sweet truck build (1 Viewer)

I found this the other day, figured you guys might dig it

last time i took a trip i was in a station wagon, and while i highly recommend that, i think a truck might afford me a little more privacy and stealth.

I'm going to get something like a 90's s10 or mazda or maybe a volkswagen and outfit it with something like this.

anyone else have cool truck stuff?
how about home-built campers?

Enjoyed exploring this article. There's a lot of great ideas to pull this off in a truck, which I haven't really looked into, though I would definitely consider it more in the future after reading this for solo travel. Right now I have my hands full with a conversion van, planning out the bed in the back because the bench isn't big enough for two. My last conversion was a bit too rusty to trust and had a handful of suspension problems so I sold it to my friend who is a bit more mechanically inclined than I am before upgrading. I'd like to go solar but I just don't have cash for that now unfortunately, most of my equipment is propane or 12v.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
