I want to see this flatbed you speak of. It will cost some serious $$$ to do it, but I think it is the way to go.

I'd like to see it too...Normally, I don't like the look of a flatbed, but with the tanks maybe it would look good?

Anyone know how many gallons the spare tire tanks are and where to get them? I guess I could always put the spare in the bed most of the time and have some kind of mount on the camper when that's in? Or just right on the hood!

Jason is camping. I am sure he will post photos when he gets back.

Mine is about 40 gal and I got it from DFA. Spare tire rides in enclosed trailer with additional fuel and bikes, it could also ride on a receiver hitch in front of the grill.

I think that would work well for a camper.

Yeah, I guess it just depends on how much room there is between the tanks. Anyone ever tried a tank that covers the entire floor of the bed but is only a few inches deep? That way the entire bed would be available, just not as deep. Probably some issues with heating the tank and what would happen if you're going uphill and all the fuel runs to the back. Just trying to think outside the box...Or inside the box I guess

Does anyone know if there is somewhere to get the spare tire tanks? Putting the spare up front on a receiver hitch could work when the camper is on. I do like my 60gallon tank though.

Why would you put a small, cramped, top heavy camper in your bed, and pull a trailer with oil in it? I hope you're sleeping in there alone...

Id approach that the other way... Id have my bed for oil and storage, and Id pull a travel trailer, and be living like a king compared to a bed camper. You could even get a small toyhauler style TT, and store MORE oil in the garage area.

Its always hot here too.... so setting up camp on top of hot WVO just doesnt sound cool to me.

Thats just me though!

I want a slide in camper to allow me to off road more. I did the 5th wheel thing when it was 3 of us going but now the boy is about to that age where college and girls are more important than vacations with mom and dad. A place to sleep and eat is all I need. Wont be spending a lot of time in the camper unless its raining either.
I do a lot of reading on this forum http://expeditionportal.com/forum/ and this is what gave me these ideas.

I'm with Clay. My idea of camping is somewhere at the end of a long rough road.

That flatbed looks perfect. Tanks on each side and build in a couple of locking side boxes for tools and tire chains. What size bed is that? Hard to tell from the pic. Looks like another box would fit on the end.

My rig is white too....maybe he wants to swap beds.
