I think it looks good.  Gives it a real finished look without the actual look of stain.

Slowly getting to the electrical. Took a fair amount of planning to figure all the holes Inhad to drill, but the electrical cabinet and one breaker box are mounted.

I think you should cut some holes in the ceiling and add some skylights.  I’m semi kidding.  It’s be pretty cool but at this point not worth the effort.  It’s just my claustrophobia talking shit.  I get paranoid every time I walk in our trailers if the back ramp is closed up.

I agree, but very hopeful it will feel better once the windows are in. I always have the option of adding a couple more if needed.

Honestly, even our camper felt weird to me and a bit off.  The small room, low ceiling and relative difficulty of getting up and moving in a hurry freaked me out.  I would probs lay even consider some type of screened enclosure for the back opening.   Our camper had a roll up split screen that velcroed in the middle.  Granted the ramp would be in deck form and not on the ground where bears and other animals could help themselves but I’m sure there’s something you could do if you got creative enough.

I’m not too bad that way, as long as I have two ways to get out, I’m happy.

I was thinking about bolting a couple of these to the ramp door to use it as a “deck”. Plans are to do some kind of bug screen across the back, but I haven’t looked into them much yet.

We had those on one of our work trailers.  They were under the frame though at the back and not on the ramps but I can’t see why they wouldn’t work for that purpose.

Cut out the wood for the windows and got some wiring done. The game plan is to be done for August long weekend.

this project is getting so awesome.

I have wanted to do this just for cycling.  The plan now is to trade my current camper which is 30 ft and get something around 17 ft.   

This is a fun read and watch.

Thanks for visiting the Cafe, come back often.  There's always something new!

I agree with Jason.  This has been a fun thread to follow.  It’s looking good.  Those window cut outs came out nice.

Thanks guys!

It’s taking way longer than I wanted, but it is slowly moving along.

Tackled some more of the electrical after the kiddos went bed.

As one who appreciates nice, neat wiring - and understands how hard it is to actually do - I like it!
