NOTES FROM MOBILE RIK

"I first came up with the idea to build my own truck camper in March 2013. I spent a couple of months just browsing ideas and collecting them on my home site MobileRik.com.

"Then once I committed to the idea of a custom truck camper for my Tacoma Prerunner -- with fuel efficient pop up design, no slide in -- I spent a month studying plans and blog articles and making a lot of little sketches.

"Once I nailed down the idea in my head, I made a 3D model in Sketchup and played with it over just a week to come up with a parts list.

I built the first version of my simple DIY truck camper at the end of July 2013. Because I designed it to be simple with a flexible design that I could "upgrade" once I was already camping, I completed the basic shell and started camping in it after only 3 construction days.

Total cost for the first version was less than $250 at retail prices. It's also unexpectedly lightweight -- around 500 lbs, which is lighter than most commercial campers." -Mobile Rik

MOBILE RIK
Full Time Camper, Wilderness Junkie
Outdoors-Enthusiast and 24-7-365 Boondocking Sustainability Experimenter, "Mobile Rik" built his own DIY Truck Camper, notably in only 3 days for under $250. He now lives permanently off the grid, traveling between free National Forest and BLM campgrounds, powered by his homemade DIY solar panels, and cooking on his little tin-can wood-gasifying cook stove. When not hiking desert canyons looking for rocks and ruins he'll probably be found in a random cafe writing books, making videos or new websites, or responding to some ridiculous technical emergency (totally wishing he was out camping!)
