You have some pretty awesome skills on that interior. Looks awesome! What did you use for your wall panels on the outside walls? And what do you plan to use on the ceiling? Just trying to get some ideas.

\n\nI believe the walls are called “project panels” purchased from Lowes. Flexible enough to fit against the curves of the wall. The ceiling will actually be the white plastic corragated roofing panels like the metal corrageted wall I have pictured in the shower. I choose that because of its price, flexibility and it’s easy to cut with no sparks. \n\nI haven’t been able to get much done lately. Trying to get life back in order. What’s new right!? \n\nThanks for all the compliments! Gives me motivation

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated. I’ve found it hard to find the motivation to work on it lately since my wife and I decided to get a divorce and this was our home on the road. I’ve contemplated even selling her. But who knows, she’s still fun to drive around.

I’ve moved into the RV Full time. It’s been 3 months. No toilet or shower but I’m parked on a friends property and use his stuff. I’ve been working on a new bed area from the floor up. I’ve replaced the rear side windows with lexan

Finally photo uploader works! Quick update. I replaced the two back side windows with lexan and mounted them sail boat style. No more leaks! Made a whole new bed area with 2 deep 3 foot drawers made with aluminum rails and skateboard bearings. Works like a charm. On the passenger side under bed is still the generator compartment. On the drivers side, under the bed, I’ll be making a utility compartment. It will house my new mini split condenser, a new breaker box (rewiring), tankless water heater, and two 6 volt batteries. I already bought a matching hatch (like the generator side) that will be mounted into the body so everything can be accessed outside.
