Yeah I move mne every couple weeks as the sandy cow pasture I keep it in starts to give way under the tires. I suppose I should get some boards to park on.
I need to tag mine still.
Any pics of the paneling you used to replace the windows?

Whoever suggested furring strips was brilliant. I just bought some packs of them and they're cheaper than the 2*2 I bought before and dry nor mushy

Weathers been OK. Close to freezing at night but warm enough to work outside in the day without a sweater.

The bath is almost fixed in place. I still need to put the outlet pipe but its almost done. The mount for the bath is done. Maybe some moving around so the hole misses chassis members.

Hmm... I sealed a lot of roof leaks but it seems a couple remain.

Solution - caulk the suspect areas then go along every roof seam with aluminium tape. That stuff lasts forever and shouldn't crack. Finally, its paintable so I can happily paint over it.

The bath was a waste of time. No way could I make it fit. Aside from being too long, the limited movement I had was insufficient to allow me to move the drain out of the way of a chassis member and the low ceiling means raising it was not possible.
