The kitchen is really nice. I love that undermount kitchen sink and the wood cover for it. Of course you did this all yourself? Good job brother!

Upper cabs. Sweet. That's one of my pet peeves...I like lifting roof designs, but they always seem to be short on upper cabs.


You are right and its because they are mounted to the roof and have to be out of the way of the interface between the roof and walls that makes them a pain, I still need to get some internal baffles so that the stuff in them doesn't go all over the place but its a welcome bit of light stuff storage for sure.

Just made it through the entire thread. Awesome work!

I might have missed this, but did you remove the stainless slides? I thought they are between the moving parts, but don't see them any more.

Thanks

Thanks for the comment, the slides are still there, maybe you saw a pic of the door side of the camper where there are no slides.

We really like the kitchen, works well for us and we have just finished living in it for seven months. Sink and wood are the most inexpensive bits, I think the sink is an IKEA bar sink and the wood is that cheap laminated pine shelving you find at Home Depot that was epoxied....it was meant for a short term of duty but it has stayed!! And yeah all done myself, thanks brother!

Thanks, yeah we go to the interior a few times a year, mostly Armstrong area if you are near there, passing through this year on a partial x-Canada trip in July.

Do you have any more recent info on your motorcycle and rack? It looks different from what I remember.

Truck looks awesome.

Nope, no motorcycle or rack for it.......just our pedal bikes on the back with the old set up.

That, sir, was a great read - from the technical build info, to the quality work, to the great outdoor shots... thank you for taking the time to do this.

Waaaay back in there, you showed your long pipe cheater and breaker bar for lug nuts. You mentioned, perhaps, needing a 1-inch breaker. I did the same thing, at first, on our rig and damn near killed my back. Then I found one a torque multiplier and now my 110-pound wife can break the lug nuts free. One of these sets now rides in a side compartment. I got it through the Amazons and it's the best $90 I've spent in a long time.
