Dormobile interior build

Just started redoing the interior on our Dormobile. The truck was torn apart and largely rebuilt in the UK 3 years ago and we put a Dormobile roof on then. I did a short term interior last year for a Baja trip but decided to go all out now on a really custom interior.

I'll post up pics here.

This is worth watching and long at about 50 minutes, but worth the time investment.

Would love to. No specific plans though. What should I look out for?

Nice. What platform do you plan on using to rent it out? Like, Turo or your own website?

I'd be down for that.

I use Outdoorsy. They are pretty good. I plan to do it full time when we get back in July. Well have 2 or 3 trucks to start. You're down to rent one or rent out your own? Give me a shout and we can talk.

Yes the sedimenters catch nearly all the particulate and water.
It's amazing how much schmeckley will get trapped.

Very nice job on the outside door for the propane tank.
What did you use for the seal?
Did you make the door?
Can you show a picture with the door closed?

These are a copy of the FCX dual jerry can holder boxes. At the time I needed them they couldn't or wouldn't ship them to US so I had them fabricated locally. They seal well.

Here are a couple of pics. We covered a window to make the electrical control box. Will be painting that black.
