    Thanks for those- those were old pics before I changed the rack system, paint, wheels, tires and finished the conversion. I edited the original post to include the remainder of the info and pics. Somehow my computer posted before I was done! Sorry!

    LOL! I guess I am the lowest form of "camper", as I just use a 3 man tent... I think this takes camping up a notch or so.
