The Mod-Ster moved to Mongolia with his wife Margaret. To save us from a mod-less future, we are calling the Mod Squad. Get your tools fellow mod makers, the 2020 truck camper mod contest starts now.
For last year’s Mod-Ster contest, we published two truck camper mods a week for 43-weeks. That’s 86-mods, but it wasn’t enough.
In an attempt to satisfy our mod starved readers, we also published nearly a dozen mod project reports with at least three mods each. That’s no less than 36-mods, and still it wasn’t enough.
In the face of this unrelenting demand for truck camper mods, we are launching a new contest for 2020. We tried to rehire the Mod-Ster, but the negotiations broke down over salary requirements. So we’re calling the Mod Squad.
Welcome To The 2020 Mod Squad Contest
Each month we’ll focus on one of the three mod categories; Mini-Mods, Medium Mods, or Mega Mods. Then we’ll publish one mod in that month’s category every email alert.
For example, we’re doing Medium Mods in February. Every Tuesday and Friday we’ll run a Medium Mod. On average we’ll have 8-mods per month. At the end of the month, you will get to vote on your favorite mod from that month.
Monthly winners will get an extremely limited edition Mod Squad T-shirt. Only the 10 monthly winners of Mod Squad contest will get one.
The 2020 Mod Squad Modsketeer of the Year
For the December finals, readers will pick the the best of the monthly mod winners to determine the 2020 Mod Squad of the Year: aka the Top Mod Squadder!
The Grand Prize is a $250 gift certificate to Home Depot, Lowes, or the big box hardware store of your choosing.
Second Place will be a $100 gift certificate to Home Depot, Lowes, or the big box hardware store of your choosing. Third Place will be a 2020 TCM Calendar and a TCM T-Shirt of your choosing.
The 2020 Mod Squad Contest Rules:
1. All submitted truck camper modifications must have been made by yourself on your own truck camper rig.
2. All modifications must be new to TCM. Please do not send in modifications that you have submitted for a previous Truck Camper Magazine mod contest.
3. All modifications must result in a physical change to the truck camper rig; cosmetic, decorative, and/or functional. Repairs do not count, unless they also improved the stock design, appearance, or functionality of the truck camper.
4. To submit a mod, use the mod-submission form. Every submitted mod must be individually submitted with the mod-submission form. We require at least one photograph per mod.
What Qualifies as a Modification?
A truck camper modification is physical change you made to improve the stock design, appearance, or functionality of your truck camper.
A modification can be a simple cosmetic change like new fabric for the seat cushions, or a floor plan change like a re-arrangement of the camper dinette, or the addition of a new or better component or appliance, and anything in between. Interior and exterior truck camper modifications and decorations count.
The best modifications are things you did to improve the aesthetics or function of the camper to better suit your personal needs. Did you alter your camper to make it work better for your truck camping lifestyle? Chances are you made a qualifying modification.
Good luck mod makers!
