We have a 2012 Touring we bought new and have put on 185K+ miles on it, much on long distance trips up to 7500 miles. Tent camping is all well and good, but we want to be more nimble.
A couple of years ago we built a platform over the folded 3rd row seats with storage underneath and 2 Labradors on top. The largest Thule roof box and the largest gear cage on the hitch handle "extra cargo".
Sleeping in the seats has gotten old. We are ready to pull the 2nd and 3rd row seats and build a platform for sleeping with storage underneath.
We plan on adding a heavy duty inverter, a BattleBorn lithium battery, and a charger controller which can accept input from the vehicle, a generator, shore power and solar. We'd need to box those out.

Our question is are there plans and photos out there anyone knows of, or would share? We have seen a couple on here, but they don't quite meet our needs.
Thanks in advance!

For a proper overlander vehicle the pilot is not the choice of hard driven campers. You should look for a bigger chassis to have more room in the long run. Your better off looking online for over landers few pilot builds out there but it sounds your already past the novice stage. There are a few you tube videos of people living in a pilot, so I’m not sure if that’s the route you want to take for camping. Welcome to the forums!

Thanks for the welcome. The Pilot is the only vehicle we've got, so that's what we're building out. Platform worked well, for dogs. But not full sized adults.
