Got sick of sitting around so decided that installing some of the insulation was an easy enough job that requires no heavy physical effort.

Thank you Steve,

H grade polystyrene sheets, I'm able to source this relativity close to home at a good price and also have them custom cut to 19mm thickness.
This grade cuts very neatly with a box cutter and leaves little or no mess at all.
Considering where I live I've had extraordinary luck sourcing material for my project , items just seem to became available to me at the right time "but" I do spend a lot of time searching and researching online so I guess it has paid off so far.

I have had the good fortune to win one of ten $1000 vouchers in a competition held by Camec, I entered once after I purchased the windows.
Camec are one of the leading RV suppliers in Australia ,this prize of $1000 of RV goods will speed up the process and I'm aiming for completion around February or March next year.(Little did I know it would be an extra 12 months before I finished ed: 15/03/2015)
Weather should be fine then and I can complete the bits that need doing outside when the camper is resting on its jacks off the ground.
My website has had visitors from 41 countries and also 41 US states as well with many return visitors and now averages over 1000 hits per month.
Oh well, time for a spending spree. :D

I've received almost all my freebies and am eager to install them though only able to do little bits at a time lately as it's so cold in the workshop. Snow or hail is the order of the day at the moment.

well I'm envious, it's 110 F here, I'd much rather build in the cold than sweat all over my project

What a great deal Richard. Congratulations on a great score! The hardware looks real nice in your camper. I just wanted to say that you're build has made the campers section of this forum more noticeable. I have enjoyed watching your project come along. Great work.

Thank you Carl, that's very nice of you to say, I enjoy following the boat builds here and am amazed by the quality of workmanship even though boats are not something that interest me the process of building one does. I must admit when I received the email telling me of my win starting with "Congratulations on your win" My first thought was how did that get past my spam filter?, then realised it was from Camec and was legit...you would've thought I won a million dollars there for a while. :lol:

I Know what you mean , before living in Tasmania I was in Perth Western Australia for over thirty years and am very familiar with having sweat all over your work, 110 F ouch !(43 celsius) we used to get weeks of it on end with 32 celsius nights all very taxing and one of the reasons we now live in Tasmania pretty much the direct opposite of Perth.

I could have bought an off the shelf setup but I guess like most of you are aware by now I DIY where I can.

All the insulation is finally finished, really looking forward to fitting the outside skin and windows, hopefully out the shop in February.

Just a few pix showing the work done over the last few weeks, the 240v wiring and more work in the kitchen, I've also spent much time working on the pad outside for the camper to sit on at home which required removing a tree & stump :cry: for some reason the picture won't upload will try again tomorrow.
