This is  what began Compact Camping Concepts; the Explorer Box Construction Manual.

Explorer Box Compact Camping Trailer Plan Manual

Currently, this is the only available DIY compact, lightweight Tent Topped camper tailored to smaller vehicles.  They notably expand your available space, providing storage and cargo hauling capabilities, making smaller vehicles a practical option wherever away from home adventures take you.  Its compact footprint is a benefit when being towed and stored.  The light weight minimizes the impact on mileage and doesn’t overtax your vehicle.

The inspiration for the  Explorer Box design is the simplicity of vintage Tent Trailers with some Teardrop Trailer influences.  There is a front kitchen/galley area with organized, shelved storage compartments and counter space.  When in transit, the front deck area provides open storage for your cooler; making it accessible without unpacking.  In the rear is a large general storage compartment for bulkier items and storage containers.

An Explorer Box is a straight forward, DIY friendly project with room for personalization and tailoring to your specific needs.  It uses a plywood building method that home-builders with basic woodworking skills can use to create a durable trailer that will give you many years of service.

    With cars being smaller because of higher fuel costs, this type of camper is quite fitting for those who want smaller campers for their smaller vehicles. Being customizable means it can be as unique as the person who is building it and/or fits their needs.

    This is really awesome! I love camping projects like this. I’m going to be making plans available for a DIY RV truck camper, but this is a great alternative to write an article about. (Heck, maybe one day when I’m desperate for more space, I’ll pull a little trailer like this with me. Might be a good way to have a mobile workshop.)
