It’s been awhile since I updated this thread, I’ve been putting them in the What Did You Do Today thread.

I fully framed and started paneling the platform bed. Plenty of storage underneath and I installed some wood blocked to act as a jig and keep it in place until final install.

The plan is to run carpet pad on the wood and up on top of the bed. Place to sit and place to sleep for the rare overnight trip to a show or a swap.

I found a pretty sweet textured carpet the same color as the van that I’ll run inside. It isn’t shag but it is pretty thick. I figure 20’x12’ will be plenty enough for the floor and bed with some for left overs. I still have some bracing to install on the top, my left over wood came up short.

I’m running some 3.25” mdf baseboards along the edges for trim. Super cost effective and they install very easy.

The painter started the door jambs and roof yesterday so I can start prepping for carpet and interior. Next week I’ll pull the ceiling panel, remove the wing, and run some wiring.

I set a deadline of 3 months to be able to take it out on the road. I want two months of shake down driving. So far, the Born Free Chopper Show is on for the end of June. Plenty of shake down driving will get me ready to head south for a weekend.

This town ain't big enough for the both of us
