Final glue-up, assembly, and addition of the inside cabinetry framing and added grooves for last bit of cabinetry framing in the galley area. Just some high speed videos to see here.

Well folks, I know it's been a long time since an update, but I was busy building the camper! Check back in a few weeks to see our more-in-depth description of the beauty! In short, I got sick of doing all of the documenting of various design intricacies and videos etc. I captured several more videos, and then it got to finish work, which is tedious, slow, and doesn't show up well on a time-lapse camera.

Some information:

Dimmable LED strip lighting for ambient light inside.
LED spotlights for reading inside
Faux tin roof inside
Code protected cam locks to lock the doors
35psi 12v pump for running off of a collapsible water jug for running water for shower or sink. Also works on shore water
Drain from sink goes into other collapsible jug
120V GFI, circuit-breaker outlet for when using shore power.
Dimmable LED strip lighting for hatch to illuminate galley
Key-fob-controlled entry lighting for doors on side
Weight ~300-350lbs empty.

We took it on the maiden voyage last weekend to Amish country. 185 miles on 5.7 gallons of gas = ~33mpg. Not bad! It was light enough that I couldn't really feel it unless I was coasting, I could feel it pushing the bike a little.

I used a fish scale to verify tongue weight at ~40lbs. Added cooler with some ballast to the tongue to achieve that.

Check back for more pictures in the near future! It's almost done!

If I had asked the people what they wanted, they would've said "Faster Horses"
