Cleaned the garage last night. I now have about about 6'x15' of usable space. Soon to be cabinet shop.... Also found out the cabover is still leaking.... Ugh. We got more than an inch of rain yesterday, once it drys out a bit Ill have to caulk it from the outside.

Knocked out the bed frame. Its dimensions kinda drive everything.



I love these splices. Crimp on, self adhesive shrink wrapped. Good stuff.


Got the LED exterior light done.

Fan trims and interior pucks in.


I had to hook them up to see if it was going to be enough light. I was worried it wouldn't be as they are quite small. Its a good amount of light!


Started framing up the rear storage/wall. Its 1" .072 steel, this give me a 1" area I can insulate, and gives me some structure to support the bath wall from.


In place. This will be the exterior storage.

Bathroom wall and bed frame just about done. Cutting stupid angles with a skill saw sucks.


18" clear under the bed frame for storage. The plan is to have it lift up for access from inside.

Got a fair bit done yesterday.

Cabinet will separate the bed/dinette area. The bottom will have a pull out drawer for trash and recycle. The middle will be a pantry drawer, and the top will be a shelf open to the dinette side. It also created the back and base of the bench seat.



Bench sitting in place. Heater or water tank will go here. Like heater so its closer to the center of the truck, but that means small water tank..... Thoughts on heater not close to center? It would go right at the front wall, under the other bench.



All together

FWIW... We run an electric heater placed in the center of the cab. This keeps the cold air coming through the cab cut out at a minimum and blows all the warm air back. Of course the generator runs more frequently (to power boot dryers, heater and dehumidifiers), however in the winter our goal is to keep the moisture down with all the people and wet snow gear.

Go for the bigger water tank under the dinette bench!

Thanks! Im leaning that way.... I need to make sure I can get the heater into the front bench also, exhaust has to get out the floor, and the gas tank is right there. Its only a 12' box, heat will travel around. Im planning to cover the cab access with a moving blanket type thing when parked.

What dehumidifier do you run? We just have had heat only. In trying to keep 120V loads to a minimum though, small generator and inverter.

Yes! That's why I did the steel frame. It will be on gas struts and hinged at the back door. Ski boot etc storage will be under there. Also the batteries and inverter.

understand there is planned access from the back door.
just looked like there might be a good access point (behind the board) from the INSIDE living quarters.
