WAAAAAAY too long, sharp corners look cheap. Looks like it was slapped together out of sheets of FRP. Even the wheelwells are square. If this conversion is hi-dollar, it doesn't look it.

Gary

Opening bid is only $45k, that's seems reasonable.

Do you think the sleeper should have been removed?

What do you think of the specs for the insulation?

How about the hot water system, what do think of it?

"The Aqua hot system has 5 heating zones, living room, bathroom, bedroom, all are controlled seperate for heat. The Aqua system also heats the shower water, and also heats the trucks antifreeze for easy starts in cold weather."

It's sort of a nice rig for me, simple in design, interior and exterior, hard for the dogs to destroy, 45' is a bit long in CA, need special testing from DMV to qualify to drive.

I wish there were windows over both the sink and stove, above the couch, in the cabover and maybe some skylights in the ceiling to allow more light in...

That was the opening bid, the reserve was NOT met.
