One of our customers, Ken, is an enthusiastic off-road traveler, with a preference for remote area travel. He’s built a pretty special Mazda BT-50 when he found that tenting in remote areas was challenging because of the terrain and the difficulty finding clear flat ground when you are really remote. He also didn’t want the hassle of having to tow a Camper Trailer, or to climb into a rooftop tent!
His solution? Build a custom Canopy and kit it out as a Camper!
Ken’s Camper is permanently attached, and divided into two sections. The front section houses the second spare wheel, water storage, auxiliary battery, fridge and cooking essentials plus much more and the rear larger section the sleeping area.
Looking at the vehicle closed up the canopy looks like many others. However, open the “gull wing” doors and two innerspring mattress beds pull out. Then the roof lifts up to reveal a roomy sleeping area.
While it looks like just another BT-50 with a canopy, this thing is anything but!
We love the setup Ken – and we’re sure people will have lots of questions!
