Beautiful. You guys have done an excellent job! Congratulations.
You've given the rest of us who are still working on conversion something to strive towards.

What camera system did you use? I need something like this because my mirrors are okay, but in the rain, they became next to useless.

Which brand heater did you use?

I believe you'll enjoy having an awning. The shade they provide over windows helps reduce heat, and allows you to open the windows to let in fresh air during a late spring or early fall rain storm. It also gives you an area that can be turned into a "screen house" where you can relax outdoors instead of being cooped up inside. I highly recommend adding the awning.

Re: Ready but not finished.

@TygerCub:
As for the camera system, I just used vandal proof cameras, they are about $80 online, and some head rest monitors, that were about $70 online. the monitors have 2 inputs each allowing for 4 cameras.

Hot water heater was a Rehemm RTE 3, not a lot of horse power, but does what we need it to.
