Home built diesel RV

The family that builds together, stays together.

What an experience for this whole family to partake. Wow!

Wow....That's a lot of work. I wonder why they left it a tandem when the whole box was made out of wood and fiberglass(pretty light). Should have pulled the front diff out and made it a single axle.

Way more stable with the twin screw than a single. Great build.

The story behind the build.

Check out the rooms built for the kids! Way inventive solution!

What...no slides??!!


LOL. Seriously, very nice project. I've built a couple of boats, restored a couple of others, and built a cab-over camper. Building a motorhome would be big task but very rewarding. When I was younger my dream was to build an ocean-going sailing yacht and sail around the world. Then I divorced that wife and got a new one and that yearning went away.

CJ-one of the reasons my 1st left was she was so worried I would go out and buy some big-a??ed fifth wheel trailer. Haaa, sure showed her-didn't I.

Looks like a neat rig. The only concern I would have (as a parent with 2 kids) is fire escape options. The girl's room appears to perhaps have one exit option and the window is about 3" in size. Looks like from the design a larger window could be installed though.
