That worked. I always enjoy seeing what folks around the world are using for RVs. Just wondering what your motivations are. From your sig line, it seems like you are going to keep the existing box on the Isuzu. Do you do a lot of "stealth camping", are you driven by lowest cost, do these types of setups give some maneuverability advantage, or is it merely a case of enjoying the transformation process?

Keeping the box, has 2x2 steel frame, so pretty strong compaired to sticks & staples, low cost $3000 and i can build it as money allows,
been working on it for two years now, very theraputic after marriage breakup
been to a camp ground for ten days for a vacation, even survived flooding rains.

When i get the 12v side sorted some "free camping" or as you guys say "boondocking" will be the idea

Sorry about the marriage issue, but it seems like you found a healthy, and cheaper than traditional therapy and better for you than massive quantities of Fosters, way of dealing with the stress. I hadn't thought about the construction benefits of keeping the van box. Post more pics as you go...
