I like how it's a triple slide you can sleep in with the slides in. . . but can you grab a beer from the fridge and take a dump in the bathroom with those slides in?

That cabover is so tall you could probably have a Porto potty and fridge up there. Hey, it's all about what's important to the individual... [emoticon]

I liked it, kinda "Host" like but I have seen a few of their smaller campers and they look nice as well. Hope the wife doesn't get a glimpse of it or I will be selling my truck for a F450 or F550.

Be cool if it had some sort of quick release, so you could keep a truck bed and use it as a pickup when not needing the truck camper.

The other question is how is it attached to the frame. One of the challenges with overlanding vehicles is in rough conditions, the frame itself will bend and twist. If locked solidly to the frame, it can tear the box apart.

Never saw a Class C with TC jacks. It appears to be a TC built for a flat bed pickup.

Very nice but since you cannot remove TC from truck might as well go with a class C.

Nice looking camper. Appears the “flatbed” is part of the camper? Otherwise those wheel wells don’t look like there’s enough room in them unless the fender well is built up into what looks like the camper portion.
Other observations. Looks heavy. Not that other big campers aren’t, but first blush after reading about his campers is they may be the heaviest TCs out there.
Hope he’s very successful, as it appears he’s very skilled.
But a camper like this is basically for the little class c customer who wants 4wd and room for the family to ride in the cab, not the “typical” TC owner.
Now if the “bed” stays on the truck, it’s a bit more useful but still very limited to those who mostly camp and only use the truck without the camper infrequently.

Wood framed, wood paneling, more wood in the cabinets than standard campers. And typical roof construction. This part is where you lose me. He gets an A+ for interior design. But that’s where the innovation ends. A camper designed and built by a carpenter is a step backwards in camper technology.

Years ago there was a guy here in the forum that had a 3 axle toy hauler loaded with machines and tow it with a Ram diesel.

Then one day he sold it and bout a hybrid TT, the kind that has a platform that you can put 2 ATVs on and a "tent" folds out when you unload the ATVs.

He said that was the best thing he ever did because hauling 1/4 the trailer made the travel time soo much more enjoyable.

A Class C doesn't have 4 low.
