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

    After thinking about it for 2 years, the fabric is here. Window covers, rear awning and camper pop-up sides. Looks great, really nice job. I have all the aluminum and screws in hand to install it now too so all that is needed is... well, the doing. Should be back at it this week, hand is 'good...

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

    Just got the call... Fabric is done, and being dropped off tomorrow. Sadly, I have been hard down with this stupid finger surgery for the past 2 weeks, so no work has been done. Camper is still in pieces... ugh. I am probably 4 days worth of work away from installing the fabric. But that 4 days...

    Total Composites full introduction!

    Man... that sucks Victorian. I am sorry to hear that the haters and the trolls are making this place somewhere that you cannot be yourself. I know you are a helpful and giving person, and one of the nicer people I have met in the past few years. If there is one thing that I have found out in the...

    Home Depot Flatbed Camper Build...

    Wow, this build is epic. I am really liking the way this is turning out and the overall shape and aesthetic is really functional and rugged looking. Well done!

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

    Did some more work a couple of days before my hand surgery. After cutting off the wood sides, I needed to re-structure the sides. I ripped up some nice solid Douglas Fir and filled in the gaps where the insulation was now exposed. I used a router to trim the foam out and set the wood in 3/4 x...

    Thanks ITTOG. Went well, hurts like heck! I am pretty sure I will be out of commission for at least a week. And the fabric should be ready Monday... FML

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

    I forgot to add pics of the upholstery. This is 4" HD foam with Marine Grade fabric. I like the colour and how it is sort of neutral enough to blend in... hard to see in this light however, it was dark and these are taken under LED roof lights with the lid closed. heh This is with the cushions...

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

    So... some progress, finally. Laine, the marine upholstery guy stopped by on Friday to do some final measurements and planning for the canvas, and he dropped off the finished cushions and some additional fabric to wrap a few interior trim pieces. The fabric was stretched around the camper and we...

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

    Long time no update? I am working on the camper again now that the weather is not so cold, and I am getting ready to finally finish this thing. Been way too long... mind you I took the better part of a year off so, that hit the productivity pretty hard. Anyhow I am finishing up the electrical...

    Total Composites Slide In Camper Kits

    Looks great, and fits great in my 2014 4th Gen Ram 1500. Stock suspension, and it dropped 1" or less when loaded... impressive! I have Timbren bum stops, and they were still 1" away from the axle pads... impressively light for the size of this camper. The want is very high for one of these kits...

    Total Composites Slide In Camper Kits

    This... I am VERY interested in seeing. In person. Soon. Again. :p BTW, I got to see the first camper above in person last week. I am lucky to not only be local to Total Composites, but also to be friends with the owner. My unbiased-ish opinion is that these are going to be a winner. The...

    Any experience with Papago Customs?

    Never heard of them... but they are fairly well represented on Social Media (FB, Instagram, LinkedIn others) and there are a decent amount of pictures and drawings. I like that they seem to utilize simple clean lines and nice useful designs, at least from what you can see online. If they are...
