Geez, Greg, you coulda just called me! Friends donít let friends do heavy things alone. But, it looks great and youíll feel good on these 100+ days. I thought about putting an AC on my poptop but 100 lbs is pretty heavy!

I had help from my son on the lifting part, so it wasn't really that bad. I appreciate your offers, the use of a fork list did come to mind.

Adding Windows

So on to the next phase windows. I decided to go with Arctic Tern Windows. For the record I purchased them from Campervan HQ

The first step was to figure out the actual location, I mean i had a idea, but that doesn't mean it will fit there.


Before committing to final location I drill a pilot hole, then go inside and check location and adjust accordingly


The next thing you know there is a window installed. I know i skipped a lot of cutting, grinding and such.



Here is a shot of the combined screen/shade unit.


Screen mode



and the thermal screen from the outside.



You can decide if you want the shade to come up from the bottom, or down from the top. The last shot is in half & half mode.

I love those windows. I had them on my trailer. Itís great having all the elements integrated and I always liked being able to keep them open in the rain without consequences. Great job!

Hey Greg, nice van!

I'm in limbo at the moment as they aren't accepting any new 2020 orders but haven't opened up 2021 orders yet. I was wondering if there was anything you regret getting/not getting for your rig? We are looking at a AWD 3.5 Ecoboost, HR, Long.

At the moment no, I might change as i get further in the build. I just actually put the second tank of gas in it, so I haven't really got all that much seat time.
