I downloaded the photos into PowerPoint where I could enlarge the images to see more detail, and there are definitely some "rough edges and blemishes" (angle iron with exposed bolt threads and nuts, etc.) that I don't think a manufacturer trying to attract customers would have let out their shop door (or maybe that's why there is no manufacturer's name plate on it!). So, I'm still guessing it's a pretty cool DIY project. On another note, the image enlargements also let you see a bit better through the door window some details inside - including what appears to be sink cabinetry just inside the door to the left. A really curious person with the right (or wrong) connections in British Columbia could probably track down the owner from the truck's license plate (then have fun trying to explain to the owner how they tracked them down!).

OK folks, it's been 2 years but the owners of this camper were back in town and I chased them down and got the "tour" . They are from Victoria BC. He built this 10 years ago to fit his '02 Dakota truck. He did say he was a bit concerned of finding a replacement truck when the time came. It does not have a gel coat finish it's painted. They have a fresh water tank for the sink, LP wall heater and small refer, solar on the roof, upper storage cabinets along both sides and a clothes closet and over the cab bed. Pretty sweet build....wished I'd had a camera with me. I did give them my email and his wife said she would send me pics of the build. Should be interesting as he did it free hand for the most part. If they send any I'll post them. A bit funny, he told me someone stopped him and said he'd seen one just like it before, someone here said the same thing....maybe that was the same person?

What was the interior headroom like? It looks pretty high but that could be an illusion from the rocket booster design style.

Good question Steve, I didn't think of adding that. Would guess it to be at least 6' from the head clearance I had in it.
