Thread: Our Box Truck RV Conversion

  1. #211
    Sorry for the delayed update. Death in the family and resulting financial issues have put me in a tight spot.

    Finally got a proper subframe built. 1/4 in tubing is thicker and heavier than I thought!

    MUCH better with the overhang supported and box sufficiently mounted.

    Just removed my rear window, cut the pass through, sealing with salvaged rubber from inside the box as soon as I can get to Home Depot after work for some sikaflex or construction glue of some sort.

    AWESOME! Glad to see it nicely done. That is exactly what is needed.

    Sorry to hear about the family issues.

    Thank you and appreciate the condolences. I'm going to try and get some of this massive list of things to do before our first real test camping trip on the 8th of this coming month. At least try and make it sleep able

    Looking good. Make sure you get a flexible polyurethane adhesive, not regular construction glue.

    I know this is completely off topic, but I'm reasonably desperate. Anyone interested in buying an 03 2500HD Diesel with a Dana 60 SAS? I need funds to finish projects!

    Isn't that the truck you're putting the box on?

    Nope, the one with the box is a slightly newer 06.

    Oh that's good. I thought it was the same truck, too. Was worried you were bailing out before you even got started. The new sub frame looks much better that v1.0.
