    Hay Smoky, it looks fantastic. That cupboard or hutch looks very useful and in per potion. You keeping track of the weight difference ? I'm just worried about being top heavy. A lot of time up here in Pennsylvania, they often ban recreation trailers as we get some good 20 to 25 MPH winds, especially on the New Jersey Turnpike. Just my $0.02. You thought about Propane tank and the generator ? I think that Onan is going to take up too much space. But considering the price, your light years ahead on this project. Really shaping up. The windows on the other side look fantastic as well. Great job Smokybandit !

    Yeah, but you haven't all the siding on it and haven't had it out on the road. But so long as your comfortable with it, all good. This isn't your first rodeo. But it looks great !

    UPDATE: more outside finishing up. Soon will be the next set of fun replacing the bathroom section and replacing the roof joists. For tomorrow I plan on installing the kitchen window.

    God Bless you Smoky! :applaud:

    If it were me, that would have been sent to the scrap yard and I would have looked elsewhere.
