Re: RedNeck Camper

This is an awesome project you have going. I've endeavored the same thing about the door for the same reason; the front passenger not being even with the driver. I've always wondered how Class A RVs manage to do that.

Re: RedNeck Camper

With the mid door, keep an eye in parking lots and driveway aprons. It is a little lower, you don't want to bottom out!

Re: RedNeck Camper

Nice work,
It will be the best mod you will have done so far. It will open up more possibilities in your ever changing layout. Now you too will be able to argue with the navigator(discuss) missed turns like me. The new space you gain where the steps were will be worth it. One thing I did was weld in a lot of extra tube to protect the passenger if we took a hit from that side before I put the sheet metal skins on. As far as steps from the outside for the new mid ship door, I built a two step set of steel that I throw on the ground. I would like to build some that are attached to the bus but ground clearance is an issue.
There are ones used by horse people that are made of plastic that are light weight as well.

Re: RedNeck Camper

Great job! I love this and honestly wouldn't even thought about doing something like moving the door. We've been trying to figure out a solution for the passenger seat and haven't come across a solution, so we'll have to check this out. Thank you for posting

Nice job on the relocation of the door. Look great! You'll love that DT466.
