I had to move the camper from the tent in order to tape the underside seams. While I was waiting for some help I decided to see what I could do myself. I was able to slide the camper out onto some skids and tilt it up all by myself. It was surprising how easy it was for an old man to move.

Wow that is impressive moving it yourself!

It looks like the side panels have a lip sticking out past the rear panel. What is the purpose for that? Or am I seeing it wrong?

You are very perceptive.
iIt’s intended purpose is to act as an air spoiler to prevent the air from wrapping around the back. It has a 45° edge sloping toward the center in hopes of having this effect.

This is very cool and I'm glad the thread got started. Are you building from your head or using some plans?

This is my own concept and dedign.
It is backed up by years of traveling in my Alaskan Camper, Toyota Chinook, VW vans, plus others.
