I did get a chance to start playing with the new led light, and it seems to do better than the round ones that I have currently.

In order to do it justice, I'll wait until I have a few more pictures so I can show the differences.

Stay tuned.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Just curious if you have an idea when you'll finish this project?

just my thoughts

I think when it is finished is the proper answer. I am sure there are hopes, but when it is a DIY and also a dream, God only knows.

Depends on how you describe "finish".

In the case of when will it be at he point that there is absolutely nothing left to do.... well, that's kind of anybody's guess, as I don't really have a hard date to get it done.

On the other hand, I think, realistically, I may be able to have it road worthy and able to camp in it later this year.

Will every piece of trim be in place at that point? Probably not. Then again, after a camping trip or two, that should tell me if I need to change something else to finalize things.

There, that should be about as clear as mud... Lol.

That is pretty close. As I said above, I hope to try some things out later this year, possibly finish up next year.

Unfortunately, I only took one shot of this, and didn't realize it was out of focus, until I looked at it on my computer. Oops.

I started waxing the drawer sides/slides today in preparation for the install.

I put my framework into place, took this picture, and then screwed this puppy into place.

Next step was to put the drawers back into place.

When drawers and slides are set up properly, ... as my mom used to say, "they move like greased lightning".... Lol.

Ok, maybe not quite like that, but they do slide very easily with very little effort.
