      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

free Free Clamshell canopy project

Free Clamshell canopy project. 

So yeah, life gets in the way of execution sometimes. I have collected 70-80% of the material required to make a full size standard bed pickup clamshell canopy camper. Think pop top on a VW Westy. I have;

1. Regular standard bed canopy,  pewter color missing 2 of the 3 front windows. 
2. The roof to a similar sized/color canopy. 
3. Mechanism to a VW pop top.
4. All the thermal insulation you could ever need.
5. Heatsource HS 2000 propane heater. (Make me an offer on the heater. If you follow through on the project I'll be uber reasonable. They go for 800 new on the web)

All you'll need is some rubber seal for the exterior roof or lid. Make or buy a VW westy tent. Make a supporting frame so you can sleep on the roof of the whole canopy. And replace the missing windows, should be cheap of you use plexiglas. 

All or nothing deal except the heater if you don't want it. Can deliver anywhere in Sno, King Pierce, and maybe the OP if you ask nicely. 

I included the picture of the Tacoma for design reference only. Let me know if you're interested  via PM.

Cheers
