I have a platform built into the back of my 01 Tacoma. It's just high enough for my cooler, a few action packers and a couple of haulbags to fit underneath, and roomy* enough for me to sleep on top of all the gear. Ventilation can be a problem so I have a battery operated fan that will move the air around enough so that the condensation doesn't get out of control. *When compared to submarine bunks Definitely a few things I would improve (and will do with the next one, whenever this Tacoma dies, which will probably be another 100k, since I only have 200k on it now): 1. Carpet headliner in topper to reduce condensation problems and make it warmer in winter 2. Slightly taller cap (mid-height, slightly taller than cab) for more headroom/gear room 3. This platform system: www.pigseye.com/jackson/bed.htm 4. "Windoors" on the topper for better access to my crap and more ventilation




I've slept in that dirtbagmobile. In fact, it's the model for the one I'm building. I'm definitely incorporating that new platform system.

Where are you finding cushions like that? Or are you making them?

1960 VW bus was home off and on and it served me well. Triple curtains with the third layer being black out grade work well before heat guns...

He took the whipper while trying to place his #1 Stopper.  So sad.

'93 Mazda MX6 - Its up to 330,000+ miles now. No ground clearance, but it can still hold plenty of stuff for 1-2 people and gets 34 MPG+ on road trips!
Want to get a rig setup, but hard to give up the gas mileage for those long drives to the mountains...

This is my 1997 Ram 2500 Conversion Van. I bought it a couple years ago when it had 43k miles, and I paid $2k for it. I originally bought it to haul a dirt bike, but then once I got rid of the bike I decided to turn it into a camper for my wife and I. I built a full size queen bed in the back, with about 14" of clearance underneath for tons of storage. The foot of the bed (closest to the front, near the side doors) folds up to become a bench/seating area in case you need more room to change or if the weather is poor and you need to eat inside.

The 14mpg highway is kinda shitty, but the convenience is pretty neat. We recently used it to tow all of our stuff in a uHaul trailer and move from the Bay Area to Fort Collins, and I couldn't have imagined a more comfortable and convenient vehicle to do it in. =)
