I am always looking for ways to add storage room for my truck camper.  The camper came with a raised floor with storage for the table only.  The rest of the floor was covered up solid.

I simply took the floor apart and started over, keeping the table storage intact.  I cut out more area of the raised floor to get added storage under the carpet floor.  I can store a water hose, electrical cord, shoes, or other items.  I now have more storage room and still have the removable table.

Many places we travel the Northwest Canada and United States require us to carry water and a shovel if we go off-road in forested areas.  You will always have water in you camper, but maybe not a shovel.  I like to use a long handled #2 shovel when possible, as it makes for less strain on the back.  Where do we carry such a beast on the truck camper?

There is a lot of unused real estate on the underside of the truck camper overhangs.  It is an ideal place for a long handled shovel.  I used two one-inch to two-and-a-quarter inch Quick Fist rubber clamps on the underside of the truck camper over hang and three-quarter inch plywood blocks were need as packers to get the right clearance for the shovel.  I also installed a velcro strap as insurance.  The Quick Fists are available on Amazon for about $11 a pair, they are made in USA, are very durable and strong.

Now we comply with rules and filling those gold pans got a lot easier with a long handled #2.

The only place for large pots, pans, and bowls was under the sink, so I installed a pull out drawer for easier access.  The drawer was purchased at Bed Bath and Beyond and is a perfect fit.

We have a bug, wind, and noise issue.  There’s a large gap between my Arctic Fox camper and the Chevy Silverado’s roof.

A lot of air gets trapped between camper and truck.  This creates some lifting of camper, oil canning, and noise.
