Tx, 2x...it's a work in progress. i can definitely see more clearly the challenges with the service body as a platform. It's all the extra storage! haha Serioulsy though, it does allow for so many various possibilities that it can be a bit challenging determing what goes where while simultaneously maximizing the full use of each of the cabinets. I get a lot of extra storage but there's a decent amount of dead space in a few of them. That's obviously in large part to my lack of skills in design. Im definitely waiting for someone to do another build and really explore more fully the use of all the external cabinetry. Particularly in how they'd choose to have those outer cabinets interface with the interior of the rig. I can say i should have dedicated one of the cabinets exclusively to a easy access toilet system. I'll get my wrappon situation eventually as some kind of wall mount design but having cut a port from inside the rig into one the outside cabinets allowing for a toilet to swing in and out of would have been a good idea.
The flatbed and camper is a great combo. Were you thinking flatbed and 4wheel camper?

Yep, would most certainly be a lifted 4x4... with a massive battery bank.

Time has come to sell the rig. Selling for no reason other than an investment opportunity and to begin another build at some point in the future.

Watching the video shows what an increadibly well done project this turned out to be--massive kudos!

If nothing else this shows how great a service body platform could be---sure it was a pricey investment but at the asking price someone will definitely receive a well-designed and executed vehicle that's replete with pretty amazing features and utility.

Thanks so much for sharing your build with us---its been fun watching it unfold and come to fruition! I'd wish you good luck on the sale but I think it'll sell itself so that's unnecessary?

Tx, JWA. It's been a fun project and is still getting used. Just got back from a fun trip to Tahoe and the Carson Valley. Ive gotten a few bites. Nothing too serious yet, however. I'm afraid the market is pretty soft right now on most camping rigs. Post holidays people are holding the purse strings a bit tight. I'll just have to to the time it takes and find a good home for the rig. I'm sure it will sell eventually!

@KDB I thought I spotted you in South Lake over the weekend, was driving a Golf R & not the GTRV (only 2WD & I hate dealing with chains). Fantastic looking rig in the flesh, a real head turner. GLWS!
