It has disappeared. But it's easy to just use a free hosting site like IMGUR.....

Ok, let’s see if it worked this time.

Here’s my attempt to add a picture - it’s taken looking down through the sunroof from above through the hatch we put in the overhang of the TC;

That’s awesome. I’ve never seen anything like that.

That was actually billtex who said that, but that’s ok. I wanted to see a picture of it too. Some mods take more balls to execute than others. This one took the large kind. [emoticon]

Wow, Riah. That is something and does indeed take some brass to do. Love to see a pic of the boot.
How big is the hatch? Looks like you'd have to be a starving 12 yr old to get through it! LOL!
My first thought before going back and reading your use of it was escape hatch. If something dodgy going on outside the TC, you could drop down and drive off. If someone broke into the truck, you could drop a noose or down. LOL!
Me, I'd let the three Chihuahua's through and grab the popcorn.....[emoticon]

If its booted that would be a slick way to preheat the camper while traveling to destination

Hi,

It’s only minimally booted; meaning it is not insulated well enough to be very useful in heating the TC, as its currently booted. (We didn’t even consider using it that way, but now I guess we’ll have to take that option into consideration and upgrade the boot design!)

I preheat the camper while driving by turning on the furnace in the camper with my bluetooth thermostat.

That is certainly an option but you are using up propane . The truck cab heat is practically free . On a long drive the difference could be significant in cold climate . The same could be done with a pass through window.
