Looks like great quality workmanship! Pretty soon you will have to change from "new guy" to "old salt" ! :lol:
Keep up the good work!

Had a lot of yard and house stuff to do this weekend but I was still able to get some work on the camper completed. :D Finished paneling off what will be the shower and built the rear wall. Also paneled the water tank area. It was almost 100f this weekend so the garage was a little on the warm side. I think I lost 5 lbs just sweating. :shock:

Hey, great job on you're camper! You're moving along very fast! Sorry for the slow response. You said you were using 1/4" plywood on the inside and 1/8" on the outside. Have you purchased the 1/8" yet? If so, where and what did you use? I can't find any at my local hardware/lumber stores, or the 'big box' stores.

Great work on your camper! Keep the pics coming!

They have the 1/8 inch and 1/4 inch at both Lowes and Home Depot in my area.

Finished framing up and adding plywood to the shower area and started the "wardrobe" on the other side (across from shower). I actually plan to put a fridge and my electrics in this closet, not clothes. :D Also a microwave in a cabinet just to the left of the wardrobe and above the sofa (I think you can see the drawing on the wall). I also test fit the cushions tonight. I went with a sofa arrangement instead of a dinette. The sofa just seem to open it up more and seem less cramped. :?: The sofa will have a flip out portion that will turn the entire thing into a double size bed.

Built up the cabinet that holds the fridge and electronics. Below the fridge will be the 3000 watt inverter, fuse box and solar charge controller. Under that is the storage area for two portable six gallon gray water tanks that is accessible from outside. I painted it with three coats of oil based white. Doesn't need to be water proof but some water resistance will be nice. The back of the fridge has a 6 inch air gap. There are vent holes cut into the shelves that will allow heated air to flow up from the inverter area, past the coil on the fridge then out the top compartment which will either have a roof vent of side vent. I have two 12 volt PC cooling fans that will help push air up and out if needed. I want to figure out how to hook them to a thermo-controller if I can.

Finished up the headboard today. It will have lockable storage inside. Should work out well for anything that should be locked away. :wink: Also framed up the openings under the counter for the sink area and framed and cut out the window to the cab of the truck.
