Guide Intro

DIY Truck Camper v.00001The Story of how we ended up building a too-long camper on a just-right 2006 Tundra Double Cab truck could fill volumes.  We’ve stood in Sprinters and Promasters, we were pre-approved for a new truck camper, and we’ve frequently thought about giving up on the entire dream.  During that time we read hundreds of sites, forum posts, watched hundreds of youtube videos, all just to get a complete picture of what our options were and what we wanted to do.

We hope this guide will be helpful to folks doing DIY truck campers as well as van conversions, cargo trailers, etc.  So even though we have high hopes for the affiliate links in these articles, we’re genuinely trying to provide value to other DIY Class-D RV enthusiasts out there and hope you won’t find them too tacky.

The first step is the hardest – picking your base vehicle
