So I bought two more and installed them today.


Have you noticed a reduction in the amount of dust on the back of the camper on dirt roads?

Got word from my repair shop that the parts he needs to repair my Lance after the accident last month are coming in a few at a time. He’s hoping to get it started soon and hopefully get it back to me as soon as possible. Thankfully, the insurance company is covering it because it’s a $9,500.00 job!

The very last sections on the inner tub walls got their insulation and paneling after five years [emoticon], and the front wall beneath the cabover finally got its paneling installed over the plywood (All of the original interior walls have finally been paneled!)

The "floor" of the driver's side wing that over hangs the side of the truck got its insulation sheet installed (it's a sandwich of two laminated 5/8" sheets of plywood, a 3/4" sheet of Polyisocanurate foam, and then a sheet of 1/8" lauan plywood), and the 1/8" plywood overlay is going on next, then its time to start running wires and plumbing, and finishing the gas lines, while building in the lower cabinet frame.

Need to do a little microwave shopping before I decide on reusing Mr. KIT's original microwave, as the new microwave cabinet above the rangehood has room for a slightly larger one and the beauty ring is for a microwave larger than what I had in Mr. KIT.

Just the first two cut it down but it still gets dusty.
There were small racks that made it past the two onto my trailer so I added the second two.

I got the 2nd new front HappiJac installed yesterday. Gave it a trial run and lifted the camper up to 41". I've been leaving the door open as much as possible to air it out. It was closed up all summer and was getting a bit funky smelling. Realized this morning in all my haste to finish my back porch post painting that I left the back door of the camper open all night. At first light this morning I checked and all was OK. I was imagining what a coon would do in there overnight. Slowly getting it ready for use. Might sneak off to Big Bend or go fishing. A good washing and tank sanitizing coming soon.
