Chevrolet Montana DIY Truck Camper Custom Built With Fiberglass Truck Cap

Thanks to DoItYourselfRV reader, Bruno, for sending in his custom built truck camper.

I’d like to share with you the story of our camper built in a GM Chevrolet Montana Combo (it’s a compack pickup with a fiberglass truck cap), 1.4 liter petrol/ethanol engine, 2010 model.

It is a great idea for making a camper in small vehicles like the Fiat Fiorino, Renault Kangoo, etc.

It was designed and built by Fieke Tissink (Netherlands) and Bruno Sbravati (Brazil).

We used mainly marine plywood for the structure and fitted in it a sink, a two burner cooktop, a 12V fridge, an internal rack for surfboards, besides a lot of storage space underneath the seats and floor. Behind the drivers seat we placed chairs and tables for external use.
