    Well I have one of the first Ovrlnd Campers coming in a couple of weeks, and figured I would go ahead and start a build thread.

    I put down my deposit back in June, and started working out the details of the camper. Each Ovrlnd Camper is custom built to the owners desire. I got to choose my fabric from a multitude of colors. I went with tan, as it’ll hide the dirt pretty well. The other things I added are two fold down side table / doors, jerry can mount, propane tank mount, awning mounts, roof tracks, solar wiring access port (for future panels),and full turn signal/brake lights.

    Here is the start of the lower frame

    Subbed. Following your build vicariously while I wait for mine to start (Nissan Frontier). Did you order the optional clear vinyl for the windows?

    I did go with the vinyl third window. So from outside to last it’s screen/vinyl/canvas.

    Getting closer to being done, side doors installers. Just have to add the stay cables, so they are truly door tables.
