Glad you guys liked it. I figured that someone would like the canvasing process. I show both ways that I do it in the video.

After the chunk.

The leaves are turning color, the weather is cooler, and a (young?) man's fancy turns to hurling gourds!

Short answer, No.

For one thing, the camper is not finished (or even campable) yet. The chunk is a team event and we work hard enough setting up and tending to the ballista that it makes for a long day... we commute and dine together, and I usually want a shower at the end of the day. That, and it doesn't make sense to bring an additional vehicle just to tow the camper. Another advantage to going to the hotel with the rest of the guys is that I can help when we string out our bow line in the hallway to make repairs and adjustments, rather than risking getting it in the dirt; dirt in high strength synthetic fibers is no bueno. Maybe someday.

(Sorry for the hijack.)

Part 2 of building #2 is up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTl7ZokgbuM&t=5s

Just got to bolt the body to the frame today and it is done. Looks like it is coming in between 48 to 50 hours build time. Could be cleaned up quite a bit I am sure. Enjoy.... :thumbsup:

The biggest thing I noticed is that you can see through the back window with the center rear view mirror. Outside of that it seems pretty much the same.

Very nice build, I like the simplicity of the design. Do you have an overall cost to build one of these?

With the premade door and window cost of about $450.00 this build was right around $1200.00. If you build your own windows and doors I think this build could easily come in under $1000.00. :thumbsup:
