One of my brothers grand children, he has four of them in his care, two girls and two boys. He has to look after them as they are permanently in his car since his son died.

Now the roof is off I have started to work on the fittings and the lining. All six overhead light brackets have been fitted as well as the holes through the frame to run the wiring.


I have also made a bracket in the two back corners to carry the strap for the wiring to travel up and down with the actuators.
Then the fun started, the ceiling panels had to be flexed into place, as they were a tight fit. Once in they were not coming out again.


I still have the narrow wall sections to finish before turning the roof over to fit the single roof sheet in place.

Well the roof is now finished, bar the trimmings. With some help I fitted on the top sheet.
After checking and rechecking I cut the sheet, and grooved the underside to make the bend for the roof.


Then it only was a simple job of gluing the sheet down and clamping.


Anything loose in the shed was then put on top as a weight.


All I need to do now is trim the edges down and then fit the edging. I might fit the solar panels next as well, as it should be easier when the roof is off the camper.

No I don't really, but if I could I would like to start testing it in December. If that does not happen I will not be worried to much.

As I am waiting for some bits for my roof to finish it off, I have started on to main shell again.

The back wall is the first to work on now, I am sheeting the out side, this has come along better than I hoped. I hope the rest goes as well.

Top section first.

Bottom prop plate fitted.

Tail lights done.

The inside back wall is made to be removable. If I ever need to work on the actuators, I can remove the back inside wall in two panels.

I will start on the drivers side next.

I have a bit of catching up to do as I have been working trying to get ahead on the camper., The roof on the camper. Using my brothers gantry made lifting it on easy, and it lined up with my actuators first try. It was just a matter of fitting the bolts in and it was done.

I have fitted the solar panels on, but I still will need to wire them in at some stage later on.

I have also been working on on the outside walls, these have come along well, although still need trimming.

took this photo after fitting the roof on, it will give you a idea on how it is going to look when finished.

The front storage section has now been framed up, with shelving, the sheeting is the next thing to do. I found I had made a mistake in where I fitted the water filters so then now need a plumbing change. Better to fix it now than later on.
