If you live in San Francisco and have always wanted a basic truck camper to take to festivals, outdoor events, or weekend getaways you need to talk to Chase Lawler.
Chase is a San Francisco-based handyman who specializes in building custom furniture, hanging drywall…and building a mean wooden truck camper.
I wanted a wooden camper, but couldn’t find anyone who made or sold them, so I made my own. They’re a great looking alternative to metal or fiberglass.
If you pay him $880, he’ll build and install one for your truck.
Take a look at Chase’s build below.
Chase Lawler’s custom wooden truck camper.
He’s fit large pieces of furniture and full-sized lumber in the back of the camper with the wooden shelter in place.
Chase says that he didn’t add any insulation because wood is a “natural insulator”.
Dual-access doors with plexiglass windows on the rear.
Each piece of the wooden camper is sealed with waterproofing polyurethane.
A full-sized mattress fits snugly inside the wheel wells.
There’s not much to this camper, but then again it’s only designed for short trips or weekend getaways. You could probably add some shelving of your own to hang clothes or some storage baskets. But some insulation would be nice too!
