Got a bunch done over the past few days.
Today was spent buttoning up a few straggler chores.
I may load her on the truck tomorrow and move her up to the house...

Not past your capabilities for a nice set of tool boxes on the tray for the Ford. Fantastic looking project so far.

Thanks for the encouragement.
I think a few boxes ad rear underbelly slide out are in store for the Ford.

Today was a good day.
Loaded the camper onto the Nissan and brought her up to the house.
The little Nissan handles the camper pretty well.
But the Ford will handle it better and tow while doing it....

A few updates:
Gray water / charging system and battery box are all completed.
The deck lumber is treated and cut ( but not mounted ).
all wiring is done.
Next week we will be sliding the truck under the coach for final fit out.
Then it's off to the boonies for a shake down.
I can't weight.

Got her loaded up Saturday.
Now time to fit the skirts and side storage bays.
The coach will be slid to the extreme rear of the deck then the panels that enclose the side storage bays will be added .

We managed to get the storage lockers buttoned up yesterday.
The added space will come in handy.
I have a rather large punch list of things still remaining to be done .
At this point we do have a functioning rig though.
Today the wife and I are going to take the rig to the woods for the first time for a short shake down trip.
Should be fun.

Got most of my gear loaded on board yesterday. Filled the tanks and off we went.
We wanted to do a good test drive with a proper load .
The rig runs and drives very well.
It's nice to be able to carry the majority of the gear externally.
We had a good day.

Finally got around to building the retractable rear stairs.
The system slides on a set of garage door tracks on 2" rollers.
It is supported from the receiver hitch. Hope you enjoy.....
