Once you use liquid nails and sheating, the walls are much stronger than anything you would find in a traditional motorhome/trailer. I used self drilling and drywall screws and I was pretty close to being done with framing in less than two days. It is definately the way to go if anyone is considering using the metal framing !!!
Oh and I love your bluebird conversion, It looks great. I am getting excited again, but I want the shorty this time.............
I will be sure to vist Lake Isabella. Looks wonderful.
I have grown to love metal framing. So much easier than wood, in my opinion. I started sheeting walls last week and ran into a few spots where I wanted some extra backing. No problem, grab a 20 ga stud and make a few cuts. Done and Done! Did not even have to leave the interior of the bus.
I have added a bit of liquid nails to some key areas but so far I've been relying on metal screws. Do you think I should liquid nail the entire thing?
