Just a few pics to showcase my new project...

I'll try to start a build thread but this is show and tell right?

Wow, that's going to be awesome. Do you intend to do another roof top tent install? Anyway, I look forward to seeing the new version some day when we are free to travel again. Cheers........................

This will be fun to follow - definitely has the "cool" factor going for it already.

I've said to Mrs ShuttlePilot before that if my current van is a total loss for some reason that this is the route I would build as a replacement.

I'm surprised that today, in 2020, that no builder has offered a 2021 E350 cutaway, 4x4 conversion, a modest sized box like rear, aircraft quality interior, couple of kilowatts of lithium powered amenities and charge 200-225k$ for it. Bridging the gap between the now crowded Revel class and the Earthroamer class. Allan Feld are you listening?

I love this set up Abitibi

A rocket on the pad is safe,
but it's not what rockets are built for.

I love those awning windows.

SMB-less as of 02/04/2012. Our savings account is richer, but our adventures are poorer.
