.....what is your exterior wall/ceiling/floor R-value/materials....and what is your planned BTU from HVAC unite?....I don't see any exhaust venting or air movement unites to cut costs and make comfortable your living and sleeping areas....geofkaye

WOW!

Talk about thinking things out.

Very cool. So do you have that mock up in your shop?

Keep us posted.

Warpath, the mock-up was in the convesion, see the photo above. I just used some old sound board to get an idea of how to space things out.

KAYE RIVERCITY, 2" floor and wall, 4"-6" ceiling insulation, see(http://truckhome.com/eve/forums/a/tp...7/m/6661008833). I will have exhuast vents in the kitchen and bathroom, It will be a ducted system, turn on the fan for air movement. Looking at a Hydro-Hot or Espar for heat, like the idea of not having to use propane.

Nice stuff! Keep us all posted on updates, please!
Your plan has many similarities to what I have in mind for "The Future Rig". It's cool when great minds think alike. Really. I think.

vapoppa, I was looking at the smaller Hydro-Hot, looks like a nice unit, still waiting to find out the price. Espar also makes similir units, I was thinking of the Hydronic 10 (http://www.espar.com/htm/Specs/water/D9Wspec.htm)


Gary Atsma, I wanted a different layout than most conversions. The bedroom is small, almost like you see in a boat, called a cave. The bathroom is a medium in size. The kitchen is small, but will have every thing that you need. I left out a dinette to gain some space. The living room is big and their are no overhead cabinets anywhere.
