Question for the pop-up truck camper folks here: How does the pop-top handle in the cold-cold? Do you keep it down all the time or pop it up and blast the heater?

What kind of back rack do you have on your truck sanjuanworm and how much weight can it hold?

Here's a short video of the inside I took with my phone:

Ah k, I thought it was home built like mine will be. I counted 33 wafers and thought they might be your standard 3.5W per wafer but I guess not. Possibly due to older panel construction? Either way,...

Hey boltonoutlaw, what size of PV panel do you have on your roof, 180W? How's it handle your battery setup in the winter?
11-06-2012, 03:16 PM
Haha dang! I have 8' of room across in mine so I wont have to worry about space to store long skis.
I wish I could say that I will be out somewhere this winter, but I tore the ol' ACL this summer...

Haha sweeet stuff deft_funk! Lovin' the loft! If i had started with a truck I would have gone with a flat deck I think, but I'm building mine to suit a truck that I don't have just yet (I only have a...

Very nice NoPostholio! That's gonna be a sweet rig! I just ordered my wood burning stove from these guys: http://www.ammocanstove.com/ (got the B.O.V. model) and can't wait to install it! I'm going...

It's going on a 3/4 ton so luckily it can be a bit heavy ;) Current calculations bring its dry weight in at about 1500 lb. Fully loaded will be around 1800. It will have solar, R14 insulation, wood...

I've only got a few pics, but here they are. I will take some more tonight. The cold has set it and it will be difficult to do work but she'll get done ;) The second picture is of my skylight.

^^ Nice rig philth! What are you using for heat? My new camper build is a slide-in truck camper build and I'm going to be using wood heat.
10-24-2012, 11:15 AM
Aw yeah! Get em out, snow's starting to fly!
01-27-2012, 04:19 AM
Just make sure if your batteries are vented properly. While charging, lead-acid batteries generate very flammable gas that you don't want in your living area.
Sweeet! Love it, keep it comin'!
Fuck yeah! Love it!
12-30-2011, 07:29 PM
Damn. Vibes to the fam :(
Hell yeah, fresh cakes and fresh tracks! I'm in!
12-21-2011, 12:11 AM
When I was in Oz I was living in a HiAce pop-top for 6 months and loved it. Would need some serious mods to be anywhere useful over here though, insulation being the biggest one.
The good thing...

Fuggin' epic dude! Lovin' the setup!
12-05-2011, 01:23 PM
That Action Camper reminds me of some of the campers they have in Oz, with a bed deck up high to keep you away from the crocs.
11-18-2011, 12:58 AM
Love it! Are those wheel from a MkIV golf? Where are you located in the pic?
Cheers! Keep em comin'!

Diggin' the stealth! Getting pumped up for this season! Had to trip back to the flatlands for some fam time, but will be headin' out West right after Christmas to Whistle town for a bit. Prolly gonna...
11-14-2011, 01:38 PM
Haha that'd be awesome, but I think it's a porthole. What to do when money isn't a problem :rolleyes:
10-23-2011, 12:13 AM
PICS! Sounds like a sick rig!
Hell yeah! Team 'Toba!

JSki: Love it! I used to have a 4Runner and did something similar. I made a sort of reflectex caccoon in the back to trap heat.
Sometimes I miss that 4x4 though :D

That raises a question that is always at the back of the mind for many Van Dwellers/Dirtbags/Maggots; What to do when some unfriendly comes knocking?
There's a few responses to this, a couple of...

Can't wait! The stoke is slowly building!
09-04-2011, 08:21 PM
Haha sorry udp88 was going to post that, but I poach my internet so you beat me to it :D
There would be some dismantling involved with adding insulation, but that would only be if you needed it....
09-03-2011, 12:40 PM
udp88: The advantage with a slide-in is you can just take it out when you're not using it and just have a nice truck to do whatever in :D Slide-ins often have really good insulation (or are easy to...

Haha scouring CL and Kijiji works for me, ebay also has some rare finds.
08-30-2011, 01:10 PM
Beauty! Decommed Ambulances are the snaz!
08-29-2011, 05:24 PM
Haha no doubt! I steer clear of electric heat unless I'm plugged in.
When considering a solar system, you have to factor in how much sunlight you will be getting. In the mountains during winter...

Pontus - Lucky! That's a pretty sweet drop off :D
For my solar system I have a 400W PV panel array wired up with an MPPT charger, a 450 AH battery bank, and 2 pure sine inverters with 3500 watt...

Big time on the canine! Husky, Lab, or GSD!
A few things to keep in mind when doing a rig:
For me, my setup for each includes (or will include very soon):
08-28-2011, 10:03 PM
PUMPED! Can we get something going for the Great White North?
08-28-2011, 09:49 PM
Udp88 - I'm in an 80's campervan myself, and I know there's a few others in here doing the same. So far my mods have been very cost effective, so you can definitely do a full winter setup for under...

Man I've dreamed about that conversion for a while now, just wish my van wasn't so OLD. Oh well, still get's the job done. Here's a pic of my parking lot 'blind'.

Get work! Nice hike man!

Rocking an 84' Ford Econoline E-150 conversion van, pics soon to come. In the middle of major reno's on it, prepping for fulltiming starting this winter. Gonna be rigging up a solar system, propane...
