After snowbirding for a few years in a bunch of different rigs, we've decided to build a replacement for our '01 Lance. This will be a pop-up flat bed truck camper that may be the proof of concept for a later build using different materials.

We'll be building with wood for this project. Most of the materials will be from the local lumber yard or big box home center.

I'll do my best to add lots of pics. After reading through years of build threads here, I know you folks like the picture heavy threads. Feel free to chime in if you like.

Please keep the pics coming through out the project. Always nice to see other people's vision and ideas come to life.

This is where I'm starting with materials. We've got some locally milled 5/4 pine for the framing and two kinds of plywood. 3/8 BC for the subfloor and 1/4 ultraplyxl underlayment for sheathing.

I'm building the floor with 2x3's on the flat. The joints are pocket screwed and glued. The depth is filled with 1 1/2" of polyiso. Then 3/8 bc is glued and stapled on the topside and 1/4 underlayment on the bottom. I think I'll be coating the underside with Olympic Max deck resurfacer that I already have.

How do the pics look as far as size? If I shrink them some more I can load more per post.

Thanks. I tried using the resize me app. I think it's working good. It looks good on my end anyways.
