Yeah, I think you are right... I just need to figure out how to do a 3/4 raise... i.e. keep the integrity of the roof where the driver and passengers sit (about 8ft back from front... then bump it up a foot or so for the back 20' where the kitchen, shower and bedroom are.
Shitty thing is I traded my plasma cutter last fall for an annual inspection on my airplane... wish I still had that machine. (got the plasma cutter on trade for a S&W .40 to a shady fellow... seriously who trades a $1000 plasma cutter for a $400 gun?...someone up to no good?) I guess I'll be cutting with a wheel.
A roof raisin' is definitely in the plans for this summer... I'm planning on not attaching anything to the roof (just the three vents through it) and only running minimal electrical in the channels above the windows.
It will be pretty well built out by then, but the videos I watched and some of the commentary here make it seem like a reasonable task (when its a bit warmer out).
