I went to Moab and towed the camper trailer. 289mi at 55mph-60mph. She rode great! Blew a tire though... The 35" bfgs were kinda old anyhow... But got a new tire and rim from Les Schwab and finished the trip! I'm going to keep the Alaskan on the Trailer bed. Very happy with the set up! I also filled the 1 1/2" gap between the bed rails and camper with treated 3x 2x4x8 boards. I used a table saw to turn them into 2x3x8 and secured them with bolts. Filling the gap really helped a lot with the sway and body flex of the camper.

Mounting was easy. I bought 8 eye bolts with locking nuts and 1"-3" washers and drilled on the inside of the bed and camper. Then used chain with adjustable nuts to tighten. I'll get pics here soon:-)

Cool! I always like to see how guys build a nice cozy place to rest while wheeling. This kinda looks like it was meant to be, especially behind your blazer.

I love my camper build so much! I thought it was going to be a bad idea... But turns out it performs amazing well off road. I'm surprised no one has recently built such an awesome idea! While I was up in the mountains I kept getting compliments on both the blaza and camper. I recommend this build idea to everyone!

The blazer will be out of the shop soon. I want to put an A/C unit on the top of the camper. Any ideas? I also want to take out the fridge and turn that space into a shelving closet for more cargo. A solar panel system would be bad azz! I need to do some electrical work. Add a few batteries and run wires/relocate so I can charge the batteries when hooked up to truck or blazer. Also got to wire up the running lights. I would also like to add a forced air heater. The rad heater can be dangerous.

Not many have done this build, less then 5 people world wide... But seriously, I love it!

I like the fiberglass Alaskan camper design a little bit more. They are super hard to find. More aerodynamic and the rear door just looks cooler and more rounded. Maybe one of these days I'll find one for sale in my area.
