I am in process of design of the camper for the LC80 , sure that this is long way to go but wanted to share the CAD overview of the build:




The frame would be from the aluminum, TIG welded by some welder I hope to find in the future. The bonding the same as everybody else - sikaflex. Theh composite panels would be from uro-camper.

Yes, this is kind of project that once you begin there is no way back. Hope to make it right at least from the safety point of view. The frame of the camper would be attached to the enforced c pillar of the cruiser the same way as here:

Catia, have not heard that name in quite a while. I used it for a short time many, many years ago. Have been full time on Solidworks since 2003. Hope your project turns out wonderful!
I only use Catia at my work. We contract with all the major commercial aerospace/airframers. They all use Catia! Took me about 5 years of using it everyday until I finally started to "enjoy it". haha.

Yes, that's the template. What I am not sure is how extrem fahrzeuge attached the frame to the body. Custom campers which is the fork of the innovation campers does it by enforcing the c pillar. I don't see any enforcement here.

Here is the process of making the camper by extrem fahrzeuge:
