I also went for the 2020 tradesman 2500 though mine is a diesel. I made the mistake of driving the Cummins and could not resist. I really like how you set your truck up to be an efficient full time overland rig. I plan on keeping mine fairly stock until the extended warranty I bought is used up. Dodge does make a few nice off road items that will be put on eventually. Such as the off road package and larger alternator. I plan on running the stock tires until they are fairly thin before upgrading to some nice all terrains.No updates so far since my truck should arrive in late March and my camper will be ready in January 2022. I have been spending much time researching exactly how I am going to lay out my interior and which components I will use. I have a National Luna 80L refrigerator and BattleBorn 100 Ah battery that I have used in another vehicle for the past few years that will go into this.
What are your plans?
The FWC is coming along nicely. I purchased a used shell model with a heater, 160 watts of solar, two AGM batteries, LED rear lights, and side awning. A friend of mine is building it out. His attention to detail and skill level is much better then mine. He is building a full cabinet with sink, two drawers, and storage on the driver side. My water source will be a LIFESAVER water filter 5 gal jug with pump and water spicket. No electric water pump. My plan is to keep things as flexible as possible. I’m using a 40 liter Engel fridge. This will stay on the floor under the cab window of the camper and double as a seat. I like the idea of keeping the fridge as mobil as possible . Having the ability to take it outside or inside will be nice. A small corner cabinet and a long skinny upper cabinet above the window will be built for the passenger side. I’m trying to keep as much room in the middle of the camper as possible. A lagun table will be attached to the passenger side that swivels. Here are a couple pics of the build thus far.
