Welcome

I just built a nice landscaping type utility trailer out of a frame like yours.

Not sure of any specific plans but if you type something like "camper plans" into Google I'm sure you'll find something.

Oh here, I'll do it for you : Google

I have some experience with this and a good friend built campers for a living for a number of years.
Based on what I know about home built campers you really have to sharpen your pencil and figure out what this will cost before you begin.
If you just want a painted wooden box on wheels and a simple bunk then yes, it won't cost much.
If however you plan on a fully equipped unit then I can say that you will be way ahead money wise and get a better unit by buying an older complete camper and sprucing it up.
