Starting with a new blank slate

Good day all!
Love the forum, creativity and support here.
Have been on and off here as a guest, tried to read all the Foamstream thread, it's loooonng. Lol.
Have built a few projects in the past, bumped a HF kit to 6*10, built with drywall metal studs and corrugated steel skin. Called it my Armorhaul. And that was before I knew what I was doing. Which is still debatable. :shock:

Currently have a fresh blank slate to work with.
Would love to build it as a foamie. Just read ghcoe's foamie build, great job. My concern is the large size I'm pondering, 7*12*7, roof strength and the effects of road stress and torsion. Not to mention the time for all the coating layers. Traditional frame/ply vs foamie, to be or not to be, that is the question.

So seeking input, under which heading would I start a thread for ideas and comments to help determine how I would proceed? It would be on a cutaway van btw. :twisted:
Thx all.
Will see if I can learn how to add an image or two.
Easy peasey. :thumbsup:

As far as road stress. Foam Is great. It flexible so it doesn't crack or pull apart. The canvas covering make it surpriseing strong. With a nice curve on the roof you will not need a lot of support.
