Took my goose neck hitch to R&S Hydrolics today Steve said he could cut it and extend it the 10" I need. Should be done in a week. Cheaper than a new one.

I've looked at several shower configurations non were cheep. Almost bought one at lowes yesterday. Just the base is $130.00 and up. Well I went to a local pluming supply shop today looking for a piece of 4" pvc pipe for the receiver (that's a hole nother story) I had called them to check on one and didn't get a call back. So I talked with the guy that ownes the store he tells me they had one that was cracked and it should be in the dumpster out back FREEBE! Nice.
It's perfect 32"x 32" small crack across the front shouldn't hurt a thing.

I was a great day 50+ degrees.
My wife and I went last night and picked up the flooring.

Got that all installed.

Got the rest of the cabinets done and put back in just to see what they would look like.

Cut the hole in the floor for the shower drain and put it in place.

Cut and installed the insulation on the back wall.

Dropped the camper off to get the foam insulation sprayed on the inside of the roof. Scott told me it should be done by Monday.

Went and got a bunch of stuff for the shower and some paneling for the rest of the inside. Working off the aluminum structure is a challenge to say the least. I needed some 2x4's to attach the dry wall so I'd have something to glue the FRP to in the shower.

The shower tub is in place all the shower walls are ruffed in with dry wall. The lower cabinets are in place, the counter top is in, the wall between the living and bath room is built, some of the electrical is run. The formica is on the counter top.

The bathroom is going to be small. But won't be spending much time in there so it's OK.

Sure was a nice day today and t's going to nice again tomorrow. Guess I won't watch any football.

Thanks.

Measure twice cut once. If you can read a tape you can do all this stuff it's not bad.

Only got one piece of paneling up yesterday.
My holding tanks did show up. One black and one gray water. I guess both will require a vent. I'm thinking I can tie both together and it will run up to the roof behind the rear wall. Not inside the camper.

Shop is way busy. People dropped of 3 new jobs yesterday. We need a bigger place and more workers.

Well I got to work on it for about 45 mis today. Got most of the water lines installed. The second picture is the sink and the shower faucet. I had to run them through the cabinet and the gas line for the stove top had to come up through the bottom of the same cabinet.

Well I did work on it Sunday. Got all the propane up and running. I still haven't fired the water heater or the fridge but they are hooked up. The stove and heater work fine. I did install the fan/light above the stove. Moved one of the high mounted cabinets as I hit my head on it and looked like I may do that a lot so I moved it. The water pump arrived yesterday so the water system is all but finished 2 more connections and I'll be able to pressure it up. Buddy of mine has a deep cycle batt said I could buy it for $70.00 cheep enough. I'm not going to need much and could more than likely just run everything of the truck. No heater fan LED lights the gas valve on the water heater. Not to much to drain a batt. But I'm going to put one in anyway.I did get the trim around the counter top cut I still need to stain and varnish it. Also got 2 more pieces of paneling up and mocked up the bench.

Next big thing on the list is the holding tanks.

I'm beginning to think this is going to work!

Might look into a small solar panel to help maintain the battery. Just a thought. Camper is looking real nice, you have more patients that I do for sure!!

Got that on my watch in my Ebay account. I want it done now but I set a reasonable goal and work on it every chance I can. Even 15 mins a day make a defference. So do the 16 + hrs on the weekend.

So I'm thinking about outside color more and more as it gets closer to being finished. Here's my problem I want it to match my truck. But I'm not a big Dallas fan. (I'm from Pitts originally) The truck is Silver and Blue. It would look cool same colors. Also thought about resale (not that that's the plain but ya never know) White with some stripping would more than likely be the best all around color. Maybe FLAMES?

What do you all think??

What if you painted it silver then had the bottom done in vinyl wrap blue so if you ever did sell it you could just peal it off? Just a thought.
