the owner designed and built it himself

On the specialized site “Expedition Portal” there was an article about a stylish camper, built on the basis of the off-road pickup Ford F-550. Its creator, a man named Scott, spoke about the modification.

According to him, he and his wife love to travel, while choosing difficult and remote routes. Consequently, they needed a fairly compact mobile home, since it is problematic to conquer off-road on large campervans.

As a result, the choice fell on the aforementioned F-550 of the 2016 model year, equipped with a 6.8-liter V10 engine and all-wheel drive. At the same time, the living module for the car was designed in SolidWorks CAD software and made of composite material. It is characterized by a minimalistic design, although inside there is everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Interestingly, the roof of the module can be lowered, due to which the camper remains quite compact, and its height does not exceed three meters. If the roof is raised, then the height of the living compartment from floor to ceiling reaches about two meters, which means that you can move around the cabin in full growth.

In the front of the camper (above the pickup cab), a sleeping place is organized, while the walls here are not deaf, but glass, which allows you to admire the rising sun in the morning. In addition, there is a small kitchenette inside with a sink and electric hob, a U-shaped sofa and numerous niches and storage boxes.

All this is placed very compactly, but the module itself seems to be quite airy and spacious. Inside there is an air conditioner that maintains the optimum temperature both in hot and cold weather. Like most on-board electronics, it receives the energy it needs for its operation from solar panels, although if necessary, the standard pickup engine can also be used as a generator.

The camper is also equipped with a 380 liter clean water tank and a 150 liter dirty water tank. The fuel tank is already 260 liters. All this contributes to high autonomy, allowing you to go on multi-day trips.

Interestingly, the man spent almost five years building such a camper. At the moment, the compact mobile home is up for sale, and they are asking for a solid $ 225,000 (17.6 million rubles at the current exchange rate).
