19 Camper Mods

These are the top 19 camper modifications we've made (so far) to make travel more comfortable, efficient and to make the best use of space. The beauty of these customizations is that they can work on many different rigs other than our Escapade Backcountry squaredrop camper that we call, "Poe."

We hope these give you to some ideas for things that you can use for your camper.


Thank you for watching. We hope you'll subscribe to get the best Wobbly Otter adventures, how to's, and gear reviews delivered directly to you.
