How does Kozy Kar Kamper work? Much like a pickup truck slide-in camper works. The trunklid of the Edsel is removed from the car. The Kozy Kar Kamper is jacked up (jacks are attached to the sides of the Kozy Kar Kamper) to the proper level. The car is back under the Kozy Kar Kamper and aligned with the trunk space, and is cranked back down to fit in the trunk opening. (The floor of the car’s trunk is now the floor of the Kozy Kar Kamper. The front overhang (bed of the Kozy Kar Kamper) is supported by a left & right side support brackets that attaches to the rain gutter of the car (much like a canoe mount). The body of the Kozy Kar Kamper is resting on the car’s inside frame trunk and body supports, with the trunklid braces securing the Kozy Kar Kamper to the car.
