The first of our new Kodiak line of truck conversions is done and ready to roll.
This Kodiak truck camper combines awesome off-road performance with camping comfort and style. Unlike extended-bed truck campers, the Kodiak “Trailhead,” with its 144-inch wheelbase, is no longer than a standard pick-up so you can easily turn around on those tight Forest Service roads and park at that remote trailhead (without taking up the entire parking area!). The suspension systems, wheels, and tires have been extensively upgraded resulting in amazing off-road performance and reliability. Its balanced, low center-of-gravity and nimble “size advantage,” makes the Kodiak truck camper a great ride. Simply put, you can go through – and/or get out of – just about any off-road challenge you’re up for! And with VMI’s obsession for quality and “the details,” you’ll have just as much fun camping as you did getting there.
The living space in this model is designed for two adults who are each happy with having their own luxuriously comfortable twin-size bed. One of the two twin-size beds convert into a 4-person dining area with a premium cherry wood removable table. Because each of our Kodiaks is built to customer specifications, we can custom design the sleeping configuration as well as all the design features to meet your needs. The galley includes a diesel stove, stainless steel sink with hot and cold faucets, refrigerator with separate freezer door, and a microwave with a convection pizza oven. The cabin is kept comfortable with a diesel furnace with two hot air ducts in cold weather and seven opening screened windows and a 10-speed, temperature controlled, ceiling fan provide plenty of ventilation year-around. There’s a full complement of interior and exterior LED lights, well placed USB power (12vDC) and 110vAC outlets and an awesome stereo system.
The Kodiak is capable of long extended trips “off the grid.” The galley sink and outside hot and cold shower are supplied by two stainless steel 40-gallon fresh water tanks (80-gallons, total) and a 6-gallon hot water tank. The four deep cycle AGM batteries powering the camper are automatically charged via the “smart” 2000-watt inverter/charger by the bank of roof-top solar panels or by the truck engine itself with its ACR-controlled power system.
