18 May - done for the day.

Storage areas have faces, but no doors yet. Need to complete main door and mount. Make doors, mount electrics, and paint.

Anyone got any ideas for outside corners that will seal the top to the painted sides? I don't want to rely on caulk and paint only to keep the rain out.

18 May - Looks like it will come in around 600 lbs.


:shock:

And you're going to tow this with a motorcycle? That is awfully heavy. I'd respectfully recommend looking for ways to cut weight.

Re weight comment: I can pickup one end of the box with relative ease, so my weight estimate could be off. Won't know for sure until I can weigh the completed unit.

25 May – Doors finished except for color. Ran 110 V 30 amp service with four outlets. One in rear, one outside behind camper door, two inside.

Applied primer to outside. Thinking two-tone, grey on lower, yellow on upper side. Must decide soon, “tempus fugit”.

One cogent comment from family: "It is wider than the bike. How will you see to change lanes?" Hmm, wider mirrors, maybe.

That’s what they make rear RV cameras for. There’s probably some on cars and suvs in the wrecking yards by now.

I guess I have out-lived/lost my "great mind" card (70 next month). My car & truck both have backup cameras, but using a camera for lane changes never crossed my mind.

Thank you, gentlemen.

:yes: :ok: :good: :thanks:

A big thank you for the rear view camera idea. :good: EBay has many different models, now to decide which one.

Still need to attach battery, run 12V wires, attach lights, build the rear hatch, bolt the body to the frame, finish the detail painting, and finish the inside.

Some progress made :builder: , pics attached.

Took the camper to Carlyle Lake for 2 days, thought the 2 great-grand-daughters (10 & 7) were spending the night. Nope, scheduling errors, so it sat unused for 2 days. Had an almost tornado (60 mph winds and inches of rain), so I brought it back home.

Kerryb & joedrum : Does this place look familiar?

Did a mileage run tonight - averaged 36 mpg on flat 2-lane roads. Looks like a 10% reduction from normal. Yes, you can tell it is behind you. Had another biker tailing me and he said there was no tail-wagging or wiggling.
