Glad you had a great time Overland! Looking forward to hearing more about the trip. Truck/camper is looking good! Time to go put my mess back together! Its my Friday off. :wings:
Just read through your build thread to get caught up with the work on your camper. Looks like you have some good projects going.Glad you had a great time Overland! Looking forward to hearing more about the trip. Truck/camper is looking good! Time to go put my mess back together! Its my Friday off.
Great build and work! In this pic, I noticed what looks to be a Go Light on the front of the camper. Is that what it is and if so, how did you do the wiring to control it or is yours a wireless model? I have one that has a wired controller and been trying to figure out how to control it from the cab if I mount it on the camper.
Great build so far! I'm wondering if you can explain more about your propane system and it's safety components. Are you housing the tank in a sealed locker of some sort? Where did you run your propane lines? Did you use copper or flexible tubing? Any detail photos of the propane system? I noticed you have the marine safety cutoff(I found the same unit on defender.com).
Also, any more detail shots of your plumbing system? How does the drain exit the camper? I see FWC uses a plastic fitting, though I think it would be much better if it were brass or SS...
Thank you.Friggen awesome inside and out!
Well done. True craftsman.
I bought the Reflectix at the local hardware store. But it is available online, amazon and other hardware places have it in various sizes.Not that I need it yet but where did you buy the reflectex stuff for the windows? Can it be used for insulation around the tent area?
Yes, it is a GoLight. I was asked more questions about that than anything else on the camper.Great build and work! In this pic, I noticed what looks to be a Go Light on the front of the camper.

I am liking those pretty blue folding buckets your using. They would work great for the gray water on my Hawk.
Any source for those?
Going to use a collapsible bucket to take care of the grey water when needed.
One of these Camco buckets showed up on the boat this year and it is the best folding bucket I have used. (Camco does seem to make some nice products.)
So I have ordered one for the camper. (Not surprisingly amazon has the best price.)
Thank you.I ordered my Hawk loaded and ready but I admire your fortitude for doing it your way.....great job!
If you mentioned it before, I missed it... From the above picture it looks like your are using a hitch receiver step, which you carry inverted while traveling?
It is by Tentrax. They make ''unlimited off road trailers'' and one of their accessories is this hitch step. There is really no info on their website, but here is where it is listed, third down. http://www.tentrax.com/accessories/accessories.html
These are expensive steps, yup $255. I was able to get mine used for about half that, still expensive though. But it is solid and lightweight and that fits the bill.
Given their cost I will be fitting a storage space for transit inside the camper, stay tuned.
Hey, Pass Lake is just about three hours up the Lake from me! (Back in my climbing days, that railroad bridge provided some rainy day entertainment.....)Wow so nice!
Tacoma and FWC is a perfect set up.
I see you are from minnesota. Not too far from my area.
Hi Jim, I missed your PM while I was internetting on the road, but I did answer your question back on post 1069. Let me know if you have any more questions.OH,
I PM'ed but maybe you didn't get it. Why did you go with the FWC shell instead of ATC shell? Especially when the ATC shell is cheaper.
