Default Home away from home

So the next show I plan to attend is an overnight show. I decided that if I make it to the show, it will be there to camp all night. Figured I needed a camper for that, not a big fan of tents. So with a pile of scrap tubing in the corner, the trailing axle from my old car, and a little lumber, I got started on something.

I plan on tonight or tomorrow putting on a coat of clear, then I need to start on the top. It will have a snap down tonneau cover over screen for the top. And since the rat is on air, the camper will be too.













Whatcha all think?? The box is overall 5x9, big enough for a queen size air mattress.

Nice job! My only advice is to make windows on all 4 sides and allow them a way to open for cross ventilation. That'll make a great overnight hut...

Unfortunately windows on all sides is not possible. 3 is doable. One in door will be fixed. Other side is a slider. And of course the top rolls back...
