Pick of the month September: Caddy Maxi DIY camping box

I’ve dug out another gem for Caddy owners (the first one being this) – a very detailed instructable on how to make your own DIY modular camping box – measured to fit Caddy Maxi (our #1 car for camping).

The author “thomasfannes” took a lot of time to draw a 3D model of the camping box in SketchUp – which he generously shared in the instructable. It’s a .skp file – you need SketchUp to open it. But even without the file, there’s plenty of images and details to follow to build your own camping box.

To give you a taster, here are a few images of what you can expect (these don’t cover all the steps, for that, see the full instructable – link at the bottom).

The camping box includes

  • plenty of storage space
  • drawers for water , gas cooker and more
  • a fold up table to eat comfortably inside
  • huge space for sleeping
  • plenty of headroom left

The DIY manual inlcudes:

  • camping box measurements & how to put it all together
  • how to make & fix your own curtains
  • how to fix the camping box in place

Founder of, avid traveler and outdoor enthusiast. Car camping and microcamping allows me to keep traveling and exploring with a much greater level of freedom & privacy – to go anywhere and sleep anywhere. I didn’t have 30K to buy a VW Multivan, so found my way to the world of everyday car camping conversions. Here I share my experiences and what I learn.
