Looks great. Can you share some interior pictures with us (Couldn't get the link to work...but maybe it is me)?

Dude, sorry to see it didn't end well. I read your thread about it on another board.

At least now you can get a heftier truck to build on. Did you manage to get the camper's weight down ?

Pretty neat rig. Do you have any inside shots and any estimates on the final weight?

If I remember...you had airbags installed, right ?
Any thoughts on how to get the weight down now that its built ? 1780 still seems pretty heavy for that rig.
Looks like a good job though, but the weight sure adds up fast, eh ?
I had to be pretty ruthless about a 10' trailer I was trying to keep under a thousand pounds.

It's good to hear the wreck wasn't yours.

yes air bags and added 2 extra leafs(4 total) to the springs.
kind of gave up on the weight after this weekend.
3 full coolers/table/5 sleeping bags/generator/2 batteries/holding tank full(9gal)/20L of water as well/stove/portable bbq/20lb propane and 5 little tanks. the list goes on. :D

still a thought of removing the plywood and replace with tin siding.
glad the wreck wasn't mine either.
