If you’ve always wanted a camper but have never been able to afford one, then here’s an idea that may inspire you. Have you ever thought of building one yourself? Well that’s exactly what Redditor tylerthompson21 did. He turned an old truck into an adventure machine! With a month of hard work, dedication and several different materials, he built his very own DIY adventure truck. This awesome truck has everything you could possibly need for a fun road trip by yourself or with a friend. There’s a huge pull out drawer for storing all of your belongings, which also doubles up as a table! Above the drawer there is a flat surface which holds a mattress so you can catch your forty winks at night time. Speakers have been installed so you can party wherever you are and these are powered by extra batteries which have been cleverly hidden. Doesn’t it just sound amazing! Check out the pictures below of the step-by-step process for his awesome project.
