I’ve been living in vehicles since 2014, starting in a Honda Element, upgrading to an ’85 VW Westy, moving into an off-road equipped Toyota Tacoma, and recently adding the luxurious comfort of a truck camper. I spent 5 months remodeling the camper, and now that it’s done, I’m happy to be living full time in a slide-in pop-up truck camper.

Terk the Truck Camper is a 2002 Toyota Tacoma (with plenty of modifications) and a 1989 SunLite SkyHawk camper (with way too many renovations). After living in a two-wheel drive van for 3 years I was bored with crisscrossing North America on paved roads and wanted an adventure rig that was off-road ready. While the Tacoma was a no brainier, the truck camper was a bit of an afterthought, and if I could do it all over again, I’d probably start with a bigger truck. But alas, I already owned Terk, so I made it work!
