  1. Window coverings camping privacy

    Image Gallery
    Finished my window coverings today. I used 1 25’ roll of reflectix from HD with nylon material spray glued on both sides. I chose grey for the interior side and black for the outer. I don’t like the way you can see the reflectix when it’s pressed Up against the window so I spray painted it flat...

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Hey everyone! I decided to tackle the infamous sleeper platform build. I borrowed from so many builds on this forum. Thank you to everyone who took the time to post clear and informative photos and detailed materials lists. I’m 6Ft so length of the platform and head room were my two biggest...
  3. 3D print/aluminium sleeping platform

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    We wanted a platform to use on trips and I designed an interlocking box system but MRS MT BIKE found the platform that hotkarl put together and liked the simplicity so we went for that. The main barrier to entry for hotkarl’s system is the fabricated brackets, which have to be fairly accurate...

  5. Homemade Ecamper

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I want to build a pop-top camper on the top of my '05 element. I do not want to spend the $3000 or an ecamper and also want to cut a larger hole in the roof in order to stand up in it. Since the chop and a pop-top is done with vans, I am hoping it can be done with an element. Along with...

    Best part is that no Element was harmed in the process and both the cabinet and the cot can be easily installed and removed. No drilling into the plastic interiors. Both pieces connect to the rear seat mounts, rear seat belt mount, and the ceiling grip handles.

    Racks, Hitches & Towing
    Hi everyone, I have been trying to read and research, it takes so much time. I live rural and hard to go and see and talk to people about my options. I love my E, and just got it last August. I don't want to sell it, but I do have a loan on it. Last month I called it quits on my relationship...

  13. My Element Camper

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I looked at all the threads for a camping solution and found many good ones. Some would require permanent modifications (such as the ecamper) and some were just flat out unstable and/or didn't use the space well. In the end I found the simple solution built by Todd Seydel to fit my needs...

  17. What I've been towing... Custom Trailer Content..

    Trailers, Campers and Teardrops… oh my!
    Thought it was about time to share the custom trailer that I built for scratch about a year ago specifically for traveling with the element. We normally sleep in the the E or in the roof tent that I also made and do a lot of traveling racing bikes so I made a trailer to support all of the...
