Over the summer Russ and his wife arrived from Canada to pick up a Tent Unit and Explorer Box Construction Manual.  During the summer they mounted and used their Tent Unit on their Jeep and when fall came around Russ began building his Explorer Box.

When Russ informed me of what he had planned, I thought wow; this is going to be one nice Explorer Box.  He began the build on an aluminum frame and added torsion half axles.

When building the box, he used 1/4” marine plywood covered in a layer of epoxy coated fiberglass. On the inside all the corner joints are epoxy fillets with a strip of fiberglass, very strong and lightweight.

He revised the front galley area from the plans and added a slide out propane oven.

With all that completed, he applied a beautiful automotive grade silver paint job and topped it off with a nice set of aluminum rims.

Congratulations Russ, you’ve built one very nice and unique Explorer Box!
