Aside

A closer look at construction: #2

This camper is pretty impressive and definitely warranted a closer look.

It was one of the first Ute campers I had come across and wondered whether it would be a good base on which to design my custom camper. I took to Sketchup (3d design software) and came up with some very basic/rough ideas (note the cantilever bed for the Dual Cabs).

This camper is one of the lightest ute campers at around 370kg. Somehow they’ve managed to keep the weight way down but still using the usual materials (aluminium, fibreglass, wood, etc).

The construction is very similar to the Wedgetail, aluminium frame, fibreglass lid/bed, etc, etc.

I recently made a game-changing discovery about how these are built and will write up a post about this soon!
