Its taken over a year on and off but its finally, mostly, done. Started with a rotten popup camper I got for free. Its far from perfect but I think it’s pretty cool and will sure beat a tent particularly on those rainy nights.

“finally, mostly done”
Are we ever really “done”
Ok, enough of that, you have managed to turn a pop up into a heck of a nice looking camper. Congrats on the fortitude and expertise to get it this far. Great job !!

All the comforts of home, rolling down the highway, and not leaving the heat signature of a huge barnwagon.

Nice job.

awesome build !! and congrats on the DT3 – well deserved.
this project has been on my ToDo list for years. and is slowly sinking down
to the level of “it ain’t gonna happen”
looking forward to seeing some photos of your campouts !!
