FWC Project M Aluminum Extrusion Build-Out
2019 Ford F-150
2022 Four Wheel Camper Project M
We bought a Four Wheel Camper Project M, which is a shell model. We wanted to make the interior more user-friendly while concealing our gear.
I built the interior using aluminum extrusions from Tnutz.com. I chose that system due to the price point. I also utilized the shelves from the Project M.
The Tnutz system uses many different types of interlocking connectors; hidden L brackets, L brackets, three-hole corner cubes, etc.
In my camper, I’ve incorporated running water, a sink, a hot water shower system, a diesel heater, and a microwave. I also have other gear for when I’m out and about.
I have a fifteen-gallon water tank plumbed to a Joolca HOTTAP water system. It is essentially a portable propane tankless water heater. I’m in the process of hard mounting it into our camper for less setup when camping.
For a sink, we use a Dometic three-gallon tank with their Go Faucet for washing dishes, brushing teeth, etc.
My diesel heater is self-made and loosely based on Xventures diesel heater with my own twist. I will be hard mounting it eventually in the camper.
We have 200 watts of solar that powers our two Goal Zero Yeti power stations; a 1500 and a 1000. They work perfectly.
We are running the RIGD supply tire carrier that has an optional table that can be attached to the rack. I love that feature. The whole system is hitch-mounted.
This build-out has been a task, but it has paid off in terms of cleaning up clutter and having amenities in the backcountry.
Extrusions and hardware from Tnutz and 8020.net.

It took me too many hours to complete this modification and cost me $1,500. In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is hard.
