Camper Shell Hoist

I just finished my camper shell hoist. I just wanted to post some pics to give you an idea of how I built mine.


First I put a Harbor Freight winch I got on sale just above my garage.
Click the image to open in full size.

Then I put 2pcs of unistrut under the top, and attach the winch to the top with some straps.
Click the image to open in full size.

Hoist it up and secure it with some chains.

Click the image to open in full size.

Not bad for a rookie. Plus, Its a one man operation. Hope this gives you an idea.

That's awesome man! What kind of winch is that, capacity? Also I was wondering if the winch were to ever fail will it automatically lock off to keep it form crashing down? I hope that never happens to you but it is something to think about. Looks really great

Its the Harbor Freight 440lbs. If I double the winch cable it will hold 880lbs. Right now as it is sitting the winch is not holding it up. The winch is only used to hoist it up then I used chains to secure it to the ceiling. Once that is done I release the tension on the winch. I guess it could fail while I lift it up.

Haha, The size of the garage was a huge buying point for me. I didnt really care about the rest of the house.
