I didn’t take the camper but I spent the weekend in George Washington National Forest and took a bunch of drone vids 543A001A3281B3C742515249B59E54AC.JPG

I didn't catch it if you said but, who's door and window is that and what are the dimensions? That looks like the size I want on both but pictures tend to be decieving.

It’s been cold in the shop so I’ve been moving slow on finishing. I’m working on bending the aluminum over the roof and cutting the trim for the sides.

Looks familiar except I covered mine in Filon instead of aluminum. I like the side window. I went for dual doors since my wife likes to get up in the middle of the night and so do I.

Are you going to leave the aluminum raw or are you going to paint/polish it?

I got the door on Amazon from Vintage Technologies and the big window was taken off of an old camper shell.

I had a stainless steel countertop made for the back. There’s a white cutting board on drawer slides so I can pull it out if I need it. Everything has been plumbed and wired in the back of the camper

Funny how that works. I sourced teardrop parts from all over the place, including Lowe’s and Bass Pro.
