This page I wrote for my old rv website before developing the Vanabode as the best travel vehicle for cheap easy long term road trips. People still like big rv's despite the much greater cost and trouble to operate, so here's what I know about them.

Bathroom: Vanity is done, sink and plumbing all done. Just have to pull the toilet flange and dope the threads.

Bathroom vanity: Another shot to show the plumbing better.

Bathtub: Tub is secured in place. I'm not going to cover and finish it until I do a water test. Can't do that until all hot water tank is in. Can't do that until the siding is on. Can't do that until etc.

Bathroom ceiling: Shot straight up from the floor. Plywood covers the vent hole from the roof side.

Bathroom door area: Can't get back far enough for a decent picture - still have to build the door and mount it here to a ceiling hanger system.

Bathroom: As seen from the outside of the doorway looking in.

Bedroom: Base off the bed to expose the fresh water tank.

Plumbing and fresh water: All the lines are in place and the water pump. The fresh water tank is going to be replaced later with a larger one. This ones too small.

Finished bed: Well, if I get into the doghouse, I have a place to sleep now. Where's that foamy?

Midship shot: It's taking shape - finally starting to look like something other than an abandoned shed!

Ceiling: As viewed over the bedroom area. Note the speakers in the ceiling. I put my driver bit right through the one on the right. Grrrr! A brand new speaker never uttered a sound before I wrecked it.

More ceiling: Taken from the bathroom door towards the front.

More finished ceiling: Over the kitchen area. First hole is a vent, far one is A/C. All the ceiling needs to be completely finished is the batons over the joints. That's slated for "Final Finish".

Front ceiling: Forward speakers and bottom of upper bunk. I know the light is crooked - its not screwed down yet. I want to replace them all.
