LED strip lighting is one of the best ways to create warmth and ambiance.

You all are doing a great job. Sooner than you realize the old girl will be once again strutting her stuff. Thanks for posting your work.

Great looking build. Thanks for sharing. Never saw a truck camper with the fold-out bed in the back. Will be following your progress.

Happy Mother's Day all. When asked what I wanted for Mother's Day I said peace and quiet so I can finish the interior walls and wallpaper them. So that is what I did today. Hard to see but the wallpaper is one up in the cabover.

wagonqueen, Nice blog! Quite the project.

Thanks for the support! We are moving close to the finish date. Working on cabinets and running final propane lines and electrical lines. Here is a pic of the over the cab LED's that light up the entire camper. It is especially cool through the panoramic window.

Flat screen TV is installed and so are the panoramic window curtains. Used a T rod with curtain wheelers.

Many years ago at work we were told we're getting a transferee from NY State to our yard in CA.
Happened to notice a 1/2 T Ford with one of these TCs on it pull in the gate, 7am on a Monday. Yes, a 1/2 T! He had an extended front bumper and on that was a LOT of large chain wrapped around the frame ext. Even so there was very little wt. on the front wheels. The guy had towed a large U Haul also!! The driver was not aware that he had grossly overloaded that poor Ford!

OMG... that is funny. I can't imagine a 1/2 ton carrying one of these. Even with my V 10 350 Ford Dually, I still get the jitters...
