I didn’t get to work on my project last weekend. Yesterday I got to spend a few hours on it. Installed my air tank. Sandwiched a plate of galvanized I had in between the box and air tank to hopefully put a little protection in for the battery and compressor. I managed to order the wrong air fittings, the new ones should be here next weekend. Got all of my wiring for the compressor and pressure switch hooked up. The extra going into the bed is coiled up so I can run it through when I set the bed on next weekend. Mounted the pressure switch remote so that it’s not supported by the fitting just bouncing around.

It's coming along nicely. Are you doing a single compressor, or twin?

2014 Ram 3500 SRW 6.7 diesel - we call it 'Brutus'. Heavy springs, sway bar, and Rancho adjustable shocks, enough power that it doesn't even notice the camper, which is the smallest Lance makes. We've car camped over 30 years and finally decided a little luxury is ok. Photo taken at Toroweap campground - one of many on that long list of 'someday we gotta go back there!' places.

That is a good looking truck. I am kind of partial to white dodges.

Looks like you’re pretty partial to the whole set up. Truck and cabover camper. Cabovers are nice. Always thought that putting one on the front of a gooseneck trailer and having an open garage space behind it would be an awesome setup for a base camp.
No kidding!

Yes - very partial to it, mainly because at total length of 22 ft, it is very nimble for its size. I mean, it's not a Suzuki Samurai or a jeep, but it handles any Forest Service road on the Kaibab Plateau just fine. The most challenging road we've attempted was the climb up to Twin Lakes in Washington on NF-3065 off SR542. Had to back-and-fill on 3 of the 5 switchbacks. But the trip was worth it. Photos attached.
