The water tank is 15" wide by 15" deep by 22" long. It has an irregular shape where one side extends to 24" long. I will try to get a picture to send.
Hey Chad,We just arrived home from 3 days/2 nights out. Once again put the turnbuckles to the test on day 2 and first part of day 3. Within our 3 day/758 mile trip, we did about 80 miles of forest service road including 3/4 mile up a spur we had no business going up. Ha. I managed to not rip the mud flaps off (they flexed/folded rather than ripping off) and only touched frame one time. It was about 35 minutes up in 4x4 low range 1st gear and 25 minutes down. We were on a similar section of road two weekends ago but that was was a flat shelf road rather than a climb. We were in 4x4 low for about 3 hours that day. Needless to say I appreciate that OEV specs their dealers install their brackets using stock bed/frame bolts and other brackets are tied to the frame. Previous brand camper was installed with eye bolts just through the pickup bed sheetmetal with large washers behind and not sure it would have held up to all the overlanding/4x4ing we are doing nowadays.
This morning, we woke up to 29F. Also our first below freezing night this year. Regarding condensation and venting. We sleep with the heater set to 58F. Used to set it to 52F, but maybe we are getting soft. Plus this camper is so much better insulated than our previous that we use less propane running it at a warmer temp. Usually we do crack open the vent over the bed. Sometimes we also keep the dinette window cracked open, but that is usually when temps are above freezing. No matter the temp, we crack open that window and crank on the heat in the morning to circulate some air through. Our CAMP-X is when they were only putting the insulating foam on the lower extrusion; not on the upper 1" of exposed extrusion along the roof. That 1" line is the only are we get condensation. Since the newer ones have that 1" strip foamed, I assume that is nearly eliminated. If you are getting a bit along the caulked edge of that seam, I wonder if it would make sense for that foam to be 2" rather than 1" wide and extend out onto the gel coat of the ceiling panel. The same could probably happen on the lower extrusion if one really wanted to be ready for winter camping. For us, we don't do that much below freezing camping, so I've not yet even bothered to add the foam strip to our top extrusion as the condensation usually dries before we drop the top (as mentioned, we vent in the morning and run the heater in the morning). Occasionally I go around that uninsulated extrusion with a dry washcloth but until it is below freezing, it hasn't warranted it. Will mention again that we are in dry Montana so cold wet area would experience more condensation.
On this trip, we were well above freezing each day and just tickled freezing at night, but I choose to err on the side of caution and drain the water heater each night. I use a container to catch the water that drains out of it (maybe a liter or so) and dump that into our portable toilet to use for flushing. Nothing wasted that way.
Can you confirm/edit the wording of your sentence regarding moisture under the bed? Was that to say you "haven't" experience moisture under the bed or "have"? I would be surprised if there was and so just wanted to confirm if that was a typo. Also curious the story on your modded CAMP-X overcab decal mod. Are "C and P" initials? Or some other fun story/meaning?
