Back porch

We just bought a truck camper to stay on the beach and chase the fish. I have seen several TC with back porch’s and would like something like that for my Arctic Fox 992. I have been looking at either a 8x3 or 8x4 fold up out of 3x2 aluminum structure and 2x2 for the deck supports.

Has anyone designed and built their back porch? What are the pros and the cons and could you share a picture of your design.

Thank you as I am new to Truck Camper living and would greatly appreciate any help or advice.

Your Arctic Fox is made by Northwood. They have a porch option, but it may not be what you have in mind. Might not be big enough?

Truck camper at the beach

Our truck camper fits entirely inside of the 8 foot truck bed, so we actually have a small "porch" behind the camper.

I do think your idea of the 3 or 4 foot aluminum framed porch/deck is a great idea. It shouldn't be too hard to design and build.

We use our camper on the gulf coast to fish at the beach. Good times!
