Wagoneer camper?

Been thinking lately about turning a Wagoneer into a camper, from the firewall back. You know, nothing fancy, just a place to sleep. Put a little window a/c unit in the firewall, build up the floor to a level surface, 19 inch plasma flatscreen, dvd and be done with it. Any comments?

Sweet!!! Do it, and pics are required! Better run dual alts and or dual batteries to run that flat screen. They suck the juice.

exactly what i was thinking. i've seen something similar made out of a pug nosed ford van that was two backs put together on a tandem axle trailer chassis, it would be nice to have the drop axle and a lower floor.

I had this 79 WT shell setting around and I was just thinking how nice it would be to have a camper that matched my 77Cherokee to take to the
overnite trail run. So this is what I ended up with. I have kitchen on slide tract and a water tank in the tire well with 12v pump. On one side there is a canopy and the other side I have rack to set up for a dressing room or restroom.

PM me your email address and I will send you some more tomorrow afternoon.

RTT (roof top tent) would be an easy option. They are very popular over at Expedition Portal.

Well this camper was build in AJ . You just missed it. Now you will need to a camp out to see it. I have some pointer, use a 4dr model not a 2dr. 2dr look nice but are hard to get thing in and out of.
