Hi! I'm another one of those folks who have been lurking here for months and finally getting ready to order an ATC camper. There are 5 of us (Mom and Dad, 3 little ones 6, 3, and 9 months currently). I plan to order a flatbed shell and do a custom interior build so we can all cram in there.
I have a 2006 Toyota Tundra 4WD DC. I am in the process of putting a Ute Ltd flatbed on it. I spoke with Jeff at All Terrain Camper for 15 minutes and he answered most of my questions. I have a question for y'all, the owners of All Terrain Campers:
Is it possible to remove the headliner material and install insulation material in the roof without completely removing the roof? If so, I plan to order the ATC camper without roof insulation (or even without the headliner installed), and install Thinsulate in place of the fiberglass. My main concern is condensation and leaks. I know both will happen. Thinsulate is hydrophobic and breathable, so it will air/dry out easier than fiberglass. Has anyone tried to replace the fiberglass with a different material?
There are 5 of us and we will be going to cold/wet places, sometimes for weeks (my mom lives in Vancouver, BC). So I don't mind doing extra work to minimize condensation and mildew/mold.
Thanks for all your great advice and input. I hope to get a build thread started once we finally get the camper!
