I notice that your water tank mock-up is partially blocking an access door. Are you going to keep it that way?

Yes, it is like that for a reason.

 

The door is there mainly to allow access to the right front bolt that secures the camper to the deck. The other five bolts that secure the camper are accessible without the need of access doors. I made the door larger than needed for that so I could see the water level while filling the tank. Quite often we don't want to put the entire 77 litre capacity in the tank for shorter trips so this allows us to gauge how much is in it.

 

The larger door also gives us room to put a exterior water supply tap at that end of the tank and easily get to it.i-5RhTrLz-L.jpg

Manxman,

 

Congratulations on a new camper, and a new truck! I'll be following along to see your build. It'll be fun to watch your creativity for a second go around.

The new flatbed hasn't been built yet but will be much like the one on my F150.

The new truck.

Nice truck!  I've been thinking about upgrading from my F-150 SCrew.  My biggest problem is trying to decide on cab and bed size.  Your truck doesn't look any longer than mine.  I really want a crew cab long bed, but they're 20 miles long.

Any updates on your build? 

 

Are you in the Vancouver area? Have you sold your F150/Manx combo? I'd be interested in having a look at it.

I'll try to do an update on the camper interior build shortly.

 

Haven't had time to put the F150/Manx camper up for sale yet as the last several months have been very busy.

 

I'm in Kelowna. Send me a PM if you would like to arrange to see it or if you would like any information about it.

It certainly wasn't planned for the interior build of our new ATC Manx Flatbed Camper to take such a long time to complete.  With another truck and camper to use, it just kept being put off.  Having been home so much this year due to the pandemic, I had the time to finally finish it. 

 

It's great to see it out of the shop and parked along side the original Manx Camper.

The aluminum flatbed was custom fabricated for this camper.

The camper has a five foot cabover instead of the usual four foot.  It suits the length of the Supercab nicely and frees up an extra foot of interior space when the bed is pulled out.  The camper is 6'9" wide by 7'9" long plus the 5 foot cabover.

i-N2FPRcL-X2.jpgThe F350 has a Carli 2.5" Pintop Suspension System, Toyo Open Country R/T tires plus a Warn bumper and winch.  An Engel freezer is in the back of the cab on a slide.

 

Will put up some interior pictures of the camper shortly.
