Chay and his brother Colby wanted a truck camper they could use to go camping, and it had three requirements: It had to cost under $1K, it had to sleep both of them in bunks, and it needed to come *off* the truck.

With a lot of hard work and ingenuity — and only 10 days! — they made it happen. Their dad popped in to help them with the drywall and finishing touches on the final day of the project and they managed to reach their deadline and stay under budget. The video below is inspirational!

Kelsey and Shane are one awesome couple! On a whim, they decided to build a truck bed camper for their truck and go travel the country. Originally they wanted to hit all 50 states in a year and then go back to “normal life,” but now they’ve been on the road in their DIY rig for 2.5 years!

They built their camper with almost zero planning and very little money! All in all, they only spent $4k and used all kinds of reclaimed materials to make it home sweet home. While they don’t necessarily recommend their design or approach to others, they do think everyone should be living a life they love! What do you think?

Channing is such an inspiration! Not only is she an elite athlete as Team USA Paralympian Kayaker, she doesn’t let anything stand in her way. She was tired of plane trips and missing out on the places she traveled with her team, so she decided to build out her own wheelchair-friendly truck camper, so she could travel on her own time, save money, and see what she wanted to see!

Her truck has hand controls, she rigged up a bathroom system that works for her, and she carries her motorized off-roading trike on a pull-away bar on the back of the rig. Inside she has a couch pad, a “loft” bedroom, and all she needs to make food. What an awesome woman!
