799, I missed your question on the boxes. The driver side box is 6 feet long, 27 inches tall 29 inches deep. The passenger side is 5.5 feet long, 27 inches tall, 29 inches deep. The generator is actually not attached to the box. It is attached to the truck frame only to reduce vibration that could be transmitted to the box which is mounted on rubber mounts. MMM

Looks Great mmmc101 I'm hoping you are better by now? How are you progressing? I'm just now thinking of starting a project like yours. I'd love to see some more pictures.

Kurt,
Haven't worked on it the last few weeks. Real work keeps getting in the way. I am ready to install the skin on the sides and roof. Once those are in place I will start installing the slideouts. I'll post more pictures soon I hope. thanks Michael

Michael,
Must be the foot is okay.?? Glad to hear that. Work, is good it helps us pay for these projects. Look forward to the pics of progress....I'd come lend a hand but I'm in Michigan and my boss might have something to say about it.
I have a 2000 W900B with a car hauler head rack on it. I'm in the process of removing it. The truck has a 50 inch sleeper not sure what to do yet. That's why I'm interested in what you are doing. Keep me posted.
Thanks Kurt

Haven't had time recently to work on the toter. Real job keeps getting in the way. The outside skin is .040 alum riveted on using shaveable rivets. I have the rear and front skin and entry door installed and am starting on the side skins. Once that is completed I will fabricate and install the two slideouts. My goal was to have it completed,tested and debugged by 2013 when my wife retires so I haven't been in any hurry. Estimate your time to complete and double it !! I'll post more photos soon I hope. MMM

Finally found some time to work on the toter. Have three sides covered. Awaiting rivet shipment to finish the last side. Installed 3/4" plywood on the roof after insulating. Ready for one piece alum roof. Currently building the lower access door frames from 1" square tubing. The doors will be covered with polished 1/8" alum deck plate. Progress!

It looks GREAT!!. I like the back-up lights on the back they should work good. I am waiting on permits to put up a carport to protect the truck from the weather. It will be at least two months because I live on a creek and my property is in the flood plane. I will be putting the truck outside in the next few weeks after protecting it from the rain and snow. Keep the pictures coming.

Thanks Kenn. Finally got caught up on outside jobs and plan on spending the winter working on the toter.
Been following your build along and it's really looking good. Great craftsmanship!
I don't envy you working on it outside though. My old bones don't like the cold/heat.
Shame you don't live a little closer, I have room for it in my shop. MMM

im curious - did you go electric only on the water heater ?

personally (now having fixed blown reset/fuse) - i like the 6 gallon, lp/electric...hot water no matter what & i dont need to run the generator just to heat the water.

short of what seems like an ANNUAL anode change out the thing is low maintenance and it seems to hold the heat well and provide enough hot water for at least 3 or 4 showers in a row.

my routine generally is to turn on the water heater the morning we leave, heat the water as we're loading up & then turn it off (this way we have hot water on the road if we need it, w/out running the generator, if we dont need too otherwise).
