Post pics of your mods for camping

Hi all,

I've seen pics of truck mods where the bed has been built up with plywood for storage below and sleeping above (and a canopy on top). If you've got pics of your mod for camping/expedition, please post. I'm seriously considering doing one myself and would appreciate any suggestions.

Well I got a first generation and it looks like you do too... I dont have any pics but what I do is comfortable as hell... just drop the back seats down... fill up a nice air matress that fits back there... put some sheets... blankets all those goodies... and another thing that is nice for the side windows buy some things that you can pull over the windows so the sun doesnt shine in... I love it...

But from reading what you wrote it seems like you want to still have storage underneath... so this probably didn't help at all ha..

I can't remember who's website it is, but it belongs to a member on this board. He has tons of good camping stuff on his rig. I apologize in advance for not remember who you are to give you the credit. Camping mods

Has anyone seen the flip-pac tent? It looks versatile, lightweight and I've been trying to find out more about it.

The link IronMike gave was for Paul, who posts as transalper. Paul recently threw in the towel on camping with kids in the 4Runner. He now has a unique camping trailer. Here's transalper's review of his Kamparoo Cub

BajaTaco does have a great gallery page of the Flip Pac camper set up that troy65 asked about. This one belongs to VikingVince. It's a really great set up!

PP sells tents that connect right up to almost any SUV but they are pricey like in the $180 range.

Darren has a nice, simple set up for his 4Runner and you can see on his web page he spends a good bit of time camping in it. He also has info on window shades and ventilation -

If you want those roof tents for an suv check the magazine Australian 4WD. They have tonnes of those in the ad section at the back of the mag.

Word of warning from the link Bagger posted. Darren indicates he uses the Coleman BlackCat propane heater inside when the temps drop -- ***YEEEEEER GOOOOONNNNAAAA DIIIIIIIEEEEE!!!!***

Those things need a well-ventilated area for safe operation, otherwise you will eventually get a good case of carbon monoxide poisoning at best; permanent sleepy-time at worst. First hand experience with this situation, folks. Way scary.

I, too, sleep in the back of my 'Runner on solo trips which is about a dozen times a year. I use one of these:

http://www.furnitureontheweb.com/NoF.../023309nf.html

...as my mattress. Don't let the price tag fool you. The ones on that website are a rip off, and can be found at Costco for about $30. I like Darren's magnetic screen idea, though. Nice touch and something I'll likely try out.

Ed

My setup is very low tech, but it has worked out pretty darn well, and it's pretty flexible.

Cool flippac tent on VikingVince's truck! I've never seen anything like it. All seats in our SUV fold down to accomodate 2 people, but it's not very comfortable. Now that we have 4 in our family, we have a big dome tent. You're more than welcome to borrow it - it's very easy to set up (only plans so far are to use it on the weekend of July 23rd). It's about the size of an infant travel day bed/playpen (when packed up), except a little longer.

Thanks for the "Echo" tip. I had forgotten all about the Echo, and was looking at Tercels & Matrixes.

Thanks for the offer. I've just installed the last of three 5/8" plywood boards for the truck and it will work just fine. I'll have pics up soon. It's not an original idea and has been posted by someone on this board. Works great and only cost about $50.

Troy
