Woody Benroy for 4...

Postby Aramais » Fri May 25, 2018 9:21 am

Well hopefully this goes as planned. I've been off and on building for a couple of years. Had to move in the middle of this build, and the wife lost her job as well.

Overall plan is for a benroy with bunks. I stretched a 4x8 Harbor Freight trailer to 4x10. I'm building over the wheels. So there will be no fenders.

Nice platform!

Going deckover gives so much potential storage space under the floor, along the outsides. . .

Well I've made it back from a trip to Dublin. Now on to making more sawdust.

Managed to get the bunks, the galley, and the interior cabinets cut out.

I've also routed out one of the walls for said cut outs.ImageImageImageImage

Had to say how nice your work looks. It's going to turn out a very high quality and good looking camper. I too know what it's like to have a build go on for a few years. This is the first year I've been able to really put some time in on mine. Plus I only have seasonal work space. Have to shut it down in the late fall. Keep pluggin. It will get done!

Thanks John and Mr Lahey

Well I finished routing the other wall, gave the floor a coat of primer.

And more importantly hung the walls and put up the bunks.ImageImageImage

  • Your carpentry looks good, much better than mine, and I like your galley arrangement (mine is storage only, alas!), but I have a question about your A/C framing. Surely you have a plan for the underside support of the A/C unit, and for the handling of dripped condensation that most all A/C units produce? I see no signs, so far, of how you'll do this, since your cabin/galley bulkhead behind the A/C seems solidly sealed.

  • I incorporated a drip pan into my so-called "galley", sized to hold a Reliance Aquatainer, with a drain tube routed out & under the trailer. My LG 5000 BTU A/C unit has never once dripped into it, (probably since LG's use up most, if not all water produced, in cooling the chassis coils); but then, my A/C exhaust is fully enclosed, and might evaporate any excess condensate before it can drip.
