Hello, I’m build #1931. I leave from Maine on 9/6 (my 30th birthday) for a 9/9 install. I started to prep and plan my build. This won’t be an elaborate build, but I figured I’d document the process.
My goal is to keep things simple. I will be using my camper as a base camp for photography, surfing, and snowboarding trips. I will be using it in Maine’s 4 seasons and hope to get some winter camping out of it.
I owned a Tepui Low Pro 2 Roof Top Tent and loved it, but it had some major cons that I hope the GFC camper solves. I’ll touch back on this in a few weeks to compare.
Cali Raised LED Bed Channel Supports
I installed these to give the bed more strength and rigidity.
I wanted a flat surface that is lightweight and easily removable. I used 1/2” plywood and took measurements to match the bed layout. A circular saw and jigsaw were all I needed. I sealed it with a water-based polyurethane.
