Thanks man. I’m happy with the way it’s coming together. I set a budget of $1500 at the beginning, but I’ll probably exceed that a little. Ok with me though, to get the camper I want.

Thank you sir. Haha, not really smirking, though I am happy with the way it’s coming together. A friend, that’s been following the build, wanted to know, if I was going to be able to sit inside. I sent him that pic, of me in my favorite camp chair.

Got the rear exterior panel on and insulated the roof. Did a lot of block sanding edges and openings today, with #80 grit. Next weekend, I’ll install the last two exterior panels on the roof. I asked the question in the building tips section, but haven’t got a reply yet. Do you guys have a recommendation on what to use to fill between the two roof panels?ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

The structure itself is built. Put the final two panels on the roof. I used 3M panel bond, to fuse the two roof panels. I work in the auto body industry and this stuff is used to glue automobile roofs and truck bed panels on. There have been tests done with this, gluing wood together. You will break the wood, before breaking the bond, so it was perfect for what I wanted. The underlayment, I used on the outside, is some beautiful wood. Too bad, it will be covered in canvas. My only regret, so far, is that I didn’t use it for the interior panels. Live and learn. Just need to make a door, do some final sanding and apply one or two more coats of “the mix”. Then it’s time to canvas.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
