pat thanks for the enlargment..."my poor old eyes etc"....anyway one question: Since you can't bolt/screw/rivet etc. aluminum to steel because of the "white rust"...what does showhauler do to prevent contact?....geof, who forgot to ask Lonnie that question.....

See the red stripes on the steel? That, I believe, is bonding agent which eliminates rivets or screws and corrosion due to dissimilar metals.

Yes that is a 3M tape designed to attach metal to metal, once it comes in contact with the surface it is not coming off.

I used this to bond my SS to the sides of the RV and you better be sure you have it right the first time or your bumming.

Great photo's Patrick, I think the way you did the cab will make life real nice getting in and out from the motorhome section.

More new pics! These show the 6'8" doorway. The foam insulation goes on the outside, then the skin. The foil/bubblewrap goes on the inside then gets covered by wallboard.

The conversion is a 28'. The cab to axle measurement is 226". The wheelbase is 296". The rear overhang* is 110".

* Overhang is calculated scientifically to take a minimum specified amount of weight off of the front axle, loading the rear bags...making the ride smoooooth, unlike any class a RV. With 200 gallons of H2O weight under the bed I ~should~ have an even better ride.

A few more pics have arrived:

The generator was mistakenly put under my bed. Lonnie at ShowHauler was glad to move it under the dinette...I'll sleep much better at night! For those of you who have never taken a financial ass kicking when selling an RV with the gen. under the bed (not to mention the lack of sleep), trust me don't make this mistake! A private toilet is another must have.
