Took this with us to Clayton. It's a 220 vt 185 Hobart. We used it twice. The 4500 Onan handles it nicely.

That sure would be nice. Could have used something like that a couple times last year. In the pic it kinda looks like you might be needing a new liner though now ??

Do you have a list of where you bought everything and what you paid? Looking at adding a shower and toilet to mine. Would like info on the fridge too. Mine is electric and works, just really small.

Sorry I've bi out of town. Just got back. Any way heater local. sink ebay, kitchen fasut local, water tank water heater ebay. Roof a/c unit local RV dealer. Pluming Lowes all PEX tubing and clamps. As far a s pricing I found the ebay stuff was less money the water tank was the most diff I have no idea why but it was way cheaper. I have bin going to the same RV dealer for years and I would bounce prices off him. He told me witch ones he could meet or beet and I bout what I could from him.The holding tanks I knew a guy that had some conections and got them way cheep $50.00 each I think.

Thank you. I found a pair of 42 gallon black and grey holding tanks on Cl for $20. Now I'm trying to find the fresh water side of plumbing.

Long time with no progress.

Well I'm taking her out of town Thursday. (headed to Montros Co.) Were going to need an extra bed so. Got this done today. Look close at the pillows and curtains. For those of you who know my big Jeep most call it Mater. Did a quick job due to leaving this week. I used muslum so it should wear well and I can die it later any color I want. I figure the white will get dirty quick. The covers have velcro on one edges so there removable and washable. Not as nice as I'd like but not bad for a rush job. If you look right above the electrical panel you can see the strip of wood the pull out sets on to make the bed.

Other than post 68, do you have more plumbing pics? Specifically water tanks, pump, etc? Did you just put a fill on the water tank, or have a city water and fill connection? I lucked out and grabbed a roll of red and blue pipe from the scrap pile of the has they're building next door. So all I will need is fittings, should save a few dollars at least.

Ya got lucky I just happen to have the bench taken apart today. Not that these pictures will help you any. I used a fill door and tubing from the local RV dealer. he taken I bought on line as the water heater.

OK so back to work on the camper. Got the shitter tank just about all done. Had to cut the 2 holes in the top and glue in the fittings. I've got the vent ran back through the floor and up through the roof. I wanted to wait till tomorrow to make sure the glue is completly dry. It's mounted and I've got just a couple more things to do.

Well I had this winch laying around and thought it may work to drive the jack in front of the camper. The pulleys will not work I got a belt and tried it. I already scoped out some sprockets and chain.

It's painted. The bottom is the silver of my truck. I have used it several times and it works great. I wish it was 8 foot wide and not 6. The fridge I had held back for it dosen't work. .
I'm going to paint the bottom or the frame if you would black. I got all the exterior lights working again this past weekend. I also installed 2 led and 2 tractor style work lights facing the deck area.

Looks good in person. I saw it outside your shop on my way to Amarillo this passed weekend. Your rig looks much bigger in person too.

It works well, small only being 6' wide but I don't spend a lot of time in it. I eat sleep shower. I think the small windows make it feel small also. I have tought about installing larger ones. It pulls down the road great I've had it at 110 mph and it feels fine. I'll get some pick of the inside and post them may not be this week as I'm leaving for Montrose Co to go wheeling Thursday. Got a fridge back in March I was finishing it up today.
