Impressive! Is the door a pocket type? I always loved those type of RV, I have seen one in 4x4 0r well 6x6? It had duals on the rear in all terrain T/A's.
The idea of being able to go almost anywhere and have power water, comforts of home, well its the living dream for a guy who loves to surf off the beaten path...

Unless you like to be close to nature by sleeping under a tree in a sleeping bag, an RV is the way to go,,,,,,and they sure come in all sizes and shapes,,,,I wanted the dual tires on mine to carry my motorcycle on the rear bumper,,,,that is just a plain panel door that I built,,,it really is the door for the closet that sits next to the toilet. And the toilet is in that box in the corner which opens up so you can get to it,,,,when you open the closet door, it closes off the frontroom from the bathroom and kitchen.....

Very cool roadtrip rig!! It's nice to be able to start from square one on the interior and end up with what you want/need.

The best thing I ever did was put a shower in there,,,,,aint nothing better than a shower to refresh you on the road,,,,,I made a drain pan and put it under the rear floor which is hinged to open up to stand in,,,,and I hang a shower curtain over it,,,,the water is in a 5 gallon plastic gas can with a 12 volt pump and a shower head with a horn button to turn on the water,,,,if I want a hot shower, I heat up a tea kettle on the stove and pour it in the can,,,,,it works GREAT,,,then put it it all back in th closet until next time,,,,,
