    Default Basil Lynch's 2000 F250 Expedition camper build

    Hey All!

    As many of you know the FJ is up for sale, (Linked Here: FJ SALE) Well I thought id share my new build! Last week I picked up my new truck in Santa Cruz!

    The truck is a 2000 F250 4x4 7.3l Diesel, access cab short bed. The camper was custom built by the previous owner, he is a carpenter by trade and did an amazing job on it!

    Right now the truck is pretty much stock, other than a small leveling kit and air bags. But thats about to change, ive got a bunch of goodies on the way and am super stoked to start this build!

    I'll try and keep up with this thread, but I will be posting daily over on my instagram HERE!

    Perfect size for one person. Question: How are you able to reach and set up the ARB awning when it's mounted that high up?

    Great looking rig! Is that on demand hot water mounted to the upper left on the back? Any issues with it living outside?

    Not sure how long just the box is, but the truck is 20.5 feet long, short enough to fit in every national park/state park campground!

    It is! and currently its a pain to open, i'm going to be switching it out for an electric RV awning. They aren't cheap, but if its a pain to open i'll never use it.

    Yes! I've only had this truck for about a week now. But the previous owner drove it on a 4 month trip up to Alaska and back and he had no issues!

    Here are some interior photos!

    I'm looking to switch out the window that's over the kitchen area, I want to get one that's larger and also fully opens up. Anyone have suggestions on where I should start my search?
