At about the same time that I finished building the bed in my Tahoe (more on that over here), the world was plunged into a pandemic that resulted in almost everything shutting down and everyone staying home. As some one with an autoimmune disease, I was happy to stay at home and do my part to stop the spread of the Coronavirus. Unfortunately, this meant I had to scrap all the spring camping trips I had been planning to take but that doesn't mean I didn't get some use out of my rig!
Would you just look at her in all of her glory? The first road trip has me feeling like a proud parent. Given that the weather is still a bit chilly around here, I didn't want to go anywhere too crazy but I still wanted a test run of my new setup. Luckily I only live a few hours from really cool desert areas.
My partner and I do a lot of camping and we tend to go to some pretty remote areas. I've always liked the idea of a camper van but most vans just don't have the clearance or the off-road capabilities that I felt we needed. Then one night, I was scrolling through used cars and had the idea to build a dedicated camping vehicle with 4x4.
