I found a bath tub that perfectly fits the bathroom space on the Mack. More of a deep shower tray really. Usually found in poodle parlours; it could bring in some extra earnings through casual campsite dog grooming.

Great idea for the truck. It will make a great camper. I imagine you have looked at a bunch of truck campers for ideas as well as potential parts. Possible addition of a slide would give you more room if you require extra.

I'm looking at a lot of idea sources for the truck. The RV industry, tiny houses and big-sleeper trucks. The usable space is small for such a large heavy vehicle and doesn't make sense in some ways but there is enough room for two people with all their stuff. I would love to build in a couple of slide-outs but it would be beyond my engineering capabilities. The biggest extension will come at the back; with a 8 x 8 foot fold-up deck. With an awning and canvas side screens; this will be the primary lounge area.Click image for larger version

Here are some pictures of the fold away two-burner hob that I made; which will also relocate to the outside kitchen and slide out BBQ.

I thought the truck needed some more windows but couldn't be bothered with hacking about with the exterior. So I went for the optical illusion look. Cheaper too.

Just finished door through to bathroom area and drawer front. Then went on 3 week trip to Europe; all the time I was thinking "Could have nearly finished the truck by now."

Going to be a solid unit. Can't help but notice the "night vision" lights in the ceiling.

I put a couple of roof lights in the bathroom/utility area. Would liked to have used the 14 inch ones but the steel roof beams were too close together. Roof is quarter inch mild-steel diamond plate and fitted two 11 inch roof vents. The electrics is next on the agenda and is in a bit of a mess. It could take some time.

Working in the snow is slowing progress. But still doing a bit; fitted the fridge and made the top part of the shower stall from some reclaimed alloy sheeting. That metal is so cold to work with in the snow.

Have you got any heat on inside the unit? How is it performing?
