Makes sense on the heater, but that can be designed around as I am sure you have figured out. I look forward to seeing what you come up with. I think I am set for now, but in 5-10 years, I might have the money to change my rig a bit.

I'll be watching...


The way to do it is that you keep all propane related items hard mounted but you can remove the rest for a "work" truck.
This way if you use the shell in the winter you can also heat it.

"For a limited time we will offer the XP V2 Outback model which includes ALL of the above options at a
Special intro price for $ 19995.00"

After a quick look at your web site I was wondering if you had any plans for a full size truck slide in version of this? I like this price point as opposed to your original camper which I believe is over twice as much.

Love the design and cutting edge technology. If the price can be kept some what competitive you'll have a winner and I for for one would be very much interested. Looking forward to the interior view especially the bed arrangement.

What are your plans for the tent material?

Also, what kind of window closures will there be on the tent?

On the 2nd gen taco the measurement is 80" from inside the bed to the windshield wipers.

But I can make all XPV2's to pretty much any size.


I'm assuming that is for the double cab though? I was talking about a regular cab. But if you're planning for customizing the length if needed then people shouldn't have any worries and can trade off overhang verse interior space needed.

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.

What is the gap between cabover and cab? What flat beds are people using on the Tacoma and is it possible to built from the frame up?

At this price point, I am *very* interested...

Likewise I am VERY interested at that price point. Ideally I personally would like something like an XP V2 to fit on a 1/2 ton truck (like my F150) - the smaller trucks are too small for my family of four + dog, and the big 3/4 tons I don't need for the rest of the year when I'm not camping. I'd be ok with converting to flatbed if necessary.

My requirements are that it would have to sleep two adults plus two children comfortably. I don't need or want an indoor kitchen, I never cook inside in bear country/animal country anyway. Kitchen slideout would be perfect. No problem with rearranging a few things to 'set up' the sleeping area at night. My current FWC Hawk is just a little too tight for the four of us so I want a bit more space/less weight than the Hawk (and I'd like to find much better build quality.... :) )

Is that realistic? I was starting to think about putting $$ away for the regular XP but if something in-between, a bit more affordable, and useable on a smaller vehicle is in the offing then it might make more sense, as $40k plus the cost of a new 3/4 ton truck is stratospheric. The only downside I can think of is that I wouldn't be able to have my plan of bringing along a small motorcycle on a hitch carrier, as the vehicle couldn't handle it, and the door would be obstructed.

Exciting news, Marc! I really like what you're doing with these campers.

Yes, there will be a slide in model.

Same as in the XPCamper.
Insulated, breathable, durable and removable for maintenance.
