I'm convinced I can build an ultra lightweight weekender. This wall weighs 36 pounds.
Cutting out the framing with a router
I used a laminate trim bit, and followed the profile in the luan.
I built the walls on this table. I screwed the frames to the OSB until the glue dried, then I removed the screws.
You'll notice the other panels leaning against the garage. Also notice the weekender mockup on the left.
Making sure the fenders will not interfere with the door. That's the fender profile...
The centerline of the fender is 49" from the rear of the body.
Drilling the holes in the wall to attach the walls to the subfloor.
The subfloor/floor assembly awaits.
The first wall goes up.
The second wall goes up
Marking the location of a cross member
The hole is drilled from the inside. The outside will be countersunk for the screw head.
We'll turn the front into storage.
Putting some spars up.
Working on the back cross members.
Checking the cushions for fit. This is a queen sized mattress.
60" x 80" mattress.
Eyeballing the galley area. I'm designing as I go. Can you tell?
Trying to find a place for the battery.
Eyeballing it from the other side... it's not coming together yet.
Back to work on the front.
Adding some more spars.
I'll cut a hole in the wall for a propane access door.
Chell wants to store water on the floor.
Still looking at that darn battery.
Yahoo, my wheels arrived. These look kewl.
I wanted these on my Baja Benroy, but couldn't find them then.
Trying to package a table in there.
It's a tight fit.
The table will slide under the cabinet for storage.
