If you want a cool place to sleep on your outdoor excursions, check out this awesome DIY adventure truck for some inspiration.
Finding a place to sleep for the night can be one of the biggest challenges for outdoor adventures of any kind. Tracking down an affordable or free place to crash can be an even bigger nightmare. Sleeping in your truck can be an option, but good luck getting a good night of sleep like that. Unless you have your very own adventure truck.
We all may not be able to afford some of the expensive luxury RVs, like the Earthroamer, that are on the market, but building a DIY adventure truck is a great alternative.
The storage drawers on this adventure truck can be covered with a board to create a work surface and camp table. Utilizing all available space in a clever way is essential when building a DIY adventure truck.
The completed project is shown without the canopy for the truck attached. All available space was used which maximizes the usefulness and utility of this adventure truck project.
Hidden storage areas are the name of the game for this adventure truck. This one looks like it would be the perfect size for a sleeping bag or blanket.
The pull-out storage drawers were designed to run on a track made from bolts and ball bearings that are normally used in skateboards. The number of bearings makes for an easy and smooth motion when accessing the drawers.
The storage drawers are plenty deep enough to hold a ton of gear and are separated into sections for improved organization. You can cram a ton of gear into those drawers making you prepared for almost anything your adventure throws your way.
This adventure truck won’t leave you feeling bored once you turn in for the night. A cleverly hidden battery allows you to power all your devices and make sure you are fully charged for the next day. You can power almost anything with the battery installed including lights or a small heater.
The guy who built this adventure truck even thought to include some powered USB ports. There won’t be any excuse for missing text messages or emails while you are camping out in this truck!
Don’t forget to include a convenient handle to shut the door once you climb inside your new home away from home.
The completed DIY adventure truck project looks great! Just look at all that gear you can fit in the storage drawers and that bed doesn’t look too shabby either. This kind of project takes a decent amount of practical knowledge to complete, but it also looks like a great way to learn woodworking and the other required skills.
