Plus, they can be used as a general purpose ladder to reach things high up on the sides of the camper like the awning.

    Ozrockrat turned me on to these, and even though my camper now has a set of folding steps, I'm still going to get a set to use in rear or for general purpose.
    I ordered a set of scissor steps for a truck camper! Should be here monday! If those don't work out ill take a look at those, Thanks!

    Wow, nice rig! This is what I have been looking to build, a little bigger tho. I Have 2001 7.3 F-350 4x4 CC LB Dually I wish to replace box with flatbed and build up!

    You stated presvious owner built out of steel and wood, pressure that was used for framing? What about insulation and roof structure; any idea on how that was built?

    Just FYI, I did order the three step model, and they are very good quality. They are well built, with no bounce or side to side movement at all...solid as a rock and rated for 300 lbs!

    Thanks! Yes, framing was done with steel, then wood ribs on the walls and roof. All 4 sides are insulated pretty well. Ill ask the previous owner about getting some photos of the build.

    I like mine a lot! I just wish I ordered the 4 step and not 3 step.

    That's a perfect camper. Not too big or heavy. Minimalist, open interior. Lots of light. Basic accoutrements. I'm with you on some bigger, opening windows, at least over the sink like you mentioned - get a nice cross breeze.

    It'll be interesting to see how you tweak it but I'm sure its super nice to have such a pleasant space as it is.

    Thanks for sharing the nice pics.
