In going back through this thread, I am not seeing an explanation of what appears to be a really crappy job of paneling the interior right before our trip, so here it is now:
After we cut and fit the wall and ceiling insulation, it was too cold to foam it in place before our trip. One night...
We already have a ladder. A $440 folding aluminum one with a custom-made drop-down mounting bracket and quick-release pins. It's detailed in our build thread:
It is surprisingly roomy. When we moved to Texas, we had three LARGE animal kennels, a queen bed for my wife and I, a single bed for our daughter, a toilet, a hot plate, laptops, a heater, a large cat tree, a Christmas tree, food/water/clothing for all three of us, pet food bins for all the...
Ours is 16 feet long and 8 feet wide.
The departure angle is fantastic, even without an angled cut on the back.

Diesel engines are not like gas engines- even a tiny amount of...
How many people are you trying to seat in the cab?
The rear cab wall is a structural member- the center rear cab mount attaches to the bottom of it, and it is no little thing. I'm not sure how you would be able to cut that wall out to extend the cab rearwards, and still be able to have that cab...
Have you seen our thread?
We built a rear "drawbridge" door to serve as our back porch, and it is powered by a pair of 3,500 pound winches with automatic load holding.
Our winches are located at the rear, in the upper...
