    curiosity killed the...camper

    subterran...I was thinking the aluminum siding over wood as well. I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel, but at the same time, I can not see why it would not work. I've even thought about a minimal steel frame for strength, wood as fill in, and then aluminum siding...maybe even an epoxy...

    curiosity killed the...camper

    Just thinking around this...if this question has been asked, my sincere apologies, as I did not find it in my searches. Why, could one not use a similar construction method to create a slide-in/pop-top camper as they do a tear drop? as in all wood construction (in some of them) As far as...

    A little help, please...(re: MOD D90)

    I need a little help if possible, probably from the GA and Southeast folks. I recall reading somewhere, I think it has been on ExPo, that there is a Land Rover mechanic that does extremely good work, in Americus, GA, or near there at least. I can't seem to find mention of him anywhere though...
