If that fun trip didn't win over everyone, nothin' will. Thanks for sharing. Travel is the name of the game.

2)way to hold back door open so we don't get squashed!!

3)some kind of lock box

4)stairs/steps into back

5)remove back 12' of seats for storage and room for 2 cots

6)remove/seal up entrance door and install co-pilot seat

7)wall off cockpit and sound deaden it
