bill van snorkle Posted July 26, 2007 Share Posted July 26, 2007 I am trying to think of some way to make my truck a little more versatile ,so that maybe 3 people could sleep in it on weekends away in rough country without the need to necessarily pitch a tent outside on the ground.Has anyone done a fliptop camper conversion to a short wheelbase roof similar to the 109 Doormobiles ? To enable my truck to fit in underground car parks I am in the process of sectioning and lowering my roof lid 2 1/2'', and before I rivet the 1.5 metre long x 1.35 metre wide flat top panel on I thought I would explore the possibility of strengthening it and fitting hinges at its forward end so that it can be swung up and over and hang over the bonnet area to be supported by a couple of adjustable props off the bullbar. This should give a flat platforn for a couple of inflatable matresses. Some form of easily erected tent type structure would need to be made to cover the bed and the big hole in the roof once the platform is swung forward. A single bed should be easy enough to erect lower down at bulkhead level. What solutions have others come up with for living in a Short Wheelbase? Bill.
