Well there's good and bad to it. We are currently on the beach at Myrtle Beach. that's good. There are 5 of us in here ... not as good. lol. Its tight, but I can sleep 5 now and there is still room in the "toy room" for 4 bicycles, a toddler trailer, my motorcycle and a single tool box instead of the normal 5 tool boxes.

I think I like the foam rubber floor best. All the sand and so forth just brushes right out the door. The old carpet held all that sand and dirt. Trust me, when I removed the carpet, it was all there under there.

holy sardines... but family outings like that are great... I grew up (which is often debated) in a family of four kids and we camped in a pop up for years... including a huge shepard collie , a canoe, 6 bikes , four kids and a sunfish... camper behind a saburban...

tight heck yes... but what great adventures we had!

yeah but the combination of two "bored" teen girls and a 4yold boy antagonizing them made it smaller and smaller. lol

Hi Doc,

Did you cut between cab and box? And if yes, what did you do with respect to sealing it? I wonder because this thought has been coming to the fore with the Moby project.
