I decided to play around with my camper a bit-- I like the design overall, but it doesn't give much "play" space.

Posted Image
So, I took out the chairs... and made my own.  Opens up more space for movement.

Posted Image
They chairs recline!  Like all good camper chairs.   :wink:

Posted Image
Here's one outside so you can see what it looks like.

I also changed the color scheme back to blue and red from the white, grey, and green.

ETA:
Been playing around some more and decided to edit this as such... wanted to mod my little camper a bit too.

Posted Image
Not sure if I like the lights on the side.  Also, I had to work with the pieces I had, so that's why the blues are a bit weird.

Posted Image
Inside: a bed.  This tiny camper really can't fit more than one person.

Posted Image
This bed doesn't fold up, though.  Sorry the minifig's face is blurry!

Not a bad idea there 'slovakiasteph', just the dark bluey grey doesn't fit and the cab roof is now out of alignment with the rest of the vehicle.
Also no sink....but it's understandable - not much room to move eh ? :wink:

Nice idea, Steph.  I thought about elongating my camper but this is better.   :classic:

Neat mod 'slovakiasteph'. I always wondered why TLG hasn't given us a camper with a bed. Don't minifigs need sleep, too? Posted Image
Great job, anyway!Posted Image

The cab roof was higher than the rest of the body before... now it's lower... either way, no one wins!   :laugh:   I like the way it looks higher anyway.

I need to get some white plates to use for the floor... don't have any now!

Thanks, everyone!

Not a bad improvement at all. I've always liked this set but agree that its lacking in detail. There is very little room for adjustments but I think you did a nice job on it. I may actually pull mine out and see what I can come up with.

We can have a camper mod group!   :cry_happy:  Well, if you do, please post pics or comment here so I can take a look!  I've been looking at other Lego campers all day now...

I like the stacking of the surf board and car on top as LEGO suggests, but I wonder if there is a good way to tack them on to the front or back of the vehicle. I'll have to experiment with some of my creations.

Thanks for the MOD inspiration.

On some of the older camper versions, there's a C-clip on the back to attach the fork of the bike.  Not sure what else you could do with the surfboard, though.  Time to get creative!  :)

Would love to see photos. Detailed descriptions in words just don't work for me. . . . .
