Really enjoying the pictures of your conversion. Keep them coming. Really looks low in the back or is that just the pictures.

Man that bad boy is looking cool! You have got to be excited to get your hands on it and watch all the on lookers drowl from there dropped jaws.

I had so much fun at Mid-Ohio. When I pulled in to the entrance gate(and remember this is a car/motorcycle race course) the workers and the thousands of spectators where just point and looking like I was from outerspace. I screwed up and was short a few bucks cash so I had to pull around to the credit card gate and that was great. It was like parting the sea, everyone making it a point to move far out of the way. When I drove back to the backside of the course to one of the motorhome sections, every camper in there was pointing and I had a lot of thumbs up.

Only one minor problem when you are the center of attention. I like to have everything spit shined at all times. And that is alot of cleaning and polishing before, during and after a outing. And my wife really hates the fact that we have so many lookers come in and take a tour. It keeps a on my face though knowing that so many people really love the look of these.

Too funny is the story about the genrator-OTOH- My Coon Hound and I need the background noise or I/we can't sleep. He's up checking the house and peering out windows-and of course waking me up when something needs investigation....so the generator would be of benefit to me...and of course the toilet shower issue has always been a "must have" deal breaker....The truck looks perfect and I'm sure you are getting nervous/excited-thanks for the pix-I really appreciate you sharing them with us...geof in Cincinnati

Hamie, the back tires are at the bottom of the hill that leads into the shop. I was impressed that it didn't bottom out. My former Safari couldn't have made that grade. Stick around for some pics on flat ground!

Sitting in my driveway?....I've thought the same thing many a time....'specially when reinsulating the interior-folding,bending and cutting flat foam to fit a curved interior...OY!...next time I'll get a box trailer-skru that wind drag factor. Two days of that will drive ya nuts-though the finished product can he heated and cooled with very little energy....at one point the girl that works for me said we should paint Budweiser backwards on the interior...geof in Cincinnati

More pics up. Lots of lighting, twin 100 gal. fresh water tanks, looks like 4 speakers in the ceiling. Hot water heater located under the kitchen sink where room is plentiful instead of the usual robbing precious space in the bath. http://www.solidaxle.net/pat_sh/
