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.

A Teacher’s Creative Journey: Designing and Building an Off-Road Nissan Truck Camper
In the world of DIY camper conversions, there’s one story that stands out—an inspiring journey of a teacher who ventured beyond the classroom to design and build a remarkable off-road Nissan truck camper. Join us as we follow the teacher’s creative process, from the initial design concepts to the hands-on construction of this unique and adventurous project.
Designing the Dream:
Every great adventure starts with a vision, and for this teacher, the dream was to create a versatile and off-road-ready camper from a Nissan truck. The initial design phase was filled with brainstorming sessions, sketches, and careful consideration of space utilization. The goal was to keep the car’s block unchanged while ingeniously maximizing the living space.
The layout included an “alcove” with seats in the rear of the car, lockers beneath the seats, an extra fuel tank above the rear axle, and a cupboard with a folding table top that would double as a bed. For nighttime accommodations, a complex table setup would convert into a cozy bed for two, and an additional bed would unfold above it. The height difference between the two beds was carefully planned to ensure comfort and functionality.
Turning Inspiration into Innovation:
The teacher drew inspiration from the community of Bajataco (Toyota Tacoma enthusiasts), who had presented a similar concept on their website. However, they faced a challenge as they couldn’t find similar conversions for a short four-door Nissan truck. Undeterred, they set out to innovate and create something truly unique.
Building the Camper:
With the design in hand, the teacher embarked on the hands-on phase of the project.
This involved sourcing materials, tools, and the skilled craftsmanship needed to bring their vision to life.
The construction process was a labor of love, marked by countless hours of dedication and creativity.
The camper’s transformation included careful construction of the seating area, installation of lockers, and the integration of the extra fuel tank and cupboard.
The folding table top was crafted to perfection, ensuring it could serve both as a surface for daily use and as part of the sleeping arrangement.
The end result was a camper that seamlessly combined functionality and comfort.
Hitting the Open Road:
Once the camper was completed, it was time to hit the open road and put their creation to the test.
The teacher’s off-road Nissan truck camper was now ready for adventure, offering the freedom to explore new horizons, camp in remote locations, and experience the beauty of the great outdoors.
The journey of this teacher from designing a dream to building an off-road Nissan truck camper exemplifies the spirit of adventure, innovation, and the pursuit of creative passions.
It’s a reminder that with dedication and ingenuity, anyone can turn their vision into reality.
This DIY project is a testament to the teacher’s determination to break free from the ordinary and embark on a journey filled with excitement and exploration.
