The camper build begins but not what you thought


I have started my build and I am documenting in the Toyota forum.

After all my planning and tossing the decision around I opted on the Single Cab Landcruiser 79 series ute.

I may move up to something bigger later but for now the Landcruiser fits my needs perfectly.

I have begun fabrication and the sub-frame is almost complete, the next stage is a light weight camper this space.!!!!


The Camper project is gathering pace with materials arriving.

I received the sandwich panels last week and now I am starting to assemble the living module.

I spent several hours stating to prepare the joints and getting the panels ready and doing a trial fit for the cabin panels.

That is just awesome! I would love to build one similar for the back of my Tacoma. How hard was it to find the panels? Cheers

I hope everyone had a great Christmas.

I had a very productive 3 days installing all of the main electrical items in the camper and cabling for other items yet to be installed.

I am very satisfied with the progress that is being done, I am well ahead of schedule.
