noisy and slow to me. Many times they get installed with their own small diesel tank which needs filling. My preference is a small 12v water heater and propane cooktop. Sent from my SM-T825 using Tapatalk

    Building custom camper jack legs

    Possibly. The point of failure will be at the top of the leg where it attaches to the vehicle so the top of he leg needs to be strong. That or the leg buckling. Sent from my SM-T825 using Tapatalk

    Very Early Stages Wiring Build Questions/Help

    One thing to keep in mind is that your starter battery charges differently to your house battery. Your alternator doesn't "fill" the start battery, it just tops up the little bit used to crank your engine, then runs the electrics. If your alternator is putting out 12.5 to 13.5v then this isn't...

    Very Early Stages Wiring Build Questions/Help

    Hi Eric look up DC to DC chargers. They detect when your engine is running and charge your secondary battery. A 2 way version will also allow your second battery to charge your starter battery in an emergency. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Building custom camper jack legs

    Just looked at my cordless drill specs, it claims 60Nm torque so should raise 400kg no problem. Sent from my SM-T825 using Tapatalk

    Building custom camper jack legs

    Hi Alloy, I hadn't heard of galling, thanks for the heads up. Would a thin sheet of hpde or uhmw between the sections help? I''m guessing in a 10 year life that they'll be raised/lowered an average 20 times per year so 200 cycles. This would also help resolve another issue of finding structural...

    Pop-Up Camper - Custom Build (scratch built) Oasis-Si

    Stunning!! I bought a rivnut tool for fastening into metal, works a treat, super stong. A local supplier has a range of different rivnuts for different depth of metal that it bites into. I think $100 for the tool and $14 for 100 rivnuts.

    Building custom camper jack legs

    Mine is the same weight, then load it up and it's potentially double, then lift one forward leg too much and it could be taking 80 percent of the weight, then have 2 people in the cabover bed... so I'm working on 2000lbs per leg for a 1200lb camper.

    Building custom camper jack legs

    Hi Kevin, That dimension rod would hold a lot of weight. Have you done any testing to see how hard it is to turn the screw and lift under weight load? Jim.

    Rough cost of composite panel / FRP build

    My panels for a similar size truck camper cost $8000aud. Total cost including hatches, windows, glue, trim, mistakes approx $16000aud. Fitted out with fridge etc should be about 22k. The little costs really add up. Painting tape, bolts, rivets, a tool you need, aluminum cutting blade. The...
