By off setting the door I achieved a few things.
For one you can mount a bike rack on the rear and still get into the camper.

I also split the interior. One side has the fridge, battery and storage, the other the stove, sink, water pump etc.
The heavy items are on the Passenger side to even the loads on the small trucks.

On the flatbed bed model we have an outside storage compartment.
This will also have assess to water and can be set up as an outside kitchen.
I am also playing with the fridge to slide out of the side as well, but not sure if i can pull it off structurally wise, since the opening has to be a bit larger.

If I were to design a pop-up for my specific needs and wants from the ground up, I would make the interior modular and user configurable. You don't see wood cabinets and marble countertops in the space shuttle or the ISS for a reason, it is a professional living and work space. These campers are used for recreation by most people but for some of us, they are for professional use in the field as in my case.

If I could re-arrange and swap out components on the fly and access nearly everything in the camper with a lot more ease, that would be incredible for what I use my current set up for. It could still have some comfortable appointments and accents, but be far more functional than they are now with a minimum of engineering.

I assume sleeping is front/back? Are you doing a pullout or a REALLY long cabover?

Cool product offering. Good call on making the base design for either a slide in or flatbed.

2007 Dodge 2500 quad cab 4x4 5.7L Hemi auto and slowly progressing build.

FYI: I've got a bunch of extra 14ga wire in red and black. Its a thick jacket 41strand wire (likely MTW wire) verse typical 19strand automotive wire. It has good flexibility but factor in the thick jacket. I'll ship out 100' coils for $18 (I can go 50' of ea for that too) if anyone is in need of wire.

Mark and I actually researched this quite extensively last year. There's one big problem that's a deal breaker though. IMO a full featured camper can be defined at a minimum as "warm shelter" which means a furnace is a requirement, or at least an option. You can't have a modular furnace setup because it is not legal to put propane hose quick connects in a camper. No heat and it's just too niche a product to invest a lot of time and money developing.
