    I so don’t get this from the pix? Terrible.

      Vehicle to camper conversion… People have done cars, station wagons, vans, etc. One person even converted their Prius…

      They’re typically a Hodgepodge of improvisation and are generally intended as self built RV’s but some people actually live in them… Along with similar small examples like teardrop trailers, truck bed campers, etc.

      It’s not easy to take interior photos because free space is almost non-existent with every square inch being used for something… Bed, storage, supplies, etc. but they often have the basics for everything.

    Nice? Goodness it is one of the weirdest, ugliest conversions I think I’ve ever seen.

    I have to say there is something compelling about this in an oddball way. It is away from the norm and shows a lot of character.
    I am not sure about the actual driving dynamics of the weight distribution though and wonder if the suspension has been upgraded to accommodate that kind of additional weight.
    You can see a lot of work has gone into this though and I applaud the effort, enjoy the fruits of your labor!
