If you have ever wanted to go on an adventure, but lacked the funds to do so, pay attention to Redditor tylerthompson21 and his DIY adventure mobile. Sure, you’ll need a truck, some wood, and other building materials, but following his lead will save you serious money. Why spend years saving up for a camper if you can build your own right now? It looks like it takes quite a bit of craftsmanship to complete, but perhaps a solo journey isn’t the best idea for someone who can’t build an adventure mobile. Take a look at how it’s done.
The frame and ball bearings in the bed of the truck.
The frame is bolted for easy removal.
He used skateboard bearings for the drawer slides.
Looks like they work.
So far, so good.
The drawer and its dividers.
Hatch to hold a battery.
Another hatch for a secondary battery.
The lock for the drawer.
Another lock to secure the drawer.
More latches to keep the box from sliding.
The frame, now with a water seal varnish.
The last photo is AWESOME. Go to the Next Page to see the rest…
Other parts of the drawer varnished.
Sheet metal lock cover.
Power inverter and USB ports.
LED light bars.
The drawer pulled out.
The finished product.
What a great idea! I wonder where his first stop will be. Wherever tylerthompson21 decides to go, I hope he’s prepared to explain this again to his fellow campers. People are going to want to know about his creation.
