custom camper shell!

ok, so first off long time no talk =P lol thanks to all who reply

so i was trollin around on here today and got a great and i mean great idea, well atleast i think so. but im not sure how to go about it. my idea is this

a "pimped" camper shell. basically what i wanna do to it when i get it is this, put a moonroof or whatever (the one that dosent open) on it, and then a small fold down tv. now i know most beds have an plug in port but how hard you think this mod would be? it sounds relativly simple and cheap and i think if done right the whole thing can just pop off and on.

so basically what i want is oppinions,critics and all the other good stuff for the idea

its hopefully gonna be carpeted for a more stock look and then what im guessing i could do is run the wire under the carpet. the thing im most worried about is the roof. has any1 done something like this? cause i want it big so you can look up at the stars =)

so oppinions ideas and cost estimates would be super thanks.

oh and the tv obviously isnt going to be huge just anice little 1 on a swivel yadda yadda yaa

I say go for it. I saw a Toyota pick-up with what looked to be stock camper/sleeper on the back.

It looked like it would be a blast to own. I see no reason why you shouldn't do it up! Just make sure you take plenty of pics and detail your project for us.

I'm going to buy a cap sometime before winter, I really miss it, now that I don't have one. Sure it's handy to have such quick access to the truckbed, but there is something about having a cap, and then a small mattress, some pillows/blankets, and a cooler that I just love.

Hell yeah for the pimped out camper shell.

Just for the sake of sharing such a good deal - I found on sale last weekend, a 400 watt power inverter with 2 outlets for $35 CDN. It was half off. That'd be something you could think about getting. Though I'd guess with a camper, it'd have it's own battery/power supply.
