Really cool build, it has inspired me a lot to build something similar. Have a couple of questions:
-About how much would you say the camper weighs?
-What thickness ply did you use on the exterior and interior?
-It is hard to tell, but it looks like you used some sort of heaver timber for the cabover section to support weight. How did you go about doing that?
Thanks! Any info would be much appreciated!
I've been meaning to weigh the camper but have not got around to it. A very rough estimate would be around 400 lbs. But that's without anything built yet inside. On the exterior i used 1/4" luan (some sheets differed as much as a 1/16" in thickness) and 1/4" luan planed down to 1/8". In order to support the cab over I made two 5" beams by laminating two strips of 5/8" spruce ply per side. These beams run from the rear top corners of the camper to the front of cab-over.
Im in the design stages of a project. I am really into the design that you have and I want to build something very similar. I was curious how the camper has held up. Any cracks or anything like that from flexing? Any leaks in the roof system? I was hoping you could post more pictures of it in the finished stages, specifically the roof design (hing system, sealing, gas struts, etc.). More pics would be awesome! Thanks for the info to this point, it has been very helpful.
