Re: And her name is Bivy...

Yes I am working for SMB. Installing solar panels, roof racks, bumpers, boards, lights, awnings, do pre wire and more.
You already install some accessories: lights, light bar and it is done good. Thank you for notice about switch.

Thanks, and thanks for participating on the forum.

Good luck with the rack. I know it is tight up there with all the stuff, but we were hoping to still have room to tie down a couple of whitewater kayaks. They are not big kayaks, and I figured I would find a way to tie them down.

It is possible to put on that roof rack any size kayaks. Also there is many options to tie them down.
I think you can find a way.

By the way, for anyone wanting to know, the build time for us is now estimated at 13 weeks, perhaps more.

What is on the floor? Looks like carpet but they wouldn't put that in now, would they?

It is a hard plastic sub-floor. The carpet lays down last and is removable for washing, which is great. There are a couple of options for sub-floor material - I think we went with the most inexpensive.

Re: And her name is Bivy...

I really like how you've embraced it, like its a canvass. The rope design is great. And downplaying the big MB advertisement on the grill is a great idea.

The time spent contemplating and adding features and artwork, even before the buildout of the interior, demonstrates a patience that I suspect is part of being a climber. Take one thing at a time and move forward.

It's a good example for others to contemplate for a project like this. It will be nice to not only see the finished product (maybe its never really finished) but experience life with it.

Thanks for taking the time to share the experience.
