    Convert a flatbed car hauler to enclosed camper?

    Be careful with cargo trailers. Their construction is just as crappy as RV's. This pic is of the wall and you can see there is a large gap. Not too bad given there is a steel beem behind it but bad nonetheless. The butyl tape along the roof did not prevent leaks. This is the worst one. It...

    Custom Truck camper build

    A lot of missing info so a bit difficult to help but your spacing should be dependent on what size of wood/steel you use. Also, for the floor, what are you putting down between the joists. Will that material be hard and prevent deflection of your floor or will it be soft and not prevent...

    Unique Expedition Truck

    Okay, never mind. I lost all interest. That explains the high price.

    Unique Expedition Truck

    Surprisingly I kind of like the look of the OSB. Hopefully they put a coating over it. If I was in retirement, I might have to check this one out. I like the build.

    LED strip lights flickering when switch is off

    It is most likely just an electromagnetic field produced from the fan wires. If you want to stop it, move the wires further apart or get more shielding. The other possibility is that they are on the same circuit. I know you said they are not but if moving the wires further apart then the issue...

    How would you outfit this custom LJ?

    What is the white frame made out of? Looks a little like painted wood but I figure fiberglass for you? If it is fiberglass, what is the inside lip made of?

    ITTOG's Truck Camper Build (was 6' x 12' Trailer Conversion)

    The result after two layers have been applied. If you noticed the black pigment in the supplies picture you can see here I forgot to use it. Now I have to decide if I want to paint the fiberglass or add another layer of epoxy using the pigment. Anyone have any experience you can share that would...

    My Journey

    Great shots of the wheat fields with the dogs. I loved them. I don't believe I have ever seen such deep green wheat like that.

    ITTOG's Truck Camper Build (was 6' x 12' Trailer Conversion)

    Well, its done and turned out good enough to meet my requirements of water proof and strength to prevent damage to foam. But there are some issues. I will address all of it in a post with pics. This is after cleanup.

    ITTOG's Truck Camper Build (was 6' x 12' Trailer Conversion)

    Yeah I have read it. Not sure I remember everything. I plan to thicken the epoxy like recommended but not sure how it will work so I wanted another option. Sent from my Pixel 6 Pro using Tapatalk

    ITTOG's Truck Camper Build (was 6' x 12' Trailer Conversion)

    I hope to fiberglass the bottom half of the camper this weekend. Given I have to do horizontal and vertical spots at once I plan to wrap some tubing in saran wrap to help keep the epoxied glass in place. I hope it works.

    My Journey

    I went through pain management shots first. That may have been because of my back issues and I am always getting shots? The shots were no help and then I did PT. After the PT, surgery. Have you had an MRI? That is what finally revealed surgery was required. Given your mountain hiking I would be...

    ITTOG's Truck Camper Build (was 6' x 12' Trailer Conversion)

    Not yet. I am almost 10 weeks post-surgery. Next big milestone is 12 weeks, which is when I should have full range of motion and get to begin doing things like very short and slow running, biking, etc. Full recovery is six months. Things are going so well though that I am going to have surgery...

    1986 GMC S-15

    Funny you commented about the shock leak and not how bad it was bent. Then bend would have been my largest concern. :)

    My Journey

    I have multiple problems with my hips. What I was experiencing was burning that turns into pain on the outside of the hip. As it became worse, I would sometimes get groin pain and numbness in my feet. Laying down was the only way to mitigate the pain so every day I would wake up feeling good but...
