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