What I like about it, is I could just stick my glasses, wristwatch, flashlight, etc on the wall and not worry about a too small nightstand. Great father/daughter project! Gotta love this guy, and his daughter too for not bailing on dads idea!

I hope he is using 100 MPH duct tape. I'll bet Red Green never thought of this one. I did see him make new seat covers for his van once.

I can honestly say I'd never seen anything like that! Very cool!


PVC pipe = cheap
Duct tape = cheap
Quality/fun time enjoyed by dad & daughter = priceless

I'll bet he is a fan of Red Green. In case you don't know it is a Canadian television comedy about some loonies at Possum Lodge. Red Green uses duct tape to fix or build everything.

Hi... I am the original poster of this thread.

I walked by their site this morning and snapped a few pics, but they were not yet up and about that I could see. Unless they went for a walk before the heat of the day set in. We had to leave and get on the road before I could meet them personally. They did garner a lot of interest in the campground, that is for sure.

I give them an AAA+++ for ingenuity and creativity!

Lord, grant me the senility to not recognize the people I don't like, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference

A lot of folks are finding all of the good in this whimsical camper. I applaud all of the ingenuity. One thing to consider for this type of RV (yes, it IS an RV)...

...is the safety. I would not consider using a Colman lantern or any type of heating device in this camper. Battery lighting and extra blankets only please.

Hope the sun doesn't beat down on it too much!
Even quality *DUCT* tape can get messy.

Note in the first pic, they show a roll of *DUCK* Tape = cheap-o stuff,
Doesn't qualify as - "Racer Tape" -or- "Hundred Mile-An-Hour Tape", LOL!
