Joaquin- No offense taken- I have been questioning the thread title myself the more I think about it. I have to say that for the most part most of the build threads on this and other internet forums are basically open source unless the OP has finished the build and is posting up the whole thing after the fact. The other challenge with a purely open source build is everybody wants something different. For myself and my family I want a pretty bare bones minimalist setup- basically an insulated tent that I don't have to setup or take down.
I hear you on the larger base vehicle and I have looked into it a little but for right now I drive the truck everyday and I don't really want a 3rd vehicle if I don't have to have one. I need to look at the numbers again and see how heavy I need to go but I don't want to haul tons of water and I don't want a black/grey water setup anyway so that frees me up a little.
Hadley- Like I said before, I go back and forth on the XP shell.
The most important part of this thread is flushing out a bunch of ideas and getting lots of opinions before I get committed to anything. Thanks for the help!
