I like her bumps. But man, what a lot of effort to make that shed look ugly.

Ugh, well yea, (raising my hand)

KacksterK5 Pop up website is pop uppy.

I can see 13k in it real easy. Hell decent batteries, charging and solar setup will run you a grand. Also have to remember the Alaska tax, that everything is more expensive up there. That thing will probably outlast any slide in or shitbox camper

aczlan So he spent $13,000 on the truck and $13,000 on the camper. Not quite sure how you spend $13,000 diying a camper that small, but to each their own...

SSSRodeo He can buy a running 30' RV for $20 K and not even have to pick up a saw and hammer.
$26 for that old truck and camper? Alaska must have some GOOD Meth.

I'll stick to my Hot Rodded 37 footer Class A. IT's a one bedroom apartment on wheels.
And probably gets better milage than that olf Ford. I get 13.5 mpg if I keep my foot out of the turbo.

The kind that was built more for social media likes than cost effective living area. But maybe he's got that monetized, dunno.

The kind that offers you a roofie or a ether soaked rag choice before they knock you out.

Despite what the internet might have you believe, some overlanders would rather pass on pricey, ready-built kits in favor of something DIY-centric. This means forgoing rooftop tents and already-assembled bed racks for a more bespoke project—in the case of Alaska man Tim Johnston, that means a small-scale log cabin in the back of his 1996 Ford F-350. And while some hardcore enthusiasts spend $50,000 or more while modifying their rigs, Johnston's cost him just $26,000 with the truck included.
espite what the internet might have you believe, some overlanders would rather pass on pricey, ready-built kits in favor of something DIY-centric. This means forgoing rooftop tents and already-assembled bed racks for a more bespoke project—in the case of Alaska man Tim Johnston, that means a small-scale log cabin in the back of his 1996 Ford F-350. And while some hardcore enthusiasts spend $50,000 or more while modifying their rigs, Johnston's cost him just $26,000 with the truck included.
Now, he and the truck venture out on days-long trips across Alaska's frigid terrain. Luckily, there's a reliable 7.3-liter Power Stroke diesel under the hood that can take Johnston to and from campsites without issue...so long as it starts up in the morning. We imagine a block heater was number one on the modification list given the compression ignition lump's slow-cranking nature in the cold.

"My truck house is perfect, it has everything I need to stay out for as long as I need," Johnston added.

"I wasn’t in a rush with this project, I thought if I was going to do it again, I wanted to do it properly and make it exactly how I had pictured it in my head."

One thing's for sure: We couldn't have done it better ourselves. Just look at that front porch!
