Here to make the most of a gas guzzler!

Hey y'all!

Making my way over from expeditionportal to make the most of my next build.

I'm mostly interested in aerodynamics. There are very few mods that haven't already been done to my vehicle... to decrease fuel economy. Despite the irony, I'm building a camper from the ground up so I have the flexibility to build a better box, which feels like something!

Looking forward to getting schooled all over again.

Interesting to say the least. I have always been interested in campervans and motorhomes. BTW would you consider a Diesel engine for your project?

When you say "camper," what do you mean? RV as in a motorhome (whatever size) or travel trailer? Or a camper top for on a pickup?

I've seen some amazing pickup camper tops, including a couple that I thought were pretty sleek, but of course them being independent builds no one has ever had any kind of idea on their aero performance beyond a seat-of-the-pants report.
