    Looking great! I am very impressed.

    I may have missed it, what will the finished weight be?

    Nice progress to be sure! I'm really liking the modified steel door with the storage port in it. Something I've always liked about the Defenders. Nice to see a version of it showing up on the Jeep.

    It looks like the spare is mounted inside. It would be nice if you guys could figure out a way to mount it in the back.

    You might want to relocate the mirrors with something like this http://www.quadratec.com/products/13125_102.htm It's going to be hard to see with the mirrors in their stock location.

    Also one more thing... Make sure you offer some blinds because there is nothing worse than being woke up at 530 in the morning by the sun rise.
    1. I'm sure my partner for the U.S. will over every option you can think of.
    2. Thanks for the link, of course we'll offer a mirror relocator.
    3. Here a link to the windows ( right / left / rear ) WAECO Seitz S4 Windows they have:
    ■Convenient one-hand operation: fly screen and blackout roller blinds can be clipped together and adjusted with one hand at the same time.
    ■Easy handling in different positions
    ■High degree of insulation:
    blackout roller blinds with aluminium coating
    ■Quick and easy installation
    ■Robust quality with double acrylic glazing

    Thanks for your positive comments!

    The weight without wall carpet, matress and seat upholstery, cables and tubes, but with all other parts is 320 kilos. On the Unlimited we take off parts with a weight of ~ 200 kilos. For now we are 120 kilos above the stock Unlimited. I guess we'll end up with 150 kilos, which is fine for me. I was a pain in the *** for all contractors, but it seems to pay off.
    .
    The aerodynamics are fairly good. The top speed dropped by 10 kilomters only, while the milage with the emty body dropped by 0.9 %.

    Thanks for your positive comments!

    The doors are very lightweigt glassfiber sealed, bolt-in parts. Due to the fact that the Unlimited doesn't offer the passenger entry slide / fold seat function, we had to build-in these ports. I costs more but is the best way to use the room. When we order the two door ports and the two cabinet ports together, we get one key for all ports, but two units for each port. One to use and seven keys to loose. Just kidding!

    Thanks you too for your positive comments!

    In full rear position you can recline to a comfortable angle where I couln't reach the steering. Just right for a 6'5" person. When I find time I'll make a photo with my 6'5" friend.

    Just uploaded the newest photos showing the almost finished furniture. At the moment all walls get covered with padded insulaton carpet and the upholstery is done....

    Default Beautiful

    I really like this design very efficient use of space.

    I noticed though that it does not seem to be designed for 4 seasons. Any plans or designs in the works to remedy that?

    Thanks

    The first ActionCamper is ready and on the way to the SEMA show in Las Vegas from 1. to 4. Nov.. Hopefully the container will arrive in Long Beach on the 17th of October, to get prepared for the show on time.

    but there was no time for nice arrangements and so on.
