Teacher Builds DIY, Off Road, Tiny Nissan Truck Camper

This DIY Off Road Tiny Nissan Truck Camper a guest story by Bartek Felski

It started with browsing in search of inspiration from enthusiasts gathered around Bajataco (Toyota Tacoma fans) who presented on its website an interesting solution based on the basic premise – the car block is unchanged. Contrary to serious limitations as the width of container in many cases managed to ingeniously solved living space. The problem was, however, one – I have not found similar conversions on a short four-door Nissan’s chest.

In “daily” – alcove with seats in the rear of the car. Under the seats there are lockers. Above the rear axle will place extra fuel tank (length 153cm) and cupboard over it with a folding table top (when unfolded will serve as a bed). Version of “Night” is a complex table and thus occasioned bed for 2 persons with dimensions 120cm x 172cm. At the top is unfolded will also be organized bed measuring 120cm x 172cm, partly overlapping the lower bed. The height difference between them is 55cm.

    Not for me, but incredibly creative!

    Nice design on the truckdesign. Not related, but i always love those pavement bricks. Paving the area doesn’t require much cement. The natural growth adds to the charm. If you ever need to renovate you can do so without heavy machinery. Perfect forwhen you find a tiny home spot to settle.

      second your comment re “pavers” Joey. Seems like every piece of acreage (discarded by developers) borders on wetlands and I had forgotten about “grasscrete”. Tx Bartek

    Want to bye a used tiny house in Orlando florida to put in my daughters back yard as a mother in law house. Please if you knows who is selling one let me know. Thank you.

    Like the shower unit. Wonder what the new unit weighted? Needs more windows.

    Not a bad idea, I would have done it on a full size pickup bed, 8 feet, and added a cab-over with a slant at the wind-shield the same as the wind-shields. Gives me some ideas on an old truck I have; 79 f-100 with an 8foot bed.

      He’s in Poland. Anywhere other than North America, that is considered a ‘full size’ pickup. 🙂

    Clever…fits more than one would think into the available space.

    I wonder what the piece of hole-y rusted metal on the back is for, though?

    • John July 12, 2015, 1:54 am

      Probably a ramp for the little boy. You can tell by the look in his face in the picture that he is saying… “Dad, how am I supposed to get up there?!?” 🙂

    • Ynot July 13, 2015, 9:00 pm

      Those are traction strips to put under the tires when you get stuck. Or to keep forgetting stuck. In one of the pictures he has two strapped on there.

    • Derek July 12, 2016, 1:32 pm

      They’re often called ‘sand ladders’.

  • B July 12, 2015, 1:08 am

    That’s a Nissan, rather than a Toyota

  • Thomas February 22, 2016, 2:27 pm

    the metal with holes in it is for traction. they build temporary landing
    strips for aircraft by connecting those together

    • Rev July 12, 2016, 4:28 pm

      The perforated steel planking (PSP, or Marston strips) are re-purposed by expedition rigs as ‘sand ladders’. Purpose-built sand ladders are also available in plastic, but without the enviable ‘rust factor’.

      I wonder if he hinged their mounts so they could double-duty as a counter or table…

  • rle1875 February 22, 2016, 4:25 pm

    B is right, that is a Nissan 4 door truck.
    I like the ingenuity of this builder. Keep it up!

  • Randy February 24, 2016, 11:27 pm

    Now days you can buy a overhead camper extended out the back and with slide outs on both sides. Lots of room and then slide off truck when your at camp if you want to
