November 22, 2007what are you pulling it with?
November 22, 2007Like DUUUUUU! A truck!
Couldn't resist. Seems to me Eric had a Ram 2500.
November 22, 2007No, the small kid is the reason I need a 'camper' to begin with. In the picture he had just fallen off the toolbox and was coming out to show me the lump on the back of his head.
I've got a 2002 Ram 2500 CTD with a Banks towing kit on it. Man the gooseneck tracks real nice behind the truck. But between the hidden hitch ($350) and telescoping mirrors ($550), it cost me almost a grand just to be able to tow it. Mirrors are on their way. It is freaking impossible to back it up without help at this point.
November 22, 2007Backing up is over rated any way. The only direction that matters is forward.
Them mirrors were pricey, you might have bought cameras for that. Sounds like there real proud of them.
December 9, 2007Starting the tear down to get the tanks installed. Then is generator and the wiring. Here are some shots of the progress:
January 5, 2008Been working hard on this over the last week after being sick for ALL of Christmas break. I've got the fresh water tanks installed (2-30 gallon tanks on each side, 1-20 gallon tank in center) and plumbed to the city water hookup. Each has it's own fill and syphon valve so I can run them in any combination I want. Here are some shots of the tanks and valves.
Here are some shots of the water heater going in. Its was tough to hack this first hole, but since the windows come in this week, I figured this was good practice. Nice little 6 gallon gas heater with electronic ignition pilot so you just flip a switch once the gas is running.
January 5, 2008Eric...you're making good progress on the "People/Jeep Hotel"! Where are you getting all the information on how to do the project? What will be the weight of the finshed product? Keep the progress pictures coming!
January 6, 2008Looks real good. That something that I want just don't have enough truck or someplace to keep it or money to buy it.
January 6, 2008Looks like quite the project. Mine is only 8 ft square and it was a project just getting everything I needed to get it done. A couple of trips to northern Indiana camper factory surplus stores were not at all disappointing. Good new parts for cheap. Most were leftovers from previous models.
Looks good so far...

Couple of good links for you.
Did most of my shopping here. The prices were a lot cheaper at the store than the website but you might find what you need that you can't find else where. They had factory flip out beds complete with canvas at one time...special order. http://www.rvsurplussalvage.com/index.php
Got my mattresses here. You can't beat a quality nights sleep. You can order any size you need with covers. http://www.knoxfoam.com/store/home.php
