    Designing a Subframe for a pickup / Ute Camper Build

    OK. Would you suggest thinner walled tubing or small tubing or fewer crossmember? the floor will be a sandwich of .5" plywood- 1"XPS- .5" plywood adhered together with epoxy. I haven't found any good information on how wide of a gap is acceptable between supports when using this kind of...

    Designing a Subframe for a pickup / Ute Camper Build

    Ok. I managed to find a couple of smaller camper builds (not on unimogs or canters or other such trucks) and got some info on their subframes. They are WAY smaller then the subframes on the bigger trucks that I was previously trying to "scale down". Confirming the advice I was given here. Here's...

    Designing a Subframe for a pickup / Ute Camper Build

    The wheel will be on the outside of that beam. The space on the inside will be used for longer shocks and shock mounts

    Designing a Subframe for a pickup / Ute Camper Build

    This is what I have mocked up, but I'm starting to think it is overkill. What do you think? yellow = 2x3 inch red = 2x2 blue=1x2 green= 1.5 inch angle iron I'm thinking 1/8" wall on all tubing. The total floor plan will be 104x75 inches. The closest corner in the image is the passenger side...

    Designing a Subframe for a pickup / Ute Camper Build

    I'm currently only planning on using steel for the subframe. a layer of XPS foam and plywood will make up the floor of the camper on top of the subframe. Will this still cause "frost bridging" ? What would you recommend using to build the subframe?

    Thanks for the input. What vehicle is your camper on? What did you build your subframe out of?

    Designing a Subframe for a pickup / Ute Camper Build

    Hi all. I am planning to build a camper that will be permanently mounted on my Toyota T100 with a pass through similar in theory to the Maltec land cruiser campers. The camper will be attached to the truck cab and move together as one. My general plan is to build a subframe out of steel square...

    Central America Border Crossing Videos

    My wife and I spent nearly 1 year overloading through every country in Central America. We have been sharing our travels through videos on YouTube. Some of the episodes include border crossings. I try to present them in a helpful way for other travelers, so I thought I'd share what I have here...

    Hi Tim and/or Kelsey. I've watched a few of your vids and listened to the podcast you did on GHT. My understanding is that you are trying to make overland travel an indefinite lifestyle so you have no self imposed timeline, no destination, and no exact budgetary goals and that you traveled from...

    In our most recent video we extend our CA4 travel visas in Nicaragua and I cause a fender bender. Watch to see how it plays out. It's not the best adventure episode, but I thought my fellow travelers may find it interesting.

    truck topper as a place to camp?

    Wife and I lived in this thing for 2 years while traveling Central America. It started out as a normal fiberglass camper shell/topper. We cut the roof off and built the cabover for headroom and storage. The add-on is constructed of 3/8" plywood, epoxy resin and 6oz fiberglass cloth. The used...
