Instead of what felt like forever demolition, finally came time to re-assemble. Covered the factory 90's wall paneling with tweed, man did that ever make a difference. Designed all new cabinetry in CAD and cut on the CNC. All baltic birch ply laminated. All new appliances, on demand hot water tank, Smev toaster oven, front seats, upholstery, custom flip up/hide away bunk bed to fit our family better and so on. A few more little things to wrap up but she's getting close!

Like a cross between mid-century modern/atomic and the 21st Century. Very cool.

Rarely ever used the awning in the past, always seemed like a hassle, especially because the awning legs no longer reached the ground because of the lift, and the hand crank was to short etc.
So I went with the Dometic 9500 power, floating awning. So simple now, push the button once and walk away. Also has a sensor built in so if your out biking and the wind picks up it will automatically retract. Seems like a great choice for the taller rigs.

Thanks! It was like deciding colors for a house renovation, it can bring a couple together or tear them apart. Everything seemed work together well.

The fold down sofa is on the passenger side, when the dinette bunk is not being used is folds away in seconds against the wall seen in this picture.

The one on the left is just an access for all the plumbing under the sink, the two below the toaster oven are just pull out drawers for storage, previously in the original cabinetry the upper area was used for a microwave and below that was a dingy storage area. These two drawers will sure make that space more useful.

Reminds me of the doubledecker couch from The LEGO Movie.

Looking good! That is quite the project. I really like the front bumper. Can you provide some information on it. I like it way more than aluminess offerings.
