Hack foldout camper

With recent talk about tenting with a hack, I thought I would bring out this idea stage I have in my mind.


I've been thinking of replacing the tub with a box long enough for sleeping length.
The bottom would be flat back to the rear mounts. Back beyond the mounts the box would extend underneath by about 6" producing an area for water and gas cans.

This box would be tall enough to reach the height of the hack fender rack so a platform could extend over the tire. A hinged platform extension would increase the size of the platform by 2x, providing a place for a custom canvas tent(baker?) to be mounted.

I'm thinking the camper could still carry a passenger with the center boards of the platform removed and stored on the floor.

This is about as far I have gotten with the idea of a long term camper for two exploring the desert areas.

Anybody else have desires like this? Discuss?


This is the only other ref I could find on a camper
