Not Quite an SMB Build

Well... a few of you have asked about my new build project so I will give you the story. First, its not a Sportsmobile, or even a van. You may say, this thread belongs in Campfire or even a different forum all together. So instead of polluting the sanctity of SMBForum with something so blasphemous as a alternate lifestyle vehicle, I will simply give you a link to the story.

http://www.mini-dx.com/EV-2/EV-2_ERA.html
I will try and update the site when I can with trip logs so at least we can share one thing in common.

Enjoy

Footnote:
Even though I no longer own a SMB, I still find myself looking through the threads on a daily basis (as I have since 2008), but contributing less and less as time goes on. The members of this forum are extremely lucky to have such a great online knowledge base. For the last year I have been visiting Jeep forums, and I am here to tell you this site is simply the best. Great members, terrific moderators, and the one of a kind Jage that holds it all together.

Re: Not Quite an SMB Build

Lol I did the opposite...sold my 2008 4dr JK for my van. Nice set up but I was tired of 15-16mpg in such a small rig and sleeping in such a small space. I lived out of mine while guiding all over the NW

Re: Not Quite an SMB Build

Very nice, I sold my Unimog for a home build, now I can go over 55MPH on the freeway!

Were did you get the fold down shelf with the slide out self. very nice, would be great on the barn door.

Buckkiller is right. You can get them from Adventure Trailers
http://www.adventuretrailers.com/acckitchen.html
Mario (AT) also has a number of cool accessories that would work well with a SMB type build. One of the only other places I have found that sources the shower valve system that SMB uses.

Or also from the Mfr.

Here is a good thread on tailgate tables. Maybe a different one is more well suited for the barn door.
