Looking good indeed!! What a number of skills you must have to produce something like that. It looks like a welded tubular frame of what type metal? And a slide? I'm captivated. Have you ever thought about converting a dolly into something that could carry both a car and a 500 lb motorbike? I'm currently working on that, but only into the mental part so far (which could be the downfall :-))).

We're in Phoenix (near Medford), at the South end of I-5. I've rebuilt the front and back of our '92 11.5' Caribou (wood frame), added an aluminum roof, and built a hitch extension for towing that turned out well, but that's about the extent of my camper "building".

Best of luck.
